|The lost Beatles tapes!|
Back in the day, I accumulated a pretty good collection of 8-tracks. But as timed moved on, I left 8-tracks behind and transitioned to cassettes, followed by CDs. Nowadays, I have all my music loaded on my Apple iPod. So other then serving as a reminder of my epic teenage years, I had no use for my old 8-track tape collection. Although I have to admit, it wasn't an easy decision for me to sell them. Normally, I am pretty cold and calculating when it comes to selling stuff on eBay. In this case though, I had some emotional attachment to my collection. But I shook off the fond memories and made the hard decision to part with them! The decision was made a little easier knowing that as 8-tracks age, they become brittle and can easily break when they're played. Recognizing this, I knew it was better to make a few bucks by selling the tapes now, before they became completely worthless!

Between the two auctions, I made $66 big ones! There's still a few more 8-track tapes I have laying around the house. I plan to auction them off on eBay soon. I'll also be looking to score more 8-track collections at the garage sales this season. While 8-tracks may seem as outdated as a polyester leisure suit, they sure can bring in the money!
