    I am interested in the community's thoughts on the value of a complete 81 name set of reindeer that is matched with a complete 81 name set of sleighs. I can't seem to decide whether I am holding onto a possibly unique thing, or a 162 lockdown waste.I realize in the grand scheme of all things "rare" , this wouldn't be decidedly upper-end ,but it did take 6 years to complete,with 90% of it being built when the sleighs and reindeers were far more readily available then now.As time passes on, are these a keeper ?
    Thanks for the imput guys

    I would say Yes. Just because of so many being deleted from turn in, who knows how many are left, maybe a rarer name is no longer available. value wise, I couldnt even begin to say.

    Klimo, I say, use a flat 18x18 and display them all out matching their names. Take a screenshot and enter the Holiday contest and win one of Mesanna's prized reindeer. Then I'll give you 500 mil for that reindeer. This will indirectly measure the value of your collection :)

    I can begin to name a price on them... 0
    Sorry but unless some insane collector wants them even then they will fetch close to nothing. I've prob thrown a few full sets away for points o_O
