Its not just OOP and CE. Was looking thru one of the sites yesterday and some guy was asking retail for stuff I can go to the store or order online for myself and not have to worry about getting ripped off. The bad part is people were buying.

All the auction pages are like that. It's not every disc but some go for stupid money, and there's not even anything super special about them. There's no exposing fraudulent claims about discs either. The seller can alert a mod, and you get banned. It's seriously like they're encouraging the scams.

The number of disc golfers has been increasing steadily 10-15 percent every year. With only so many OOP Discs their demand is growing and prices rising. I think we will continue to see prices go up on the LE and OOP discs in demand.

So to answer your question, yes the market is dead if you want reasonable pricing. Im hoping Innova runs everything in Jolly and flatter from now on. Hopefully tune their Star to make it Gummier as well. With Prodigy and Lat/West/DD all making superior plastic, Innova is getting left behind.

Thought the same thing. I'm allegedly part of the Social Media generation but I despise Facebook. Unfortunately I do have an account so I can keep up with some stuff.

This is the biggest "group" on facebook where you can buy & sell discs. Just ask to join & they will automatically accept you (don't even know why they have that obstacle). I joined & I agree that people buy discs for way more than they are worth. If you want to make $ I'd suggest selling discs on there.
