    Question The Best Way to Sell Vintage Figures?

    I have several vintage carded ROTJ figures that I want to sell. Most are in excellent condition. I was looking at the prices that companies like Brian's Toys sell these for and had sticker shock. A quick look at what similar figures go for on Ebay was quite a bit less.

    I was wondering what the best option might be to maximize my resale value of these vintage items. Surely Brian's Toys won't offer near what they sell them for and Ebay prices are hit and miss. Any hints, suggestions, anecdotes? Thanks!

    In the e-mails, Brian's Toys used to put a buy list at the end. Of course, they were around half of what he sells them for.

    If you use E-Bay, you can set a reserve price on the auction. That way, that is the minimum the figure will go for. You can get a price guide or 2 and find out what their book price is.

    Good luck

    I would set my reserve price at what Brian's Toys buy price is, this way if your reserve isn't met you can just sell it to BT's or if it is surpassed, well, that's even better. Either way, you win.

    Of course Ebay is about the only good option. But if you're into trading, that's the best way. You might could trade a figure that you could get $40 cash, for $50 worth of trade. Just finding someone to trade with is tough. Try toy shows and conventions, or even local dealers, or the forums here if you trust sending stuff in the mail.
