FOR SALE: Large Lot of 20 Morrison STUNNING splatter discs-

Post by gramophone-georg »

You know how sometimes things work in your head but not in real life? :)
I've been hanging onto a stash of Morrison splatter records for years now wanting to make a wall display in my record room- and I just don't have the desire to make it happen because it's a very tall room, and I would need to put them along the top of the walls. This would mean moving everything out... so... I decided to float them for sale and see if there are any takers.

These are Morrison records, a little regional label out of Seattle that operated in the immediate postwar era.

The ones offered here are probably the most stunning and vibrant examples I've seen. Similar records have sold on eBay for around the $150 mark, sometimes more, sometimes less.

I'm offering the 20 records pictured. All are in clean condition, suitable for framing even... if desired. Some are autographed by Morrison artist "Bonnie Guitar" Tutmarc, for what that is or is not worth.

Anyways... I'm offering these as a lot for $1500 including careful packing and shipping (in USA), and there will be some "bonus" records that are splatter but not nearly so vivid included. See pictures. This could make an incredible wall display.

Please PM or Email with questions. Please also note that these are VINYL 78s. Thanks!

That's a reasonable price... $45 each, and you don't have to hunt for years to get them, like I did... :cry:
