Bruce Springsteen

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

Some weeks ago, we shared with the community some thoughts on how rare releases were on the rise on Discogs. It all makes sense, the format won’t stop growing any time soon, and it’s becoming more specialized than ever. Back in June, we saw the record for the most expensive item sold on Discogs smashed by a Canadian copy of Prince’s “Black Album”. It’s not every month we get to see stuff like that happening, but the trend is there.

Either way, just coming back to what’s important here, let’s talk a bit about what went down in October 2018. As you might have guessed by the huge cover image, Bruce Springsteen crowns October’s chart. We’re not gonna lie, it’s not that we see him that often around the chart, so it comes as a surprise to see him on top. And apparently, a copy can land in your Collection for as little as $500, in case you’re interested.

The rest of the Top 10 is made of more obscure artists and, well, Genesis.

I don’t want to distract you from what’s important, so dive into our chart and see you next month!

    I sold a Minor Threat record in October in the $1400+ range and it didn’t show. Is this something Discogs locates or are we expected to submit this data?

    I’m sorry, but you’re a faggot.

    The copy of the Springsteen record for sale for $500 is a regular copy with a gold promo stamp, worth about $15-20. It shouldn’t even be listed under this very rare “script cover” test pressing edition.
