I'm 38 and started collecting when I was 7--way before alot of you were born (thanks alot for making me feel old...Actually, I'm a 16 year old in a 38 year old body). Anyways, I have all kinds of vinyl, I think around 180 albums and probably around 80 or 90 45s. I have all the US releases, mostly on Apple, imports from everywhere. I wouldn't give up my vinyl for nothing. I hate to shill for ebay, but you can get albums in pretty good shape that aren't as expensive as the ones you guys have been looking at. Of course it all depends on what label, condition, sealed/unsealed, etc. that you are looking for. Check it out, otherwise you can find a ton of different sites besides Ebay that specialize in vinyl. Try a Google search and you'll come up with alot. Hope this helps.
