Record Collecting

Cassettes are a still thing for some people. What are they looking to collect?

The cassette, a once-useful and now completely irrelevant music format, refuses to die. It’s not that people are buying them to play, though; they’re collectibles and tchotchkes and merch.

Goldin, a marketplace for collectibles, report that these are some of the cassettes that are receiving the most bids.

I don’t get it, but if cassettes are your thing, fill yer boots.
