    Now 4 CD - Keep it or Sell it?

    I managed to pick up this CD for £1 at a bootsale this weekend.

    I am debating with the "boss" as to whether it gets kept or sold.

    What do you think I should do?

    I think you can get some serious money for it - a Now CD collector would be interested.

    None on Amazon or Fleabay - so I am not sure.

    Funny cover, might be an antique! :thinking:

    Try entering the barcode on musicmagpie.co.uk/ and see what comes up?

    The disc is in absolute mint condition. The sleeve is in nice condition and the cover looks like it's 25 years old!

    Great link. Thank you. Interesting, as I picked up Now 8 and Now 10 also.

    Wow £500! Thats a little gem you found there. :w00t:

    OP.... You cannot sell this.... The value on these is going to rise even more in years to come....

    Start collecting the rest to match now

    I collect all things 80's, I have hundreds of Picture disks, Singles and Albums and I would not part with any...

    Defo hold on to this....

    Interesting read below:

    NOW! 4 Mega-rare and worth an incredible £200-£300 in it's original case … NOW! 4 Mega-rare and worth an incredible £200-£300 in it's original case (if you can find one) although one was recently bought for an unbelievable £425...! This 16 track single CD was brought out along side it's double 32 track vinyl counterpart. Cat.CDP 26 04082 - (Tip - Look for 'Patent Pending' on the back of the jewel case)NOW! 8 is worth anything up-to £120. This was the next in the CD release sequence as 5,6,& 7 were never available on CD (although rumor has it a NOW! 5 on CD was at a record fair with a price tag of £795...!)NOW! 9 Just as valuable and rare as Now 8, but now we're cooking on gas now as the CD revolution had begun and vinyl sales began to drop. Only 16 tracks on this single CD.NOW! 10 Although still very rare and valuable there are a few of around unlike the previous three. £40-£60 should get you a nice copy. This was the first in the series to 'double up' with 2 discs in the old style 'thick' double jewel case.

    :?

    I am torn! Do I collect the rest?! or do I do the right thing and sell to a true Now CD collector?

    The money would be handy - although I still find it difficult to be someone would pay sooo much money for a CD!
    :w00t:

    I would sell, thats just me, I am too impatient!

    The problem with collecting anything (including shares IMO) is you rarely sell them and therefore never see the profits.

    If there value is rising you hold out for a little bit more and then when they drop you missed out. If they are dropping in value you hold on to them to rise again and then end up in the first scenario.

    You have to be very disciplined and sell at a target price regardless of what the trend is doing.

    I too would sell now and enjoy the profit.

    It has the Reflex on it. Therefor you cannot sell it. :P

    Ahhh....Thompson Twins, my first concert (was the Dublin concert just before they broke up and cancelled the tour) and got to meet the band afterwards too. them were the days..

    Now 4 - With a cover to make swine flu look cool!

    this must have to go down as one of the car boot bargains of the decade
