Now that I have hooked up my "suitcase" turntable to my new CD player, I can enjoy my old vinyl records with suitable sound and volume quality (frankly, they sound better than CDs).
As such, vinyl records are making a big comeback and collectors are constantly on the lookout for rarities.
"America's digital goddess" Kim Komando has posted an article at her website on being on the lookout for rare records that may be stashed away in your home and could bring you some serious cash.

Did you ever think vinyl records would come back in style? Believe it or not, they have.
I remember having tons of vinyl record albums and singles when I was a child. There was nothing better than kicking back and relaxing to the soothing sounds of Miles Davis as the LP made its way around the turntable. Until of course CDs took over the music scene in the mid 1980s.
Nowadays, CDs aren't even the primary way people consume music. Most of us have moved onto streaming music with services like Pandora, Spotify, and Amazon Music Unlimited.
But with the resurgence of vinyl, there's an opportunity for wise collectors to make some serious coin. If you had the foresight to hang on to that record collection all these years, you might be sitting on a pile gold...so to speak.
That's why you should check out your stash and see if you have any gems that are worth some big money. Keep reading and I'll tell you what to look for.
