    I agree that in the parameters of The Dark Tower.org $2,000 would be the price you would expect to pay. However take for instance the auction a little while ago, in which Rand sold his bound and signed copy, which was a gift from Michael and Audrey Whelan. With all the provenance the book held, it was unequivocally stated by very respected members here, that $1,000 or thereabouts was the price it was worth. It sold for $2,900 I believe.
    There are a huge number of collectors that never visit this site, probably many times more than come here. To those collectors there is a different expectation of retail, which is proven daily by the sales that are made.
    David I agree with you completely, but only in the confines of the forum we subscribe to.

    Agree with Alec. Example: offered SOD Vol 1 & 2 gift edition here for $200 shipped with no luck. eBay auction ended up at $380 plus shipping. On the other end, Desperation gift edition was a no offer here and only got $50/opening bid on eBay.

    That's because (IMO), the "What's it worth question?" is usually instead answered as "what would YOU pay for it?". Just because one person wouldn't pay $2k for something, doesn't mean nobody will, especially given the rarity of the items and how infrequently they become available. That one person who would only pay $1k may also end up waiting a LONG time to find one at that price.

    The "what's it worth?" is all but impossible to answer unless you are looking at the end results of multiple ebay auctions (which I think many would agree lends itself to being seen by many more collectors than any other means)--- even still, you might be looking at a time where multiple people are all insatiably looking a particular item and willing to pay more for instant gratification.. All this is why I am very leery of people "unequivocally" saying how much a specific item of which there are less than 1000 in existence of (and probably less than ten sold per year) is worth.

    I think the "groupthink" involved in determination of pricing in some forums has too much sway--- example person A asks how much something is worth, person B says $1k, person C agrees, then persons D, E, F, G, etc all come away thinking $1k is a good price for the book. Then the books gets quickly sold privately for $1000... Meanwhile that same book goes on ebay for 5 times as much and people think that it was sold for too much (when in reality if it was listed for $1000 on ebay it would get instantly snatched up). Same thing could happen on the flipside where ebay values it less than one person would (perhaps that one person has a personal connection to the book/artwork/etc for some reason.. The moral of the story is some people would pay more and some people would pay less, so there is nothing "unequivocal" about valuing these types of books

    I sold these years ago. Good guy owns them and if anyone is interested he would sell for much less off eBay.
