PCB recycle / gold recovery from old cell phone boards

Hi I have about 150 old motorola nextel IDEN phones. Most of them are the same model. I was wondering how to recover as much money as I can from them? Should I sell the phones online (on ebay maybe)? I have looked at closed listings from ebay it looks like they will bring in minimum $1 USD per phone. So I could start the auction at $150  USD. Or would it be worth it to remove some chips from the mainboard and sell the indivigual gold plated chips? Below are photos of one of the circuit boards
