If you still have your vintage vinyl records, when was the last time you looked at them? If you're anything like us, it's probably been a minute. Though if they're collecting dust in your attic or basement, you might want to pull them out — not for tunes, but for cold hard cash.
Yes, some vintage vinyl is worth some serious dough today. You might be aware that vinyl in general has come back into style again. So that means many people that don't have vintage vinyl on hand are more eager than ever to start collecting it. "The antiques market seems often heavily influenced by nostalgia and therefore whomever has the buying power at any given time directs the value of collectible items," John Neiheisel, an art and antique specialist said. So in other words, if you have an original vintage vinyl record that's in high demand right now, be prepared that you just might hit the jackpot.
