Default Young Guns Lot! What to do???

I sell a little bit of hockey when I get them in collections, but I picked up a larger lot of only hockey yesterday. I know now is a bad time to resell hockey, but I couldn't pass up the price of the lot. There are a lot of Young Guns, Including the bigger names from the past few years. I usually just list them on ebay & don't care what they sell for as I usually have very little into them. There are probably about 25 cards. My question is 1) should I sell them as a lot? 2) sell them individually? 3) Hold them and wait until the lock-out is over? Thanks for any help or opinions.

I'd sell the big names individually, and some of the lower end ones in a group.

Definitely wait for hockey to start heating up again, no sense in selling them now.

sell the good players by themselves,then sell the rest as lots.Sell the lots by years,meaning keep the same year YG together.There's still some hope there might be some sort of season.If you wait till there's no season,you'll have to sit on them for one year.I know you don't want to do that.Hope this helps.

There might be a current market for players doing well in the KHL. Malkin (2006-07), for example.

Throw singles of the bigger name guys up on eBay for a good BIN. Save the lots of lesser guys for the NHL to start up again.

If you can sell them now and make money then I would do that. Then you can use that money to buy more instead of just holding the cards waiting.

Also, if you are selling the YG in a lot I would be interested depending on what players they were.
