if you go through it all then you could probably rank it all as what you don't ever want to get rid of to stuff you could probably let go of (with a heavy heart)- not that this would be an easy decision in any way at all, but could probably save you selling it all.

tough call either way

Whats up fellow collectors? Long time no post.

Ive bought a house. Nice. The not so nice part is money is running short. The only thing i have thats any value is my Foo collection. The hockeycards didnt pay off... Damn you Wayne Gretzky... The options are the following:

1. Sell my family. This will likely get me into all sorts of legal trouble
2. Rob a bank. Again legal troubles...
3. Convince someone rich do donate me money. Since i dont know any rich people so i have to resolve to stalking people which again will likely get me into legal trouble...
4. Write a book how to earn easy money. Again down the road someone will probably sue me for false advertising.
5. Sell my Foo Fighters collection. Could get me into legal trouble when im trying to steal it back...

This isnt a easy decision but many long hard hours of pondering i have decided to sell it all. Im really gutted about this. I do not want to sell it but i need to. Actually i just cried a little about it. And i probably will not ever get it back either. The last few years my total time scouring the interwebs is probably 30 minutes in total. So i guess with sadness my collecting days are over. (Just for the moderators im not selling it here and please do not send me any PMīs about wanting to buy it. I will not reply here.) So im asking for help.

Should i try to sell it all in one lot or should i break it up? Breaking it up will likely earn me a lot more money but its gonna take a lot of time administrating everything which is time i dont have since im gonna need it all to renovate my house. Or should i give bankrobbing another go?

AGAIN IM NOT SELLING IT HERE IM ONLY ASKING ADVICE!
I always remember you were one of the very first to welcome me here and give me advice on the board and how things here worked, so that's sad to hear - but I totally understand. I had a few moments in the last 8 months with no job where I looked at saying stuff it... I just know one thing: once you do there is no going back, it's just too hard and too demoralising. But then upi are a bit different as you say you've not been "in it" deeply for a few years so you were kinda in catch up mode anyway, or asking yourself should I bother etc.

So if you are going "out" then I owe you the best advice I have in return. I hope you won't use it, but yeah I know where your head's at.

Yes break it up, but yes lharris92 is right - rank it all first. But not so much in keep vs sell - just in simply listing it - because doing so "wherever" will take the same time per item no matter what it is.

The goal is to make money. So if/once you have decided it's going you want to shift the valuable stuff first because it has best return for effort.

So make a list of everything you have for sale. We'll help giving you some prices - again there's nothing being sold or rules here broken. That will help you decide what you want to sell first. And maybe some nudges around grouping some stuff where it actually makes sense and can return as good an amount as individually but in a "lot".

IF you are going to eBay, then slide out a few key listings as slowly as possible AND include some teasers about what else you have. This creates interest and followers - you'll get questions and maybe some offers, PLUS and most importantly you will allow people to be able to bid over time - I can't count the number of times I've seen so much shit get lost to maximum potential just through all being listed at once and peopl that clearly all wanted it just going for two out of eight pieces each etc. Over 4x the time there would prob have been 4x the return from the same bidders fighting - you get the idea.

Don't burn on eBay - fire the stuff to be seen there for high fast return. Fire the medium and low return stuff (that's not in a lot) onto Discogs. It can sit there at no cost until interest picks up - and people will and do then buy multiple items on a buy now basis. It takes longer - but you need next to no extra info than the Discog entry - people will ask their qns if they are interested - and you can spend your time replying to those likely to be buyers rather than wasting the same time having no idea at all with eBay.

Nice find! So is the CD from 97 and the artwork from 2005? I noticed it says "Fuji Rock Festival 05"

Nope I'm blind - and wrong. It's a totally 2005 release - JPN promo for the June 2005 drop of In Your Honor. "New Album Coming on June 15th".

I was looking at the pint glasses on the Foo store and I remembered "oh yeah, I never did see the alleged RFK July 4th glass". On July 3, 2015 I went to the DC pop up store and didn't see this glass. I did see the 20th Anniversary glass but not the specific RFK glass that was advertised. I have never seen this glass on Ebay or the Foo store. Can one of you confirm that the RFK pint glass exists? Here is the ad with the RFK glass in the bottom left corner.

I was at the shop the first day it opened. Probably one of the first 25 in and I do not recall ever seeing that glass.

Yeah, the RFK glass exists. I bought one right when the pop up shop opened. I don't know how many were made.

Edit to add I was in the first group in the door, about 6th in line.

Apparently they do exist but I've never seen one. Too bad they didn't offer it on the online store like the others.
