What is the demand for original broadway cast albums on Ebay? I'd like to sell most of my collection (since I have most of them on CD). Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks.

Check the listings around eBay as it is for and idea, but normally the newer or rarer the album, the more it will go for.

All depends if it is on CD or not.
If it is on CD, it's usually pretty much worthless on Ebay, sorry to say.

Try selling used off of Amazon.com. You can pull in more that way, even if there isn't an auction. Wonderful way to get rid of one's ex-boyfriend's leftovers (made $25 on one CD because it was rare and still new)....

Actually, I've seen some CD auctions go pretty high on eBay, but they have to be rare. Before House of Flowers was reissued, I was bidding on a copy but stopped when it got passed 75 dollars, and I won't even tell you what I payed for No Strings. Sophisticated Ladies was for sale used on Amazon.com recently for $150.00! I bought it on eBay recently for just over $30.00. Here are some of the rarest, therefore potentially the most valuable, recordings, according to CastAlbums.org:

Peter Pan [Bernstein version]
Anne of Green Gables OLC (=Original London Cast)
Cabaret OLC
Company OLC
Legs Diamond
Sophisticated Ladies
The Tap Dance Kid
Trouble in Tahiti
Whoop-Up
