Price Check on Aisle 5

I made a good sum by knowing the resellers in my area of speciality
and then contacting them carefully, for example not dumping my whole
list on them, but just starting with the one thing they liked the most.
...and eBay is just too useful to ignore. Offering on eBay with a reserve
set is a way of asking the world for a price on a thing.
Here's a nice reseller listing site

I for one would not find a list for sale posted to classiccmp as offensive,
especially from regular members, at not-frequent intervals. Jim and
Pat have done it, for example.

I think priceguides per se. are nuts. I have a HotWheels that's supposed
to be worth $250 according to one of them. But think about where price
guides are best used, on the table at the big sale so you can open it up
and show an otherwise unknowing buyer what all the sellers want him to
hear. "Hey, it's not me, the price is right here in this book.", the book
published by the sellers of course.
