Topic: Slay Tracks starting bid $75

If anyone is looking for a copy of Slay Tracks I saw one pop up on ebay with a starting bid of $75. No bids yet.

Looking at the seller's username and scraping the far walls of my email memory, I think the proceeds would likely be going to a kind soul and longtime jicks-boarder smile

Oh yeah we know the seller. I might holler at him on FB.

Re: Slay Tracks starting bid $75

I should have come here first I guess instead of ebay. Im not asking a lot for what I'm selling, just trying to be reasonable and fair. Im selling mostly things I have additional copies of, plus some autographed stuff. Since quitting my job to raise my son and living on a tight budget, I dont have much expendable income. I'm just trying to raise a little money to take my girlfriend and kids to Montreal in the new year.

Best of luck. That's a great thing I think you've done, hope the time with your son has been great. I hope ends are meeting alright and you guys are happy and healthy. And I hope you get that trip to Montreal!

If you are planning to sell anything else, let us know. tongue FWIW my want list has basically whittled down to the RET BEGN live LP and, oddly, I have never gotten FTT on LP, just on CD!

Re: Slay Tracks starting bid $75

Thanks guys. Being with my son is great, I definitely made the right choice. I'm working part time in the evenings and weekends, just enough to get by. My girlfriend has a good job that she didn't want to give up, and rather than have my son in daycare I decided to quit the job I had. She helps too which is nice. I may list some other stuff monday or Tuesday when i have the time.

I think that's a great "sacrifice" to make in the name of family time. You've got your priorities straight. Hope the record ends up in good hands and that you guys enjoy your trip smile

If you place any value on the signature then that's really in line with the market, I think. Discogs says:

Last Sold: 10 Mar 16
Lowest: $45.00
Median: $150.00
Highest: $215.06

Some folks probably got it for a lot less when Spiral was selling his stash a few years back, but before then it was damned hard to find except for that "extremely rare records" fool on ebay who's had a signed copy listed for $999 for years now. He  currently has 3 copies on ebay, and thinks that the red "distributed by K" stamp on the back adds $150 in additional value.


I think I paid $120 or so from mine, shipped from the UK. Got SM to sign after a show on the MT tour.

I don't think I could handle the anxiety of selling off a record or two at a time. I'd sell one and then probably freak out and re-purchase it before I could sell a second. I'd probably have to sell to a record store and take a big hit.

Re: Slay Tracks starting bid $75

I think it was a fair price, starting at $100. I really had no idea what market value is or what it may sell for. Those listings of $1000 are crazy. And it went to a good home. It was hard to see it go but i still have another copy. I brought out my record player again and finally started to listen to some stuff. The first one I played was Malkmus' first solo record, it sounded really great after not hearing it for quite some time. Im definitely not going to let my collection go easily, I love it. And I have someone local now who would take these off my hands anytime.
