Buy rare and hard to find music on vinyl records and used CDs from thousands of online record stores. Manage your music collection with a detailed discography on rock, electronic, hip hop, classical and other popular and obscure music genres.
I definitely won't. Speaking as someone who lists records on eBay and Discogs as side job, it grates my nerves to see to people abusing the set your own price system. Maybe you'll get some sucker to buy one of your very common and largely un-valuable records at an inflated Amazon seller price, but really the outrageous prices you're applying do nothing but drive up the already fictional collector value.
As far as your implication that it's Discogs that has suggested these prices, well, I just find that hard to believe. Just a cursory glance at your inventory and the sales statistics recorded for each record reveals that to be untrue. Also, plain common sense that, say, a Radio Faces LP has never sold for 30 dollars and is in reality a 4-10 dollar record at best. That's just one example. In addition, you have every record listed as Mint or Near Mint which tells me you likely have little knowledge about how to accurately grade a record or more likely are full of shit.
Quit trying to shake people down. I see this shit all the time. Not only is it annoying to me personally, it's a disservice to everyone.
Actually, it is both of those things. Do you know what mint means? Never played. Never even opened. Or near mint? There is NO FUCKING WAY that you own two hundred records in that condition. That's dishonesty. Flipping records for an insane, unreasonable markup is greed. You have records listed for a 200% or more markup of their USED value. And that's a generous calculation.
I just don't respect people who practice price gouging in the collectors market.
