Huge Music Collection for sale on eBay

I'm sometimes astonished as to what people sell at eBay. I always thought those video game collections that filled rooms where impressive but this music collection must be one of the largest sales ever on eBay. A collector is apparently selling his entire music collection on eBay which consists of more than 3 million records and 300000 CDs currently stored in a 16,000 square foot climate controlled warehouse.

The initial price for the music collection is three million Dollars with no reserve price. That's a great bargain if you believe the estimates that the music collection is worth more than fifty million Dollars. The auction will run another two days and the buyer will even get $10 back from eBay if he applies, is not that nice..

A website was created to answer frequently asked questions like why it is for sale, what people can expect, what home they would need to store all those records and CDs. It's interesting that the collection would be shipped world wide, wonder how much one had to pay for the shipping costs alone.

I would be really tempted to buy the collection if I had the money to do so. It would probably take ages but I guess it would be possible to make a huge fortune by selling the records and CDs separately instead.

Update: The website where the collection was posted on is no longer available. I can't really say if the collection was sold on eBay or if it did not meet the reserve price. Still, every now and then other music collections are offered on eBay, and while they may not be as big as this one, it may still be a lot bigger than the collection of music you have at home.
