You have to know what you are looking at. Realize that just like pop music, there is a ton of crap records, and there are a ton of decent records that were pressed in huge numbers. If it were easy to find, it wouldn't be collectible or valuable. Audiophile pressings usually aren't worth that much. They are relatively new and usually re-pressings of worthy but previously released recordings. It's the originals that are worth money.
Ebay is the place to sell records. It is watched carefully by record collectors all over the world. Be aware though that if you have something worth money, in order to bring the best price, they will expect you know how to properly grade it and they expect a money back guarantee. That is the unspoken rule among the serious traders.
