$3 Million Music Collection Sells on eBay

News Flash: Music Collection Sells For $3 Million on eBay

Paul Mawhinney, original owner of a collection of about 3 million records and 300,000 CDs, wasn't one of the sellers participating in the strike that most of you said you supported. His minimum bid of $3 million was met by a buyer from Ireland who will become the owner of more than six million song titles for $3,002,150.

My first thought was, 'Is the guy going to pay through PayPal?' But then I read that the buyer already made a $300,000 deposit and a bank has confirmed that he's good for the rest. The collection was the most looked at item ever on eBay and it's one of the most expensive sales ever completed. You can see what $3,002,150 bought here.

Only know it because its the big talk of the town around here. I tried myself to find the auction on ebay and couldn't! I don't know how people get to know of these things.

Oh, my! Thanks for the update, SkinnyMarie. I think their solution to host a more private auction is a good one.

The original bidder actually was found out to be a fraudulent bid. the owner of the screen name had has his identity stolen and had a call from ebay asking him to confirm his bid. Imagine getting that phone call! http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08054/859659-388.stm
