TOPIC: Overpriced tokens on Ebay

Overpriced tokens on Ebay 8 years 10 months ago #1

I've been watching prices of tokens for a while on Ebay.

Is it just me or are Troll & Toad's "Buy It Now" pricing seem way to inflated?

Here's an example: They have a 2009 common (Cudgel) listed @ $4.55

Shhhhh. I sold them an entire stack of Rings of the Deep for something like $40 a pop last year.
Blimey!

Most of the tokens from the two stores are over priced on eBay. If you really need a certain token it is good that they are there but the price they are asking is about 30% high on most of the stock IMHO.

The Cudgel is taking it to extremes though. $4.55 for a common?!?

It is with free shipping. I believe that is why it is so expensive since shipping used to be 3.00 dollars.
They are doing "free" shipping because it gives them a 20% discount on seller fees through the holidays and it forces a 5 star rating for shipping. It is still crazy high for a common and since you can't combine shipping, it is a terrible deal. Plus all those tokens drown out people selling them for more reasonable prices and I think give the impression they are worth that much.

That's how it's been in the two years I've played... TD Forums are the place to go for the least expensive and or trade transactions... but sometimes it takes a while to find what you're looking for.

In a crunch, or if money isn't an issue, eBay can be a good choice... Of course anyone buying from Gaming Etc should buy it from their website, not ebay... cheaper prices, PLUS a discount for forumites.

Even with those cheaper prices, though, you can almost always find tokens cheaper here. Especially GP.

I actually like that the BIG TWO have high eBay prices... it makes those forumites who use eBay occasionally (I do), look even better to customers... because our prices are typically lower.

In 2009, the Morning Star combo token was driven by three Cudgels or Shillelaghs, and I remember paying a bit of a premium to get one back in 09. Might be remnant pricing.

True, But then how do justify spending $4.53 for a gold backed 2011 Common Nixie Vest?

Just so you guys know Tokens are always cheaper to buy direct from my website rather then buying from me on Ebay. I am not Troll and Toad so I cannot speak for them, but for me we try to keep our prices reasonable at Gamingetc.com. Sometimes we are wrong etc but I try. And for anyone who does not know there is a 5% coupon if you type in TDFORUM at checkout.

Michelle, I've dealt with your store both on & off ebay. While your prices maybe a bit higher than buying / trading with a formite, it is a buisness. Plus you are a formite and a Player.

With that being said. I was commenting more to the fact T&T maybe not involved in the formus or playing. Therfore they might not have a better understanding of how token priceing are done by the formites. It almost seems like they price them like CCG, Minis. ect. (It's OOP so its gotta be worth more.)

I can just imagine if they are pricing an 09 common at $4 + , than in their format does that make an 03 common rope token $12 + ?

sonofrich, I agree with everything you are saying. I know my name or company was not mentioned but I just want people to know that I and an extension of me Gamingetc tries to be fair and honest. =)

Thanks for the kind words

I enjoy dealing with Michelle. She's been quite fair at the gamingetc booth both buying and selling my tokens, and since she's a TD player and follows the market, she's got a good eye for pricing.

Experiences at the Troll and Toad booth were mixed- tokens were either significantly under or over valued. Worth a look. It is nice to see some other big booths getting into the token biz, but I'll probably continue heading to Michelle first.
