TOPIC: Time to sell off my Token Collection ...Advice Please

Time to sell off my Token Collection ...Advice Please 2 weeks 1 day ago #1

I have around probably 300 tokens or more..Many powerful purples that I have collected over the years.
My question is should I just sell the whole collection off in bulk? It seems that selling them one at a time
would require me to go out to the post office too many times. Trying to reduce exposure but wanting to
get something for all the money I put out on this. Just need more important things right now. Does anyone have
and pros or cons to show to help me decide how to move these quic to turn them back into cash without a bunch of trips out?.

Here are two good "one trip" options:

1. Bulk list everything for sale on Ebay.

Pros: Fastest. One trip. Very convenient.

Cons: Will need to be heavily discounted to sell in bulk.

2. Send your tokens to Trent or Kirk on consignment.

Pros: One trip. You set the prices.

Cons: Paying consignment fee. Slower than e-bay sales.

You will definitely make more money selling the tokens individually, versus in bulk, but it's time consuming and does take a lot of trips.

Thank you for the info Daniel. It seemed that selling individually would come out almost the same as bulk because of all the trips to the post office. Price of gas..cost of shipping..etc... time..
I am not all that close to the post office either..so there is that. The mailman will pick up what I want to send but it is snail mail..Who knows how long it would take to get the entire collection
sold.

Ebay makes me nervous for some reason selling bulk..I always think I am not going to do something right and some Ebay con artist pro will end up with my collection (and investment ) for free. I am open to it but I must research it. I am new to this major selling thing. I have just been a consumer up to this point really. I sold some old skateboards on Ebay before but over three hundred token sales would take some major planning...Primarily 300 good pics and such. Good grief... lol.

But anyway..Thank you again for the advice. I will look into your consignment advice too further.

You could also try just typing out the names and quantities in a thread saying you want to sell in bulk. You wouldn’t have to have any photos.

Arthur, are you quitting True Dungeon, or just selling off extra tokens? If it's due to coronavirus, hopefully we'll have plenty of conventions in the future where that isn't a risk. :)

Well, I guess I want to sell it all off while it is still worth something.. If things continue as they are in a few weeks it all may not be worth much...much like my Beanie Baby collection..

Looking to invest in something more real, or something practical, and usable. Tokens are basically re designed poker chips. Even the real Vegas poker chips are having a bad time as the casinos in Vegas are said to be taking a pretty hard hit with all of this. With the announcement of no large groups in confined enclosed spaces. Las Vegas is seeing a significant drop in attendance, and betting. No sports means no sports betting... I really did not want to bring up the C word since I was the first (unknowingly) to talk about the virus on these forums. Once things calm down, and there is solid reassurance that there is no threat to the public, then I can see getting back into it... But now investing in toilet paper seems to be the wise buy right now... Since you can at least wipe your hind end with it..I guess you could wipe with a TD token but it most likely wont be as enjoyable. This all just sucks..But it is a wake up call of sorts of what is and is not important.

Trying to sell in bulk in either method will move tokens but probably not net you the best ROI. It seems that you seek security and integrity above all. That being the case I would suggest listing the tokens first here on the forums. With the community in place at least there is a self-policing and integrity present. Ebay is what it is. Either way, you are making a choice to sell your collection and need to know there are risks with each.

Best of luck to you in your future endeavors.

Reasons for selling aside... I have a couple thoughts on how you could do this.

Putting the 300 URs in one bulk purchase would likely need to be heavily marked down to find a buyer on Ebay. Most players are not going to have use for a large chunk of those tokens, and would probably rather seek out what they need individually. What you could do instead is put them into collections of maybe 15 or 30. Another seller from the forums did this and those packages looked really good. This would be much easier than keeping track of 200+ orders.

You could also contact the bigger token resellers to see if they would cut a deal with you. I can’t speak for them, but they would likely be more interested in buying the lot.

It is not 300 UR based on the first post. It is 300 tokens "many" UR’s. Many could be 6 could be 100 no way to know.
