MUSICRAFT RECORDS RELEASE - SET OF EIGHT 12" 78rpm RECORDS - comes in an outer box which has some damage.

Looks like this set was barely played! Cover is in GREAT condition (completely intact but part has come unglued from the spine, light wear to edges & corners, small amount of writing on inside cover) and ALL records are in E / EXCELLENT condition (very shiny surface, few light paper scuffs / hairline scratches, LOOK GREAT - visual grading).

SORRY FOR HIGH INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PRICES, BUT THIS SET IS VERY HEAVY (set alone weighs 8lbs) AND WILL BE COSTLY TO SHIP OVERSEAS.


Buyer to pay postage:

$8.50 shipping (bookrate/media mail) within the US,
$65.00 to Canada, OR
$85.00 for international postage.

US Priority mail and insurance will vary. All 78s are double-boxed with sufficient packaging and protection.


Each 78 is graded carefully and conservatively using the standard VJM 78rpm grading system.

Are these records shellac or vinyl? You may not be able to tell, but vinyl would have some flexibility to them. But it's a risk to test shellac records for flexibility for obvious reasons! Sometimes late 40s 78s say unbreakable or vinylite on the label. Thanks, Marc.

They are definitely shellac. Any interest in buying the set?

I found this set a few years ago in a Goodwill store--autographed by Steinberg. The records looked unplayed and the album was intact. I offered it on ebay for $25, hoping it would go for more. It didn't, but someone bought it and another set with 3 12" records. So I shipped all 11 records from SF to NY. I was in suspense for a couple weeks, expecting breakage, but the buyer did not notify me, so I assume they all got there intact. A real trial-by-fire in shipping!
