Today we’re kicking off a new series of monthly blog posts featuring a list of the Top 30 Most Expensive Items sold through the Discogs Marketplace. This months list is for items sold in March 2012. Items are only included in these lists if the seller received payment. Prices are converted to $USD based on exchange rates at the time of sale.
Since it has been a couple of years since we posted the Top 100 Most Expensive Records list, we thought it would be fun go back and create Top 30 lists for the past 2 years. One interesting thing we noticed was the genre for the number one spot has shifted from Electronic over time. In 2010, 47% of the releases in these lists were in the Electronic genre. In 2011, Funk/Soul and Rock each hit the number one spot 25% of the time, with Electronic dropping to 8%.
Do you see any interesting patterns in these lists? Let us know by posting in the comments.
