Kinks, Bowie and Queen are the big ones, though.  I really like the TG outtakes, too, so bummer that's missing. Still no way I'd pay anywhere near this.

^^^^ Agreed. People can get pretty greedy about that kind of thing. Too bad, as an incomplete set, if it were priced reasonably, it could be a great chance for someone to test the waters, at least. For what they're asking, anyone who cares already has a set, so I kinda don't get the point. Oh yeah, people can be greedy.

i bet that doesn't sell for that astronomical asking price

On discogs, the tri versions of Bowie, Queen and Kinks are up for sale for around 350 USD. I guess you could get the whole set for less there. Nice try 😁

ANYBODY SELLING SHIRTS?

Looking for some early ones: the Ozma-era "WIZARD OF OZ" shirt - the original Christopher Lee Dracula - the Fiend Club.  And any other cool shit you might have.  Sizes L-XL only please. 

Will pay a decent chunk-o-change.  Feel free to DM me.

If I had those shirts They'd be hanging in a frame on the wall for the rest of my life.

I kind of pulled back from letting go of my old tour shirts when I set up shop at the regional record conventions, because I've learned that at least some of the peeps who buy them turn around and sell 'em for ridiculous amounts of money on ebay. I thought I was being a nice guy, by selling old shirts I wasn't going to wear any more, at reasonable prices, so someone else could actually enjoy them for a while, like I did. Even at bargain prices, there was one guy in particular at a record show in Eugene who kept trying to wheedle my already cheap prices down to nothing. Later, I figured out why. Lesson learned. I'd sooner give 'em to my grandkids than let some flipper scalp me and than make a mint off my wares.

I feel the same way. Lots of shirt and shoe flippers around. Shirt flippers are asking, and getting, +1k for the early melvins shirts.

Markets are funny like that. Leave enough triage opportunity and some middleman will come along and turn your charity into their profit, ultimately increasing the prices for everyone. Better for the bands to either keep things in ready supply to keep prices affordable, or for everyone to price their resale goods at market prices.
