three weeks pass...

honestly with beatles stuff you need as many details as you can. If it's a sealed pressing from the 1980s it's not gonna be worth nearly as much as a sealed original copy. With sealed records it can be tricky because there are no matrix numbers or label variations to reference. Lotta unknowns. Known unknowns.

Ha! I have a sealed copy of Let It Be, definitely from 1970 or 1971 because he bought it right before he met my Mom and she had a copy already. Original price tag of $2.99 is still on the shrink. I always assumed it was worth about $50 as they pressed a million Beatles records.

Meant to say, *my dad bought it*

one year passes...

while cataloguing all my stuff on Discogs I found that I had a sealed copy of OK Computer, and looking at the bar code and copyright I believe it is this one:


I think I bought it in 2006 or so. I was big into Radiohead then, but apparently not big enough to actually open the shrinkwrap

What should I do with this? NM copies seem to be going for $300-350, a sealed copy may be as much as $550? I'd much rather sell it and just buy one of the reissues.

always worth checking actual sales history as opposed to "for sale" pricing, which can be uh a little bit optimistic at times

yeah that's just looking on discogs, I know a lot of valuable stuff is often listed at 50-75% more than it's ever actually bought for

I couldn't find one that sold in the US - only listing I see is for $319, appears to be open though

but then y'know a "NM" version sold for $464 five days later, so really who knows

you should open it to find if it's a hot stamper

I don't need to open it to know that it absolutely is

Come to think of it I better add a couple zeroes to the asking price

the funny thing about looking this up is that now the ads on every single website are trying to sell me a brand new original pressing of OK Computer
