The 9 Most Expensive Record Store Day 2015 Flips On eBay

Burak Cingi/Redferns

Another Record Store Day has come and gone, and now we get to sit back and watch the lucky few who managed to snag exclusive releases turn them around on eBay for much more than they originally paid. We looked at auctions that had at least one bid — meaning that they will more than likely be sold for at least the amount listed — and these prices are only sure to rise in the coming days. This year’s lineup isn’t as as egregious as last year’s, but there are still some high price tags to be found. We only looked at auctions that were still ongoing — a list of completed auctions can be found here, and include Paul McCartney’s “Sweet Trash Mix” white label release ($388.91), Donna Summers’ UK 12″ singles box ($329.08), Third Man’s 78rpm repressing of Elvis Presley’s “My Happiness” ($300), and a few more. The biggest items being pushed by volume this year are Phish’s New Year’s Eve 1995 Live At Madison Square Garden box set and the reissue of Brand New’s Déjà Entendu, both of which make an appearance on this list. Check out the full list above … and stream all the exclusive audio you might’ve missed here.


9. KBCO 97.3 Studio C Local Edition - $100.00

A 400 run pressing of local radio station KBCO's studio sessions, which was only available in Colorado. Features live recordings from Tennis, the Lumineers, and the String Cheese Incident. All proceeds from the sale of this record went to the Colorado Music Hall Of Fame. [Auction]


8. Jurassic 5 - Quality Control: The Wood Box - $100.00

The rap group's second album, Quality Control, is collected on a 4-disc deluxe edition that's housed inside a wooden box. [Auction]


7. Heavenly Recordings - 7 And 7 Is... - GBP 74.00 (approx. $110.69 USD)

For Record Store Day this year, London-based label Heavenly Recordings put out an exclusive run of seven 7-inches, which are all collected into this box set. Bands featured on these include the Wytches, Temples, Mark Lanegan, and more. This is a UK-only release and only 200 copies of the box set exist. [Auction]


6. Red House Painters Box Set - $117.50

This box set of Red House Painters' first four albums isn't a true Record Store Day exclusive -- it's out tomorrow in the U.S. -- but these editions are numbered, and apparently aimed at the international market since they won't be getting an official release. [Auction]


5. Bob Dylan - The Basement Tape - $124.72

This reissue of The Basement Tapes came in a few different versions for Record Store Day, including this 200 gram "big pink" edition, which was autographed and hand numbered by Garth Hudson. [Auction]


4. Various Artists - Ork Records Complete Singles - $179.99

Numero Group put out this box set that compiles the early singles of influential DIY punk label Ork Records. The run was limited to 2,000 copies, and it includes early singles from Television, Richard Hell, Alex Chilton, the Feelies, and a bunch more. [Auction]


3. Phish - New Year's Eve 1995 Live At Madison Square Garden - $200.50

Phish's 1995 New Year's Eve show at Madison Square Garden is collected on this 6-disc box set, and it marks the first time that the band has put out a live concert release on vinyl. [Auction]


2. Brand New - Déjà Entendu - $242.50

Déjà Entendu is getting a general release vinyl reissue early next month, but the Record Store Day version comes with exclusive packaging (a paper bag), a lyric book for the album, a "Die Young And Save Yourself" patch, and some stickers. [Auction]


1. U2 - Songs Of Innocence - $393.00

Coming in at the top is this numbered deluxe double LP edition of U2's Songs Of Innocence. The RSD version retains the original test pressing artwork that accompanied the album on its initial digital release instead of the physical edition artwork featuring Larry Mullen Jr. and his son. This specific listing also has the benefit of being No. 0002 out of 5000. [Auction]
