Insomnia gift edition on ebay

Post by ajw2910 » Mon Apr 21, 2014 4:23 pm

It looks like one of these being sold by CD is currently at $2247! Is that right?

I have one if anyone wants it for that price!

Not sure how that's possible since it sells for around 70.00

I thought there must be a mistake too. I checked the bid history and one guy driving up the price only has 2 buys in his history.

I put it under watch and would bet it will be delisted.

odd - I was watching this and can see it in my watch list as sold for $266.05 with x 4 buyers pushing it above $200!!!

can only assume they thought it was the S/L ver?

According to Brian James Freeman of CD, the listing was pulled.

I'm confused, are we talking about this item http://www.ebay.com/itm/Insomnia-Stephe ... 1279819667

still more confused that it made $266.05 with a couple of established ebay buyers driving the price up to $260

is that really the going rate for this book?

I think it sold at a premium because the seller was Cemetery Dance (it got a lot of publicity). I also think Tomas' listing is a bit low:

I'd say in the $100-150 range would be more accurate. (There were 3750 copies done of the gift edition.)
