    A few weeks ago, I found a vinyl goldmine. This nondescript place has thousands of records...a lot of them are crap, but this place is full of gems.

    I took pictures of everything I bought (except for four albums that I'm immediately turning around for resale). This is the stuff that is going in my collection most likely or being sold on eBay.

    I'll start with the 45s and keep resizing my pictures while the thread goes on.

    First up, a 45 of "Roses Are Red" by Bobby Vinton Mint with the original sleeve...you may remember this song from "Goodfellas"...

    Much more to come. :toptip:

    hopefully the album sleeves came stuffed with $20 bills.

    "Baby Sittin' Boogie" Buzz Clifford (I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep or eBay this one)



    After today, I'm going to upgrade to an eBay seller's account so I can make more money off of these records than I would if I sold them in Lexington.

    I asked people to not ask me about it...especially outside of that thread. Please respect my wishes.

    I have a "safe" book in my bookcase that I fill with cash and credit/debit cards. I'm planning on hollowing out other (useless) books to store smaller external drives, etc. Anyone else do the same? Another tip is put small valuables in a closed ziploc bag, hiding it behind a cabinet (affixing it with packing tape or wrapped in string or fishing line you can draw up without having to move the piece of furniture).

    Meanwhile, nice find, Francisco! Good luck with the selling.

    You pick those up from a private seller or a used record store?
