This assumes that collectors collect 78s solely for the musical or spoken content. Many collectors treat the physical object with as much reverence as the sound that's on it. Hopefully there will be enough real collectors who value the objects themselves that will keep the hobby alive, just as in other collectibles that have outlived their usefulness but are still valued as pieces of history.
