BOMBASTIUM 78 SALES
SPECIALIST IN PRE-WAR BLUES, JAZZ AND COUNTRY 78S
FOR OVER 40 YEARS.
CONSIGNMENT SERVICE: I can get you the highest prices for your rare blues, jazz and country 78s. Over the past 15 years I have handled several top-notch pre-war collections, and I consistently get some of the highest prices for clean copies of these records. In the history of eBay since the very beginning, 5 of the 7 highest prices realized for a 78 were on my listings.
COLLECTIONS PURCHASED: I am always in the market for rare 78s from a few pieces to a complete collection if a sale is preferable to consignment. If you are thinking about selling now or in the future, or know of a collection that might be available, please get in touch.
COLLECTION APPRAISALS: My weekly auctions have kept me on top of current market values and trends in pre-war blues, jazz and country 78s. If at some point you need a professional, detailed appraisal, my knowledge and experience is second to none.
ADD BOMBASTIUM TO YOUR SAVED EBAY SEARCHES. My curated weekly eBay listings always contain an interesting cross section for a wide variety of interests including on occasion paper ephemera, post-war 78s and LPs.
I am listing a run of 10" jazz, blues and world music LPs that have been in storage for over 50 years. For the most part, they are close to new, possibly having being played a couple times, but all were well cared for until they were boxed up long ago. They will fit into one of the vinyl grades below, and none in lesser condition will be listed with the possible exception of a few rarities.
Vinyl Grading scale:
M- - Like new, as close to new without being still sealed.
EX - Similar to M- with very minor handling signs, small superficial scuffs from sliding in and out of jacket.
VG+ - Shiny with no groove wear, a few more signs of handling, light inaudible marks.
VG - Shiny without the mirror like surface, light signs of groove play, spindle marks, light surface scratches or scuffs.
Looking more like a lightly used but well taken care of record.
Covers will be described separately.
