Are you about to sell your collectibles? No matter where you’re selling them, you want to have some sort of second opinion process to make sure you’re getting the best price and the best terms possible. This can be as simple as doing your own quick research, or as complex as bringing it in for multiple official appraisals with different reliable organizations. And if you’re dealing with very valuable collectibles, this process becomes even more important.

Why Should You Get A Second Opinion?
It’s very difficult to put a value on a collectible – it even gives experts a tough time. This is because at the end of the day, collectibles don’t have intrinsic value and are simply worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. Therefore there are seemingly infinite variables that play a role in any collectible’s value at any given time. By getting multiple opinions on what a collectible is worth, you can average out between multiple estimates and you also reduce the chances of major errors in appraisal value.
How To Get A Second Opinion?
There are multiple ways to get second opinions, some of them are even free. One simple way is to go to a local pawn shop and see how much they’re willing to pay you for it. For this, you must understand that they will be offering you less than what the market value of the collectible is because they need to turn around and sell it for a profit, and that selling price will be much closer to the market value of the collectible. You can also bring it to a collectibles store and go through the same process. Aside from soliciting offers, you can also seek out experts for an appraisal – usually these are free but sometimes they do cost money. Another way is to simply use eBay’s Advanced Search feature and look for completed auctions for your exact items and see how much it sold for. All of these methods have their pros and cons, so it’s best to combine them for the best, most accurate and trustworthy results.
