Most of the Mxxx cards you mentioned are fairly generic.  The Axxx 
and Wxxx stuff looks more interesting.  None of it is anything 
I particularly need (looks like the non-generic stuff is more -11 
than -8).

I suspect you could get a few dollars each for them one at a 
time on ePay, or rather less as a lot.  My own ePay rule of 
thumb is about $5 each for an Mxxx flip-chip module spare.  If 
it is something I specifically need, I'll pay more.  Gxxx and 
other modules are often specific to a particular device, so I 
am willing to pay more (assuming it's a device relevant to my 

This works out well because there is usually someone else willing 
to pay a little more, and I already have a fair number of spares :-).
