Next time you’re in your dad’s basement and you’re not thinking about getting murdered down there, because every basement is a crime scene waiting to happen, make sure you dust off your old man’s classic vinyls. If your dad doesn’t have a basement, or if you don’t know who your dad is, try to see if your friend’s dad (who always liked you better than his own son) has some of these records that you can steal and sell for some big bucks.

The vinyls below are worth quite a bit of money.
