Re: ***Official RARE singles/promos, vinyl, VHS thread***

Typical Situation have been sold a couple of times these few weeks:

one for 426 dollars AND one for 375 if I'm not mistaking. Furthermore, one Typical Situation Promo was removed by eBay because it is illegal to sell promos, but the bid was around 370 when it was removed.

There has been numerous very interesting things for sale all throughout February

    "Technically," selling radio promos is not permitted because the studios send them only to get airplay. Essentially, I think they say that you never "own" them and that they remain the property of the studio, etc.

    Personally, I think that's pretty lame, but I can see their point, I suppose.

    i found a couple of neat cassettes yesterday. One was an everyday sampler with 4 tracks. The other was Some Devil (released in India i believe). Didnt know some devil even existed in cassette form.

    anyone know what show the live ants on this disc is from? Just listened to it for the first time in awhile, and was just wondering if it's listed somewhere or not.

    [SIZE=2]1. Ants Marching (UTTAD) (4:31)[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]2. What Would You Say (UTTAD) (3:41)[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]3. Typical Situation (Edit) (3:57)[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]4. Ants Marching (Live version) (4:45)[/SIZE]

    It's from some of the two shows at Lupo's:

    January 30, 1995
    http://www.antsmarching.org/tour/Vie...hp?ShowID=2409

    January 31, 1995
    http://www.antsmarching.org/tour/Vie...hp?ShowID=2410

    Don't know which though. All I know is that it's my favourite recording of Ants that I've heard, next to the CP version

    I have a question. I kind of look at these things in the same light as rare baseball cards. Is the packaging and CD condition as big of a deal with these? I mean value wise. If you have a sports card and the corner is bent you are literally screwed value wise. It would turn a 400 dollar card into a 150 dollar card even if it is the slightest bend. If the packaging to these are messed up does it affect the value greatly?

    Here are some examples:

    Well the BTCS Vinyl sell for close to 400 dollars sealed, and it sells for 250 dollars tops, if its opened.

    Tripping Billies: It was originally issued in a jewel case with a blue sticker on the front. If you find a Tripping Bilies promo that lacks this promo, I would say that the bidders won't place bids as high as if the sticker was on the original jewel case.

    The Gorge In-Store Sampler: I sold one for 245 dollars. It was sealed, and in a beautiful condition. A month later, I saw one sell for 80 dollars - it was not sealed, and it had a nasty sticker-peel on the front of the cardboard cover

    Two Step: In MINT condition (meaning all artwork and CD is flawless) it usually sells for 65 dollars. If there's anything wrong with the artwork, it can only sell for around 35 dollars

    the list goes on

    The worst part was having to put all of the effort into creating those auctions time-wise. But its all good, I intend to list the stuff again soon, along with a bunch of other stuff I found that I forgot about.

    I would reccomend to all ebay DMB sellers that they include a VERo statement at the end of their auctions, that might at least head off some problems because it lets people know that you are aware of what you are selling and that it fits into the authorized list of items.

    Just saw this on ebay:

    http://search.ebay.com/dave-matthews...opZ2QQsbrsrtZd

    If it truly is unopened, then this is quite a find, and I think the price is incredibly reasonable, considering.

    I dont think this is one of the suplus 2000 complete packages the WH sold in 2002 in the dmband.com store for $15 a pop, but hard to come by nevertheless.

    Its not mine, its not a friend's, I have no interest in it whatsoever...I just thought I might link it for someone that is looking for something like this.

    There is some good stuff on ebay right now:

    grey street

    when the world ends

    typical situation ( same seller that has sold a dozen of them)


    the grey street and when the world ends have bids of $10!! that is a total bargain for those cd's. The typical is at about $60. I am starting to question the authenticity of that seller's cd's. How do you sell a 4 to 5 hundred dollar cd for that little? And then do it over and over and over again?

    Yeah, that seller with the Typical CD.... I really don't understand how that can be real. He's sold about 10 since February. But I've seen one of his copies, and it look exactly like the real deal, the CD is the exact same, and so is the artwork. He must be some sort of BMG executive friend

    The thing is, what he's doing is changing the old value/hype of the Typical Situation into something completely different.
    We, the collectors, have been used to the Typical Situation Promo as being the "crown jewel" of DMB promos, and now, all of a sudden 10-15 copies re-surface, and it won't take too much of an effort to grab on of those bad boys compared to earlier.
    A year ago, Typical hadn't seen the light of day for a few years, unless it was actually removed from auctions on ebay...

    Re: ***Official RARE singles/promos, vinyl, VHS thread***

    it just seems so unusual. I would be surprised if there are more than a couple hundred of those typical's in existence.

    i know that making duplicate inserts is very easy, but you would have to have access to a pretty expensive artwork scribe to be able to make the discs.

    Perhaps he does have a connection with whomever produces the cd's or with RCA or BMG. But seriously, the first couple he sold, were sold for over 400, and there were several others in the high $300 range. If you know your cd is that rare and collectible, how is it possible that you could continue to sell it in the mid 100 range?

    i just dont believe that all the sudden in 2008, the most expensive DMB promo (save BAMA 002) is just all the sudden as common as a so much to say?

    as an owner of a typical situation, it pisses me off.



    i just checked and saw that there are a couple of two step singles on ebay as well.

    Yeah, it pisses me off a little, too... Actually SMTS is rare these days. I've seen one SMTS US Promo the last 5 months or so
