Selling old CDs on Ebay

If you're interested in buying a bunch of loose CDs that may or may not play, I'm getting rid of all the ones I had lying around my house.  I threw away hundreds of CD-r's from my college pre-ipod days, but didn't want to just throw away the real CDs.  I figured this was the only real way to get rid of all of these.  Bid quickly, the price is skyrocketing through the roof!

Damn! That's Quite a Collection.. :o
I've got over 200+ cd's myself that I need to back up as MP3's and I may wind up doing the same thing!

I throw all my cases away when I buy CDs. They take up too much space.

That's a good question.  i used to keep everything in the case logic cases.  They made the journey from home to college many times and finally out to San Diego.  The cases just sat on a rack in my room for a long time, i would assume and hope they've been thrown away. 

Please note all warnings about the condition of the CDs.

Ironically enough, I just bought a record player.  A shockingly high amount of new releases are still released on vinyl and available at insound.com among other places.  I have a ton of records bought second hand during college and i have so much digital music that i'm at the stage where stuff doesn't get listened to anymore, so its a neat way to get reacquianted with some of your favorites.

It pains me to read this. It's bad enough that so much plastic is used to store so much bad music, but then to just throw away the case because it "takes up too much space"? Why not give the cases to a friend whose CD collection has several cracked cases instead of just tossing it into the garbage, where it won't degrade for thousands of years?
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

You say some won't play because of scratches....then why include them in the first place?

All they're going to do in the long run is add to the weight of the package for whoever wins.

And....FYI.....you probably could have collected and boxed up the plastic cases and sold them as bulk offering.

Well I don't really have any inclination to do any more work than is necessary.  I don't have a CD player except in the car or computer, and I don't want to test them.

All right, I put in a bid.  As a bonus, if I win you don't have to go through the hassle of packaging them up and shipping them.

I looked for a way to add a pint of Exponential Hoppiness to my bid, but eBay apparently doesn't have the technology to handle that yet.

I'm going to register "beerBay.com" as a domain, I think.
