Here. (http://cgi.ebay.com/Largest-STAR-WARS-Collection-Ever-VINTAGE-NEW-77-07-Lot_W0QQitemZ290088289846QQihZ019QQcategoryZ49013Q QssPageNameZWD)

Got between $25,000 - $75,000?
This guy has over 7,500 items from the past 30 years.
There is now way I'd pay that much for all of that. There are a few choice items in there, but it all ain't worth that much, IMO.

It's impressive but he'll NEVER get that much for it. He'd even be lucky to get half that even with the vintage stuff.

I'll buy it, and Slickers mom will pay for it! Thanks Slicker's mom!

I just did the math and if someone won the auction for $25k then that would be about $3.33 per item not including shipping. There's no way that someone is going to pay almost an avg. yearly salary for a star wars collection like this. This guy could do way better selling this off in lots or individually...I mean heck, he could probably do comic/toy conventions and move alot of it.

It's a nice collection, it might be worth the opening bid, but good luck selling it for that. He's probably all bummed out that he has to sell his collection, and excited that he has so many people watching it, but probably has no clue that people are only watching it to see how much it ends up going for if anything. Wow though, the Ebay fee alone just to start the bid at that much must have been huge. If he actually got the 25,000.00 The Pay Pal fee, the EBay final selling fee. So yeah he won't get 25 K even if he gets one bid. I guess I'm being a smart ***. On the otherhand I've seen better collections on here, so I'm not that impressed.

You couldn't pay me 25 K to inventory that. :eek:

This guy also said that he had an e-bay store right? If he does sell the collection it will probably bump him into a different tax bracket, I mean $25k ain't no small amount of money...

Ya know, for as much as the dude has, he could probably get a business license and rent a store front somewhere and sell it cheaper and be better off in the long run than selling it on e-bay.

I know QLD said he was selling his collection, but /i didnt think it would be that quick.

The only way I would buy it is if I hit Mega Millions.

Good Lord! I'd have to buy another house or build an addition just to store all that stuff.

I got my ticket! This Tuesdays jackpot is over $300 million. I would just have to buy a bigger house to store my mass collection! :greedy:

If I had the cash, I'd go and pick it up and start opening every figure right in front of him.

Course, I'd have to borrow all his trash bags to throw out the packaging.

As of this post, you kids have only got 7 1/2 hours left to place your bid.
Waitin' until the last minute, 'eh?
