I have just rented a church yard sale table, which will be held on a main street. I would like to sell some of my new on card 2003 collection. I am setting prices for all of my other items but of course do not want to put stickers on the blister cards. Most were purchased at KayBee last year, and I likely paid $0.50 to $1.00 or so for each one. What do you suggest as a good pricing strategy? I was thinking of 75 cents each, with the offer to buy 2 for a $1. I am going to be running this show by myself so maybe it would just be easier to charge 50 cents. Any suggestions for a good pricing strategy. I am relunctantly going to just lay them on the table for people to "paw" through, so people can make their own choices. Looking for your good ideas? :)

pricing

Step 1 is to remove the KB price tag.
Step 2 price them at 1-2 bucks. I sell mine at car shows for $2 all of the time.
In your case people might be a little hesitant to buy at the higher price, but $1 is still good. $1.50 just causes change problems, unless you have a few rolls of quarters. good luck selling..

i would say sell them for $1 max. remember these are 2003 cars and most can still be found at the stores. unless you are talking treasure hunts, you need more than $1 for them.

Guess it depends where you live in the USA....The going rate for older FE in NM is about 50c...
I tried to sell some at 3 for $5.00.. Took most of them home. The next show I tried for $1.00 each and no takers.... At 50c I got rid of over 8 cases...,
