Deadbase X is complete.

Not that I'd ever sell my hardcover of it, but I've seen it listed on Amazon for ridiculous amounts of money.
Be sure to be sitting down if you click the link below. ... 1877657204

here's an XI for a bit less. ... 1877657220

I have a paperback IX and while the main list only goes through 94, there is a separate supplemental list (which doesn't figure into stats or anything) that has '95 through the final show (pages 434-435)

I had DB VIII or IX and I sold it to buy X, thinking X had everything, but it didn't have the complete Jerry Band listing that I had in the one I sold, which bummed me out at the time (although I did buy X brand new when it came out for whatever it was going for at the time, like $35?) Wish I hadn't have sold the older one, though.

Big money for a reference that's supposedly riddled with errors(according to Bear). I have IX paperback, and have spent 100's of hours poring over it cover to cover. I think the post-hiatus stats are generally accepted as rock-solid due to the increase in the number of tapers, but some early listings are questionable.

Can someone clue me in on why this costs so much? (not a snarky comment , I'm truly curious).

only thing I can speculate is that it's an out of print book with not a ton of copies in and demand.
