Advice for selling off childhood collection
I avidly collected Legos when I was growing up (mainly between 2008-2015), but in a year I will be going off to college, so I would like to sell off my collection. I have used Brickset to catalogue my sets, as well as for misc. Lego-related news for a while, so I figured that if anyone had any advice, they would be here! :P
I am looking to sell off the bulk of my collection. This consists of around 150 sets totalling 40k bricks. I also an NXT, and a sizeable set of power functions elements. Most other parts are loose in bins, unsorted, as I primarily MOC'd, especially towards the end of my time with the hobby. (If I decide to sell here, I will provide more detailed info)
My gut instinct was to try to sell the parts by the pound (i.e. on eBay, craigslist, etc.) However, the parts are all roughly 95%+ accounted for, even though the sets are not sorted: there were only a few occasions where bricks left my collection, so most sets would likely be fairly complete.
However, I do not feel I have the time available to sort/rebuild the collection to sell as individual sets.
Knowing this, would it be better to attempt the sell the entire collection in one go to a collector/interested member of this forum? Are there people willing to buy a lot of this size?
Has anyone else been in a situation similar to this one, or are there any suggestions for me as a seller? I am looking to pass on my collection in a way that would be easiest for me as a seller and most valuable to potential buyers. Any and all help is welcome!
