Dated dia compe brake cables, found many, what to do?

I slap fell into a supply of hundreds of dia compe black brake cables.  They were in a warehouse that sold brakes for old school "rams horn handle bar" 10-speeds from the 80's, or so the guy told me.  What on earth do I do with these.  I know people want dated cables, they have month date and year and most seem from 83-86.   They look like they were made yesterday.  Its so odd seeing something nearly 30 years old that is in such pristine condition.   He also, in the same warehouse, sold a bunch of junk carny prizes so its been climate controlled for all these years.  I put one on my GT because I couldn't believe they'd still work as good as they looked, but Ill be damn they dol

The brakes were all one end of the bike (same end) so I also have a ton of silver orphan brake levers from dia compe.

I'm not much of a seller....what do i do with these.  (sell them...I know, but one at a time, idk know what they should be worth.  Any ideas.  I'm gonna post a pic when I get home.

Sell them through here first as people always need them - then when the demand drys up sell them in bulk on the bay.

I'll take a rear 83/84 if you can be bothered to dig one out!?!lollol
