Small unit, nice find...
« on: June 16, 2011, 11:31:18 AM »
I won a unit yesterday, a 10 x 10 with only 4 boxes of clothes and an ordinary wood breakfast/dining table with 6 chairs.
 
Inside one of the boxes was an UNUSED Super Bowl XLIV ticket with bus pass and lanyard!

Only paid $55.00 for the unit. How much do you think the ticket is worth to collectors?

Even the small, relatively empty units can generate a big find!

You might want to check EBay.I saw stubs offered at about 65-95 dollars.

Since it was New Orleans emotional win you should be able to get more from someone.

Congratulations.

NICE! That is an awesome find. There would be a lot of people that would love to have that Im sure. I would imagine you would get at least 50$ dollars for that at the very minimum, possibly a good deal more.

Id say anywhere form $50 to $150. Should be able to sell it rather quickly. Dont go to a sports store though, they will usually undercut you big time.

Yea, did a seven day auction on EBay, only got $42 for it. Should have sold it to one of you guys on the forum for $50 or $100! LOL

Now that is a shame. Sorry to say one that I would have not bought it, not a sports collector. Two that is how it goes sometimes at auctions. Ebay and other online auctions really do kill the profits for collectors and people who sell to collectors. Also do not forget that the economy is still not where it use to be.

There is a saying that I heard about a year ago, "Something is only as worth as someone is willing to pay you for it right then."
