    Zion Dub (Carl's) for 25 euros, maybe in 2005... I thought I overpaid because it's kind of short, but turns out it's pretty rare. Was going for like $500 a few years ago

    got this 1st pressing NM for $1.00 on ebay about 6 years ago because I misspelled his last name in the search...and so did the seller. Nobody else bid.

    About ten years ago I bought a lot of 600 8 and 4-track tapes because the seller mentioned Velvet Underground and Velvet Underground and Nico in the list of artists. I ended up winning and they were all unsold store stock and along with the first 2 VU tapes on 4 track, it included an 8-track of God Bless the Red Crayola, and multiples of 60's crust classics like Buffalo Springfield, Love, Cream, etc. along with a bunch of soul and jazz titles. I ended up selling a bunch to undergroundalbums.com for $300 (he offered $150 for the 1st VU tape, but I declined). If anyone out there needs complete runs of Herb Alpert or the Baja Marimba Band, let me know.

    sweet kala

    The one that comes to mind is this one:



    Got a dg og in ex shape a while back for 0 $$. Dude listed it without knowing anything about the record, offered no specifics. I won it for 30$, thinking to myself what a score if it's an og!!! I waited and waited, nothing came, feared the guy had gotten cold feet realizing what he had. Then he sent me an e-mail saying that by accident he'd mailed it to someone else and was refunding me my $, grudgingly I gave him the benifit of the doubt and forgot all about it. 2 months later the LP arrived in the mail free of charge with a note explaining that the LP had been returned to the seller and he was sending it on to me. :beerbang:

    Last year I saw this going for $90 or so from a well-known euroman dealer, but found a copy for about $20 ppd. on Musicstack. Dunno what it typically goes for, but it sure ain't easy to find a copy, period!

    $24.99 on eBay about 8 years ago, nobody else bid on it. I didn't even know what it was, but it looked cool and I was bidding on some other things from the same seller.

    Not a record, but kinda related...


    Like new with brand new Ortofon dj cart $155 BIN with free shipping, might have been listed a full 20 minutes.
    Dude didn't ship correctly, so it arrived with scratched dust cover caused by platter.
    Ended up getting full insurance back somehow,
    then later sold the cart for $60.

    So in the end it's like I was paid $60 to have a brand new 1200.

    Nice to see that some of these are recent. Not sure if it's that I just don't have as much time to scour the innerwebs for bargains or that fewer records are under-the-radar now, but digging seems expensive these days.

    most memorable would be the chappell library lee mason with "shady blues" for 99cents on ebay.

    A couple of months ago I bought these 3 brazilian raers out of Mercado Livre (brazilian "ebay").
    There are some sellers at Mercado Livre that know nothing about what they have for sale, so some times I grab some nice stuff for cheap, like these 3 LPs.

    US$20




    US$30




    US$30

    I knew about Apolo 11 and Bruno Solis' albums, but never saw any of them for sale.
    Pra quem sabe das coisas LP is the "easier" one to find. I found 3 copies, because it was totally under the radar.

    man, all I ever see on Mercado Livre are the sellers who know nothing about what they're selling and charge $300 for a $10 record...

    Yeah, this is the case for 99% of the sellers, but a few of them sleep on what they have and price their stuff cheap.
    The Apolo 11 I bought from a seller/store from Porto Alegre that prices their records according to the market prices.
    I couldn't believe when I found it and the price was R$40. :holygrail:
