If it's in good shape it should sell on eBay OK. Last year I sold a 100' EWI 16x8 snake for $250 on ebay. It was on there for a few weeks before someone hit my "buy it now" price. The price included shipping but I still made around $200 after shipping and fees. The best part is, I bought the snake used in 2006 for $250. Not bad for an 12 year rental. To be fair though, it hadn't seen much use for 8-9 years and was in really good condition.

This right here.

People still buy analog snakes. I bought 2 brand new ones last year for drop snakes. Plenty of uses for them out there.

Analog snakes, much like analog mixing consoles, are now most useful if they are NOT big.  16-channels?  Still super useful.  52-channels?  Can't give it away....

Sounds about right.

I keep a bunch of 8-channel ones that get used for all sorts. I'll usually drop them down stage centre, far side of stage, and up-stage. Most of my channels go down snakes - it's only the nearest vocal, DI and cab that goes direct.

It'd be nice if there was a way to split snakes off. A 52 channel one isn't much use, but four 12+1 snakes would come in handy.

Until you learn that the CEO for Goodwill drew in $2.3 million in salary!!!!! All for selling the stuff that you gave them for free. Meanwhile, the pee-on's at the actual Goodwill stores are making chump change.  Anyway, I digress :)
Iím surprised you fell for this Internet lie Luke.  You should do a little research, get educated, and then probably edit it out of your post.  Remember kids, donít believe everything you read on the Internet.

I still have a 200' 24x8 snake that comes out every once in awhile. I feel more comfortable running out my big cable with loomed power for outdoor events or high traffic areas.

You want a sad story?  Try selling off large-format analog desks for about a nickel on the dollar.

FWIW, though, the analog snakes still rent enough.  Actually a W4 splitter is still moderately popular because of all the people who don't want to share preamp control.

Nickel ?
Wishful thinking...
A few years ago, I was offered a PM-3K/52 Tour Pack for $Cdn 1,800, DELIVERED to my shop. It was in Montreal HQ, recently brought back from Vegas. Very well maintained. Too bad my back said NO FUCKIN WAY ! 8)

Iíve got an M7 Iím trying to move. The market for last-gen digital is about as dismal.

Spoke before thinking = dumb. Sorry. (I was musing about how much the M7 could get as a tax writeoff if donated, but resale prices aren't that bad yet.)
