Today we live in the digital age, when the thought of a physical copy of our favorite record probably doesn’t even cross one’s mind. But just a few short decades ago we were all buying up vinyl records when we wanted to listen to some tunes. You might even still have a box (or two) in the garage gathering dust.
Vinyl records probably seem like a blast from the past to most people. The first vinyl record was invented in the early 1900s, but it wasn’t until 1930 that RCA Victor launched the first-ever, long-playing commercial record. Since then vinyls have waxed and waned in popularity, but one thing is for sure: you can make a lot of money from old vinyl.
As technology has advanced, vinyl records have become a collector’s paradise. Stumble across a rare copy of a certain album and you could be sitting on a gold mine. Do you have one of these rarities lurking in your attic? It might be time to check for these old classics!
