11 Most Expensive Vinyl Records On The Market

11 Most Expensive Vinyl Records On The Market

Record Story Day is Saturday, April 22. On the scene for 11 years now, the annual event is aimed at promoting local, organically-owned record stores.

Record stores across the U.S. will be releasing exclusive vinyl - some represses, some new albums. The new records issued on Record Store Day will run from as low as $10 or $15, all the way up into the hundreds for the really limited pressings.

Record Store Day can get expensive really quick, especially when you see all those new Third Man releases. So here's a pro tip from an experienced crate digger: set a limit on your spending. Only walk into the store with a certain amount of cash.

...But In the event of total loss of will power and ultimate spending of more than allotted, justify the purchases with this consideration: vinyl is arguably at one of its most collectible times right now. That rare, only-500-printed release might just be your next new investment.

Some may scoff at an investment idea like that, but consider the collectors who own some of the planet's most expensive vinyls.
