Welcome To My BEST EVER R&B Vocal Groups 45's Auction!!

BEST EVER R&B Vocal Groups 45's Auction Highlights!

Legendary Collection on Consignment

Welcome to what I must say is the very best auction of its kind that I have ever had! The owner, now deceased, put together an absolutely incredible collection over a long lifetime!

I have been dealing in these types of records for over 50 years and this one tops them all!!

I set the minimum bids at very reasonable prices as the estate wants all of these records to be sold. Expect some bargains and some fierce competition. You should request a call back on any item you don't want to lose.

Thank you for all your past, current and future bids and participation and PLEASE get your bids in early. The post office is running slower than ever.

My name is John Tefteller-I have been buying and selling rare phonograph records for the past 35 years. I have a worldwide reputation for my knowledge of rare records, especially Blues 78's.

My personal collection contains some of the rarest records on the planet. My auctions in Discoveries magazine featured some of the rarest records on the planet. Many have sold for "record" prices. For top quality records, no one can top The World's Rarest Records!

I have the world's largest inventory of Blues, Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll 78's with over 75,000 in stock. I also have a fabulous selection of over 100,000 45's from the 1950's and early 1960's in the following categories: Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly, Rock & Roll, Girl Groups, Surf and Country.

I am always interested in buying more rare records! I will pay top dollar for your rare Blues and Rhythm & Blues 45's and 78's in Near Mint condition. Before you sell your rare records to ANYONE, you should at least talk to me. I consistently pay the highest prices for records for my collection and am more than fair when buying for resale.

Email my webmaster to sign up for my email newsletter! I'll have upcoming auction highlights. We will NEVER give out your information to ANYONE!

Don't forget to bid and to get your bids in early! If you really want to secure your selections, please take advantage of my "call back" system. Questions? Call my cell phone: (541) 659-7175. Good luck to all!

Good luck on your bids, everyone!
