Pittsburgh

One of the largest record collections up for sale on ebay

20 February, 2008 (18:14) | Pittsburgh

Paul Mawhinney’s obsession grew into the 3 million records that now fill the Record Rama archives in Ross (North Hills).  He’s starting the bidding at 3 million dollars.  Each row of records is longer than a bowling lane.  He’s got rare elvis, rolling stone, and led zepplin records.  What sets him apart is that he’s made this his life work, filing and keeping clean sorted count of every record as well as creating a digital archive of the entire collection.  Absolutely amazing.  It’s no wonder the national archives have expressed interest.  It really would be a shame to see this leave Pittsburgh, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it went to cleveland’s rock and roll hall of fame or some other museum.  Truly impressive.
