I'm a long time collector, going on 15 years or so in the collectables game and I think my time has come to thin my collection out and call it a day.
My wife and I have been discussing having a child and the fire I once felt during the hunt or even from opening my boxes from eBay has faded away.
I have roughly about 200 GI Joe figures and plan to keep perhaps 50-60 of those figures. The majority of my collection (90-95%) are high grade (9.5-9.8.)
Thing I'm worried about is some of these figures in grades this high are valued above what they are worth, if you know what I mean. I know that most likely I will be taking a loss when I sell, getting 75% of my investment back is something I've come to terms with.
There is always a minority who take your prices as a personal attack and get offended when they see a figure priced above what they consider reasonable.
My question is should I offer these to the board first and disregard those that would take offense or take my figures straight to eBay?
