I’m not sure I believe this as I just had my husband empty out his vinyl albums and dragged 4 crates of them to a second-hand store to sell. Time spent: 1/2 hour there and back twice = 2 1/2 hours of my time and got a grand sum of $3 for the records the store wanted.
However, supposedly if you have any of these you could get some dough for them: Beatles, Frank Zappa, Rolling Stones (Decca), Velvet Underground, Can, Kraftwerk, Faust, Soul 45′s and Funk albums, original jazz albums, heavy metal, Public Enemy’s you!, Bum Rush The Show, Raising Hell by Run D.M.C., De La Soul, Roots reggae ( Mango), Second Edition by Public Image Limited, The Happy Mondays’ Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches or early releases of Canadian bands.
In my Smart Shopping Montreal book, I have a section on Second-hand music stores, so you can gather them up and go on a selling spree (buy try not to buy other stuff when you are there).
