The audio types will sell quickly, but you will probably find that many of the “TV” tubes will be difficult to sell. Another outlet for equipment of this type, would be weekend “Hamfests”.

I know I've already seen a handful I'd be interested in.
Bit hard to see the numbers on some of them, but I'm sure I could find a decent handful more in that.

Looks like a nice TV repair shop tube collection.
In that there will likely be a number of desirable types.

You have a nice stash, if you have the patience to sell them on ebay, the better types will bring you a pretty nice chunk-o-change.

Otoh, you could build some stuff for yourself with some of it, depending on what tubes are there...

The old twistloc caps will be of interest to those who restore radios and musician's amps...

I'm tempted to buy up those twist lock caps and try to reform them. Can you open a few boxes and look to confirm that they are unused? By that I mean that there is no wire or solder on them and nothing has been twisted.

They certainly do look to be NOS (new old stock) but I know how common it was for folks to replace a part (or tube) and put the old part back in the box and then hang on to it. Not that I ever do that...

The capacitors are likely metal cans inside those boxes with the multiple values printed on the flaps, in one of the tube caddy shots... they are called "twist lock" because they are inserted into (usually) a phenolic insulator that is pre-punched to match the bottom, and then to hold it in place the tabs that connect to the metal can on the bottom get a 1/4 turn twist, which causes the little tines on the tabs to spread and lock the capacitor into place. Twist - lock.

yeah, well few of us out here will have the original catalogs to go back to reference in order to find out what values and voltages those are... one kinda goes by the size and the values printed on the box or if not there, then on the can itself... otoh, you don't want to open up old NOS boxes either...
