Will your estate executor recognize the value of boxes of S&T magazines, RPG books, and old, obscure board games? If they do, will they know what vehicles should be used to liquidate the various parts of your collection?

This blog will share ideas you can use to ensure your estate gets the maximum benefit from your collection.

Just attended an estate sale (a sad case where a young family was wiped out in an auto accident) with a decent games collection. It was the first time I've attended an estate sale where management actually looked up game values on eBay. So, I'll no longer say that estate sales agents NEVER price gamer collections appropriately. Of course, prices ran from way-too-high to that's-a-steal, since eBay prices are often just asking-price snapshots, and versions and conditions aren't easy for estate sales assistants to assess.
