ebay vinyl record sales figures

Here are the results from the top five ebay sales as reported at as of 10/13/2007

An impossibly rare (and possibly impossible) Beatles Yesterday and Today butcher LP topped eBay sales at $10,000.00, receiving only 1 bid. Someone was rapacious. The messages in this listing were an interesting read of history, opinions and possible apocryphy. Who did what at what factory? Who had the only sealed copies? Truth is the truth doesn't matter. Some records are to collectors like prostitutes to a horny coal miner.

Next, a Blues 78 RPM by Jay Bird Coleman on the Gennett "Ah'm Sick And Tired Of Tellin' You (To Wiggle That Thing)" / "No More Good Water - 'Cause The Pond Is Dry" sold for $4,522.00, receiving 14 bids from a starting bid of $99.99. In the #3 spot, a signed Elvis Aloha from Hawaii LP from the estate of Jack Lord sold for $2,827.00, receiving 18 bids from a starting bid of $800.00.

A private press Psych 45 RPM from The Human Expression "Love At Psychedelic Velocity" sold for $2500.00, receiving 5 bids from a starting bid of $500.00.

And last, a Northern Soul 45 RPM from Jackey Beavers "I Need My Baby" / "Love Can Never Grow Old" sold for $2,247.22, receving 4 bids from a starting bid of $0.99.

“Manuel Marino is a former artist who decided to strike out on his own after’s copyright scandal in 2000. His studio, Marino Sounds, provides audio for game, television and multimedia projects at as low a rate as possible in order to actively encourage business from the indie scene. Projects such as Derek Smart’s Universal Combat and the X-com inspired UFO: Alien Invasion gave Marino a certain kudos, and his current work on the Morrowind ITP (Italian Translation Project) comprises a further step towards the mainstream. “Being ‘indie’ is like being in a big family. I feel that other independent musicians and designers are my brothers, and that they deserve my help,” he told me. He’s enjoyed the game experience so much that he’s planning to establish a full-time dev team.” (Paul Taylor, Music4Games)
