What's a collector to do!?! Advice wanted!

Hey guys... I know... I hardly ever do this anymore.  Not for lack of interest. Just increasingly busy watching my daughter grow up and dealing with life as a new parent.  I'd love to be able to go buy boxes and rip packs and hope for the best, but for now those days are in my rear view mirror.  I've got little ventures here and there that may potentially turn in to cards...(9-1 in fantasy this year and gunning for some money), but for now I'm trying to think of what I should do about my actual collection.

Currently my biggest interests are finishing the lineage relics and 206 booklets.  I've got a long road ahead of me for the Lineage relics, but I can knock out the 206 sooner then later with only 5 left to go.

However, I've got a huge crush on those 1971 and 1972 mini relics Topps came out with this year that are numbered to 25.  With 45 total subjects I'd like to collect all of them and pair them with the 75 mini relics from lineage in some type of ultimate display.

Which brings me to the point where I look for advice.

I've got a ton of relics and autographs.  Aside from the Lost Cards... I think i'm ready to part with all of them if it isn't one of the 3 sets listed above. 

Now some cards are much nicer then others but some of my collection is less then appealing to your average collector.

Has anyone had any success selling off there collection via grab bags?  I'm thinking bags of 10-20 nice cards with a mix of HOF's and at least an auto or relic.  Relic bags, $5 and auto bags $10.  Has this actually worked for anyone??

Now the nicer stuff I'd like to get in the hands of you guys!  The ones I know will really appreciate them. 

Does anyone have any 206, Lineage, or 71/72 mini relics they'd be interested in trading. 

Anyone out there, give me some advice.  I'll post the cards that are worth peoples time that are available for trade in a new post. 

HIT ME UP!  I'm ready to listen.

2013 Topps Gypsy Queen

Anyone trying to complete this set?  I've got a few SP cards and am willing to trade.  Hit me up.

As always I'm still working on a master set of 2011 Lineage if anyone has any mini relics and or parallel cards.  Thanks!
