    that I need to 'lighten my load' and get rid
    of some of the junk I've been collecting.
    Specifically.... 45 graf mags including some rare ones.

    Should I put them on ebay and let some suckers bid for them,
    or find someone who's actually deserving of them who
    will treasure them and drool over them like I did.

    just curious....
    oh.. has anyone done an ebay auction with a reserve?






    Close this if you think it falls under the 'no selling shit' rule, but that's not my intention.

    funny dunny deto.


    there's just way too many to list of the top of my head.
    as far as rare shits go..... I hear 12oz # 4 is hard to get a hold of.

    what I'm thinking, just add up the 'sticker price' for all of them
    and make that my reserve for an ebay auction.
    now... does anyone have any experience selling shit on the 'bay?

    the real question:

    should I sell them to some rich sucker on ebay
    or should I try to find a good home for them?

    Man, I used to have hundreds of graff mags, but now I only have, like, five. Fuckin' pigs.

    If you have any Quality of Lifes, or anything with nyc classic trains, I'll probably grab them. Or any 12ozes, minus the Os Gemeos one, too. Ummm...maybe even a Backjumps, or two.

    Oh, if you have any of the On The Run books, particularly Jepsey or Seen, I'll get those, too.

    I'm sure people on here would be interested, plus you'd be able to see who you're selling them to.

    Give us a ballpark figure......

    also, I'd be interested in some old While You Were Sleepings (the ones with old Baltimore stuff), or WYWS Ghetto Blaster, if they ever came out with any issues besides the one I ahve.
     
  10. You got that right turd, kilo has the common sense, maturity, intelligence, to word his stuff and come correct. If this was your thread it would be like:

    I don't see how you can go wrong with eBay. Who says they won't find a good home there? Chances are the people bidding for them writes. And if they're a toy, oh well everyone started off toy and you might be doin them a favor by opening their world up a little more. I don't know what this "rich sucker" and "undeserving" is all about. I doubt Donald Trump and Paris Hilton are going to be bidding for it.

    the Bates On The Run is in there.

    Here's the thing... I dont want to split them up.
    I dont want to sell singles, I want to move the whole lot.
    It's not a good 'collection' or anything, but it's a fair bit of content that someone would love to have.


    that's the ebay angle... no splitting it up.

    Word, Ghetto Blaster was one of my favorite issues. I figured since WYWS is basically no longer a graff mag, their "extention" magazine that was solely graff would make up for it. But what happened? They came out with like one issue. I'm betting you're talking about the one that was mostly green on the front and had a lot of MSK graff on the cover.
     
  14. And after all that jazz, seriously...find a young writer you think is passionate about graffiti and give them away like that. Best solution.

    If this thread starts to contain prices or evolves into a trade, its getting closed...just so deto feels better.

    you have a point there TheoHux.

    Ideally, they would go to some 12 year old kid who's totally in love with the shit with an untainted passion that most of us haven't had for years. That's the thing right there... it could inspire the next ****** (nig name writer).

    ...or it could end up in japan.
