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

by loquearde

Record collecting is a weird science. Our monthly Top 30 is strong evidence of that.

Let’s jump directly into the details. Some months we see that the most expensive item is by a non-famous artist or band, and some others you will see one of the best selling bands of all time crowning the list. While punk and hardcore were genres with an emphasis on cheap and DIY production, we’ve been seeing them fill the most-expensive items sold lists for quite a few months now. Which, you know, is good news for the kids hanging out back in the day at Agnostic Front and The Saints gigs. On that note, always try to buy records directly from artists at concerts. Aside from directly supporting the artists, they often offer rare releases that will appreciate.

Focusing on artists that we have been seeing around lately and which are always a safe bet, you’ll get your monthly dose of The Beatles, Joy Division, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, and Black Sabbath…seems like they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Psychedelic rock, Funk / Soul 7”s, and a couple of records in the Top 3 this month that we would definitely want to hear more about. Find out about these rare records and much more on this list. Oh! And scroll down to the bottom of this article to find out about the most expensive item sold on Discogs in February 2018.

Disclaimer: At number 17 you’ll find a cover with a picture of Hitler. While we understand this might seem inappropriate, this is the original artwork from the band and we have decided to show it as it appears in the Database. Just to make it completely clear, this band didn’t support in any way this ideology.

    Why was Joy Division sold for that amount of money ? There are some other in NM conditions for much less, can anyone explain ?
  • narcisco 14 days ago
    As per comment in the sales history:
    Signed by Ian Curtis, Bernard Albrecht (Sumner) and Stephen Morris
  • Spiltdown_Man 1 day ago
    The Joy Division Unknown Pleasures LP sold here wasn't even the earliest pressing, but it was signed by Ian Curtis, Peter Hook and Bernard Albrecht (aka Sumner). I guess someone figured the autographs added about $1450 to the value of the disc.
