  • What's valuable? Who knew...

    I've been slowly cataloging my LP collection in Discogs (very slowly, only have 228 done so far). According to their valuation, the most valuable record I have so far is my original UK release of Gentle Giant's first album with a median price of $274.02 and a high price of $368.65.

        ... and if you died tomorrow your wife would throw it out, or bring it to a vinyl store and get $1 for it.

          I've got about 300 or roughly 10% of my collection entered. There are some interesting surprises there in terms of value, and I'm not talking about those OOP audiophile releases or very rare originals.

            I was shocked at the gold CD's, which bring the highest value, none of them are what I guessed they would be. I.E. a Derek & the Dominos and a Pink Floyd album top the list.

              No, actually, when I go, my son is taking the whole collection and all the gear. That's already official. My brother gets any of the records my son doesn't want.

                I wish I could say the same. I have absolutely no one who's even remotely interested in my gear and/or collection.

                  Been there, stuff is only as valuable as what someone is willing to pay vs what we think its worth.

                    I wouldn't have expected that.
                    And don't forget to look at the sales history by looking at the LAST SOLD ON link.

                      I'm hoping some of the albums I don't like turn out to be valuable! Otherwise I would never part with any any of my records.
