July 29, 2017: Selling Off My Pristine CD Collection (Some Are Over 10 Years Old!)

Selling Off My Pristine CD Collection (Some Are Over 10 Years Old!)

July 29, 2017

It's sad. You slowly build your collection throughout the years. 99% of them are in pristine condition and still with the original protective plastic pouches. Most are about 10 years old now, while some are almost 20 years old.

Sadly, one realizes that you have to let some things go...

Such was the feeling while I was cleaning up my collection. Some are rare and hard to find. I realized that I don't have enough space at home, and some of them, I don't even open them anymore (I have mp3 copies in the hard drive).

I'm selling 1/4 of my collection of all original CD's for a small price of P2,500, para hindi naman lugi. If you would total the prices at which I bought them, it would fetch around P10,000!

Here's a sample
