We have discussed Recordmaster some in the past--go up top to Search and type in Recordmaster and you'll get some opinions.

welcome to the guild and the rest of the wwworld, guinevere

if you want to sell them online, you'd be wise to list them

artist / label / catalog #

daunting task? no need for song titles.

skip the classical, big band, frank sinatra, doris day, type stuff and
focus on R&B, Blues, Jazz and Rock to start, imho.

start with a top twenty.. or so.. if there are too many.

regardless, you'll need to present information.

also, you'll want to describe the condition.
if it is shiney like a new coin, that is a good thing--
let folks know!



very happy

IMHO, the buttom line is this. Values are NOT fixed and given for etirnity. The value of records changes with times. Itīs as simple as that. Ebay tends to be very volatile at times. 10 dollars one day and 100 dollars the next. Statements that those "unexplainable" (way above book value) record sales has to do with "unexperienced buyers" is silly.Those "unexpirienced buyers" are part of the market. Who would ever come up with the crazy idea of writing a book about stock market values?

There may be many things going on behind the scenes you are not aware of.

Guys like Tom Port and Anthony Salvatore can have big impact on the price of certain copies of the 'same' record, and may explain why undistinguished records suddenly take off.

You really don't know what bidders are asking the sellers unless they post the questions and answers.

Does an online pricing guide exist? It is becoming difficult for me to read the very small print in the pricing books that I own. Many thanks.

Have you tried reading glasses? I was holding the newspaper out at arms length five years ago and having trouble reading it. Then I discovered reading glasses.

To answer your question, there is nothing like a price guide online that's free (I believe there is/was at least one online guide offered by one of the same companies that publishes the books for a fee) unless someone has put something new out there very recently the I'm unaware of.

You can of course search eBay and Popsike. It's too bad someone with computer skills and too much time on their hands doesn't set up a database that tracks all eBay prices. It still wouldn't be the be-all end-all but would be handy reference. I've seen this done for other collectibles (although admittedly there were fewer items to track than there would be for every record ever).
