Last Chance: ~50 Vintage 78 RPM records

My wife uncovered a stash of vintage records, mostly 78 RPM oldies on Columbia, Capitol, Decca, RCA, Mercury, King, Coral, Dana, Blue Jay etc, with a couple of long play 33 1/3s that her parents had many years ago.  I hate like heck to see these go into the dustbin, so if there's any record collectors out there who wan these, make me an offer via craigslist, email or twitter in the next couple of days.  These records are old, fragile and generally in good but not fine shape.  They are heavy, fragile and without sleeves, so local pickup only in the greater San Francisco Bay area, e.g. Santa Cruz, San Jose, Santa Clara, San Mateo, possibly East Bay. 

Among the titles:

  • Bill Haley - Razzle Dazzle / Two Hound Dogs
  • Les Paul - Jazz Me Blues / Just One More Chance, Chicken Reel / Mockin' Bird Hill
  • Andrews Sisters - I See, I See
  • Nelson Riddle - Robin Hood
  • Continental 5 - Marianna
  • Eddie Arnold - Take Me in Your Arms
  • Boyd Bennett - Seventeen
  • Joe Fingers Carr - Ivory Rag
  • Frankie Castro - Steamboat
  • Frankie Laine - Jealousy, Waiting at the End of the Road
  • Mills Brothers - Nevertheless
  • Patti Page - Every day
  • Perry Como - Hoop Dee Doo
  • Bing Crosby - Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?
  • Doris Day - Canadian Capers
  • Vic Damone - Son of a Sailor
  • Les Brown - Sentimental Journey
  • A dozen Polka 78s including Payday Polka, Hey Hey Polka, Metro Polka, Holka Polka, Party Polka, Polka Town, and assorted Frankie Yankovic and his Yanks records.  (Yes, they're related.)  

Ok, so my wife's parents weren't rockers.  But still, this grab bag of records might be meaningful to a collector.  If there are no good offers, we'll frame a couple and then melt the rest.  But I hate to think of doing that.  I will also post these on Craigslist, so if you want them, let me know. 

Contact me via email with your offer (link in the upper right of this post) or twitter @ZUrlocker or a comment below.  Happy to swap for vintage Infocom games, Dennis Wheatley crime dossiers (original or early 80s reprints) or whatever cash you think this is worth.
