Historical music auction

You may have read about this online already, but this week the acetate version of the Velvet Underground & Nico was sold on Ebay for $155,401.00. The crazy part of the story is that the seller bought it at at record sale for 75 cents in 2002. You can read the whole story at the Ebay site. The value of this acetate comes from the fact that it contains different versions or different mixes of tracks found on the original release. My hope is that the buyer is connected to a record company in some way, and this new version will hopefully get released in the near future.
