Myself, I play them and love it.  That being said, there is a email
group being run by Alex Maddocks that is for sales of 78's (the "78-c"
list).  Do a search on his name, should turn up the enrollment site.
If you list your records there, please include the label, record
number, artist and titles.  In most cases expect a buck apiece or so.
There are also dealers who buy 78's, notably for
mundane stuff and Nauck's (do a search on Nauck) for elegant stuff.

Incidentally, keeping records in old-style albums is a great way to
break them -- that happens when you turn the pages.
