Do you think CDs will ever be valuable to collectors? I think of how the old fashioned record players began to fade away and now are coming back in demand; people are digging out their old LPs. I often wonder if the same will happen with CDs too.
Well, I remember my parents and their 8-tracks. Then records and cassette tapes made their rounds. Then CDs popped up, followed by digital recordings. I have a huge CD collection. I ended up building my collection via the Columbia House music company. Do you remember Columbia House? You could get something like 30 CDs for a penny, and they’d send you music periodically after that and you could either keep and pay fair market value for their choice or send it back. I always cancelled then signed up again. I have nearly 300 CDs. That’s just a rough estimate. It might even be more than that. I keep them because I keep thinking they might be worth something one day…maybe a gold mine.
Maybe they’ll never be worth anything at all. Who knows? As long as they are not encumbering and don’t take up too much space, I’ll hold on to them.
