Whats The Most Expensive Boot Ever

Recommended Posts

i'm sure that is F'all - compared to the old days that you hear about (in fact some poeple are prob old enough to have been there) - i know of some very, very knowledgeable person to pay lots and lots for the John/Weirdest boot when it cam out...(apperently money was restored and booter gone)

so bett o'brien is nothing - and is it a boot or re-issue?

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...e=STRK:MEWAX:IT £70.99 what the feck is going on:chinstroke:

Someone payed £80 the other day for the Mel Britt re-issue /boot

Is it a boot or legit ??? either way it should never be selling for £80

i can't believe some people haggle over the price of proper records in sales ,have the gall to say people on here overcharge for records ,when people are selling Mel Britt 2nd issues for £80:angry:

I think Dave was on about the time a certain person paid a 4 figure sum for it, but did get their money back.

I noticed with that Mel Britt the seller gave the matrix info as stamped - funny how they didn't give the other detail to ID it as a counterfeit.

The exact record was on popsike and sold in July 2005 for £39 - again the description said - 'original stamped matrix'. I guess they weren't lying in either case!! Though after checking in JM's he says - 'a clumsy attempt at a ZTSC MATRIX'

I have no problems in people wanting a boot or re-issue for the jukebox/play at home scenario but ALL of these should be in a totally seperate section on ebay.

If a genuine re-issue record or look a like boot goes for a few quid and the buyer is chuffed then fine - I would hope it's because the original is probably a fortune, or so rare it's almost unobtainable anyway!
