Selling a Franklin Mint Egyptian Cats Collection

I have a Franklin Mint Egyptian Cats collection with mirrored curio cabinets, new and still in original boxes, and am considering selling them. We have only taken a few pieces out of the boxes to see what they were before replacing them. I believe it is the entire set, but wonder what you would suggest about checking to make sure. Is it necessary, or a bad idea, to unwrap and photograph each individual piece? I know it is more than cats; I have seen a beautiful vase which must also be part of the collection. Any advice would be welcome. eBay has individual pieces, and most are used, not new.

These seem to be valued pretty highly on the internet. Of course whether you can get a good price on them depends on the demand. There is something to be said for selling an entire collection, though of course doing that means that you will get a lesser price per item, but a bigger paycheck all at once.

As far as opeining them, it is well established that items must never be opened in order to have the best monetary value. So saying, if you are extra careful and need merely to photo them, then an argument could be amde for opening them up but sealing them as good as new after.
