    NYT Article about the value of vinyl.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/19/a...ums-price.html

    The bigger the fan you are, the more you'd pay.

    interesting stats from bandcamp about sales of physical product!

    I often goose the price a little bit on Bandcamp if I'm feeling flush so I get the general theme of the article. Not sure if I'd pay $77 for vinyl though.

    Get the money while you can. Period.
    That being said, I wonder if the customers willing to pay those prices are the same folks that are willing to pay similar prices for 'limited edition kicks' and just stack them in a closet

    If it's anything by the Starland Vocal Band, the seller will have to pay me to take it off their hands, and transport it to the dumpster for them.
