Hello & welcome to our eBay auction. My record collection is taking over my home, HELP!

I've been collecting records since 1986 when I first heard Licensed To Ill by the Beastie Boys and fell in love with music. Through the 1990s record collecting hit a low point in North America as the CD format was introduced to the public and digital took off. You could walk into almost any thrift store and have your pick of records for 25 cents a pop. I never stopped collecting vinyl as my preffered format for music listening and as a result of this I bought a LOT of records during the 1990s (and still do). I'd hear a particular album, or even sometimes just one song, by an artist and then go pick up their entire catalog at the local Value Village for a few bucks! Even after record collecting started to rise again in the 2000's I continued to collect allthough it meant having to pay 'real' money for records I wanted (fortunately I was making money selling new records on eBay by then). At least for the new release records I was buying for my collection I was now able to get them at wholesale, but trust me, most of my disposable income went to feed the habit. As a result over the years my personal collection of records has gotten massive. About 10 years ago I got to over 10,000 records and decided I needed to do something about it since they were taking up way too much space and I didn't really have the time to listen to most of them anyway. As a result the bulk of my collection was boxed up and has been sitting in storage untouched, until now!

I'm a full on anal retentive record collecting geek. As a result my records have always been handled well; stored in archival grade sleeves (which they will be shipped in) in an upright position at room tempature. They were always returned to thier sleeves as soon as they were listened to. I was careful to regularly change needles on my turntable. As well I had a pet free and smoke free home. You are not buying these records from some random dude who found them at a storage locker auction. You are getting them from a fellow record collector who has the same passion for collecting as you do!

For over 15 years I have been selling new records on eBay but have pretty much stayed clear of used records since grading them can be a pain in the rear! However I have decided to clear out the used records that have been pilling up for almost 30 years now.

Here is some of the feedback we've been receiving from our first round of auctions:

Record grading is not an exact science and one persons VG+ can be another persons NM and so forth. As a result I have tried to grade as conservatively as possible but please do keep in mind I am a bit rusty at record grading since normally I deal exclussively with new records. As a result of this I have made sure to include multiple high res pictures of the actual record for each auction so please do take the time to take a close look.


SLEEVE CONDITION: I have decided not to take the time to grade the sleeves since as they say 'a picture is worth a thousand words'. Please take a close look at the included pictures as they should reveal any defects.
