Are these supposed to be good prices? Because they suck.

I got £120 for my Japanese red Blackstar. It sells for around £50 - £60 in Japan itself so once you add in shipping and import duty, the price rises to about £100. £20 for doing the donkey work to bring it to a Western audience is a fair price, I think. The picture disc is more expensive, about £80 in Japan just now, so they're a good investment.

The RSD 1984 is the same, prices have gone up. That was only available in limited quantities from Japan and the USA. I sold one about a year ago for £150 but the lowest I've seen it recently is about £295.

I don't know about the red vinyl Ziggy. I sold one about a year ago for £80 which I thought was a fair price at the time but if it's the Czech pressing, they can be a lot more expensive and £150 is about right.

The Toy is the limited edition 500 copies version from Casino records on clear vinyl. It seems a bit steep to me and I wouldn't pay it and I don't know anyone who has actually bought one at that price but someone will, since that's the price most sellers are doing it at, so if you want it, you're going to have to pay those prices.

Phone cards and the other two, who cares?

Here's my stuff for comparison:

$60 inc postage for the first one
$100 inc postage for the second and second one came with heaps of extras.
This is in aud.
I don't understand where they are 100 pound or more????

Like I say, it's shipping and import duty. £20 shipping and £20 import duty = £40. Add that to the cost of the record and you're over £100. Here's a pic of the very first one I just looked at just now. It's £72, so that's £112 just to get your hands on the thing.

These prices are nuts , I have 1984,but paid about £70 , the clear vinyl Toy for £325.00, why bother it's not even an official release , don't know about Red Blackstar, the phonecards, really ! Who's going to pay £600 for those, as for the others, Recall and Gouster are reasonable, if they don't go too mad.

But people paid about a tenner for the Starman picture disc when it first came out, look at it now. 1984 cost me about £15 at the time, it's just demand The scarcer the records become, the higher the price they command.

So for £100 you could be sat on £3250 worth of vinyl.

I think the biggest money to be made is from the limited edition 'David Bowie Is' expos. The yellow 'Let's Dance cost about 15 Australian dollars from the expo, I haven't seen it go for anything under £500. The V&A orange Heathen is another big one, iSelect is generally about £150 now, so if you have a full house of expo releases, they'll maybe have set you back a couple of hundred quid all in, but the resale value is a good couple of grand.

If you have these PLUS the full set of 40th anniversary releases, then for a comparatively low outlay, you're looking at a major return.

Without meaning to be boastful, because there are some people with far better collections than mine, but if I was to sell just my bootlegs, I'd be expecting to make about £15,000 on a good day for the lot.

It's not just the record companies who can make money out of Bowie!

It's sad how Bowie collecting has become more about how much you can make of items rather than enjoying the damn thing.

I know too many people who buy all these releases, keep the shrink wrapped in hope that they will sell them on down the line for stupid money. Pathetic!

Well, for someone like me who has no savings and is crap at saving anyway, having a potential financial return just from collecting Bowie bootlegs is quite good, I think. It's not something that I've consciously done, it's just happened through market forces.
