What is the going rate for Benaroya Hall vinyl?

CB6978CB6978 Posts: 44
Original pressing. 

I can’t find much online (eBay, etc.) at the moment. None for sale and I don’t know how to find past sale data. 

Thanks in advance.

  • I bought one of these when they first sold them. I have never opened it but have moved plenty of times since then. 
    If I open the plastic to make sure they have never been broken, does that drastically reduce the price? Looking at it, the plastic is already open where the number is so not sure it would make a difference. 
  • From my understanding, all the copies plastic was peeled back so they could be numbered. I think that if anyone still has these sealed, they should get them into the hands of people that want to play them. Sell it now, Get that small fortune!

    Yeah I think it’s in the $2K range, unless it’s autographed by the band and sold by Matt Cameron’s son in which case it’ll cost $1,200. Don’t ask me how the economy works.

    Condition is more important than being sealed. Near mint opened copes sell for almost as much. If the box is damaged I don’t think being sealed is going to make much of a difference. If it isn’t damaged, why do you think the records might be broken? I’ve moved 3 times in the last 8 years, not a single broken record.

    Open it,  spin them. Then you’ll know for sure if they’re “broken.”  😆 
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    Unless you have two copies what is the purpose/reason of keeping a record sealed?

    I really just have no idea how sturdy records  are. I bought the set along time ago and they are literally the only records I own. Thanks for the info. Sounds like they should be fine.

    Fairly recently? I’d love to tell you exactly when but time stopped moving last March. The lucky guy made a whole YouTube video about it which I can’t find at the moment but I’m sure someone else can.

    1. No record player yet and gathering up vinyl is aspirational (that was me for a while)

    2. Collecting vinyl as an investment (that's me with other stuff)

    3. Wanting to have a physical copy of select albums but can't listen to everything due to volume and time constraints (this is me now - I'd say about 1 of every 10 albums I've bought over the last couple years is still sealed)

    No one seems to question this when it comes to guitars or jerseys. It works under the same concept.

    Personally I think it is different.  Unless the guitar or vinyl cover has an autograph on it I would spin/play it.

  • if you keep a record sealed for years on end then there is a real chance that it may not be playable. The plastic on records isn't meant to stay on for years and years and with seasonal changes in the weather that plastic can expand and constrict and possibly warp the vinyl. 

    Sealed record pricing is actually a really bad price marker as that record may not be playable when it is finally opened.
    Sealed vinyl is bad vinyl.

    It is insane the amount of money people are willing to pay for PJ on vinyl.  Most of their records are pretty crappily produced for vinyl.  OG Ten and Vs presssings are definitely worth getting.  I think I have heard good things about Vitalogy too, but I don't own that OG and have not listened to it in over 25 years on the original Vinyl.

    Don't get me wrong, I have all their records on vinyl and enjoy playing the records, but soncially, their studio records especially, most don't cut it on vinyl as they are compressed and not optimized.  

    Benaroya sounds nice on vinyl, but I would never pay more than a couple of hundred for it.  

    Scarcity is an odd duck.

    PJ definitely has no audiophile releases.  Original US Ten is terrific and is comparable or better to the initial CD but yeah its the rarity/cool factor that makes things like Benny so sought after.  The cool factor/memorable show factor plays a huge part with Benaroya.  I have a PJ record where only 10 exist and i doubt its worth a Benny.   Its a mix of things.  Theyre all different. 

    We have ridiculously expensive hobbies :lol:
