Anything Star Wars can be considered a Star Wars collectible. This is a testament to how desirable the Star Wars brand is and can translate into real value for the owner of these collectibles. And when it comes time to sell, whether it was to free up space or to profit from a smart investment, big decisions need to be made.
Deciding where to sell any collectible, not just Star Wars collectibles, is a big decision. How much time do you want to spend prepping and selling your collectibles? How quickly do you want to sell your collectibles? How much money are you expecting to get for your collectibles? All these factors need to be considered, as they will determine the best place for you to sell your collectibles, specifically if you should sell online or locally.

You Could Sell On eBay
When people think about selling their collectibles, they usually think about selling on eBay first. However there are certain pro’s and con’s you should consider before selling on eBay. The best part about selling on eBay is having access to a wide array of potential buyers, increasing your chance of getting your information in front of someone willing to pay a very high amount.
However, in reality it rarely works out perfectly like this since there are a lot of moving variables. What time is the best time to post? How long should you keep your auction open? Should you set a reserve price? Should you set a buy-it-now price? How many pictures should you take? What sort of details should you include? What is the correct terminology? Even if you’re an experienced eBay seller and you get all these things right, the eBay fees could eat into your profits, and it takes a LOT of work to get a proper auction up, running, and sold at a high price, from taking pictures, gathering all the information and answering questions. And even with all that hard work, nothing is guaranteed.
You Could Sell To A Local Store
Many comic book stores, thrift stores, pawn shops and other local establishments would be able and willing to purchase your comic books from you, for cash, on the spot. This is nice for people who don’t want to fuss with a long, elaborate, time-intensive selling process and are alright with not getting absolute top dollar for their collectibles.
You Could Sell To Another Collector Directly
Collecting is one of those hobbies that unites people together because it’s a fun activity that gets even more fun once you know the in’s and out’s of the business. Chances are, you could search for collectibles-related meetups or Star Wars-related meetups on Meetup.com, where you may find a willing buyer for your Star Wars collectible you’re trying to sell. You could probably also find a fellow collector at any related expo or event as well!
