The Osmonds scored big in 1971 with “One Bad Apple.” The hit single stayed at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 5 weeks. The song was almost recorded first by the Jackson 5. At first, a lot of listeners thought it was Michael and his brothers before realizing it was Donny and his brothers. The 45 is worth no more than $10.00 but if you have the picture sleeve and its credits “Osmond Brothers” as seen here and not “Osmonds,” then the value jumps up to $400.00. Find the most up-to-date value of your records from Mighty John the Record Guy within 24 hours.
