Most expensive Carcassonne item ever on eBay?
« on: September 11, 2013, 10:48:25 AM »
A copy of Die Belagerer just sold for 109.50 euros on eBay! Oh my. I put a bid in at around the 30 euro mark, but then it just exploded...

That's certainly the most expensive Carc thing I've ever seen sold. Though perhaps an original copy of La Porxada may fetch more.

I am going to appeal again to any kind hearted Germans out there that might be willing to buy a copy or two and send it to the forum members. I only live in the UK, so the postage wouldn't be too bad! :D

I was watching this too. I was expecting it go high as it's the first time it's been on eBay to the best of my knowledge. But like yourself, it was too high for me.

I would expect one of the original Porxada stickers to go for a lot more than this. After all, there were 1000 sets including Die Belagerer sold whereas there were just 72 Porxada stickers.

Wow, you're right. He went WAY up on his price. Last week when I saw it, it was $128. If you look at his completed items, you'll see it for $128 with no one biting.

Heh, I wondered which one of us just bought this?  Or you mean there are sick Carcassonne completionists out there that are not on this forum?  hehe
I just drew the perfect tile for my MonKnighThieFarmer!

Do you now at last see Tobias point???
Someone (guess who) made these auctions possible.
They are giving these sharks the possibility to make serious money on this.

Let's remember that there's a big difference between how much these sell for and how much people are asking for. I genuinely hope that nobody is desperate enough to spend $285 on 6 tiles. The same guy is still asking for $185 for Corn Circles 1; at that price he can keep it.

The most I've seen the full box sell for is still 109.50 Euros. I've seen two "Buy it Now"s for about 65 Euros and unsurprisingly both of those went quite quickly. There are a couple of ongoing auctions still in progress too.

I have a little curious to know how this guy gets these in expansions, which are not very common even in Germany. ???

That same guy asking $185 for his Corn Circles 1 was asking $128 just last week. No idea why he bumped his price up so much but if it wasn't selling at $128 (it wasn't, he's relisted a few times), it sure isn't going to sell at $185.

I will send the link from the ebay seller to HiG, because the seller use the HiG logo - you can see it at the bottom of the text.

All what I can say is: wait wait wait - in some month is even ebay not so much expensive.
And in Germany is that box 24,99 EUR at Mueller.

I will wait for the CundCo Shop one day...

La Porxada:
Don't you ever ask yourself why does the German have so much items from the La Porxada?

It is really easy:
At BGG you can find a very good picture of the tile and also at CarcF you can find the rules.
Print it out, glue the tile on a blanc tile with the back Carc C - and then go as a seller to ebay and earn much money from people who like to drew out their money out off the window...

The seller put the logo away.
So that means he is looking regular here at CarcC and he/she knows how important the 6 new tiles are for many members at CarcC - that makes the price high...
