A little appraisal help?


I have a pile of Lego that I haven't used in a few years, and I'm not likely to use. I'm wondering what it's worth. I know I have some not-so-common sets. I also know that to maximize the price I could get for this stuff I'd either have to sort it by set (it's all mixed up) or sort by brick type/color/etc. I'd prefer to NOT sell by the pound.

Below is my list of sets that I have instructions for. Taken in the aggregate, I'm better than 99% complete, but I can't guarantee I haven't lost some of the extra parts or very small parts over the years. The brick is in excellent condition, from a non-smoking house. Quite a lot of this was bought as an adult, but the stuff I've had since I was a kid is in great shape too. I wasn't the kid that was hard on equipment growing up. He lived down the street and was the kid I gave all my original kenner star wars action figures and vehicles to. He broke them all within 9 months, and that stuff is extra hard to find now. You can't win them all.

Anyhoo, I'd be interested in what folks believe this would be worth as a take-it-all deal, and what it'd be worth by set. I have instructions, but no boxes.

I'd try searching e-bay and Bricklink to see what sets are going for. Some of what you've got is old, rare, and would likely fetch high prices if complete (especially considering you have instructions). For example:

All of these would fetch high prices. I'd guess the Super Car sets would each fetch close to $100 (if complete).

Model Team sets would likely fetch high prices as well. I fondly remember

5590 and 5591, but owned neither.

You can't go wrong with classic space. I'm guessing these would fetch high prices as well, especially 442 and 889 since they are a couple of the first Classic Space sets. I had 889, 928, and some others, but never 442. Any set with classic space minifigs in good shape will sell well.

I'm not sure what the other sets would fetch, but I'm sure they'd sell.

First thing to do is to build each and every set to make sure the pieces are there. The downside is that by the time you're done doing this, you may find that you still like to build with Lego. ;-)
