It'll probably be relisted.

I can't decide what's most wrong about this:
-selling off your U2 collection
-doing it on e-bay, which just reeks of profiteering.
-or charging as much for it as for a mid-priced car.

Whoever's doing this is either one greedy bastard or else really, really desperate. Either way, it's kinda unsettling.

LOL! what does the guy expect? $23,000 and no bids? Yeah right! He says he has over 140 rare U2 cd's yet one of the rarest records I know is a toss up between Beatles and Elvis, (Beatles one mainly for the cover) and the last I heard they were both equally valued at £20,000 so this guy has no chance,I bet if you put all the U2 rarities together in one collection,they would not be worth $23,000 going by my big Music Collector book!
This guy is in dreamland!

well 142 cd's at 23000 is just under $162 a piece. i guess it's possible but highly unlikely. maybe if he posted what the cd's actually are...

This guy's an idiot. Somebody should e-mail him to see exactly what he's selling.

Maybe it's just me but it seems no CD's are worth that no matter whats on them. I'd like to know whats on them though, I'm curious to know how the guy came up with that price.

Sounds like this guy must need 23 grand in a hurry, if he wants to sell off what looks like a lifetime of collecting.

Rare is just another word for bootlegs. Why buy a bootleg when you could easily download a concert off the net?

I would rather be interested in rare U2 vinyl myself.

Why are you people so mad? It's clear that nobody will bid this much. Let him learn from his own stupidity and the laws of economics.


"this man needs to be hung by his balls and shot.....that collection isn't even worth a thousand dollars"

You need to calm down. He's not forcing you to buy anything or ripping you off. He's telling you exactly what he has and he's asking a price for it. If you don't want to buy it, you don't have to. Damn, people, what's wrong with you?

WOW! I have most of those CD's - and the ones I'm missing on that list, I didn't want. I also have many more CD's.

Therefore, if someone is willing to give me $22,000, I'll gladly sell you *my* CD collection. Why, that's something like $160/CD. Note the bargain rate!

As long as he is up-front about what he is selling, what's the problem?

If someone paid the price, good for them. If not, the seller will have to lower it.
