Thanks mbassoc2003 for being patient with me on the purchase of items from both eBay auctions and private purchase.  The packages arrived intact and the contents are undamaged.  No small feat when shipping overseas!

Now if we could find a away to fix the damn cost of shipping overseas everything would be perfect!

My condolences.

When selling your gaming items, beware of people who are too eager to buy them.  At the same time, do not expect lots of money, either.  Detailed descriptions are good, and pictures are better.

Without specific product names and conditions, these are rough guesses.  Assuming the boxed sets and books are for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons or 2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons:
  • Unopened boxed sets = cover price to 2x cover price
  • Opened boxed sets = 1/2 cover price to cover price
  • Dungeon 35, Dragons 78+ = perhaps $1 apiece
  • TSR fiction books  = $1-$2, complete series sell well
  • AD&D game books = $5 - $20 apiece

Dice, metal miniatures, and other miscellaneous gaming products can also bring in some amount of money.

My condolences as well.

You have already received some excellent advice. I would add the following.  I recommend selling the box sets, especially if unopened, individually.  Modules likewise, especially if they are unopened or excellent condition, sell them separately.  

The Dragon Magazines I would sell all in one lot, especially all issues after issue #50.  Issues between numbers 35 and 50 you could sell in bunches of 5 issues, and prior to 35 you should sell individually.  

Dungeon Magazine is different (if you have any of these).  I'd sell all issues individually, especially if they are in excellent shape.  If they are in used but O.K. shape, I'd sell them in lots of five to ten issues with runs of issue numbers preferable.

The hardback books depend on what printing it is and what volume it is.  There is a guide on this website on how to tell the difference, but if you need help, don't hesitate to ask, but pictures of the items in question really help us help you.  If they are in obviously used condition, I'd probably sell them all together.

If you don't want to go through the hassle of selling things individually, there are people on this site, and other places, who buy large lots of items and re-sell them, but your profit isn't as large.  I would guess you would probably get a better offer from people on this site than you could a brick and mortar dealer.  

Even just lumping these items into four or five lots on eBay would yield significantly better results than one huge lot.  eBay has its risks, but if you have some experience selling, go strictly domestic, block some of the more devious sellers we gossip about on this site, and use Delivery Confirmation, you should be fine.

We wish you the best.   :)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

As an aside, packing and shipping your items is a whole 'nother topic.  This is the wrong thread, but I'll chime in anyway.

(1) Delivery Confirmation is $0.80.  Get it so everyone stays honest and the package stays trackable.

(2) Books can be sent Media Mail for a cost of about $3 - $5 apiece.

(3) Old magazines can arguably be sent Media Mail because they are collectibles.  Stricly speaking, no magazine can be sent Media Mail.  As an alternative, magazines can be packed well and sent in a Medium Flat-Rate Priority Box for $10.80 or thereabouts.

(4) Boxed sets can be sent Parcel Post for around $9 or in a Medium Flat-Rate Box for $10.80.

(5) When packing and shipping your items, remember that your packages will go through the US Postal System.  Your package may be stepped on, dropped, crushed, or otherwise abused.  One of the workers at my local post office throws my packages from a distance of ten feet into the mail bin.  And I regularly receive packages and envelopes with smashed corners.  So . . . pack well to avoid surprising your buyer with damaged goods.
