Deciding how to sell your collectibles can be a daunting task. Should you sell online? To a friend? To a pawn shop?

We’ve got you covered! This is our ultimate guide on how to sell your collectibles depending on what matters to you most.

If you want to sell your collectibles fast

Sometimes speed is everything. You don’t want to deal with filling out all sorts of forms and information. You don’t want to spend time answering questions. You don’t want to wait for a buyer. You just want to sell your collectibles now.

When you want to sell your collectibles fast, you have two good options:

Local pawn shop
No matter where you are, there’s probably a pawn shop within driving distance to you. If you want a fast transaction, there’s nothing faster than dealing with a pawn shop. You walk in, negotiate and agree on a selling price, exchange your collectibles for cash and walk out. Now obviously this will not yield the highest selling price for you compared to other methods, but that’s the price you’re paying for the convenience of having a low-maintenance and fast transaction.

Local collectibles store
Selling your collectibles to a local collectibles store can be as fast and as easy of a transaction as you’d experience with a pawn shop. Unfortunately, collectible stores are a little fewer and far between than pawn shops, so you may not be lucky enough to have one close by. But if you are, you could probably fetch more money selling collectibles to a collectibles store than to a pawn shop. This is because the customers that a collectibles shop will attract will be much more interested in your stuff than the customers of a pawn shop, and would therefore sell for more money, so the store would be willing to pay more for it.

If you want to sell your collectibles for cash

If you want to sell your collectibles for cash and are ok with putting in a lot of effort to get them sold, then you should consider selling them online. But beware– it takes a LOT of work and a LOT of time.

By selling online, you’re opening up sales to the widest audience possible, which usually leads to a selling price close to book value. However it takes a LOT of time and energy to run a successful online sale, and even if all goes right there’s still a lot of risk and luck involved.

If you want to sell your collectibles for top-dollar

  1. I am a Realtor, trying to help people sell brothers collectibles, so house gets empty as I need to sell it. Brother is in assisted living. So much there. Don’t know who to trust to refer them to. I’ve heard SO MUCH bad about sales and auctions of stuff left for relatives to sell. They know nothing about value and need to trust somebody to get the best value for their brother.

  3. I have collected Xena & Hercules memorabilia since 1996. This 20-year collection includes show props, swords, original comic art pages for Topps Comics (some signed by the artist), autographed photos, scripts, and numbered plaques. So much more, many one-of-a-kind items. The collection filled a 12×15 foot room and is now in climated-controlled storage, since I moved to a smaller house.
    I am asking $25,000 for the entire collection.
