Prerecorded Tapes / Moldy B/C Tapes on eBay
« on: May 19, 2011, 11:04:06 AM »
There is a lot of 56 Barclay Crocker tapes being auctioned on eBay ending May 23:

All the tapes are moldy, with the amount of mold varying from a little to a lot.  The seller says he played three of them on a friends tape machine and they play fine.  (Uh Oh.  I suppose his friend will eventually have some moldy tapes to sell, too.)

There seems to be a lot of interest in the auction, and bidding is up to $64 already with four days to go.

Can anyone tell me why these tapes would be worth anything?  I would have thrown them away.  I don't get it.

Prerecorded Tapes / Tape Hold Down Tape Question
« on: February 03, 2011, 02:20:00 AM »
I'd like to get opinions on acceptable hold down tape for keeping the free end of prerecorded tapes from unwrapping.

I started using round 3/4" diameter Avery labels and they seem to work fine, at least for now.  But I don't know if there is any long-term risk or if they will keep the tapes wound properly during prolonged storage.

Is there anything wrong with doing this?  Should I replace them all with genuine hold down tape??
