What is the value of my vinyl record?
This question is asked by thousands each day as they sort through there own collection of vinyl records. Is there a gem in the box? Could I have that $10,000 LP and not know it?
Not only do you need the right record to hit a jackpot but the condition of the record and jacket must be in excellent shape. Added factors can be original printed inner sleeve and any inserts or posters that originally came with it.
