Speaking of price guides, there is a website that lists lps and 45s and the most recent price they fetĒhed on eBay. I think LPMAN may have posted the link before. I can't find this link on the site, although I may not be looking hard enough! Does anyone know about the link to which I am referring and could some kind soul please post? Cheers.


Sounds like Popsike:

Too bad the guides would not list how many copies were made of certain records so you would have an idea of rarity.
Some coin collecting books have done this.
Just thought I`d throw it out as a suggestion.


Thatīs an interesting thought! I donīt ever buy to resell so the main things I would like a guide to do is;

Give discographical help
Help identifying different pressings
And give an approximate estimation of rarity (not value)

Even if itīs maybe impossible to ever establish exactly how many copies that were pressed of a certain record it would somehow be possible to grade in terms of rarity, wouldnīt it? Some kind of scale would do just fine!

are the price guides relevant to insuring your records?

in short, in my opinion.... no.

they are too incorrect, overall.

perhaps that is not a popular view, but it is reality, imhno.

Actually, I would say the price guides are fairly relevant to insuring, although I'm not sure if he'll see this since this was one of his 2 posts from 2/18.

They aren't a bad estimate of what it would cost you to try to quickly replace them (i.e. instead of spending a significant portion of your life scouring the earth for deals like most of us).

Not that I'd want to lose the records that I already have but, if I can't scour, I wouldn't want to do it again. The hunt is a big part of the fun, for me.

I still like to get out there and scour, search and hunt but to do it from scratch would just be impossible and too much to handle.

i disagree.

far too many commons have FAR too high a price.

not realistic for insurance purposes.

i sold a 45 that is listed as $25 for HUNDREDS.

insure that record for 25$?????

not.

i maintain the books are wrong. they are misleading.

they named one of them "goldmine" fer christs sake.
