Calling all crate-digging vinyl lovers – the ultimate record sale is set to take place tomorrow at the New York Public Library’s Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound. The NYPL will be selling 22,000 duplicate records – which represent decades of unsolicited donations – in order to raise money for the ongoing expansion of their collection. Not only will you have the chance to glimpse many a rare (and potentially hilarious) 70s album covers, the vinyl is also said to be in great condition  – according to a statement from the NYPL, “There is a great chance that someone will find more than one diamond in the not-so-rough. Many of the recordings have never been played, bear promotional stamps, and remain sealed in shrink wrap.”

According to the record sale’s Tumblr, most LPs will only be $1 and Latin music will be well represented:

Tomorrow is the last day to rifle through the collection! The sale will take place at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Center, Donald and Mary Oenslager Gallery, First Floor Saturday, August 10, 2013, from 12 – 5:45 p.m.
