I'm new here, so apologies in advance if I don't get the lingo or don't understand how things work here.
I collected GI Joe figures, vehicles, and comics in the early to mid-eighties. The collection was all stored at the parents house for about 20 years.
Now I have it again, but don't have the space for it, and I'd like to see it go to someone who will appreciate it. I'm looking to sell it all. It has been enjoyable to sort through it and remember all the good times I had with these toys. I am surprised at the condition they are in, but if you look at my current "toys" -- my musical instruments and woodworking tools -- it isn't surprising that I kept things in good condition.
I'm asking for advice here about the best way to sell the collection. It includes some figures from 1982, many more from 1983 onwards. I still have the original "Snake Eyes," pre-swivel arm! There are several vehicles, including the Killer Whale, which includes all the parts intact. (My dad hunted for it at many stores that Christmas, and I think that he found one on Christmas eve -- it was in hot demand when it came out!) The collection also includes the early "catalogues," but I'm not sure whether anyone is interested in them.
Should I post pictures here, or just a list, or what?
Thanks in advance,
Andy in Vermont

Pictures and a list would be helpful. Many people collect the paperwork as well (Catalogs, mail in forms, blueprints, etc...) So you should list them also
