Crazy prices for rare CDs!

Well 6 months ago I sold the Bronz CD for 7 pounds - no lie! Frankly, I only liked the title track. The guy I sold it too probably got 10 times that when he sold it (after buying a CD recorder) - he was just that type of person. I wasn't bitter. I've never been out to make a killing. A year ago I sold L.Axe/Love And War for £4, when I knew full well that my buyer had someone in line who would pay £25 (it's hard to keep a secret in aor circles!) - again, I wasn't bitter. I sold Burtnick's T.I.C. for £30 which is (by a huge amount) the most I've ever sold anything for - even that made me feel guilty and out-of-character (even though nothing compared to what some charge!) but it was an usually desperate financial position I was in. The rare Brian Greenway CD I actually gave away (to a good friend who deserved it), and I'm not bitter about that either. What does upset me is that I've been called a "fool" over the years for letting rarities go at affordable prices. That hurts. I know I could have got more, but so what? Even the L.Axe buyer told me "it was a fair price" - it was a lot more than "fair", and he knows it! I don't deserve to be called stupid just because I'm not greedy, do I? I have so many other sought-after items, eg : Kick Axe - Rock The World, which is now rare (but not that good, let's be honest! - ditto the 7" Weekend Ride single by them they did after - anyone want it?!) but the way I see it - the CDr market has satisfied a lot of people, who now no longer want the real thing, and anyway - most CDs end up getting re-released sooner or later - usually with those infernal bonus trax! Big prices are just not as necessary these days.
