Use the Bricklink Priceguide. It will give you the basic value for each set, but if you intend on selling your whole collection as one, the value will be significantly less than the average used price of the collection. If you are willing to spend the time to sell each set individually, the price guide is more appropriate.

I agree with what fyrmedhatt has posted. You have a lot of good sets in your collection. If you need the money quickly, you won't get the prices that will show up on Bricklink. If you have the time, you could definitely get prices close to what's on Bricklink. It really dpends on what your situation is.

Yeah that is a good point.
I would prefer to sell it as one whole collection because I'd rather see it go to one person than all split up. It's a collection that I've added to for over 10 years. Just unsure what price I could get for it.

I think the problem is trying to unload such a collection like that is tough. Not many people can buy such a large collection. Unless you take a steep discount off the price. The romanticized idea that someone will come in and pick up your collection and love it like you is a fantasy unfortunately. Anyone who collects has already started. And someone who is starting doesnt know the values that well and wouldn't understand the prices some of those items fetch.

Best thing is to sell the sets piece meal for an average going rate equal or lower than current value if you need to move them.

I'm not sure anyone person would buy all of that, but I'll take Jango Fett's Slave I, Mos Espa Podrace, and General Grievous Chase for around $10.  :tongue: I'm kidding. But I could see you selling the whole lot for around $2000, maybe $2500. It's worth it!

The problem I see with the collection is that the person who has inoff money to buy it as a whole sounds like a person who already would have them. I suggest to sell them individually. I would offer you $2000 but unfortunately I don't have all that money.
