Hi Everyone:

I'm going back to college next year and I've got way to much stuff, regretably
that also means I have to get rid of my rather large collection of CED's that
I've tried to keep and preserve over the years.  I'll be selling them off in
chunks over the next few months, in the lists I'll post the title, its UPC
code, and what I'm asking for the disc.  My price is based on rarity according
to Tom's guide @ the CED Magic website, their condition and the number of

well as play quality, but I cannot guarantee that discs will play on your
player, so please inspect the disc prior to playing it in your player.  If the
disc is not to your expectations (except for playability) I will exchange the
disc for another in my collection.  If you'd like to see a disc, I'll send you
a picture of myself holding the disc you are inquiring about.

Thanks for your time, and I hope to hear from my fellow collectors out there, I
hope I can place them in good homes, and I appreciate you looking.

Subject: CED's at Portland Area Thrift Stores


For those of you in the vicinity of Portland, Oregon, in the past week I've
seen CED's in modest quantities at two Goodwill stores. This is the first time
I've seen CED's beyond a quantity of one or two in a while, and the first time
in several years I've simultaneously seen them at two different places.

These two Goodwill stores are on Pacific Ave. in Tigard, Oregon and Fourth
Plain Blvd. in Vancouver, Washington. You may remember a post from three years
ago when this Tigard store had some CED's in the glass display case for $39.99
each. It looks like they know more about them now, as these current batches are
in the audio LP bins at $4.99 each. Each store has about 40 discs and they
appear to be of private collection origin.
