When I bought my home a couple years ago I recieved a collection of vinal records along with the record player. My mom says to hold on to the records as they maybe worth some money someday but why? I dont have use for them..Is it worth my time to list them on ebay?
...maybe - it depends on what you have. I have a collection of various genres and some I paid up to $50 Cdn for an album in second hand vinyl shops and others very little through garage sales - I'd buy the whole box for a few dollars to get 1 album I was after - ha ha I've also purchased new vinyl - digital - it is being produced.
...there are collectors around and folks like me who spin tunes - analog and digital.
Like anything else, some are worth a small fortune and others make nice Frisbees. Elvis on Sun 78s are worth hundreds of dollars--depending on condition. I recently saw a fairly common old Jazz 78 rpm sell for $500.00. In the days when VINYL was king, Goldmine Magazine was the top place to get prices and to buy or sell VINYL. Nowadays, Ebay might be the best source.
The short answer is what you have is probably worth five or ten bucks for the whole lot - unless you have a mint Billy Ward and the Dominoes LP (one sold a few years back for over $20,000.)
...indeed they never fully went away. What are your thoughts about this?It is said that vinyl records of the 1950s have never been beaten, sound-wise...and that digital formats such as CDs / MP3s, etc., sound...
