I have about 15 pins I bought way back in May of 2005. I bought them off the Disney Shopping site during a pin sale for a trip that eventually got cancelled They have been in their original packing up in my closet ever since. I think they all are LE’s.
I looked online to try to determine the value of them, and found several of them on ebay at the buy it now price of $9 to $19 depending on the pin (most were about $13). Others I found in a forum that had photos of pins (pinpics? I can’t remember the site) and I looked at the members that ‘had’ vs. the members that ‘wanted’ to see where they fell and I think they all were wanted more than they were available for trade. Also, there were a few pins in my collection I could find no info on - not even a photo.
Now, this is where I am lost, lol. I don’t know if we should trade any of these pins. While I sort of know the value of some of my pins (only from ebay), I have no idea what the value is of someone else’s pins. I don’t want to get suckered into trading them for junk, so how do I educate myself about pin values? Are my pins under value–meaning no one will want to trade?
Should I just take them all, let the kids trade as they wish (with CM’s only?) and not worry if I’m giving away something super rare? Will anyone want pins that are 18 months old?
What do you think? :redface:
