"that's a smith and wesson, and you've had your six"

So I am doing a garage sale this month, and selling a boat load of stuff that just sits on the shelf. That includes a couple hundred DVD's

My question is, what is the best way to sell them. If I do do craigslist, what do you think would be a fair price per DVD...maybe $2-3?

Anyone have any luck selling theirs?

How about a metric ton of Magic the Gathering cards?

It depends - I've paid as much as $10 for certain titles in the past, and turned my nose up at $3 for others...

do you want to make money, or do you want to get rid of them?

if its the latter - $1 per DVD.

so if you have a box set with 3 dvds in there = $3

Well I figure, if they make the garage sale, they will probably go for a buck, but I think on Craigslist, I might be able to sell a bunch of them for more.

it really depends on the title.

for example - Brazil Criterion Collection.
def worth more than $1 per disc

its gets confusing pricing DVDs sometimes because of bluray, but you also have to take into account the bonus features on the disc. if they cant be found anywhere else, you might want to charge more.

a collector or movie buff isnt going to want a plain dvd, if there's a bluray version.

I also have interest in your metric ton, which I would add to my metric ton, in order that I would then have two metric tons that I would wistfully think about now and then and would someday sort into sets and boxes with the intent of some further day in the indefinite future using to play a game, but would not.

Sounds like you could do an auction here...

ninja I've used eBay, but only the super rare or eclectic ever seem to sell (samurai flicks, Criterion etc.) I've sold "lots" of several DVDs before too. Large collections 100+ seem to do pretty well.
Our local re-seller places (used "record" stores) will take 'em but pay little. My best advice is group a bunch in a lot and maybe offer 'em on a Math Trade list--anybody remember those? ninja

There's a math trade going on now that you could put them up in.

Is there a US equivalent of MusicMagpie or CEX where they will buy your DVDs at a fixed price? You basically put the titles or barcode number into their website, and they tell you how much they're willing to pay. You then print off a label and post the whole lot to them and they credit yout bank account when its all verified. CEX even pay the postage.

But the point is that you **COULD** man. Think of it... TWO METRIC TONS (TONNES?) of Magic cards.

How could you not jump on that?

Heck, I'll offer 1 shiny geek penny and and two average geek pennies on YOUR BEHALF!
