A vinyl collector’s dream come true.

Last month, Minnesota record store owner Rob Sheeley stumbled upon the kind of haul that sounds too good to be true. In a basement in Big Spring, TX, he came across the entire inventory of a record store that closed in 1984.

The stock added up to 100,000 LPs preserved for over 30 years in mint condition with their original wrapping. Sheeley bought the entire stock for $100,000 and began the process of moving it to his store, Mill City Sound, in Hopkins, MN.

According to an interview with the Star Tribune, the collection includes countless popular records from the early 80s with releases from Prince, Ozzy Osbourne, Bruce Springsteen, James Brown, the Ramones and more. Take a look at some of the photos below and head to Sheeley’s Mill City Sound if you’re in the area and want in on the action (although we imagine he’s still busy cataloging it all).
