Due to tough economic times I am looking to get rid of some of rare Jars of Clay cds.  I kind of have an idea on what some are worth, but I am looking for an expert opinion, I have quite a few.  Here is what I have...

Jars of Gems (sealed)
1995 and 1997 Drummer Boy (both sealed)
Platinum # 741 (opened but cd in good condition)
Stringtown (sealed)
Front Yard Luge (sealed)
Crazy Times Maxi Single (sealed)
Seatbelt Tuba (sealed)
White Elephant Sessions (sealed)
This Road Single (sealed)

I have been collecting these for years and purchased them all on ebay years ago, I no longer have an ebay account.  Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

Such a nice collection, I feel sorry to see you have to let it go =/

I am thinking of maybe adding one Platinum to my collection =/ it is one cd I never cared for too much, but now I feel like having one =/

I've been following ebay closely for over a year, here is a rough estimate of what they would sell for:

Jars of Gems (sealed) $25 - $35
1995 and 1997 Drummer Boy (both sealed) $5 - $10
Platinum # 741 (opened but cd in good condition) $10 - $15
Stringtown (sealed) $15 - $20
Front Yard Luge (sealed) $65 - $85
Crazy Times Maxi Single (sealed) $5 - $10
Seatbelt Tuba (sealed) $10 - $15
White Elephant Sessions (sealed) $10 - $20
This Road Single (sealed) $5 - $15

You are better off advertising them here and hoping for someone to give you better value.

I have everything that you list (unless the "This Road" single is the City on a Hill version), otherwise I would pay you top dollar for what I need.

Can someone tell me what an original Frail is going for these days?  Yes, it is original, not a fake - I went to GC with the guys (well, with the original 4) and was at the CD release party.  It's autographed by all 4 (original Matt) and in good condition.  We're raising money for adoption and while I hate to let it go, our son is more important than being sentimental over the CD.  Thanks for any help!

This one is tough...

All of the Frail CDs sold through ebay last year were fake and they went for about $100. With that said, I paid about $150 for an authentic CD through a private sale. 

So if you were going to sell on ebay, then expect between $75 - $125, or if you can find a private buyer then $150 - $200 seems about right.

Thanks so much!  I was hoping for more, but I guess I missed the heyday.
