    Opinions/help! (Selling off a collection...?)

    Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted... I'll make a long story short!

    I am planning on moving soon, and I have a fair sized collection. I have been holding onto them in hopes of not having to do this, but I don't think I'll get back into collecting any time soon and I may as well "liquidate" some assets.

    Since I've been out of it for so long, I want to know what my best option might be for selling. I have a pretty grand Sam Gagner collection, and I'm wondering if its best to sell it off as a collection (and do I do it on eBay or at a store??) and then I have just other random cards I didn't trade or sell.

    What is the best way to go?

    Thanks!

    Id post it the entire pc on craigslist. If u sold it separately,and u have high end cards, then u have to keep paying expresspost to ship it out which adds up quickly

    Thanks for the input so far. What about Beckett? Is that still relevant?

    Good to see you on the site again in any capacity.

    Before moving anything, I would wait for Gagner to start racking up the points this year (his cards going up in value) and then look to move them. His stuff is as little valued now as it has ever been, and I don't see why it wouldn't rebound if/when he starts to cash in on all the goals that team is going to score.

    Also, I would suggest selling them one at a time. If you sell in a lot or in bulk, I GUARANTEE, everyone who inquires will be expecting some sort of discount.

    Hey Paul! Good point, hopefully he'll have a good year. I probably won't get around to doing all this for a while so it works out.

    I would recommend not selling through a store, nothing against LCSs, but they buy to resell, so you'll get more money by selling yourself. I would start by posting on kijiji, craigslist or whatever your preferred classifieds website is. Then move to selling through SCF, then ebay. This should reduce the fees you have to pay (no fees on classifieds, just paypal fees on SCF, then ebay fees). Good luck with everything! And I could always use some Sam Gagner:P

    Do people actually use craigslist/kijiji for cards?
