I have acquired a group of RCA Victor "Red Seal" 45 classic disks that are all red vinyl. Most are Horowitz. 2 are Boston Pops and one is Heifetz.

Are they unusual/valuable or is it just that I hadn't run across them before?

Not sure on specific details about the music / label in regards to value', but in the early years of 45s the major US companies tended to use coloured vinyl regularly. I *think* a member on this board has a website with info where a company like RCA would distinguish between its various styles of music by utilising different coloured vinyl. For example, red was for classical, green for country, black for pop etc (colours are just guesses here, I can't remember which was which.) Sadly this didn't seem to catch on and didn't progress much past the mid 50s Sad

RCA Victor mfd. Red Seal 45rpm album set in red vinyl from '49 to early '50s. In that sense they are not unusual. Classical titles on 45s are generally not in high demand, though there may be exceptions for a few particular artists (like Nathan Milstein).

Horowitz and the Boston Pops are probably duds from the standpoint of market value.

The Heifetz might sell for something, but demand is much higher with Milstein.

Hey all,

I have just come across apx. 40 RCA Victor "Red Seal Records" on red vinyl....Is there any market for these records.?.?.?.? Attached is a scan of one of the records....They are all classical in nature and the vinyl is in NM condition on nearly all of the records.....I was just wondering if I could get some input as to the saleability of these records....

Thanks....Enjoy the music....

Pgh Guy

I don't think they're terribly collectible, although I'm no authority, being primarliy a nickel & dime yard sale scrounger. I've got a number of those red vinyl 45 box sets, they are pretty cool. I think the typical Classical music fan would consider them a PITA as the record must be flipped over every 3 minutes.

I've got quite a few minty ones too, and haven't found any to be worth much. I think there may have been one performance worth a few dollars, but I can't recall which.

Probably the Milsteins are the only ones that would be of interest to collectors.
