A lot of money for an indie CD that could be hit or miss. The buyer is a major collector and posts at the Heavy Harmonies Forums. He had some money to burn so the trigger was pulled, that’s almost what I pay for rent each month.
Not to be outdone by the Lorraine CD, this 2002 special CD reissue of Maiden’s highly sought after vinyl E.P. fetched 33 bids. This CD was available via mailorder when you collected 6 special Eddie stickers from the 2002 reissue campaign for all the Maiden albums. Add postage to the stickers and you got this limited edition for probably under $10 postage. Problem was this “reissue” campaign was Maiden’s 4th pressing of their albums on CD in the U.S. (original EMI, Castle 2 CD sets from 1995, Raw Power multimedia editions from 1998, and this set) and it was an exact duplicate of the Raw Power issues from 1998, except for the slipcase.
I realize it was a limited edition but I’ve seen the vinyl, in NM/VG+ condition, go for less.
