    Question Had a baby and want to sell my collection. Tips?

    Hi everyone. It's been quite some time since I was active in the MVS buying scene and I have a respectable collection that I am looking to get off my hands along with other items in my gaming collection. The idea is sell enough for a down payment on a bigger house then get out of this one, fix it up a bit, and sell that one. Anyway, I haven't sold anything in quite some time, if ever that I can recall, as I was scared away by the whole Tonk Areo Fighters craziness that went on a while back. I've noticed that the price guides aren't updating and am trying to find out what to place as prices for my games in the for sale section assuming it would be worth it. One of the items I am most concerned about is a pristine Nightmare in the Dark english kit. Can't seem to find enough info about what it's worth now. Anyone have any recommendations on where to brush up so I have a better idea of how to price these games? Thanks in advance. Moobs.

    You live in FL. I'm sure Billy Shitt or Wyo will personally drive to your house and "do you a favor" and take that collection off your hands.

    Hilariously they built one just down the street from our house so we don't have to go to the ghetto and run people over any longer.

    Here's the thing. If you get rid of everything because you have to, either due to finances, pressure from the spouse, lack of space, whatever, you'll end up resenting whatever caused you to get rid of it and probably end up rebuying it later at a higher price. On the other hand, if you want to get rid of it for those same reasons it can be very liberating. You have to decide what part of the hobby you really like, the collecting/hoarding or the actual playing. Personally, I'm with Panda, getting rid of all the crap was very liberating, and I used the cash to buy something I use every day and I have never missed anything that I got rid of. And I can still play any game that I ever had easily one way or another.
