Admins, please feel free to move this to the appropriate thread, I wasn't sure where I should post it.

The wife is forcing a renovation of the basement and I had to choose between Kubricks, Lego and my book collection.  Unfortunately the book collection lost.  Do any of you know what the appetite is for pre-Disney era books on the secondary market (i.e., not marked as "Legends")?  Trying to determine if it makes more sense to try and sell these or just donate to a local book store in my area.  Thanks in advance for any advice given.

I know about five years ago I was picking up some of the books aimed at 10 year olds - Young Jedi series.  I don't know if these were Legends or not.  They were all going for roughly face value on eBay, so not a ton of money, but you might get some cash back for your trouble if you sell them.

Thanks for the reply Dave.  I've been looking also and there are one-off editions that could score more than face value as they are limited run hard covers, but like you said, most are face value or less depending on the series.

I may post them on the Classifieds first to see if there is any interest before trying eBay, but I ultimately think these will end up at the used book store in the end.

If I were you, I would start at the used bookstore just from looking at the ebay threads here it seems to be a hell of a hassle for sellers.
This is the way.


I have spoken.

Yeah, outside of rarer editions I don't think they are worth much.  I would bring whatever you have to half price books and see what they offer.  I think I ended up just donating mine years ago.

Itís free comic book day today.  I guess COVID threw off the normal schedule. Two high republic comics are in the mix.
