View Full Version : How much is it all worth? Decent Pumpkins collection for sale

05-08-2003, 08:18 PM
I am ready after many years of collecting and enjoying to give my Smashing Pumpkins collection a new home and was wondering if any on this list could give me any idea of what it might be worth. Most of the items have been played, but kept in great shape. Any items that I noticed that were in less than pretty darn good condition I have made a note of on the list. I do have a few more items that I have not dug out at the moment including more magazines and posters and a few other random items, and I plan on adding these items and selling it all as one lot. If it has to go, I would like it all to go at once. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me and if you all have any questions please email me back at
