Hi Guys. I have an unopened, set of AC5 Character Sheets. The SW is authentic, no bad tears and carefully stored in a magazine sleeve for years. I would like a fair value as I found a buyer to purchase my entire 1E and BECMI collection. Picture Attached. Thanks!

The estimated value on The Acaeum:

Possibly 1.5-2X the NM value for SW, maybe more.  SW is a wildcard.

C'mon... Are you saying that it could go for a value between 750 and 1000???

I would have expected 300/400 since last auction were between 100 and 200...

This is a really nice copy.  Personally, I have only seen a handful of these in shrink in the last few years and in today's market, 1.5x to 2x is not uncommon for shrink items.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

Hello aia!

We would only know if it was listed. :)

Personally, I would remove this one from the collection and sell it separately, unless the buyer was really interested in it, and willing to pay a fair price.  Same with any additional rare items.

500+ would not be unreasonable these days.

The market is only going up... slowly... but going up...

So now is the time to get the rares you can.  :wink:

If this thread is to be believed(and I see no reason why it's not), one sold last year at this time for at least $2100.

RPGA Modules in Shrink

I'm not sure if that means anything for this one, since it's a one off, but it wouldn't be unheard of for it to see $1000+.

Thank you all for the feedback.

So $1000ish is not unreasonable. I remember an Ebay auction a few years back where a SW copy went for $1000 but it was determined after the fact that the booklet was not unopened. That ending bid was the only recent valuation I remember to give me even a ballpark figure.

The buyer is still deciding on whether to purchase this module and some of my other character sheet sets because of the value. Unfortunately, I don't have any more ultra-rare, ultra expensive modules (although I do have some complete character pads, 1977 wizard logo) and a few other character sheet sets complete and in the SW. Since he has been a loyal buyer, I will give him time to decide but if he declines, I will sell it to an interested member.

I will upload some more images if anyone is interested.
