HELP! How much should I sell these F1 Drivers autographs?

Postby DK-Y2Y »

Guys, I am thinking of selling some F1 autographs signed by the same drivers. I will sell them on ebay. They are:
1) Ralf Schumacher signature on a poster
2) Ralf Schumacher signature on a small empty paper
3) David Coulthard signature on a poster

How much should I sell them?

Don't expect to get too much, especially a signed scrap of paper... i'd start them with no reserve or opening price.

Because most people who come on with your intentions end up posting links to their items in an effort to sell their stuff...!

In DKs defense, he/she did not actually post a link but simply asked for a value.


I would have no clue as to a value, but knowing eBay your best bet is to just have a no reserve auction and let the market decide what it's worth. You could have a collector out there that would pay you 3 times what you'd consider taking or you could wind up selling them all for less than the cost of shipping them.

It's up to you... what do you think you want for them and then post them on eBay, just don't actually come back and post the link here. :) Anyone interested can simply search.

I think the best word to describe the thread is...... CRASS.

DK....how can anyone take you seriously when your first 3 posts on this entire forum are to discuss how much you can sell your Formula 1 memorabilia for. Honestly, this is a forum made up (from the best of my observations) of true race fans, historians, armchair experts and amateur pundits. Frankly, if most of the forum members had the autographed items that you have, they wouldn't sell them.

Nonetheless....peddle your wears on Ebay champ.

Really?

Come on, we got inundated with idiotic twin posters a couple of days ago... give someone the benefit of the doubt, it's not as if DK came in insulting your family, so why not keep an appropriate level of response?

After all he/she could be a 13 year old kid who found the memorabilia from cleaning out their recently deceased father's personal items. :violinist:

Value is subjective really; it all depends on what people will be willing for pay for it; if you have a $100,000 car; and no-one wants to pay more than $50,000 then $50k is it's worth. As suggesting; eBay is your best way of determining value; but I would suggest the signed DC poster would be worth the most!

As for the users above that immediately jumped to the conclusion of spam; look up the definitely of spam; DK-Y2Y asked for advice, didn't ask anyone to buy anything or posted any links!!! If the thread does not interest you; leave the thread; don't post comments that add nothing useful to the thread or forum!
