    I'm thinking of selling my whole collection off as a lot; either on eBay or to TF Source, BBTS, etc. I know that selling them off individually or in smaller lots would net more cash, but honestly I'd rather let it all go at once to reduce the desire to hold onto some stuff.

    All are loose unless noted otherwise. It's not a huge list (somewhere between 200 and 300 bots), but it's still a task to go through. I've got an idea of their market value individually, but don't have clue what to expect as a lot. Many thanks in advance for any who try to wade through this list.:bowdown: 

    EDIT: Also, if anyone who went through this before would like to chime in with advice it is more than welcomed. :)

    This is gonna sound ridiculous , but I'd put ya in the ballpark of say 2500- 3500. I'm no expert though. Hey good luck bro.


    Edit- on second thought, I'm really low balling ya. Your MT YG cld really get ya far if you listed him on eBay.

    I'd say in the range of $3,066 to $3,500 but I did skip some figures like the Beast-era stuff. You could get lucky and get almost $4,000.

    btw, I actually calculated the numbers on a notebook. It took me an entire page, front and back. lol.

    To be honest, I'm no expert at this either, but send this list to BBTS and TFSource and find the average of what both places would offer you for it. Then multiply it by 1.5, 2, 2.5, or 3 and sell it at that. Might want to offer free shipping though... People would feel a little better about buying with free shipping.

    You are better off listing stuff separately on ebay. BBTS will low ball the hell outta you. I recently offered them a store credit or cash for MP Megs. They told me 50 or 65, I sold him on ebay for 165.

    you'll never get much for lots. always sell things individually.

    Double "This"!
    People might be chiming in saying its "worth $4000" - and indeed maybe it is - but that don't mean you'll find somebody who has that change around to buy it.

    Triple "this"!
    I also think this is somewhere in the $3,000 range, but you're will be better off selling individually. Perhaps in the B/S/T section?

    Even if you don't want to sell everything individually you should at least break them up into smaller lots.

    Yea I have a feeling that if you put up the entire lot on Ebay you would be lucky to get $1200-1300. I've seen similar lots only go for $1000 before. Maybe look for a shop that sells your stuff on ebay for you. Otherwise yeah break into lots and your best premium high sellers should be sold separately to maximum price.

    I never sold anything to TFSource but I have sold stuff to BBTS. I don't know what it's like for anyone else, but it seems to take the vintage department over a week to respond to my emails. That's another reason why I suggest selling the stuff yourself. You could auction off your collection on Ebay and get paid in the time it takes them just to make you an offer.

    Actually, lots can sell very well. It all depends on what comprises them.
