Wondering what your OLD RECORDS are worth?

Welcome to the iGuide Record Collector's Price Guide

IGuide is proud to host the online Old Record Price Guide. The price guide is maintained by Jon R. Warren, whose price guide books have been the authority on collectibles values since 1985. TThe searchable database consists of detailed reports in an ever-growing database of items in this category. Each Price Guide Details Page includes current market values in ten different grades. The database is updated constantly.

NOTE: Because there have been millions of records issued over the years, our guide seeks to list only the most valuble ones. Our staff is working diligently to expand our listings.

How To Search the Database

Enter keywords (example: ELVIS PRESLEY and always include the words RECORD) into the searchbox at the top of this page, then click the WHAT'S IT WORTH button. Our search engine will find matching pages based on keywords you type into the Search Box. Too many results? Be more specific. Not enough results? Be less specific.

About Prices

Prices vary widely. We strive to reflect actual selling prices rather than Internet "asking" prices, which are often inflated. The Prices shown on our Price Guide Detail Pages are reviewed and updated by our Board of Advisors. They are as up-to-date as possible. Want to suggest a Price Update?

Market Report

The market for the rarest records continues to be strong. The rare 1920s through 1960s keys from Paramount, Vocalion and others in original 'like new' condition are very much sought after and sell quickly at high prices. Beginning in the late 1930s, records were usually mass-produced, thus making them quite common. Old Records from about 1960 onward are VERY common in most cases. Still, many command good prices on eBay and other sites, while others fail to sell or sell at far below original retail.

Where to Sell

We recommend TOP RARE RECORD DEALER If you do not wish to do the work of selling them yourself. One such site is SELLRECORDS.US owned by 2nd Markets Corporation of Chattanooga, (full disclosure, 2nd Markets owns this site).
