« on: April 08, 2011, 09:04:38 AM »

hi guys,
so i decided to get rid of some of my AFP related stuff, and i want to put it up on ebay or maybe see if someone on the box is interested, but i have NO idea how to price things...!
could you give me a hand?

these are the items i'm thinking of putting up for sale

WKAP/neil gaiman coffeetable book. brand new.
1 bowery ballroom NYE 2008-9 poster, designed by me, signed by AFP

i have interest in the vermillion lies/afp poster, but i have no way of helping you price stuff, especially signed.  however, i can tell you i've seen promotional and art posters go in the neighborhood of twenty-five or so dollars american, unsigned.  there might be a website on this sort of thing?  and yet more websites to convert the money they use on the first website, of course.


edit:  obviously, make your money back.  and if you didn't spend any money on it, price it as though you did and expect your money back and then some, is always my advice when selling anything.

Could you post pics of the posters/art?

In terms of pricing - checking Ebay is usually the way to go. Type the item in and search under "Completed Listings" to see the auctions that have ended.  If the price is in Green, it means that the item actually sold.  If the price is in Red, it means that the item did not sell, but that is the price the buyer was attempting to get. If you dont know how to find the completed listings section, let me know and I can help.

I just checked the WKAP book.  Only 2 completed listings.  One was a "Buy It Now" auction and sold for $35 plus $4 shipping.  If it was a "bid" auction it might have sold for less (or for more, it is hard to tell with so few data points.)  The other auction sold for $100 with free shipping BUT it was a signed copy (by Neil and Amanda)

the gig posters-- were these sold at the shows? If so, what was the price?

the murder by death and amanda palmer 7'' unfortunately is not worth much (it is worth the original retail price or maybe slightly more.)  Even though it was limited edition and Sold Out, I guess there is not much interest for it on the secondary market.  The fans who wanted it already have it?

I have no idea what is a reasonable price, but I might be interested in the WKAP book and 7", dependent on how much you want :)

as i really ( i know, it sounds lame) don't have that much time to check all old auctions on ebay and stuff, and won't be putting them online for a while, i guess that if you're interested in any of the items you can just send me an email at syl.is.antisocial@gmail.com with what you think is a reasonable price (or well, what you are willing to pay for it) and we'll see from then?
