Record-Rama Music Collection for Sale Again on eBay

If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again. "After a $3 million bidder turned out to be a fraud, the Record-Rama music collection is back on the sales block.

The record shop, based in the Pittsburgh suburb of Ross Township, is putting the 3 million music recordings back up for auction on
eBay starting next Wednesday, March 19", said store owner Paul Mawhinney in an interview with the Pittsburgh Business Times.

The new auction, which will require high bidders to submit credit information, will end at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 29.

If he doesn't get the offer he's looking for maybe I could take the collection off his hands on consignment and sell it through Amazon's FBA. That would keep me busy for a few years.

Just my 12%

Hi Randy I'm from the Pittsburgh area.
Boy is he having problems selling this .
A couple days after the last auction fell through I heard an interview on a local radio station with Paul and he said he had it sold to a collector who contacted him off Ebay. I guess that fell through.
I DJ'd in my younger days and bought many records from this gentleman. The collection is truly awsome and really needs a collector to step up and preserve it for history.

Dave, maybe he just needs to donate it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

It would be nice if the hall would buy it.
Paul really needs the money. He has some pretty severe health problems he has had a few strokes , he has diabetes and is almost blind. He wants to retire.

Now if he let you sell it individully you would be selling for the next 10 years the collection is that huge , it is in an immense warehouse.

You would think with all of this press that somebody would come forward.
