  • Whats your most valuable LP?

    I have a mint factory sealed copy of the MOFI UHQR box of pink floyds DSOTM in my collection. Its worth about $1500-$2000. Far and away the most valuable thing I own. Paid $50 for it in 1982. You guys must have some rare stuff too...

    PS. have an open copy too to listen to

        I don't either! I do have quite a few that are fairly valuable, but since I ain't selling them it's a moot point.

      Wow! Antique Roadshow Audiophile Edition! Had to spend some time thinking about that one given how prices go up and down over the years.

      I don't have anything that is in the $1000 territory like an original Bluenote or Decca. Darn.

      I guess it might come down to a couple of albums.

      Either the original RCA Royal Ballet Set or the 45 rpm Classic Records reissue

        My two David Gilmour's (Gdansk & On An Island) are fairly pricey. About $1,000 combined, but that's it. I did see someone selling Classic of LZ- Houses of the Holy for $500 sealed.

          I was recently suckered by a Claaic sealed 45 RPM version of I Robot. I'm done with Claasic LPs..

            How are you sure that they put the proper LP in the box? Packing mistakes can happen ...

            I once saw a guy selling a sealed pair of Quad tube amplifiers at eBay. He was supplying certified radiographies of the boxes.

            I have a few spare sealed Shefield Labs direct cut LPs, but nothing comparable to your famous great possession.
            My opinions rely on listening mainly to acoustical, non amplified music. I do not care about electronic music or listening to rock at stadium levels, but I enjoy Mahler and Shostakovitch.

              Well if it means anything, I would have bid on the album too. Sometimes I'm a bottom feeder and was waiting for copy to fall through the cracks.

                  Myles, have you seen the latest prices for the original Royal Ballet? We talking 2-3K for a 1s/1s, easily, depending on condition!

                    Don't like them, Mark? I like their RCA series, in particular the 45rpms, but they can be a bit bright.

                        No longer in my collection...

                        I sold my copy of Mark Fry "Dreaming With Alice" for approx $4200. Sold Museo Rosenbach "Zarathustra" for $2200. Countless other rare Italian and German prog albums in the $800-$2000 range.

                        Still plenty of rarities in my collection but the market softened when the Russian collectors disappeared.

                          Mark actually got it for a relative "steal" compared to what it had been going for on eBay. Other copies had sold in the $3-400 range and Mark got it for $175. I'd kill for a good 45 rpm release of I Robot and that's why I'm hoping the MOFI reissue fits the bill!

                            I have a 1s/1s of LSC 2449, the Faust/Carmen LP. One of my favorite classical LPs. I paid dearly for this, but one of my holy grails (I have the CR Reissues in 33 and 45, and now the AP reissue).

                            I also have a Pines of Rome 1s/1s. Maybe overrated but an interesting story behind it.
