If you don't have a use for those, and want to part with them REAL cheap,
I might be interested in taking some of them off your hands. Not that I
am a collector of these things, but a variety of records to play on my
Victrola would be nice (I only have about 20 right now, and most of those
I am afraid to actually play... not to mention I only have a few new
needles left, so until I can figure out a safe replacement, or a safe way
to sharpen old needles, I don't really use the thing at all except to
show it off to people once in a while... my 1950's Rockola juke box gets
the bulk of the entertainment use, but that uses off the shelf record
needles, and standard 45's, so its much safer to play away with)
