Default Rare cards of un-popular players

I got a 1/1 printing plate in 2006 Topps Draft Picks and Prospects of Orrien Harris (Pittsburgh draft pick, now plays for Lions). Needless to say, there is no pent up demand, but there is also no book value. How do you go about pricing such cards and any suggestions on this one?

Thanks!!

put it on ebay and start it at .99 cents and let the market determine it's value. or you can send it into CheckOutMyCards and see if they have a price listing for it.

COMC uses beckett to price the cards......... so sending it there won't get it priced.

usually, no-name player plates sell for around $10 or so.

I sent it to COMC. They didn't have a book on it. I figured paying a quarter to have it listed was better than using ebay with out having any real guide to go by.

Thanks for the input. I appreciate it.

Hmm, it's gonna be worth whatever someone is willing to pay, which is generally the rule for any 1/1. 1/1s will never be priced in price guides.
