Default Best source for price guide on Nonsport auto/relic cards?

I know there is NSU magazine but some of the prices in there need to be updated. Is there any online database for a nonsport price guide? Please post here, thanks!

Pretty much agree. Don't think you can really rely on a printed price guide for much. Maybe for older stuff, but for current releases eBay is going to be your biggest marketplace so looking through sold listings will give you the best idea for current market value.

eBay is the standard. I can't even imagine trying to use a 'price guide' for non sport sets. Some of the autographs from sets that released a decade ago have hundreds of dollars of variance in selling prices. It just depends on who is bidding and paying attention at any given time.

Ive always hated price guides, the moment they are printed they are outdated. Ebay completed listings is only way to go... constant, real time prices. Just make sure you look at SOLD prices not ASKING prices. Ive had too many people say this turd is selling for $5000 on eBay... no its not being sold at all, someone may be asking that, but nobody is paying that.

Thanks for the help guys. I guess eBay is the only way to go. But there's a few cards I have that I haven't seen listed on eBay for at least a couple years, maybe more? For example I have a few 1/1 masterpiece cards from American Idol Seasons 3 and 4.

That is the downfall of eBay as a price guide. Once something isn't 'current' it gets dicey. Nothing pops up for 3 months and it may as well have never existed.

Yeah I don't like that about eBay. I'm also curious about the Adam Lambert autograph card I have from the American Idol 8 series by Upper Deck. The last time I saw it on eBay it went for over $250 but that was months ago.

Probably hard to put values on 1/1 all it is worth is what someone will pay and what a seller will take. So no real way of knowing until you sell it. You could always list with a reserve and see what it ends up at if you are really curious. Although even then it all depends on who sees it.

I believe Beckett.com has some non-sport pricing. NSU's price guide seems really outdated.

When there has been times in which an older card that I'm looking for doesn't have a completed auction, I find that a fairly recent price guide useful as a point of reference so I can have a price range in mind. Of course, having those completed auctions as reference is a better tool to utilize in determine "current" prices.

But for 1/1 Masterpieces cards from American Idol Seasons 3 and 4, that might be tough to locate a price. You might have to compare it to other 1/1 cards to determine a price range and go from there.

Hope you find some type reference tool to help you find what you are looking for. That's a tough one.

What price "guide" is best? I like vintagecardprices but I don't know if that is a competitor to this site. It gives SOLD values of cards from many auction sites, including, of course, Ebay. The nice thing is it has a long history. It gives you a decent general idea of what cards have sold for and what they sell for now. The huge drawback is that it doesn't track non authenticated cards.

With that being said, I would say SMR is the worst. It currently has 1959 Fleer Indian Trading at PSA-8 for $25, PSA-9 for $65, and no listing for PSA 10's. Generally, you can find PSA-9's at around $25 or less. So you are thinking that your PSA 9's are worth about $65 and they are not even worth half that (re-sell value, not the value you have personally for the card).
