    Holy moly! Nice!

    I have a much more modest collection, about 400 items, 90% of them CDs. Today mine shows as: Min: $3,463.79 Med: $5,461.97 Max: $8,803.38

    Honestly, I don't care at all about my collection's value (although I guess if it were worth $100k I probably would care a lot more!). To me, a lot of my collection is worth almost nothing because it's easily replaced in the event of a catastrophic loss; while a significant fraction of my collection is priceless to me, because it would be impossible or nearly impossible to replace if I lost it.

    It's not trust, it's math. It's average sales over a definite time period. It's a statistic.

    To clarify, I meant that I don't trust that as true market value. I realize how they arrive at those numbers, but those are just sales figures based on Discogs results and don't take other important variables (other markets, location, condition, going rate, etc.) into account.
