Probably Bram or myself. However, I tend to pay a bit more for some pieces as you can see in the other thread. ;)

I can assure you that I’m not the \"best\" person to ask, but i’ve purchased enough vinyl over the last decade to have a decent idea what would constitute being ripped off. Let’s have your question and I’m sure plenty of people here will weigh in on it.

What about Light into Dark? Are you asking for value? Is it sealed or opened?

it was not quite a ‘top notch’ release.

so:
– make sure the vinyl is not warped
– make sure the vinyl is not scratched
– make sure there are no bumps or dents in the outer sleeve (it’s not really thick cardboard)
– make sure the inner sleeve is ok
– are the inserts there? especially: the booklet as the LP cames with a booklet…. (sometimes or mostly: some flyers were added too…)

opened state, with the above checked and OK…
i’d say LiD might fetch somewhere between USD 75 – 125 depending on the condition…
(this used to be way higher back in the days…- yep! i’ve been there and paid way more…)
(still: it’s all up to the infamous: ‘what anyone is willing to pay’-thing…: this seems to be an objective idea of the per se value of the item, though i really could see a LiD LP go for USD 250 too, even know… the market just fluctuates and you can never really tell…)

just make sure to check the vinyl and the sleeve are ok and the insert booklet is there.
then: make up your own mind if the price is right for what you’re getting.

good luck.

1. Agreed…not top notch. Although limited still isn’t sealed and was played.
2. Agreed…currently might fetch UP TO $125. Although, if someone is desperate enough they could find one on ebay currently for $260. You never know who thinks this is a good deal.
3. Agreed…the market fluctuates. Today I might be willing to part with $50 for something that next week you could get me to pay $150.

Figure out "what is it worth to you". Either to buy or sell. That’s the ultimate deciding factor for me.

back a couple of years, this went for $250-$300.

i think now, that could be lessened by around $75.

$75? i was more thinking $150, the last one i saw went for around $150.

Id gladly buy 5 copies if i had to pay $75 only each.

no, i meant subtract $75 from $250-300 (so you get $175-225)

well I got mine a couple yrs ago too,but luckily for a better price-around 150 incl. shipping to italy.
and in NM condition too..
since we’re talking bout prices..how would you price a grey tristessa nowdays?
last one i saw on ebay ended so cheap I almost felt bad for how much I paid for my copy instead..
