Of the 350 CDs considered in the previous post, there were some that command absurd prices on Amazon (although, as previously mentioned, such prices would undoubtedly plummet once somebody else lists at a lower price). I've chosen the 10 most expensive and will look at them here (and I don't think it's a coincidence that Music Magpie aren't selling any of them, presumably because they don't have a copy in any condition). That said, things may have changed since I last checked about 12 hours ago.
I was going to separate "New" copies from "Used - Like New", "Used - Excellent", etc., but it seems a bit pointless when looking at prices like these. And after all, even a CD described as "Good" can be more or less as good as new.
In the classic reverse order of course:
