A Few For the $1,000 Bin

Shall we update the $1,000 bin? Why not.

No surprise on this one: Tommy Flanagan Overseas, Prestige 7134. This was an original pressing. The record was in VG+ condition and the cover was VG++. This one sold for $1,606.

I’d have loved this one from the same seller, but, alas, it is not an amount I spend on individual records: Cliff Jordan, Cliff  Craft, Blue Note 1582. This was an original pressing in M- condition for the record and VG++ for the cover. It sold for $1,555.

Hank Mobley Quintet, Blue Note 1550. This was an original pressing. The record was listed in VG+ condition and the cover was VG++. The price was $1,025.

  • I lost out on that Manusardi on Dire from “sweedeedee” and then thought about the few records I’d bought from him in the past, all of which were graded M- but showed up closer to VG+ and didn’t feel too badly about ‘losing out.’ He does get top dollar for some very nice pieces, nevertheless.

  • I’m tired of buying overgraded crap.

  • Cliff Craft… I just bought it. I forked out $12.= for the, yes, CD. It was available through “these sellers” on Amazon. “Used, Like New” it says. So far, my previous purchases that were advertised as “used, like new” all turned out to be still in their cellophane wrapper, new and unplayed. So I guess it’ll be the same this time too. 1500 bucks for an album like that, well, if only I could, then I would! 😉
