Any Input On Selling Price

Post by abrown72 »

Afternoon All,

New member, been a lurker for a while but only registered today as I am in need of some help from fellow Commodore 64 enthusiasts. I'm at a bit of a crossroads in regards to what I want to vest time and money into for my collections and I have been debating for a while now on testing the waters about selling off my Commodore 64 Collection. I don't mean I have a lot of Commodores, I mean it is my complete mid 1980's bedroom :-)

This is what I have, and I don't know what I should ask for a selling price, online private sale prices are all over the place, and well not the same as what I have. I will list my write-up bellow, any input would be greatly appreciated. Also, just to note my physical location is about 1 1/2 hours north of Toronto Ontario, so that may effect the asking price since I am not sure how many current, or new collectors there are in the area.
