This auction has been operated in March and August each year for the past decade. Thousands of items have been sold during that time. Hundreds of drum corps fans have found recordings they lost, loaned to a friend and didn’t get back, or never purchased when first released.

Now is your opportunity to pass along your unneeded recordings, earn some money and make some drum corps fans very happy to find recordings they never thought they would find.
