I would love to get my hands on this!
I would also love to get my hands on the $3,000,000 necessary to purchase this collection.
If someone were to give me 3,000,000 I don’t think I would spend it on this anyhow…
And did you see the cost of shipping? 3-5% of the selling price.
I wonder if this is real…
i guess you would spend the rest of your life checking each record/cd/tape at least once.
besides that i rather search my library by hitting the F3 key, than doing it with ladders and stools.
i personally wouldn’t place a bit on this junk even if it was for just 100$ incl. shipping (essentially because i’d still have to buy/rent a house to store it).
Wow, crazy, I want to see a picture of the actual collection, it must be huge!
I read about this earlier this year. I believe this is the original listing (includes photos):
I first saw it mentioned on boingboing:
He only got 2000 more than he wanted…His starting-bid was 3 million.
Talking about a bummer auction… well at least he sold the collection.
thats just overkill. And people tell me I am crazy just because I have a few records myself.
But I would buy it if I had three mill, definately.
i would bid on Norman Cook’s lp collection.
probly some 20 or so golden loops i could get from that.
the one i posted was later in time. i’m guessing it got posted again b/c there was problems w/ the buyer of the original auction. no one bid on the new auction, though.
i’m with keith on this one. i would hate having all those records. i cringe at the idea of adding more records to my record collection of doom that plagues my living room.
I’m pretty sure this is being sold as a museum collection… and that being said, I hope whoever buys it treats it as such
