Default searching CD "lots" on YJ

Hi guys, is there a method to search CDs lot (wholesale) on YahooJapan?
I haven't find any search field with this option.
Otherwise are there specific kanjis that means lots or wholesale? Or which kanji do japanese seller use to specify a wholesale auction?

You could just reverse-sort by price, as lots tend to be more expensive than the albums on average. However, you might miss some really good deals that way.

I have been using 枚 (a counter, for example 3枚) and セット (Set) to search for multi-item auctions. Often you will see that auctions that have more than one item include either "*枚" or "セット" (or both). I think the best thing is to either make a search for "枚" (this will be a wider search that will include single albums with more than one disc, as well.) or "セット".

Current search results under オークション > 音楽 > CD > ゲーム音楽:

枚: 424
枚セット: 170
セット: 172

Just thought I'd share this link since we're talking about YJA lots:

http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b109848631

80! That math just doesn't add up. 465,000 yen = ~$5,000 USD / 80 = ~$62.50 USD per album. There are quite a few rare / hard to find gems in there but is it just me or does that not sound like a good deal at all?

A few nice albums there but mostly $5 Street Fighter and SNK albums. I don't see it selling anytime soon for that price =D
