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.

The Background...
I was helping my mother-in-law clean out her basement when I noticed a few old record albums. The first one was Johnny Cash from 1957 in pristine condition! I turned and asked her about it and she pointed to a stack in the corner and said she needed to get rid of all of them. The stack was waist high! Closer inspection showed that the LP's were in immaculate condition, some still in the shrink wrap from the 50's! Her late husband had cherished these records and had never let his (now grown) children touch the the vinyl.

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.

Several hundred digital photographs later we are listing them on Ebay.  back to top...   The List of Records

The Record Collection...

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...
"We" are NOT a record store, record collectors or even professional Ebay sellers. My company does web development, so I put together a rudimentary web page to market the records. This isn't about needing the money or unloading inventory. This is about what Ebay was originally intended... auctioning personal items to collectors. My goal in this is to simply make a little money with minimal hassle in selling them.   back to top...   The List of Records

Payment Instructions:
We gladly accept Paypal, Money Order, Cashiers Check, Personal or Business Check. We can also accept MasterCard, Visa and Amex with a surcharge if you don't want to do PayPal. Please make out all of your payments to:

Paul Metheney c/o Metheney Consulting Inc.
10622 Back Ridge Rd
Charlotte, NC 28277

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:
Shipping is not included in the sale  price and is additional. We can ship the LPS within 24-48 hours of the payment clearing. The shipments is issued a tracking number and packed effectively. If you would like to receive it, please drop me an email and I will be happy to provide it. Please make sure that your SPAM blockers are set to receive email from my company's domain (metheney.com).

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.

Contacting Me
SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY!!!! Unfortunately, this is not what I do for a living and can't spend a  great deal of time on this project. You can email me if you like, but there is not much more I can tell you about the collection. As I mentioned, I haven't personally played these records, but the vinyl looks brand new. The covers have a little wear on them. If I can easily answer your questions I will be more than happy to. You can email me at or call my office at .  All items are sold as pictured and described. If you have any questions that are not properly addressed in my listing, you are welcome to email me immediately. I will reply as quickly as possible, generally within 24 business hours.
