Fellow fools,
I have approx 3000 cards starting from 3rd edition and going till Visions, or there abouts. As I have 2 kids, reserve drill, and night classes, I haven't played in a few years. They are taking up a lot of space in my garage (okay, one small box) and I'm interested in selling them off. Do you have any suggestions on how to get the most money for them? Obviously I don't hold out much hope of getting any money for land and the five million healing savs, but what about the cards that have some value?
-Should I try a mass selling on Ebay, go to the local stores, or a combo of that?
-How organized do I need to be? Do I need to inventory every card and it's condition? I think the most valuable cards I have are only $20-25 or so, but I haven't checked in a while.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have never used Ebay before so I'm a little intimidated by that, but if something like that is the most profitable way to go then so be it.


Thanks
-spookysquid

P.S. I do miss playing and selling these is going to suck, but my babies have to go to college.
