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 and individually or small lots would be the way to go.

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.
