Your texting skills need some work..

Generally speaking, old skis have zero value unless they are back from the pre-colorful top sheet (that is, the ski is ALL wood) era. There might be limited interest in some skis by some collectors of old skis, but most of the time not enough to cover shipping. Most old skis are just used for making fences, chairs, etc. and given away. So, the second pair, if wood, may have value as a decor piece on the wall. But without pics, tough to say.

You know you're an old fart when you go into a bar in ski country and the wall hangers are the same as skis that you once owned. Makes you feel old but good for reminiscing.

 

Skis from the 20s and 30s are worth about $100 in my neck of the woods. Others $0 to ?

Most bizarre thread title ever. Post rivals Josh's typing.
Post a photo in the More Retro Memories thread.
They're probably worth less than $25.

1 x 4 inch x 8 ft Select Pine - about $9.50 at Home Depot
So your skis are maybe $7 x 2 or less use than 14$ worth of pine.
Or....?
