A fellow Acaeum member has offered to purchase the spare copy of ref sheets I got from a lot on eBay - they are in nearly untouched condition, by the way. Anyway, I don't want to overcharge, and I don't want to be underpaid, so, I come to you guys... the collective knowledge to see what a respectable amount would be.

The offer, currently, is $25 - I have tentatively agreed, but as said above... I basically don't want to be considered "an easy mark" or a rip-off like the Kitty.

If the potential purchaser reads this: know I am only asking to make sure we both get an equitable trade.


Thanks.

As the potential purchaser, no offense taken at all.  I want it to be a fair price.  So any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It would be nicer if you 2 guys could have a fight about it :twisted:

(perhaps if they were 4E reference sheets.....................) :D

Serl;

A couple years back I sold a mess of ref sheets and single booklets from OCEs on the forums....I think I asked about $20-$25 each depending on condition.  It may be a little low, but what the hell.

I think that is fair/high (the high side of fair) for the sheets.  I don't think I would have offered that much although I was tempted to make an offer.

I have this extra Temple of Elemental Evil map book.  Anyone take a guess at fair market value of this while I threadjack.

Sheets used to go for $10-20 or so.
Dunno about the Temple map, Mark. A few bucks?

Some time ago I asked a similar question about the three Maps from the Box Set of the Empire of the Petal Throne.
Only one person offered an estimate of about $15 for ALL three maps.
I think that estimate was a little myself, I was thinking more like $7-10 Per Map.

That said, I would think that $25 for just the reference sheets is a bit on the high side too, but not outrageously so.
As a buyer I would have offered about $10-15 plus reasonable shipping for the Reference Sheets.
For $25 I would want free shipping, from anywhere on the planet earth.

For the TOEE Mapbook (As a buyer) I would offer about $5-10.

Again, those estimates were sated as a buyer..........
As a seller, I would want more, but not much more.

Thanks, all.

I know what I'd pay to have the ToEE map... $10. More than that is not worth it, as I can print it out from a pdf.

My thought was $10-15 or so... they're just reference sheets.

Nice, thanks. But, I was offered the amount - I did not ask for it. In fact, neither of us knew what to value it at, hence the question in the 1st place. Obviously, most sane people will take a higher amount over a lower one if they can get it, but there "seems" to be a consensus that the reference sheets are somewhere between 15 - 25. So, if I do it for $25 (free priority shipping) the actual cost of the sheets is much lower, and in line with what everyone has seemed to indicate.

So, I appreciate the near insult. I'll keep it in mind when I look at anything you offer.

Has what they are got any relevence to the value?

(Mediocre basic module with a different colour cover - contents readily available to download for free - probably valueless then!!) :D  :D

No disrespect intended, S. ... I thought you were soliciting opinion... and I was only offering a tease to your Kitty ref  :wink:

If I misread intent, then I am sorry - it happens. I did ask for opinions, after all.
