Could I make a suggestion?  If you're looking to get the most out of these items, I think it'd be wise of you to separate the big money titles, specifically Valkyrie Profile, Suikoden II, and the Lunar boxes, and sell them individually. The likelihood of someone buying a mass of black label rarities like this is pretty high, I'd like to think, but if you cut them up, you should be looking at some nice sales.

Unfortunately, I can't really afford the ones I'm missing from my collection right now (VP and FF7 are really tempting), but I'll be sure to keep an eye out for your auction(s). Could you provide links whenever you set them up?

I agree with Sam, if you break some of it up, stuff like Suiko2 and Xenogears would go for a lot just by themselves. You can probably still get 400, maybe more, with his suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestion, Sketch. I've never sold anything on ebay before, so I'm not really sure the best way to go about this. Do you think wanting to get $400 for all of these is setting my hopes too high?

You could get more than 400, I reckon. If you're lucky, some of those rarer ones alone could go for 50-60 each. Potentially even more.

Whooooaaa..  If you haven't sold anything on Ebay before than I HIGHLY recommend against it.  Ebay is a haven of scammers these days.  No matter how many precautions you take, if someone decides to scam you, there is very little you can do while doing it on ebay/paypal.

My suggestions:
-Create an Amazon Marketplace account and sell it on there. However, I don't know the associated costs with this.
-Stick to selling on RPGFan
-Craigslist - If it's an expensive title (over $80), might wanna meet in a bank and make sure no one gives you counterfeit bills.

Amazon is probably your best bet.  And hey, lots of people on here sell on Ebay and they're just fine.  Just something to keep in mind that it's infested with thieves who know it takes very little effort to scam someone.

Have you put them on eBay yet? I think I would be interested in some of them. And as the others have said, from a sales point of view, selling them individually would be highly recommended. FFVII black label as an example alone can go for up to 70 or 80. Anyways if you want I can send you a list of games that I could be interested in if you haven't put em on eBay.

I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around scammers that can scam-BUY things. scam-SELLING I understand.

But with buying you just force them to pay before you ship and demand they use PayPal. How exactly would that fail? The worst that would happen is that they don't pay, then you re-list the auction and note that buyer never paid, leave negative feedback, etc. You can also prevent people from bidding if they have zero feedback or certain amounts of negative feedback.

Scam-buyers exist aplenty especially if you're selling something expensive. They can send fake Paypal emails and the like. You know, ones that say stuff like 'this amount$ in your account, send a tracking # of the item and the funds will be released to you.' Obviously, the real PayPal doesn't do this sort of thing. If you're smart enough you should be fine.

Well, this.  But mainly the scammers buy it, pay for it, then file a claim with paypal that they never received the item.  Paypal generally sides with the buyer and refunds the money.  Now the scammer has his money back AND your item.

You might be thinking, well there are ways around this.  Get delivery confirmation.  Get signature confirmation.  Apparently, Paypal doesn't care for this type of evidence and still sides with the buyer.
