    I found a long thought lost box of the first 60 or so Star Trek novels from pocket books and S&S. They are in very good condition. I simply don’t have the room for them. In your all’s opinions what would be a fair asking price . I would probably sell them in like 5 to 10 a piece as shipping the whole box would be big bucks

    Unfortunately, there are literally millions of Trek books out there, so they don’t command much on the aftermarket, with a single exception: if you have the first printing of Killing Time in unread condition, you might get $30 for it. For the rest, two bucks a pop is probably the best you can get.

    ETA: I’m assuming they’re the US editions. If they’re Canadian or UK, the value will vary.

    I do some minor bulk buying and even first editions from the original series are 50 cents to a buck each.

    If you have a Half Price Books in your area, they would give you an offer for the whole lot, or you could do it over several visits. You might not get the best price, but it would probably give you something and take them off your hands.
