WOW!  A fabulous experience for both of you!  Great story!

Which Alison Krauss lp did you find?

Too Late to Cry.   Her first on a major (Rounder).

Without the autograph or Quiex it is a $40 album.   I think I would ask a C for it if I were tempted to sell, but I don't think it is going anywhere any time soon.   I have a thing for translucent (not colored) vinyl.

I picked up a nice bunch of jazz records at a local thrift.  They are all probably reissues from the 80s, in mint condition, still in shrink wrap. 
Complete Fats Waller vol 2. (two LP on Bluebird)
An evening with Louis Armstrong and his All stars (2 LP on GNP Crescendo)
King Oliver New York sessions 1929-30 (Bluebird)
Fletcher Henderson.  Hocus Pocus.  (Bluebird)
Giants 3 (Giants of Jazz).  A couple cuts each by Duke, Pops and Lady Day
Barrelhouse Boogie. (Bluebird).

While these are No Noise/digitally remastered LPs and not audiophile quality,  they are quite listenable.  I can't complain for five bucks.....

Yamaha PF800/Dual 721
DBX D5/Sony CA8ES
Yamaha C-2X
Hafler Five Hundred/Sansui AU9500/Heathkit SA-2/Parasound HC-1000
Canton CT800s/Vandersteen 2CE/Klipsch Heresy/Dahlquist DQ-10
