Jeez. It may be expensive, but its not his fault. If it's worth that much to him, then it's his choice. And that's how much it's been going for online recently. And there are people that are willing to pay that much, so it sucks for you.
And not only is this a must have for us GD fans, but when Emily's Army makes it big these will become even more valuable. Just imagine how much 1000 hours sold when Dookie came out, just because all of the sudden there were 4 million GD fans. When Emily's Army makes it big (hopefully with the album they're working on now), there will a lot more demand for these then there is now. So if you want it, get it. With 100 made, this one's in great condition.
