Here we go with another edition of Ebay Madness…..this time I am focusing on one of Canada’s best Metal exports, Razor, and their 1990 album SHOTGUN JUSTICE. So what is so important about Razor and SHOTGUN JUSTICE that there is so much attention on Ebay? No idea really, I’ve been able to find used Razor CDs with ease but I guess they are becoming harder to find, in particular, SHOTGUN JUSTICE……
Starting Price = $10
Buy It Now Price = $250
Bids = 1
This Razor CD auction started on April 4th and was sold April 5th when a “lucky” buyer decided that $250 was a fair price (for an original mint CD on Fringe Records) and bypassed the auction process starting at $10. The seller is from the U.S., offered decent shipping and a guarantee that the CD was mint and an original. I could tell by the auction description that the seller knew a thing or two about collecting because he makes it very clear that this CD was not a bootleg, reissue or a Greek and/or Russian pressing.
Starting Price = $9.99
Bids = 66
With the market price now set at $250 the day before, this seller from Sweden had an original near mint copy of the same CD on Fringe Records starting at $9.99 up for grabs. Turns out that there are a lot of people looking for an original pressing of this album because 66 bids later this one sold for 5 bucks more! This was an actual auction so if you look at the bid history there are really only 6 actual bidders and the winner is the one putting in astronomical amounts. All the power to him for wanting to pay big money! What I did notice is that while the bidding war was going on here for a full week, the BUY IT NOW auction above started 5 days after when the price got high. This auction at $255 ended early on April 6th.
Buy It Now Price = $199.99
Bids = 0 (auction ended by seller)
And while the two auctions above were selling in excess of $200, here is this Razor CD listed for $199.99 with BUY IT NOW…..a “bargain” at $50+ less than the going rate! I have to give the seller on this auction some kudos because he ended this auction a few hours after the $255 CD ended. Why sell your CD for less when you can hopefully get top dollar? The seller here states that he is a former record store owner and Metal fan and that he used to order an extra copy of everything so he could add to his personal collection. Sounds like something I would do! He also makes reference to the auctions above in his listing and calls out to the people involved in the bidding war…..maybe he got an offer? Who knows but he’s sitting on a CD that’s in demand.
Buy It Now Price = $70
Bids = 1
Maybe the former record store owner ended his auction because he saw this CD sell for $180+ less? This Razor CD is located in Russia and the seller has 100% positive feedback and provided four detailed photos of the CD. This one was also listed the day of the bidding war and it was scooped up quick at a real bargain price!
If you’re interested in owning an original CD pressing of this Razor album then there is a current auction from a seller in Greece that’s waiting for you to bid……it’s only up to $45 USD as of this post!
