Hello,..Recently someone sold a sealed "50,000,000 Elvis Fans" Rca Victor Lsp-2075 (e)--for $500. saying the original black RCA label with silver letters makes it a collectable 1st press stereo'(Mono came out in '59 and this an "Electronically Reprocessed" stereo in '62) There are so many variations of this album, whats going on with it? Thanks

and I thought $250 for the sealed first press mono a while back was a little high... And isn't it interesting that the seller can describe the labels of a sealed record? But if there's one field of nutso collectors, it's the Elvis folks. $80 for a plate with his face on it. $25 for an Elvis Pez dispenser. The same 20 songs reissued again and again and again.... and actually selling again and again and again. And they don't always really know about records, they're just obsessing over him as an icon. Sure, it's rare in sealed condition, but Average Joe Elvis Fanatic wouldn't have a clue how to value such a thing. It's a compilation, for pete's sake. Reissued. With fake stereo. Rolling Eyes

Wanna make a quick $470? There's a sealed copy on Discogs right now for $30....
