Trying to get some opinions on what is the best way to sell a collection off. Not sure how thorough I want to be yet. However, I'm sitting on probably 200-300 timetables, around 70 models, and a ton of miscellaneous airline memorabilia. I'm talking anywhere from Piedmont paper cups to the MD-12 promotional photos and materials.

Ebay is the obvious initial place to post, but not sure if anyone else had better luck elsewhere. Hate to get rid of anything, but I'd rather someone else enjoy these items now instead of them sitting in storage cabinets hidden away.

Ebay is probably the easiest, though I've seen many people post here as well (with varying success). Another option would be to take it to an aviation memorabilia show and sell / trade it there (even if you don't set up a booth, I've seen many people take their own stuff in to trade for some very nice items in return).

Give us a heads up wherever you decide to sell, I'd be interested in seeing what you have!

What models do you have? And how much are you looking to sell for?

Also interested in the models if you decide to sell them!

Is it 1:200 scale?

Thanks guys. I'm working on a spreadsheet of everything I have, so once that's done I can send that over. Just toss me a message here on the forum with how to send it to you.

All the models are 1:200 plastic models except for a couple that are a little higher scale (US 733 and some A388s).

Oh, too bad they are all plastic. I only collect them in metal.
