Default Live At Cabaret Metro 10-5-88 CD

Why does this cd keep selling for $200-300 lately when they made 1000-1200 of them? I see rare stuff like the Tristessa grey 7" (pressing of less than 200) amongst other rarer items consistently sell for less. I get that it was handed out at the "last" concert but wth???

does this actually "keep selling for $200-300 lately"?
please provide examples.

or are you the seller of the overpriced copy on ebay, and are you trying to trick people into thinking that this is a normal price for this cd, as it "keeps selling for $200-300 lately"?

I wish. No I want to buy it but am not going to pay that much. $200-300 is ridiculous for that. I've just been watching eBay and keep seeing it go for absurd amounts of money. Not going to search the Internet for examples

so you've seen one copy on ebay for $250, and concluded that it "keeps selling for $200-300"?
ok. cool.

i agree, though. $250 is ridiculous.
but i doubt it'll sell for that amount.

Can't figure out how to load this screen shot but sp freaks tweeted a copy going for $329 on 9/9/15. Plus these other copies listed on discogs/eBay for $250.

Completed auctions

I see two recent sales in 2016: one purchased with a $300 BIN on March 23, and one bid up to $300, sold on May 16.

That $250 copy looks like a fair price to me.

Yeah fair compared to those 2, but they made 1200 copies. Why should it be worth that much when other much rarer items go for so much less?

just wait a bit longer. keep looking. $250 doesn't make any sense. you'll find an affordable copy one day.
