Does it seem to anyone else like the sale of really rare and desirable albums has fallen off a cliff since the pandemic started? I haven’t been buying much VGM lately, and this seems like the reason why.

By the way, if anyone has a Sankyo Orpheus Final Fantasy VII music box that you’re willing to part with, if you reach out to me I’ll make you a very serious offer.

Considering there were only 100 made and they typically go for 5 figures on the rare occasions they come up for sale, it would need to be a serious offer. I don't have one, but I wish you luck on your search.

One album which hasn't been explicitly mentioned yet is Hoshi no Kirby ~Yume no Izumi no Monogatari~ / Mako Miyata. A complete copy sold today for 156,000 yen (YJA link). Incomplete copies also regularly go for 100,000 yen.

This album is pretty hard to find complete, and it's for an iconic game, so I'm not surprised by the high price.

I used to have that album, but I sold it several years back. Whenever I see it listed at 50,000 yen or under, I get interested in trying to reacquire it, but the price quickly shoots out of range. It's definitely the album I most regret selling.

I made a CD-R copy while I had it, so I can listen to the music whenever I want to, but I still long to get the original once again.

I think the price of all VGM is up pretty substantially since this thread was made back in 2011, and even over the past few years. Things are more expensive than ever.

To be honest, if you re-bought the album for 90,000 or 100,000 yen, even though that price sounds ridiculous for a CD, I don't think you would lose money on it if you ever wanted to sell.

Well, after all these years I've finally come across someone selling the Guilty Gear XX Λ Core: Secret Gig CD, but surely this has got to be some kind of joke, right? I mean there's no way someone would seriously buy it for 980,000,000 yen, that's beyond outrageous.
