Top 30 Most Expensive Items Sold In Discogs Marketplace For April 2018

Last month, The Beatles reached the #1 position of the top selling items chart again. While the fans’ devotion to them is undeniable, the Top 30 most expensive items sold on Discogs in April 2018 looks a bit different. You might have never heard of the #1 before, and that’s totally fine since this is only the second time the record has been sold at Discogs. And we’re pretty sure that you know the band that made it to our #2, but believe it or not, this is the very first time a copy of the single has been sold on the Discogs Marketplace.

Not everything is new around here, obviously, it seems like every single time a copy of that limited numbered edition of the Pet Shop Boys’ masterpiece “Yes” becomes available, it instantly finds a Buyer. Congratulations to whoever landed this copy.

We don’t want to spoil the fun, so we think it’s better for you to scroll down and check out this balanced chart combining popular and obscure artists. We hope you enjoy it!

    A JUDGE record for almost $6k?
    I wish I would have held on to that stuff instead of trading for skateboards. Wow!!

    Well, think about it: middle-aged Gen Xers with nothing else to spend that career cash on (besides the kids and the mortgage, the health insurance). Being that it’s a JUDGE record at #1, it’s a fair assumption the disposable flow ain’t goin’ to weed and craft brews!

    Punk and Hardcore seems to dominate the top tens.
