Just curious what people thought the fair value for all 6 of the original Rocket USA tin signs would be?

I would think that fair value imo would be around $150 to $200 considering that the you're not paid to think one is really hard to find

The You're Not Paid to Think sign is always listed high (some as high as $175) but at auction they've never sold for more than $50 that I've seen. The last auction I watched a few months ago sold for closer to $40. The others should be around $20 each, I haven't checked recently (I have 3 of them) but from what I remember they're all around that price, so I don't see anyone paying close to $200 for all of them.

If you want a quick sale, $100 should do it. That could be a good starting price at auction, too. You can't expect someone to pay the going rate on all 6 of them if you Lot them together, as they are being forced to buy them all (I Lot multiple items regularly so I know from experience you need to offer a decent discount on the items in order to sell it all). I think the price I gave you is fair, it's higher than I would price to a normal Lot of that value, but since this is a complete series you can get away with charging a little more on the bundle.

Wait...were you talking cubicle tin signs or large tin signs? If you were talking large signs...yeah I could see $150 for those at least depending on condition (I don't know how many of these they made so unsure what exactly you are referring to).

Each of the large ones go for at least $30 that I've seen, so your estimate looks to be within a good range (how much does the you're not paid to think large tin sign go for?).

thanks for the input guys. Sorry for not being clearer but I was referring to the large tin signs, not the cubicle versions. I always see the "you're not paid to think" version LISTED for insane amounts but who knows if someone is willing to actually pay that much for one. I know I'm not...

One of those just sold a couple days ago for $30 at a BIN, I saw it listed but I didn't know what its value was.
