Howdy I'm a DFW guy and I pay cash for all kinds of 78 rpm records and collections .. label examples attached.
Reach out and let me know as much as can about what you've got and the best way to contact you. The ideal would to be haven a complete list, artists, labels, song titles and pictures. However, that's not always easy / possible so reach out either way.
Or, if you're a vinyl collector and come across a rare or nice 78 record / collection, perhaps I can buy it from you quick and easy.
I'll pay a finder's fee if you point me to a rare record available somewhere I may not know about.
In addition to Rock and Roll Country String Band Blues Jazz R&B Gospel Pop I'm also particularly interested in Mexican Hawaiian Far Eastern Chinese Japanese etc. Library of Congress recordings, Field Recordings. Especially interested in smallerTexas labels or North Carolina Tennessee Virginia West Virginia Florida, possibly anywhere really.
Hopefully we can strike a deal. Or, at a minimum, I'll do my best to help you understand what you've got and the best way of making sure it finds appreciative owners.
A quick word of advice, no reason to throw away a 78 just because it has a crack or is beat up looking. Unlike vinyl, 78s are far more durable. It MAY be worth keeping. Worth figuring out 100% what it is before trashing!
