The collection

This record is part of a lifelong collection that began over 50 years ago. The records came from many sources and have been stored on shelves in a safe, smoke free environment for decades. The collection began with a gift from my grandfather “Sugar Sugar by the Archies” when I was 10 years old. That led to a lifelong hobby of collecting music that grew to 2,000 albums including a “third state” butcher cover of the Beatles, Yesterday and Today album with a pristine peel.

The primary collections are The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen and a dozen other artists. These individual collections comprise half of the collection. The remaining collection of individual artists include pop, rock, metal, folk and other styles of music that range from the early 60’s to the late 80’s. The collection also includes 45’s and memorabilia.

Album Condition

I do not “play grade” the albums. The condition is determined by a visual inspection. Any flaws and wear will be noted through the summary and attached images. As with old albums some wear may be visible in bright light, but doesn’t affect play unless noted. Front and back cover photos of the actual album will be provided as well as relevant detail photos so you can make your own assessment as to what you are bidding on. What you see is what you’ll get.

If there is an unexpected issue that requires my attention, please contact me. All record sales are guaranteed. 

Packaging and Mailing

The album will be removed from its original sleeve and placed in a plain paper sleeve to avoid seam splits in transit. The cover will be placed in a plastic sleeve to protect the exterior of the album. The exception to this is if the record is sealed.

The Record will be shipped in strong cardboard mailers with cardboard flats added to increase stability. The packing and mailing supplies may represent a small portion of the shipping charges.

Records will be shipped USPS Media Mail without insurance. USPS Priority Mail and insurance are available upon request if the buyer wishes to purchase them.

Winning bidder will pay shipping charges. 


Payment can be made on eBay via PayPal or major credit card. Payment is expected within three days of auction ending.
