    Actually, you have very little blues listed. What you have is primarily jazz, R&B, and soul. Records are graded according to one of several standard scales to determine value, Goldmine's being the most respected. Although they may appear to be in great shape, that can be misleading. Some records look awful but actually play fairly clean, while others can look great and sound terrible. If you don't have the time, equipment, or knowledge to grade them aurally, you can still grade them visually according to an accepted standard, but you will always get less for visually graded vinyl. Nothing you listed seems to be of any great value, I would suspect the best you'll do is 5-15 dollars apiece. Your best bet may be to take them to a local record store that deals in used vinyl and see what they offer-never take their first offer, bargain. You will always get more in trade, if that interests you.

    Put the Groove Holmes, Jimmy Smith, Junior Parker, King Curtis, and Herbie Hancock records on eBay and I will buy them.

    eBay is a fantastic place to sell records.

    holy ****, you grandad was clearly a legend, take this list to a vinyl store they usually sell second hand so they probably would be able to give you an estimate if you ask but make sure your asking for what i should sell them for not what they would buy them, because they might try n rip you off. and then give them to me :P

    I'd buy that one if I had farm animals with identity issues.


    The fastest and easiest way to get rid of them would be to sell the whole lot for a lump sum, just use some discernment in who you deal with of course, and maybe cherry pick a few to keep first, I know I would.
