What's in this box?....oh!

Hi all.

I used to collect Discworld stamps for a couple of years back in 2014/15. Some here might remember me.

Anyways I've been trying to have a bit of a clear out lately since my other half and I bought a house recently and we have our first kid on the way, when I stumbled across my Collection. The box has been gathering dust and I can't really justify starting up again or keeping them so I was wondering what the reselling market is like on eBay these days. I had a quick look on there and the pickings are quite slim.

Unless you have some triangle sports spirited away, you are not going to get a lot from your collection. You might be lucky with the odd sport; maybe a couple of quid per sport.

I thought that might be the case. I'll keep hold of them for now then.

Looking up stamps and being back on the forum has really set my magpie brain whirring again.

Some things will fetch quite a good sum, like the Assassins covers AKA zombie envelopes or any from the Sunshine Sanctuary series. The Eaten by snails series also attract a fair amount of interest... In fact any really early covers will be snapped up. As will anything that was an early gift from Uncle Bernard, like sheets that were never available for purchase. Year 1 Hogswatch sheets also fetch very good money. Another worthwhile ploy is to scan the trading lists and offer items to people who have them listed as "Wants". Best of luck!
