edit: I'm psyched I grabbed a complete set for like $70 last year. I was worried I was overpaying. :lol:

Well technically, I think both foil General Solo and Threepio foils are rarer than the URFs and URs, I just didn’t think they were as desirable of cards. I’ll do the math in another post later today. If I recall, I think you should expect, for example, a foil general solo in one out of 30 booster boxes(!) Endor booster boxes are around 1k a piece now, so yeah do the math.
can I has urf?

Also, the other foil set available on ebay sold earlier today for $125.

A full set of Endor w/ foils sold for $240 the other month. I thought the person who bought it got a decent deal at the time, but now it looks like they made out big time.

I've been noticing a significant increase in the number of "watchers" to listings. Used to be maybe you'd have 10-15 people watching a high end card. Now it's 40+ in some cases.

I have as well. I think it's a mix of increased interest in SWCCG as well as people just watching to see how high things will end. I definitely do both. I always look at all recently sold listings but I specifically watch sealed product, high end singles, etc to see how high they'll go.

What is happening right now

https://www.ebay.com/itm/164225360225
I sold a few of these at or over $50 a couple months ago, so we'll see what it closes at.
Oh, interesting. Guess I'm out of the loop, because I figured these were basically four to five dollar Pringles chips. I do see the last purchased eBay listing was for 22 bucks, three months ago.
Yeah for some reason my sold listings don't show up a lot of the time. (I think they would be visible from a direct link https://www.ebay.com/itm/173913722140 )

The uncut sheets from WTG are still $50. At this rate for the four Hans, plus four Threepio, eight DOS, eight Chewie anyone able to chop up a sheet properly could be looking at a 10x return on the very low end.
Half tempted to pull mine off the wall if my options were better than a hand saw and a scissors :lol:

I 100% believe this thread is almost entirely obsolete now. The Baniss Keeg and CC Troopers listed at $5+ are the only legitimate posts in this thread anymore IMO. Anything is possible. Listing any main character for $100+ is no longer something to laugh at because the market is completely haywire. If someone lists a WB Han Solo for $150, it does not belong in this thread anymore because there's probably a 50/50 chance someone buys it close to that price.

This thread really has definitely become more of a market watch as of late, however I'm perfectly fine with that.

Not exactly how I would have phrased it.

I would have said that the words "way overpriced" could be removed from the title of this thread, because now you can just assume that any SWCCG eBay auction will be overpriced.

And the "way underpriced" thread can be retired, because underpriced auctions are too infrequent to warrant a thread anymore.

Seriously. Any cheap listings get sniped immediately and the frequency of them has dropped even lower than a few months ago

The other thread can definitely be retired....Then change the name of this thread to WTF? Ebay Auctions.

This just happened today.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-CCG- ... Sw7pNe0sO8

It seems a little shady though. 8 Bidders, but only 2 after it his 65.00. One had an automatic bid up to 100.00.....then up to 114.00. So who knows?

Agree completely. Imma bout to list a bunch of these same exact auctions for these same prices and I kind of hope to make this thread for additional exposure.

Besides the Banis Keeg or CC Trooper auctions, all is fair now.

How much should I be posting my entire t-shirt collection when I get to them?!?!111!

How many shirts is complete? I think $200 per used white shirt with an image on it is a reasonable starting price. Only half joking.

Sold for $50. Not the worst price in the universe but I could still buy 2 Yodas, grade them, and hope they return 10s for the same price.
