The most efficient places to sell old vinyl records are online marketplaces such as Discogs, eBay and Amazon. Brick-and-mortar record stores may accept trade-ins or sales, but this varies widely by local area as most stores are independently owned.
The value of a record depends on several factors, including the age of the record, the condition of the record and the rarity of the record pressing. Records are generally not considered very valuable if they are not in like-new condition. Records made before 1950 or after 1970 are not usually worth as much as records from the 1950s and 1960s.
