letting go of stored away items

Post by poncho on Thu Jan 25, 2018 5:26 pm

ive a hundred or so cardbacks maybe.

there in a folder i dont look at them anymore not for a few years

and i know they would be better of with a avid cardback collector

ive toyed with idea of letting them go the in the past couple of years but i find it hard. there just sat there gathering dust.....

I know what you are saying mate it's hard to let collected pieces go, but if you don't look at them and are more interested in other parts of the hobby selling to another collector could fund some nice new vintage cheers
We have some great card collectors here at a Tantive Very Happy

Be sure to document any we need for the Tantive library before you do mate What a Face

I know how you feel Chris. I've got a huge amount of modern SW which I haven't looked at for years, but so far I've not been able to bring myself to thin them out. As Andy said, it would be great if your cardbacks could be documented for the library. Very Happy

its always hard to let go of anything related to the hobby or otherwise that's been collected . many of my collections just sit there while star wars is one that takes up no room (basically for loose collectors .
if you enjoy em keep em if not use the money to fuel your collection in the right direction .

I think we all know that world Chris, it's one of those I might want to start a focus with them one day. I felt the same with mine they were in a box for the longest time until I just bit the bullet and sold them as one lot. And like Andy said you can use the funds to get things you need.
