Alright Ebay sellers. We need to have a talk.
We need to talk about how to price things when it comes to Selena memorabilia.
There is definitely a demand for it. Even 20 years on. I love it when unique items show up like old concert posters, records, and autographs. I’ve been searching on Ebay since 1998. I actually heard of Ebay through an old Selena message board on some geocities website. I mostly browse, especially since most sellers won’t ship to Australia anyway.
Some people have no idea how to price things. No idea at all. I understand people paying large amounts for an autograph or LPs because they are so hard to find. But no one is going to spend 5 dollars on a reprinted photo you stole off google.
But these are the worst offenders I’ve seen in the past couple of weeks. These aren’t saying she isn’t “worth” the money. I’m just saying practically speaking, you may want to lower your prices if you want to sell. You have the right to price things whatever you want but it hurts my head looking at some of these starting bids.
$2,400 for a mug. I don’t doubt it’s HTF but for that price, you can buy a used car. I’m thinking mayyyybee 25-30 dollars? I think I’ve seen it sold for $50 once. But good try!
I love finding things from her old boutique and clothing line. But not sure anyone would pay more than 5-10 dollars for just the tag. May want the actual clothing item connected to it.
Once again, a great item from the boutique and rare but not that rare. I’ve seen this sell for around $25-40 dollars.
Who knows? Maybe people will pay that much for those items. I’m just saying from all the years I’ve spent on there window shopping, not likely.
If Pawn Stars ever needed someone to appraise their Selena item, I think they should give me a call 😉
