TOP 30 MOST EXPENSIVE ITEMS SOLD IN DISCOGS MARKETPLACE FOR DECEMBER 2018

TOP 30 MOST EXPENSIVE ITEMS SOLD IN DISCOGS MARKETPLACE FOR DECEMBER 2018

Some things are fated to happen. Don’t expect us to get too much into detail or provide you with your astrological sign compatibility. No, we aren’t talking about any of that. We are talking about how after what was considered by the almighty Diognes_The_Fox as the most potato Top 50 ever… Our Top 30 most expensive items sold in December 2018 is the most insanely predictable ever!

Yes, dear readers, our Top 30 for December 2018 feels more like January 1, which means a lot of reheated leftovers and a hangover from more interesting times. Good news for all of you is that you can score some of these incredibly expensive releases for pretty reasonable prices, so it might be a good day to up your vinyl record investment game.

But in all fairness, there are always nice surprises in each Top 30. In the third position of our ranking, you’ll find a wonderfully weird artifact of German Punk, including a metal cover. Another interesting entry on the chart can be found at number 5, where Cildo Meireles first LP sold for $2,631, which marks his first-ever appearance in our Top 30.

While originality might not be the strongest talking point of this list of the most expensive items sold in December 2018, we keep seeing a rise in the prices collectors are paying for rare vinyl releases. In December 2018, 26 out of the 30 releases of this list were sold for $1,500 and above. Crazy, innit?

We don’t want to spoil the fun of discovery so scroll down to see what made the list!
