Advice on selling off a Breyer horse collection?

Just curious if anyone has any advice on selling off a childhood Breyer horse collection? I have probably between 150-200 produced between 1980 and the mid-1990s. My parents have been graciously storing these at their house all these years, and we've always joked that we would "thin the herd" when I was serious about purchasing a real horse

I don't know if people even buy these anymore, but I see them occasionally in antique shops, typically around $20 each. I have lots of hard-to-find and "limited edition" models, so I'm not sure if it is easiest to try to sell them individually, or just pull the whole group up for a set price. Does anyone have advice about 1) where to list/advertise (I would love to do this all online) and 2) a resource for realistic current pricing.

I don't have unrealistic expectations of making a fortune here, I would just like to help my parents clean out the guest room and put a little money away for the horse hunt.

eBay...or try the Model Horse Sales Pages (you can find it by googling MH$P)...I know they used to have a section on there for OF Breyers.

Thanks for the suggestions-seems like EBay it will be.

It's a far cry from when I was young and obtaining these little guys, when you read an ad in Horse Illustrated, sent away a self-addressed stamped envelope, and waited patiently for the seller to send you a photocopied list of (bad) pictures of what they were selling.
