Subject: Selling Cards   PostPosted: Tue Oct 16, 2012 2:40 pm Reply with quote

I have so many cards, and only a few that I actually need, so I would like to sell my cards.

How do people go about valuing their cards, especially for older card games that are no longer purchasable? What tips does anyone have for valuations, just in case someone asks?

go to internet and find a site with value for each of your game...
but sometimes, sites are very high... or very low Smile

try to find active people for a collection, perhaps he will be OK to help you... for free Smile

Thanks!

It's hard to find online sites, since the game is so old. But I will look.

Ebay is a strange place, and depends on the seller I think. Some people think their cards are worth a lot, some people think they are not. And it's just a case of finding like minded buyers on there I think.

I disagree about ebay. Ebay gives you a good idea about what people are actually willing to pay for a card (if you look at the lowest buy it now prices and the price that auctions of a particular card tend to end at). It doesn't make much sense for someone to buy cards from you if they can get the same cards cheaper somewhere else (ebay or any other place where cards are sold).

I think you are right in that ebay is a good base. The thing with ebay is you can usually at least find the older card games, if nothing else. But I think the Buy It Nows only show what the buyers are prepared to sell for, rather than buyers. Only by looking at completed listings can you see what people actually paid.

But you do make a lot of sense about using to see what others are selling for in order to quote a lower price. It's what to do when your cards are no where to be found! Laughing
