Original Colorfinger CD for Sale

I have an original CD that I purchased while living in SF in the early 90's. I really like the CD, but never caught the Everclear 'bug'. I found out by chance that this cd is not collectible and am willing to sell it. I also understand that there are some bogus copies floating around for sale. The artwork and lyrics card is intact. Please let me know if there is any interest. There are copies available on Amazon for approx $200 w/o artwork. I will post photos of the cd and cover and also anything that distinguishes a real cd from a copy.

Thanks,

Bill

Keep in mind it doesn't cost anything to list a product on Amazon, so just because you see something listed there, doesn't mean it actually sells. I think you are at least a decade too late to get $200, let alone more than $200. $200 was the going price when Everclear was at the height of their popularity, in the late 90's and early 2000's. Since that time the majority of the people who would pay that price already have at least one copy of the CD (several people on here have multiple copies), combined with the availability of the music digitally including some sourced from the studio master tapes, but to mention decline in active fans the going rate is less than $50.

Here is an example of the two most recent Ebay auctions for the CD:
$32.00 + 2.01 shipping on Oct 29, 2014 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/COLORFINGER-CD- ... 2c8f7a7218)
$41.00 + $2.68 shipping on Aug 22, 2014 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/COLORFINGER-CD- ... 35db2f5e9a)

I know of several more examples, but Ebay only saves sold auctions for 90 days.

Regardless, good luck to you, I hope this information helps.

It's true, I haven't seen a Colorfinger CD sell for more than a $100 in years, majority have been under $50, sad cause they really used to be worth something.

Even if you put it on ebay, I don't think you'd hit $100 now a days.

Can you post a picture of your copy? I'm always looking for a good clean, non promo copy (no hole punch, or saw marks on the spine, or booklet cuts on the top right.

Also on the back of the CD it should have the following markings on the underside in the center ring to be a real original shindig version and not a bootleg

"A3003" "12/90 1DA1X"

Thanks for your replies. It's not worth the hassle to get the CD packed up and sell for $50

Late to the conversation, but $50 for a CD that just about nobody wants is a pretty good deal. Surprised that it's not "worth the hassle." Maybe Bill is hoping the value will return someday. I think CDs in general are less collectible than they were. You can get anything as a download and less people care about owning a physical copy.

I agree completely, if he bought the CD in the early 90s then maybe he spent $20 if it was brand new, and probably $5 if it was used and now he can get $50 (at best), sounds like a good investment when compact discs were never intended to increase in value. Then again, who are we to question his opinion.

Yeah, I took it as he valued the CD more than he valued $50. He said he liked it, so that's cool.
