    Hey all! There’s a thread discussing this list on Reddit’s r/vinyl sub-reddit, if any redditors would care to chime in!
    http://www.reddit.com/r/vinyl/comments/13507s/the_most_expensive_items_sold_thru_discogs_in/

    I mention this because there are a lot of newer/younger vinyl collectors on Reddit who seem wary/intimidated of Discogs for some reason or another. Let’s bring them into the family!

    This list is always fun, but what about more information for sellers? Maybe the top 500 prices drawn each month. And a list of what sells quickest after being listed, to give us a better sense of what’s moving. Thanks!

    Massive Attack – Blue Lines was an error. I’ve updated the list, adding Drexciya – Uncharted at #30.

    Lol, good sale for Massive Attack – Blue Lines
    (Sold for $881.00)

    Yeah, why $880 for Massive Attack Blue Lines CD? Seeing as there is one listed for £2 it seems like someone made a bit of mistake…
