Jem (used) prices going up?
Around 200 years ago, a visionary named P.T. Barnum said "...There's a sucker born every minute...".
I believe that is true for both buyers and sellers.
I'll use my PMC as an example. I bought it for $800. I knew it was worth more...much more. Today, it can fetch up to $2500. But you won't pry it out of my hands for any less than $4000. Why? Because of its value to me.
And that's where the pricing on collectables takes a twist. It's all about what the buyer is willing to pay, not where the seller sets the price. If a buyer is willing to pay $4000 for a PMC, then the fair market price goes up on PMCs. Kevin's 10th is priced on what it's worth to him. He may never sell it...then again, he might, opening the door for others to sell thier 10th at inflated prices thus driving the fair market price up.
I've seen on several sites Jems, that a year ago you couldn't give away (VDY, SK, DY), selling for $1000 and more. I keep kicking myself for letting my VDY go that I paid $400.....doooggghhhttt!!!!!!!
