Value: £1,519.64

Perhaps one of their more neglected releases, this album by Black Sabbath is no less hard-hitting, hence its ability to still fetch high prices when put up for sale.

FAQs Black Sabbath Vinyl

How much is Black Sabbath worth?

Ozzy Osbourne is the richest member of Black Sabbath when you combine his and Sharon’s net worth of $220 million. Close behind is Tony Iommi with an estimated net worth of $140 million. Since they have since disbanded, it feels disingenuous to calculate their shared worth as a unit because this is something that they are no longer.
