Well the photo's go from 75 to 150 if you buy them at cons (without waiting in line) the communicator walkie talkies I suggest checking e-bay to see what they are going for.

In all honesty what they mean to you is most important. :logical:

There are no set prices..

You have to negotiate with a buyer for the best price.

See what Trek items sell for on E-Bay and work out a price list of your own.

are you looking to get it insured, or wondering how much you can sell it for? I recommend checking on Ebay and see what things are selling for. If you realy have a lot of stuff you want to get rid of the best thing might be to get a table at a convention. People will pay more at cons I think.

The autograph's are tough to prove are real. The Toys usually bring a good price on E-Bay

i really appreciate the information..everyone thanks. i really have no idea what to do with the stuff... dont get me wrong i love star trek.. just as much as all the other fans out there..
but the merchandise means more to me in dollar signs to help get through rough times im going through... the stuff i have came from a very dedicated fan/collector he attended many many conventions and such. then hit hard times,, and the material passed to me being the lover of the entire star trek genre i happily accepted... ?now it has been in storage for over ten years and i needd cash .. so i am ging through three rooms of storage to salvage anything with value from a diffrent life and a failed engagment to the woman i love...lol.
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? so...... i am selling each and everything I OWN for cold hard cash.. from antique furniture and knic knacs.. to star trek memorabilia.. xbox systems to a collection of dvds in the hundreds for five dollars a piece.lol... thousands of dollars gone... ? to start OVER fresh.. somwhere some how.. so if anyone has an interest this is a list of the more high end things in this genre

meantime what if anything can anyone tell me about getting photos authenticated.. the guy i got stuff from was a big time fan.. and he may have very well had these photos already authenticated. i have no idea.. and since i have yet to find any certificates or other paper work.. i wouldnt even know where to begin.. do they actually watermark the back of the photo... or stamp it with infrared ink in someway?

Sadly, I have found that selling things individually to get any kind of real value for items is a lot easier than trying to sell them all in one shot as a lot or large collection. I have been trying to sell the thousands and thousands of items that make up my entire 35+ yrs of collecting Star Trek collection (valued at over a quarter million) for even a fraction of what it's total value is for over 6 months now. Maybe once the new Star Trek collectibles book I am authoring is released next year in time for the new ST movie I might get some bigger bites on my collection. Especially since my collection is the sole content for this new book. Who knows.
I guess your ability to sell your collectibles is based on what you have (do you have items people are still actively looking for), what their condition is (loose, MIB, etc) and what you are looking to get out of them (some people think that having a bunch of loose action figures and because they are Star Trek they might get rich from selling them).
Having them well documented with nice clear bright pictures helps.
Even using eBay for an idea of what things are selling for is a hit and miss. I have seen where one week a mint unopened boxed Dinky Klingon ship will sell for $45. and then a few weeks later watch as another Dinky boxed Klingon ship in lesser condition (box not mint and opened) sells for over a $100. With eBay it also can be who is actually searching and wanting a certain item on a any given week.
Good luck.
