  1. I've been replacing my original Pet Shop Boys CDs with the Further Listening double CDs as I find them, but even now that I've got the Very/Further Listening double CD, I couldn't get rid of the original because the Lego case is too special.
     
  2. I should have held onto my lego case. I get rid of the originals when I replaced them with the Further Listening releases.
     
  3. I got rid of all the originals, bar Very Lego and the frosted Bilingual. The only original I went back and re-bought (sort of) was Actually, when I found an original US 1987 CD pressing on Manhattan Records.

  5. Cross-posting from Vinyljustice - hiya x

    Does anyone have experience with offloading large collections of CDs to collectors or second hand stores?

    I’ve got about 250 that I’d like to get rid of. Discogs says the MINIMUM value is around £350 for them all. I’d happily part with them for about £200.

  6. I like Be A Rebel. But not THAT much.

  7. It's been a year or more since I last took some boxes to my regular used store haunts, so things may have changed. It also might depend on location. But if I took a box of 250 CDs to any of them, I'd be offered about £125 at the most. Probably less. Even 50p was becoming "generous" in early 2020, just before CV19.

  10. Terrific now I’ve bought the vinyl and downloads already. Ffs!

    …no doubt I’ll still get it for my NO cd singles collection…

  11. The Olivia one is now £3.56 on Amazon UK... bought it simply for the novelty of a CD single existing for a song I like in 2021!

  12. Hi gerls, I'm back.

    How would I go about ascertaining the price of signed CDs? I have quite a few signed copies but I can't find evidence of them having sold in the past.

  13. I’ve sold some of my signed CDs in the past and I found eBay was best for this because then the auctions speak for itself. Usually I’d get £20-£30 but it also depends on the artist.

  15. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could help me please?

    Anyone here have good techniques to use when switching CD cases without damaging the booklet and back cover? Is there a special way to switch over the back cover and make sure the spines are placed straight? (Professionally as if you just bought the CD from the CD shop?)

    Thanks in advance.

  17. As long as the replacement case isn't smaller than the original (newer, inferior cases seem to sometimes be like this), you shouldn't damage anything. Also as long as a booklet isn't really thick (hello Roxette's Don't Bore Us!) again it won't need to be spoiled and should slide in and out easily.

    I always take the inlay out by applying a little pressure on the corners/hinges of the rear case so that the plastic tray pops out, usually one corner at a time but depending on how tightly it's housed it may only need one little tweak to release. The inlay will fit into the new rear case without needing any alignment. They're perforated so that the spines go automatically into position. You can always gently run the edge of your finger along the angle of the inlay to make it a smoother fit and to look better when viewed from the outside.

    Some people slide booklets in from the right, some the left. Doesn't really matter too much, as long as you're careful and keep the booklet flat and straight enough to slide under the holding tabs.

  18. Thank you so much for the tips and for taking the time to write them out. Hopefully my future CD case swapping goes well.

  19. Taking out booklets with the static that effects it - slide in another piece of paper between plastic and booklet - easily slides out!
     
  20. That's a good idea. But yes, I don't know what modern CD cases are made of these days but getting the booklet out of them can be a nightmare - in the olden days they'd almost fall out of their own accord.

    That's always the best - or worst - example of a CD booklet. Both my and a friend of mine's examples have fallen apart too due to the sheer thickness of it.
