I dropped off after the first 100 lots or so. Maybe I should’ve worked through the Star Wars bit and skived through the other stuff then 😂

Do you think Kenner prices are on the rise or are the increases down to lockdown?

What was the condition like on the 21 back Fett?
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

Think it was graded 80 so pretty nice. Some would say the going rate I know, but not me. lol

People r paying big money for Kenner 85 grades with clear bubbles :!: The 21 Fett price didn’t really surprise me, the card was unpunched with no price sticker and AFA 80 is a v respectable grade. Obviously it was the fees that pushed it to 7K. An 85 grade could sell for quite a bit more than 7K :!:
Looking for mint sealed or unused Palitoy Empire.

Absolutely agree, grading adds on so much to the big ticket items that figure ungraded would go for under £5K I reckon. Anything over £2K is to much IMO. lol

I always enjoy tracking the auction but my two bids got blown away. It's really hard to judge what value people put on grading but it was hard to spot a reasonably priced star wars MOC today. Next time maybe!

I guess the trick is to buy a high grade ungraded item but that’s easier said than done.

The value on a graded item will depend on the collector people into grading will pay significant premiums for 85 or 90 grades (sometimes called investment grade), as said above some will pay thousands more for a high grade. Some anti graders won’t pay anymore for graded pieces while others will pay the premium and crack them open. I don’t think you can calculate a premium for a high grade it could be 20-30% more or it could be double or triple. The good news is it is nothing like comics where the grade has a huge significance on the price, grade is everything in comics!

Yeah it's the same with video games, collectors only seem interested in high grade and/or mint condition, sealed games with rips or creases etc are relatively worthless. I like that Star Wars has a healthy market for lower condition items, I think it's a bit snobby to write off anything that has 'character.'
