I bought an Under One Flag pressing of Blood Fire Death for $40 or $50, vinyl in EX condition but cover in GD condition. Not sure if I got ripped off or not but it hasn't bothered me at all

I suppose, but I wouldn't say "overpaid" if I thought it was worth it.

I bought the Agalloch Wooden Box after it went out of print. I have no idea why.

Depends on what you mean by "overpaying," but if something falls in your lap that you've been wanting forever, and it's in EX/NM, why not pay an extra $20 or whatever? That $20 ought to be worth the having the record NOW, instead of scouring used shops/egay/internet forums etc for a long time, looking for it at a steal price. If it's something I really want, I have no problem paying a slight premium from time to time, assuming it's a high-priority want and is in killer condition. Sometimes you just gotta bit the bullet and get the shit you want.


Pretty much sums up my feelings on it mate.

Spot on, unless you're a "collector" who never listens to records and only cares about market price horseshit, why not pay a bit more to get a record you can enjoy for longer?

I tend to bid on ebay a bit higher prices than I actually want to...
One thing I really overpaid, but it was absolutely worthy: the 'Desolation Propaganda'-Boxset of Those Opposed Records. I just liked the guy who was selling it and I knew the condition was fine - else, there was just no one selling that, expecially because the name of the owner is on the boxset (on mine it's erased Cool)

Does it count if you overpaid by mistake, but the mistake is so stupid that it might as well have been conscious?

I just found a Dodsengel 7" on ebay from a European seller, and the italicized price was $21. Or rather - I thought it was. In fact I didn't notice that I was on ebay.co.uk and the italicized price was in GBP. Basically I just obligated myself to pay about $45 for a 7" that isn't even hard to find. I was thinking "fuck it, 20 bucks is about what it would cost from Europe anyway."

I want to put my head through a wall. Oh and if anyone knows where I can find the 10" for three times its fucking value let me know. Laughing

I hope that's a good EP mate!

No smugness here because I'm sure I'll do another balls up in the near future Mr. Green

Smugness is appropriate. Mockery is mandatory. I should be fucking flogged.

Cue someone turning up and telling you they've got it for sale for $10 in their list

Or a flock of idiots that read this and immediately decide that is the record's current value. My apologies, discogs buyers.

only for rare stuff that i don't see for sale very often.

I bought the first press of Rabid Death's Curse for 250$, which i could probably have gotten for 100-150$ if i waited. problem is, i might have to wait for years.
