How do you know if a record is valuable?
One is worth $10; one is worth $10,000! A significant factor in determining a vinyl record’s value is the label on the record itself. A given album or single might have been released with several different labels on the disc itself, even among releases by the same record company.
How much do used records cost?
The average eBay selling price for vinyl records is around $15, though vinyl record values vary significantly: from 50 cents to $50 or more. You need to do some research to determine exactly how much your vinyl records are worth.
Where do you store records?
Vinyl records need to be stored in an upright position to ensure they stay in good condition. Records that have been stored at a slant for an extended period of time can warp because of the uneven pressure that has been placed on them. This is why records are often kept in crates that position them upright.

Should you keep records in plastic sleeves?
Best Record Storage Options Commercial vinyl records may be stored in their original sleeve, but they should also be placed in a static-free polyethylene liner to avoid print-through from the original sleeve. In addition to storing records in a plastic sleeve, you should store record covers in a plastic sleeve.
Should records be stored vertically or horizontally?
Records shouldn’t be stored horizontally, or flat. As you will see, archival record boxes are designed for the records to be stood and stored vertically. Storing vinyl records flat can place too much pressure on the records lower in the stack causing damage over time.
Can you still buy records?
There are plenty of options out there where you can still get vinyl and CDs delivered to you. Many of the great individual record stores are still open, and now would be a marvelous time to support them. Just like Discogs, you can snare releases directly from a record shop’s eBay storefront as well.
