What about the people who really want it because they love the band, but can't afford those prices? Just saying.

Eh. I dunno. I see where he's trying to come from, I just disagree with it. He's screwing out his fans that don't have lots of money.

Lawl'd.

I like Jack White, but I just think this is a pretty lame justification for jacking up prices. Letting eBay dictate what you charge? Bullshit. I can get a White Blood Cells CD on eBay for like $5. Is that what he'd be selling them for?

And in the end, he says that all this boils down to him giving his fans what they want? Aw, pity Jack White.

Flippers suck but they wouldn't flip if people didn't keep paying way too much for vinyl on ebay. I'll never pay $150 for deja entendu no matter how bad i want it.

Good point. It's really not the people posting this shit up on eBay who are necessarily "charging" so much for the product. It's the people that are willing to pay out the ass. I mean, that's how an auction works. The people participating in the auction push up the price.
