Just someone being a show off.

if, and it's a very big IF, I lived in Torino I'd be contacting the seller, knock on his door and just marvell at his collection. Have a good old chinwag and just enjoy talking/collecting subbuteo. There aren't too many people with these collections knocking around now.

Wow nice collection!!! It will be one to keep an eye on in 9 days n counting. Any serious estimations gentlemen of knowledge? I'd have a guess its worth at LEAST 13,500 ish thats not knowing what teams are in the collection so I averaged out team prices for Hws and Lws etc.

I like your thinking, win his confidence over first, then find out if he's going away on holiday anytime soon, has any alarms in the house, or a ferocious dog that guards his collection......just casual chit chat really! :rolleyes:

I think this highlights an issue for all collectors with big collections. How do you value your collection and how do you realize it's value should you come to sell.

I keep a spreadsheet detailing every team in my collection and how much I paid for it. So I know what my total outlay has been. I also try and track what each team has sold for on eBay. I try and collect teams in excellent to mint condition so if I were to put my teams on eBay individually I might get the higher end prices. So I have an idea what it's maximum value is likely to be.

But there's the rub. Could I really be bothered to list all my 350+ teams individually, probably not. And if I did they probably wouldn't all sell at maximum prices.

So the alternative would be to sell them as a complete collection. But who would buy. It would be nice to think they would go to another collector but in reality that isn't going to happen. No one is going to have a few grand spare and think "I know I will buy a complete subbuteo collection". It just isn't going to happen.

So your left with selling to a dealer. And of course they will want to,sell e items on and want to make a profit. So they are going to offer you a lot less for your collection than probably what you paid for it.

I don't intend to ever sell my collection, I don't see it as an "investment", I collect because I love Subbuteo. So realizing a high value is not important to me. I will just keep collecting. My son is interested in the collection ( it did start out as his collection) so maybe he will keep it for many years after I've shuffled of my mortal coil.
