  • Pricing Pins

    I have a rather large collection of Nightmare Before Christmas pins that I'm looking to sell, but I have no idea what the pins are worth. Does anyone know of a site I can go to so I can see what a fair market value for them is? Thanks.

    Re: Pricing Pins

    Although not completely accurate, if you search eBay for the pins you will get an idea as to what others are trying to sell the same pin for. You should really only consider auctions with bids that are close to ending. What I do is "watch" a couple auctions so that I can see the ending price. This will work if several of the pins are available. However, for very rare pins there might not be any listed, or only listings with high prices that have been sitting for along time.
    Also, the price stuff sells for goes through cycles over time, so this process is only an estimate.

    Remember the first rule of collectibles - an item is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

      You can also search on eBay for ended auctions and see what the average going price for specific pins is. But there can be a wide variance. I've seen the same exact pin go for large differences in price.

        Problem is a lot of these pins are 5 years old or older, and there are a lot of LE's and promotional pins that I haven't seen on ebay before. I'll check it out though.

          I would then decide what you want for it, and try to sell it for that or just under that and see what happens.
          Good morning, son
          In twenty years from now
          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
          And I can tell you 'bout today
          And how I picked you up and everything changed
          It was pain
          Sunny days and rain
          I knew you'd feel the same things...

            It has been my experience one is going to find the majority of one's LE and Specials are not worth what one paid for them retail. Of 100pins, MAYBE 10% will realize appreciation upon sale.

            Ebay is a superb place to unload unwanted pins. Start your listings at $.99ea w/ reasonable ($2.00shipping) and you're sure to make money. Not as much as you spent on them originally, but better than collecting dust in a closet somewhere, eh?
            Just countin' the days til the next visit!
