How do you decide?

Recommended Posts

I have spent a rare afternoon with my vinyl it does not happen often of late I have retired from the DJ thing...I am astounded at the multiple copies of records I have 2-3 or more copies of the same record on various formats...demo issue silly bugger mentioned on the lable etc...exactly how do you decide which ones to keep as I am having a kind of a purge...

Treat yourself to Johnny Manships rare record guide.

Usually states whether DJ or issue is rarest..

Then make decision if you want rarity or the most dosh for selling the surplus vinyl etc.

Check on eBay top sellers to see if anything you have is hitting a peak, and the sell high.

As above, rarest format, best condition.  This is OK unless there is some sentiment attached to one of your more common, lesser condition copies............in which case you may have to go for the option suggested by TattooDave. 🙄

Here is the thing the majority are rare...I have a recent manship guide...some are so pretty ( I like that) don't know if that's just a  me thing. I am really aware that I am out of touch with prices having not been "out out" on the scene for a long while...I tag things on ebay and have a JCB ready to pick my jaw up off the floor when I see the end price of items I thought were relatively easy to find...I have also sold items on here through wants and flog me now I have asked the question "what is it worth  may be persuaded" and parted with records for what I call silly money...am I holding on to a pile of shite or are my vast array of Ed hamilton on all format singles worth sixpence?

Put a list up on here and ask for offers.

Supply and demand etc..

Or pay somebody a commission for selling on your behalf.

Or Cookie.  Just give them to me and save any hassle.  Hope you're well  :wave:

Dave - first a foremost for me it's a hobby not a business - secondary go through the does that mean anything to me - I brought a copy of the sweetest feeling at the casino it's cheap as chips yet I have memories although blurry of that evening - all my other copies I would sell - I've always found SS an excellent feed back from the guys giving opinions and approx what's it worth - what ever you do take you're time do a bit of research and bounce off the SS guys - failing that just ring JM up and ask him for advice / price - be lucky

hi cookie, 

i been in your situation for a while...and have virtually stopped selling stuff as i had some frustrating protracted deals that went nowhere ..cant be arsed at the mo... i have no idea of current prices  ,and it hurts to say goodbye to the best most cherished  part of your collection wether valuable or not  ,i try and sell to people who i know  may want my records [ a small eccentric circle ,i admit] however not going   out or being in the loop is a huge disadvantage, it seems  condition is far more important to buyers these days..............it all seemed so simple before i stopped buying as selling funded buys , however once you find a new purpose for selling things you are not gonna replace with like 45s then its feels easier............but not much...........😪  good luck making the choices...........ez
