I'm sure there are lots of exceptions to my general statement; for extremely in-demand items, or unique/rare items... But that's usually a case where the asking price on the market has nothing to do with the original sale price anyway.

I'm really aiming more at the guys who try and sell mass-produced drum items for 80% of the new value, knowing full well they've been hitting it with sticks for years, and the buyer will lose all the benefits of the original purchase with the retailer.

Like others have said, though, lots of folks have more money than sense, and will impulse buy stupidly priced items. It's still kind of a free country, I think.
