There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves. - Luke 21:25

Introducing..."The Buddy System"

Record collecting is a community sport and much more enjoyable when shared with others. So we have developed Nauck's Buddy System - a way for us to grow the community of collectors and foster new friendships.

What's in it for us?
We get new bidders and the 78rpm fraternity grows (which it desperately needs to do; no one's interests are served if we don't find younger collectors to pick up where us old farts leave off!)

What's in it for you?     
For every new collector you refer, you will receive $10 in Buddy Credit, which will be subtracted from your auction invoice. There is no limit to the number of names you can submit, but they must be people we don't already have in our database, and they must make bids of their own in VRA 63. (The first person making a referral will get the credit.) If your Buddy Credit exceeds your auction total, the unused portion will roll over to the next auction - Buddy Credit never expires! But it does apply to auction wins only; it may not be used for Resource Catalog orders, shipping costs or sales tax.

What's in it for your buddies?
They get introduced to the exciting world of Nauck's: collector's resources, Bidder Request Shows, Disc-O-Files, bidder contests and, of course, Nauctions. But that's not all. If their VRA 63 auction winnings meet or exceed...

      $50, they will receive a free copy of Note the Notes - an Illustrated History of the Columbia Record Label

      $100, they will receive a copy of The Advertising History of the Berliner & Victor Talking Machine

      $250, they will receive a copy of The Collector's Guide to Victor Records

      $500, they will receive all three!

To participate, simply email us your names along with their mailing addresses, emails & phone numbers. Remember, only one bidder can be credited with a referral, so don't let the spring wind down on this offer.

At Nauck's Vintage Records, Everybuddy's a winner!


The Bidder Request Show . . .

by all accounts was a resounding success. And by "resounding," I mean that you can listen to it again and again by purchasing the BRS 62 CD. For a measly $24 (postpaid), you'll receive over 14 hours of fun brought to you by your gentle hosts, Kurt, Mark & Jack. (The 10 hour Radio Dismuke broadcast plus four bonus hours only available on the CD.) Click on the Resource Catalog at left to order copies for you and all your record-collecting friends. They make terrific stocking stuffers!
