If you’re a big vinyl record collector, listen up!
It’s very easy to think that the value of your collection really turns on both the condition and the artists behind those pieces of vinyl. For the most part, I would agree with you because if you think along those lines, most of your vinyl record collections’ valuation is taken care of.
After all, a copy of a good conditioned Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album is going to be much higher than a pristine copy of the Beastie Boys License to Ill album. Hands down. The same goes for The Rolling Stones and other bands.
Now, with that said, you also have to look into preserving the value of your collection. This is where a lot of vinyl record collectors simply slip up. They think that as long as they buy the right records in the right condition made by the right artists, the value of their pieces of plastic will continue to go up year after year.
