How to bid on my Monthly Auctions

1. Son House — "My Black Mama Part I / My Black Mama Part II" PARAMOUNT 13042 V- His MASTERPIECE and one of the most ICONIC of all Blues records. Exactly THREE known copies including this one! NEVER for sale at any price!!! MB $10,000

2. Charlie Patton — "Poor Me / 34 Blues" VOCALION 02651 E- Something you almost never see: A CLEAN PATTON!!! Gorgeous copy with just a few light scuffs that do not affect play!!!

3. Robert Johnson — "32-20 Blues / Last Fair Deal Gone Down" VOCALION 03445 E GORGEOUS, ALMOST PERFECT COPY of one of the toughest Johnsons to find!!! Super INVESTMENT grade example! Clean Johnsons have been selling for more and more all the time. MB $10,000

4. Robert Johnson — "Milkcow's Calf Blues / Malted Milk" VOCALION 03665 E+/E Just about flawless copy!!! Yeah, it's one of the more common ones, but it sure is not common in this kind of condition! INVESTMENT GRADE!!! MB $10,000

5. Skip James — "Be Ready When He Comes / Jesus Is A Mighty Good Leader" PARAMOUNT 13108 V About three known copies of this one! This copy has a repaired edge problem that plays through—probably your only chance to ever own a copy! MB $8,000
