What Might Your Item Be Worth? – How to Find Out

We are often asked how much an item is worth – Well, using Ebay you can see what similar items have sold for giving some indication as to value.

Here is what to do…

First of all type into the search bar the item you want to value. In this case we have Chosen the Character Building Wooden Cyberman

Make sure you search “All Listings” and “All Categories”

This will Show you current unsold items on bidding or buy it now.


In the drop down box select “highest First”

Then, on the left had side under “Show only” check the “sold Listings” Box (Completed listings will show you unsold items as well which wont help to value an item).


You will now see all sold listings for your chosen item with the highest obtained price at the top.

If there are to many items you can refine your search using the categories on the left.


Things to remember…

Generally the First listing of a rare item will fetch the highest (as in the 3.75″ chase and Character building figures).

Trends Change so look at recently ended items for a guide.

Prices can vary widely, treat any prices as a rough guide only and dont assume you will always get the same for yours.

    I am having some trouble locating a fair price for my book set. Isbn 0426192702 it is the first doctor who gift set of the target doctor who range. There is a listing on amazon but the price seems a tad far fetched and i cant find any other details anywhere
    Not ever about the publication

    What if ebay doesn’t have what you are looking to possibly sell in their system? I even scanned the bar code after using keyword and my product wasn’t found.

    This is a great way of finding what people are bidding on current auctions, but is there a way to find out what things have actually sold for?
    (Without watching a load of auctions until they close !)

    Ok thanks but nowhere sells this poster
    I went to that doctor who monsters event and they had these posters numbered to 200 and I found no 1
    How much would that be worth?
    The poster has a green melting dalek on it!

    I found (and own) that Rose and K9 set in Sainsburys back in 2006. I guess I shouldn’t have opened it!

    I found a pyrex Dr. Who coffee mug copyrighted 1982, I haven’t been able to find it anywhere on the internet? Might anyone have an idea on value?

    My school’s WiFi blocked the ebay link so I can’t see what Remembrance set it is. Is it the one with the partially destroyed Imperial and the Davros Emperor version?

      Really cause I was at Fan fest last weekend and the davros and damaged imperial were for $39.99 and there were quite a few.

    I never realized the remembrance of the daleks set was going for that much. I still think i might just keep mine.
