Stop Breakin' Down

As mentioned, this blog is about music as well.  For those about to rock, I present the "Stop Breakin' Down", a Thirdman Records Vault track from the White Stripes last show ever.  This was issued on vinyl only, and only as many copies were printed as there were members of the Thirdman Vault subscription service.

The interesting investment component is that based on law of supply and demand, these records are in limited supply.  That's a fact.  Thirdman guarantees to never print these again (which would be the same as diluting stock holders thru an equity raise).  The market (eBay) has rewarded the quality and scarcity of this record by putting an average auction sale price north of $200 for this "Live in Mississippi" album.
