Having an idea of what your collectibles are worth prior to going through the selling process makes everything much easier. There are a number of ways for you to come up with a rough estimate for the value of your collectibles, but it’s more of an art than a science.
If you’re dealing with valuable collectibles, or even think you may be dealing with valuable collectibles, it’s always worthwhile to get them appraised by an expert. Luckily, that can all be done online with the team here at Neat Stuff Collectibles!

Organize And Take Inventory Of Your Collection
If you have a large collection, sorting and organizing what you own is the first step and will make everything else so much easier. After all, we can’t appraise the value of a collection if we don’t know what’s in it! This is most relevant for something like a Pokemon card collection which could number into the hundreds or thousands. So make sure you’re storing your Pokemon cards properly!
Take Pictures Of Everything, Especially Blemishes and Imperfections
Once everything is neatly organized, be sure to take pictures of everything, good and bad. Most people only take pictures that will show their collectibles in a positive light, but by leaving out any potential blemishes or imperfections, you are misleading the potential buyer and could be opening yourself up to problems down the road because those imperfections will eventually be identified. Plus those imperfections and blemishes may not even be as bad as you think, so be sure to bring them to the attention of your appraiser so they can present you with all of the facts you’ll need to make a smart decision going forward.
