Not sure if this is the right forum for this or not, but here goes.
I recently decided to pull my collection out of storage and put it up for sale. I used to work for a major retailer and snagged some figure cases to store all of my figures in when I had put them away. It appears that over the last 6 years sitting in storage the cards have taken on slight bends.
I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas on a way to straighten these out. I was thinking of sandwiching the offending areas between a pair of books with some additional weight on top, to flatten the card back out. Does anyone know if this will work, or have a better idea?
The other question is: Are the old figures from about '95-'98 really declining a lot in value? I picked up a copy of Lee's and noticed that nearly my entire collection is selling on the after market for about 4 dollars or less per figure, and this is if they are on Mint cards. I remember the Theater Edition Jedi Luke going for $100 plus, now he's worth $30 or less. Is there a better place to look for pricing my figures. I'm not looking for top dollar, but they are in pretty good condition, with a few minor exceptions, and I would hope they could fetch a decent price.
Thanks in advance for any input.
