In the 2009 Fort Worth A T & T yellow pages under Records, Tapes, CD's Used & Vintage there are two places that might help you. Also Half Price book buys old records, but they don't pay much. In your browser look for old records for sale some of the sites may have what you are looking for.
There is a resurgence in vinyl. Even my 17 year old is getting into them. While many albums aren't worth much, especially if they aren't in great condition, many are worth quite a bit. And at an oldies record store in my area, I saw some going for hundreds of dollars. Search the internet, look for specific titles, you may be surprised what you have value wise. Personally, I buy them by the box at rummage sales for the nostalgic value, but I am always hoping to find the big one with cash value.
There isn't a lot of value, but most cities of some size have a store or two which buys old records. You could find one near you and give a call for an estimate.
Also google old records, buy and sell. Definitely check on ebay and see if anything is going on. I worked in an antique shop for 8+ years and we sold our records for average of 3 dollars per. Occasionally for one dollar, sometimes 5 dollars.
Unless it's a special record, that's probably near average. But after getting some info, try craigslist.

I have old 78 records. How do I find out if they are worth any money?
I didn't sell the vinyls instead I painted on them and made them into beautiful clocks. You can purchase the clock works at craft stores and they are very easy to assemble. If you don't paint you can cut out photos of the family, black and white are great and make a really interesting artsy project. Have fun!
I have about 200 old 78 RPM records of all kinds from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. How much could I possibly get for all of them at one time?
I would snope around on my local craiglist.org and ebay and see what the various titles are going for. Some sell better individually, and others as a lot.
For example, right now my husband and I are redecorating our basement and are looking for songs of the 60's, 70's and 80's, specifically ones we liked and such as Elvis, Doris Day, Bing Crosby....We wouldn't buy a large lot unless some of these artist were included.
