Final UPDATE: The high bid was $5,467, representing the highest ever price realized in eBay for a 7″ Warhol cover. This is only eclipsed by 2 Madrigal’s Magic Key to Spanish records in 2011 ($7,710 and $6,300), back in the days before one would show up every week or two.
2nd UPDATE: with the high bid now standing at $2,750, I believe this breaks the record for a 7″ Warhol cover. There are a few hours left, so I will update this one last time after the final 15 seconds of fame (15 minutes is too long in this modern eBay world).
UPDATE: The bidding for this EP is now up to $2450, matching this 45’s previous record price. With 5 more days to go, it looks likely that this auction will set a new record for a 7″ Warhol cover.
As I mentioned a few months ago, another Waltzes by Johann Strauss Jr. record is currently up for auction on eBay. This cover has come up for auction 3 times before including the one in my collection. Both Paul Maréchal and the Warhol Museum have a copy, so this is the 6th confirmed copy in existence.
It will be very interesting to see what kind of money will this bring. The recent auction of the Ultra Violet cover brought $5,266 last month, and that cover is less rare than this one. Could this break the record for the highest price realized for a 7″ Warhol cover? Here is the link to the auction.
