Looking for large well cared for collections within 5 or 6 hours of middle Tennessee.
Oh come on, not here as well.
This “looking for large collections” thing was doing the rounds a couple months ago on Reddit
Will sell my collection for a million dollars, can drive to middle Tennessee.
I will sell mine for a cent less
large collections of what, turds?
is it a scam?
I'll sell you my whole collection for right around 100k. Probably the best deal you're gonna get.
I don't know if it's really a "scam", but I do know that it's totally not in the spirit of this forum. It's a guy looking for some sucker to offload a huge collection he can comb through for resale. It's gross.
Honestly, if you wanna drive to New Orleans, I got a whole half a store I would sell you for like 4 grand. hmu.
I don’t agree with that sentiment at all. I resell records all the time but my basis on doing it is that I buy records to listen to and find new artist. If I don’t like the album I sell it, thinking that just because I don’t like it doesn’t mean someone else might not, and I don’t sell at high prices. I want to sell to people who collect and actually will enjoy the records like I do.
If you want my entire collection, I'd consider offers around median discogs value ($60K) in cash.
I have nothing against people selling records. I have something against those who are seeking out huge collections indiscriminately with the sole aim of selling them on for profit. That's not in the spirit of this forum, and it (in an ideal world, at least) is not in the spirit of this hobby.
I'm just playing Devil's Advocate here, but this is essentially every used record store.
Business versus hobby though
Yeah, but those are pretty transparent about what they're doing.
Well @Badgm42 the tribe has spoken.
My offer still stands on half a used record store for about 4 grand. You could have the entire Barbara Streisand, Dan Fogelberg, Elton John, Zebra & Journey catalogs.
This is strangely tempting...
Sure. I'll sell you my entire collection for discogs max price.
