Vintage SW Price Guide

Post by Vitruvius on Sat Jan 09, 2016 4:36 pm

Hello,

I've been collecting for years and always noticed that there isn't a very reliable price guide out there. I realize a project like that would be a lot of work, and over time I've created a simple guide as a reference for myself. I realize there have been a few that can be found on Amazon but I have yet to find one that covers real auction prices and AFA graded pieces as well for all figures.

I'm wondering if anyone has stumbled upon a reliable price guide that includes loose and AFA graded? If one does not exist, would other members enjoy using such a guide?

I appreciate any help. Smile

The market is in such a big upswing right now. I'm not sure how to keep track of the pricing? I think most just use ebay or FB as a guide for pricing.

If anyone finds something, it would be interesting to see. Very Happy

Yes I tend to use the sold listings in the advanced eBay search engine, then estimate an average sale price.
As Clint said, prices are all over the place, but seem to be at an all time high at the moment.
So to create a guide that stayed relevant would be difficult.
At the end of the day, an item is only worth whatever the maximum is that you are willing to pay for it.
Unfortunately some folk have very deep pockets.

Thanks for the response guys. I've spent quite a bit of time compiling prices and have been updating them. It's a lot of work but it's great to have a one stop reference if you want to know the value of a figure and don't want to waste time pouring over EBay sold items or other sources.

Another thing I do is note how often certain figures or vehicles get sold on the market to establish rarity. It's been a lot of fun so far.
