    Bookpriceing is generally what you'd expect to be payed for a specific card. theres a "high mark" and "lowmark" displaying the lowest and highest prices these have sold for. Thats not necessarily what people actually pay, It depends on how badly the person who's buying it wants it. you cant expect top dollar for everything all the time.

    There are soo many priceguides out there. scrye,beckett,pojo.. the list goes on. I personally prefer beckett because each price guide is different, some display higher values and some lower values on the same card then others, Scrye is extremely cheap when it comes to bookpriceing. their cards always seem to look lesser valued, Beckett on the other hand has slightly better prices and pojo is the most outrageous of all. Their bookprices are waay too inflated for this TCG. But, Pojo is a free internet resource and can be used as an "estimate" of the actual selling price. For example, one third or one half of pojo's price is normally what you'd see in scrye.

    By the way, I pmed you concerning some interest

    I Find The Best Way To See How Much You Would Get For Your Cards , Is To See How Much People Are Buying Them For!
    The Best Way To Do This Is Probably By Visting eBay.
    And Remember There Only Worth What People Will Pay For Them! There's No Point Not Selling A Card Because A Price Guide Says It's Worth $10, But The Top Anyone Will Pay For It Is $7. Just Ask Offers On The Cards, And Take The Best Offer.
