The Top 30 Most Expensive Items Sold in the Discogs Marketplace for July 2020

Every month, we take a closer look at the most expensive records, cassettes, CDs that folks scooped up in the Discogs Marketplace. And every month, we usually see familiar names from the classic rock realm — Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and the like. We also tend to see a lot of 7-inch releases, whose price tags tend to be hefty due to their limited nature. Occasionally, there will be a nice old cassette.

That’s why the 50th anniversary, four-CD Bob Dylan collection caught our eye. It’s costly for the same reason that most of the items on our Top 30 lists are costly — according to our Database, only 100 copies exist and were made available through a handful of Eruopean stores — but it’s still noteworthy that the CD format qualified as one of the most expensive sales in July. That being said, the copy below sold for just $1,500, which is almost half the price of the copy that made it’s way to No. 2 on our roundup of the most expensive CDs sold on Discogs.

The priciest item that sold in July was Negative Approach 7-inch that went for a whopping $5,499, but that still doesn’t top June’s top seller: a Capoeria Twins 12-inch with album art by Banksy.
