Here’s one that sold for more than $3,000 the other day: Sonny Clark, Cool Struttin’, Blue Note 1588. This was an original pressing in M- condition, both record and cover. It had the advantage of being sold by Euclid Records, which is one of the larger sellers on eBay and has an excellent reputation. This copy sold for $3,416, which puts it among the Top Five we’ve recorded on the Jazz Collector Price Guide. If you click the previous Price Guide link, it should take you to a page where all of the records are sorted by highest prices first, which is always a fun way to view the Price Guide.
Speaking of prices, we’ve got some nice items closing tomorrow at pretty reasonable prices, and we just put up some interesting new items that are closing next week. Among the more interesting items we have up now are a Lexington Avenue pressing of Paul Chambers, Whims of Chambers, Blue Note 1534. This is closing tomorrow and is currently about about $180. For next week
we just put up a very nice copy of Sonny Rollins, Moving Out, Prestige 7058. This is in very nice condition and is an original pressing. We also put up a copy of Herbie Hancock, Takin’ Off, Blue Note 4109. This is noteworthy in that it has Hancock’s autograph on it. We’ll keep you posted on how we do with these and some of our other items. We also have a few more for the $1,000 bin, as well as another bunch to add to the Price Guide, so please stay tuned.
