Your Vinyl Country Records May Be Worth A Fortune
Vinyl is making a comeback! You might want to dig into your closet and see if you have any of these:
* "George Jones Country Song Hits" (album) In 1956 Starday records released this as their first ever LP. It's very valuable today. Beware of the re-issue on the Secret Stash label.
* "Jim Reeves Sings" (album) Good old hard core country from 1955. In mint condition this LP can bring $1000.
* "Blue Moon of Ky/That's All Right " 78 RPM by Elvis is listed right now on eBay for $1900.
* "Carolina" Eric Church vinyl LP just sold on eBay for $280
* "No Fences" Garth Brooks (still sealed) 1990. Sold $227
* "Patsy Cline - Sweet Dreams- The Complete Decca Years " Record Store 2019 colored vinyl. New and sealed. Sold $190
* "Elvis' Golden Records" 1958 compilation LP. A mint copy still in shrink wrap available on eBay for $2000.
^ "Johnny Cash and His Red White and Blue Guitar" Sun album 1957. Very rare and valuable in mint condition.
This is a sample. Please remember the CONDITION is VERY important. The big price comes on MINT condition vinyl that is still sealed in shrink-wrap. Condition and rarity are the two most important items in determining value of any collectible.
EXTRA: The most valuable country record I've ever seen was auctioned off at Graceland on Elvis' 80 birthday. It was a recording Elvis made as a birthday present for his mother. Elvis was 18 years old in 1953 when he paid Sun Records $4 to record him.The song, "My Happiness" on disk brought $300,000.00 It is the only original copy.There are very good reproductions available that even have the cracked and yellowed typed label.
