A record collectors dream!
Whether you are a collector who loves vintage music from a simpler, by-gone era or a retailer looking for a great value, this collection is what you are looking for.
We did a little research and found what they were listed for on eBay (the red list price shown in the chart) and figured we would put them up online (I do web development for a living) to see if any record collectors would be interested.

* In shrink wrap-opened
The (approximately) 120+ count record collection contains mostly vintage country and western (Johnny Cash, Ferlin Husky, Sons of the Pioneers) as well as some gospel albums. There are no 45's. There are some really esoteric records here (Hugo Winterhalter, Dave Dudley, The Buddies, etc.) that reflected my father-in-laws likes and life. He was a long haul trucker in the 50's - 70's. There are also some fairly rare collectors items such as Chet Atkins Humm Along and Strum Along (with the song book still intact), Andre Kostelanetz & Orchestra, original Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Kate Smith and on and on. See the list for individual listings. The listings with asterisks indicate items still in the shrink wrap. Some of these items even have the original price stickers on them. There are even a few more slightly more contemporary records such the original Meatloaf LP with the lyrics in the sleeve and Grease that belonged to his daughter.
For the most part, the records are in immaculate condition. This is not some professional record rating system terminology. This is a son-in-law sliding an LP out of the jacket and looking at glossy, mostly scratch-free vinyl. We have not tested or played these records as I have not had a turn table for 35 years. We have also not inspected each and every LP. I would like to say that we have tested and guarantee each record to be perfect, but that is not the case. It is what it is... a case of antique LPs in unbeleivably great condition.
The vinyl is in great condition, but the album covers (as you can see from the large photos) have a little age to them. Some are lightly scuffed, but then some of them are 60 years old and have been kept in a dry cool basement all that time. We don't have the back of every single album cover photographed mostly because this project was a little larger than anticipated.
We did some research on these records and found that (if you can find some of these rare collectibles) you can buy all these individually for a total of several thousand dollars. We have shown a few of the prices that we found these LPs listed for online so you can see what they are selling for if you were to try and buy them individually.

Who We Are...
Payments (even by PayPal) will require a clearing period of no less than 5 business days before the item can be shipped. It is encouraged that your bank information and address are "confirmed" on the Paypal as well.
Payment is accepted in U.S. currency only. If you pay via Paypal, your order will ship once Paypal clears your payment.
Shipping & Handling:
If you would like to pick up the collection and save the shipping and handling altogether, I would be more than happy to send you directions once the payment has been cleared. I am located in Charlotte NC.
Shipping and handling fees quoted do include a portion for packaging and handling cost. Shipping costs may vary.
Insurance is optional, but I would recommend it, given the cost of the collection and the fragility of vinyl records.
I am estimating that because of the nature of LP's that the shipping and handling would be about $10-$12 each.
