sell record collection

Wondering where to sell your vinyl collection or estate? Is is easy to sell from the privacy of your home without the delay of consignment or hassle of eBay - and for a fair price. If you are looking to sell your entire rare record collection in one simple transaction, you have found the right place. We are a trusted buyer with over 30 years experience buying from the public. We are one of the top buyers in America. No collection is too large or small. We buy rare and not-so-rare records as well as collectible CDs and 8 track tapes. Click the CONTACT US button below to get started.

What do we buy?

Basically, any Pre-1990 rare vinyl on 45 rpm or 33-1/3 LP, and certain selected 78 RPM records such as early Delta Blues on the black Paramount label. These type of records we are always looking to buy. Also early 1950 to 1953 Rhythm & Blues vocal groups on 45 rpm are rare and we are buying. Early Jazz LPs are always wanted.

Are old records valuable?

Yes, some (but not all) are. Some of the more valuable records are Northern Soul from the 1960s and 70s, early blues, early Rockabilly including Elvis Presley on the Sun label, and rare issues by top bands like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, KISS and many others.

Which records are NOT wanted at this time?

We are currently not interested in collections of 78 RPM records, unless you have very rare ones like black label Paramounts or Sun label 78s.

Otherwise, you should know that 99% of 45 RPM records and 33-1/3 LP Albums are very common. Starting in the early 1960s, records were produced and sold by the billions and are VERY common. Most are of little if any value.

A word about WHITE POP Records

Sadly, we do not buy records by Dinah Shore, Bing Crosby, Hank Snow, Doris Day and a million other 'million seller' celebrity recording artists. Why not? Because records by those artists sold in the millions and are very common. They have little if any value. Remember, before you take the time to contact us with your list of Bing Crosby records...WE DO NOT BUY WHITE POP!

Which records are worth money?

While most records have little value, some can be worth a fortune. But, like a winning lottery ticket, they are very, very rare. Here is a partial list of worthwhile vinyl:

Remember, we make a market in all rare records. This is only a partial list of some of our most wanted to help you learn which are worth money.
