Curious as to what the worth on a shrink-wrapped copy of this box is considered to be.  Accidentally ended up with two copies, and once the other arrives I'll be deciding which one to sell off -- likely the shrink-wrapped one, as I'm the type of person who likes to open these things and read them. :lol:

Therefore: what should I expect price-wise?  I'm pretty sure I overpaid on it, given the price I paid for the other copy and the fact that I got hit with a creep bidder, so I don't know what I should be expecting. :roll:

The boxed set & each of the supplements go for an average of $25 in EX used condition, not sure about new/SW.

I've seen a couple of Elfquest RPG items come up for sale this summer on Ebay and was surprised that they weren't going for what I considred to be very much (Probably about what they would cost retail if produced today).



I would search ebay to see if any are up for auction this week and check the ebay stores to see if they are selling any with buy it now. The buy it now prices work out a base guideline though some are so inflated as to be ridiculous.



This might be better put aside for a few years rather than sold right now. I know that three or four years ago I couldn't get anything for a whole bunch of rpg stuff I recently sold easily on ebay. Times change and old games just get older and sometimes worth more.

I probably was the person who bought a few of those.  I was surprised that they didn't go for more as well, though pleasantly since I was the one spending money. :D

I may hold onto it for a while then; watch eBay and see what's happening, and so on.

If you ever want to get rid of it, I might be interested, but price is always the key factor.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

the elfquest sold at GenCon was in an older box than that. the guy said it was renowned for splitting easily.

That's the same box as the one I have shrink-wrappeded.

To answer Rakeesh's question: I only need one, but when I saw that one going for so cheap with an extra item, I just had to jump on it and hope that I'd get outbid on the second copy I was already bidding on.  Unfortunately, the latter didn't happen. :| (Hopefully it won't come down to me finding out how good of it eating it is. :lol: )

(Aside from the shrinked box, the other stuff I picked up recently were all sourcebooks.)

Still waiting for that particular one to arrive.  It looked in good condition, but that ultimately will determine whether I get rid of it or the shrink-wrapped one.
