Cripple’s Reward

Posted June 22nd, 2013 by Anthony

eBay has gone crazy for disability vinyl LP records. This album, although priceless, was posted with a starting bid of $95.00! Most disability-related posts on eBay don’t go for very much, but for some reason records do. “Little Roy, the Crippled Boy” used to go for $7 or $8, but then one auction hit $45 for a copy with a photo. Now, the market’s been flooded with copies, and they’re going for big bucks. I guess it’s the freak factor.
