Sold on Ebay for $3million.

contains 3 million records and 300,000 CD's

http://cgi.ebay.com/The-Worlds-Greatest-...1QQcmdZViewItem

Kind of makes that "$10 back with a new eBay MasterCard" statement seem pointless eh?

The guy said the estimated value of the collection is more like 50 mil, and he has been offered 28 mil before. (I guess he is getting old and sick and needs to sell it off)

Finally sold it, huh? A buck an album. Of course, there's a lot of duplicates from what I understand, but wow.

You know, I watched this when it was still live. I kind of wonder if the buyer is really a true buyer. So many of these biggie sales end up getting bid on spoof bidders. I looked at the buyer's previous purchases and they were all small - like under $20ish. Can't imagine that it was a real bid. But, we'll see.

I just read some of the Q&A with one guy scared of backlash from other sellers due to the boycott issues! Pretty funny! I've got 3 mill to spend on old records but I may not be able to get that $10 piece of crap next week from poc4less 'cause he's mad at me!
