I have several VERY desirable gmail addresses. Is there any way to sell/trade them for anything of value?

I received a gmail invite at the very beginning of the "public" service. I picked several very desirable usernames and kept inviting myself to open new accounts. I ended up with about 15-20 new accounts with usernames that would be useful to many people. I haven't used any of these for the past 8 years or so. I log in occasionally to keep them active.
I have no need for these accounts and would like to sell them or trade them for something of value. I assume (?) selling is against the terms of service, but maybe trading would be okay?
The usernames would be things like: president@gmail or doctor@gmail or emailme@gmail or thenews@gmail (none of these are mine but similar to the desirability I am talking about)
Question: What is the best way to sell/trade these accounts without running afoul of the Google rules?
