Stryper – The Yellow & Black Attack (Japanese import) CD sells for $899!

Stryper - The Yellow & Black Attack CD sells for $899.
I understand the need to have this CD for the diehard Stryper fan and for the serious collector: First, this is the original artwork. Second, the tracklisting is different. $899 is very steep and I hope the lone bidder enjoys the CD.

Metallica – …And Justice For All (1988) sealed longbox CD sells for $291.98!

Metallica - …And Justice For All (1988) longbox CD sells for 291.98
The sealed longbox CD craze is in high gear and people are paying very expensive prices. I understand the need to have this classic album in your collection but why sealed in a longbox? Aren’t you going to listen to it? If you have one already, do you need one sealed in a longbox for safekeeping? This nonsense makes me want to go out and look for these types of discs and start putting them to auction. Almost $300 for a CD that’s going for $10 used at the local record shop!

Pretty Wicked – s/t (1992) sells for 281.69!

Pretty Wicked - s/t (1992) sells for 281.69
This one is a repeat offender and it’s gone up in price! Last time I featured this CD, it went for $199.99 with BUY IT NOW. It’s up almost $82! I hope it’s good…..

Tempest – Hard Night CD goes for $185.50!

Tempest - Hard Night
I know nothing about Tempest and I didn’t find much online. I can vouch for the seller though, a major player in the collector’s circuit. I’d be interested in hearing this one, I like the cover art, and I would like to know what year this was released.

Warrior – Fighting For The Earth (1985) Japanese CD pressing ends at $152.50!

Warrior - Fighting For The Earth (1985) Japan import for $152.50
I have this! I paid a lot less but I have it! The seller is one that is also reputable and I have dealt with him in the past, always a good selection and good shipping to the U.S. There were 17 bids on this one, it’s a hard CD to find.

Twisted Sister – Stay Hungry CD for $150!

Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry (1984)
This is a joke right? $150 for a CD I can buy at any retailer? $150 for an album that is a used bin classic? Notice the seller on this one is new (Rating = 0) and the buyer had a negative rating (-1). Sounds fishy to me! Still, why would anyone list this CD for $150 and who would even bid on it at that price?

    Steve -
    The TS sounds fishy indeed…love the make-over to the web site. Say, besides ebay, what are some of your favorite sites to hunt for rare and out of print cds?

  2. Bill – Thanks for the input on the new layout of the site. I’m not an expert with HTML or CSS so WordPress has to get the credit.

    The TS CD is fishy but if there are people willing to buy, sellers will always prey upon the weak.

    Watch for a buying guide feature soon. I will include Ebay of course, maybe even some favorite sellers. I will list my favorite online stores and local brick & mortar stores.

    Hey, I was the guitarist of Tempest. It was released in 1996 and I actually still have a few of these cds laying around.
    Its good to know there is still some interest.

  5. [...] – Hard Night (1996) – $15: I did an Ebay Madness post that featured this CD way back in mid-October 2007. Back almost three years ago, this CD went for $185.50 on Ebay and it was one of the highest priced [...]
