The developement these last 2-3 years is brutal. Supposedly driven at most by only a handful of rich men.Discogs' history stats are pretty much responsible for this. Everyone tries to sell according to them -and i dont blame them- . That way prices increase, only. Ofcource Discogs knows that, that's why history is still there. But for a usual ordinary guy buyer is difficult to follow this increasing indeed. Seems the only sustainable way to buy old-rare-expensive releases is becoming to sell your now similar stuff on market prices and fund your new wants. Or trade ...Example : https://www.discogs.com/Alfarmania-Proiekt-Hat-Furyfication/release/1132338 . From 20. I dont doubt someone sooner or later will buy it at 80 if there are not new lower price listings for sometime. And then history will write, 80, and we continue around that.

Quote from: Eigen Bast on December 16, 2020, 05:15:04 PMCOVID surely has a hand in high prices - for people lucky enough to have not lost their jobs, they're stuck at home with nothing to do...accumulating $$$ and listening to records for a year straight, isolating, researching, learning about obscuro artists and then sliding over to discogs to see what's available. I know I have spent more this year than most on new and old releases, and sold a ton too!
