Are you wanting to know the average selling price for Albums such as this?

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

Hi,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Classical Albums, 1930-40's era have an estimated value on the current market for an average of $40.00 to as much as 75.00 each,. If they are in really good condition they sell at the higher values, meaning they are almost like new, with album covers in tact and still vibrant. Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
.
