Prices

 

Just for GRINS I scanned the TOP listed items on Ebay. I noticed that the large majority were from the Morley-Topkis collection. Using the Daw-Zu, which I an aware of, as an example I consider the starting price way above the any previous selling price I know of. I thought these were up for auction. It looks like a fixed price sale to someone not aware of the current pricing. These will probably go unsold and all will say patches aren’t selling on E-Bay. Quite the contrary the auction should start at a price sure to draw bids and let the market place determine what the price should be. I know the Courts are involved in the sale but don’t they usually price items to sell. The only one to profit by this auction is Ebay collecting its listing fee.

Couldn’t agree more. The prices are nuts and none of these products are going to move. Full retail in this market is crazy…

I paid less than 5% his listing price on one patch and around 20% his listing price on a couple of other patches he has up for Tomo Chi-Chi a couple of years ago. He has put those same 7 patches up for the past year or so which has driven up the “perceived” price of those patches and other older Tomo flaps. Because of this, there haven’t been any older Tomo patches up since then. People in the lodge, who those patches are probably worth more to, won’t even pay those prices.

Which really stinks for the under 30 crowd of collectors out there, which I am one of.
