SO… how much is a complete set of PotSM worth? Of course, there’s probably no real answer, other than whatever someone wants to pay. Hobbies can be expensive and this past year was hobby-rich due to the plague, etc.
But in March of this year, 2021, I made the decision to move on in gaming without 2 immensely heavy fliptop crates full of piratey plastic, and undertook to sell my complete PotSM collection (one of every official card ever produced) on eBay – mostly one complete set at a time, with a few single card exceptions.
The collection was spread over 23 auctions, not counting duplicates (for instance if I sold 2 Guichuans, I only counted the card that went for the higher price) – not counting taxes, eBay and Paypal’s cut of the action, shipping or insurance costs, etc, so this is the “gross” figure, not “net”.
And the total, overall sale figure was:
———> $8,822.00 USD
Hard to believe, and certainly much more than I guessed it would end up at when I started.
Some highlights would be:
- The Obago Deuce card sold for $1825
- Fire and Steel set went for $810
- Frozen North set went for $762
- Curse of Davy Jones set for $575
- Single Zeus card for $216
- Single Guichuan card for $217
- Kalle et Anka / Donld Duck home islands, 2 cards + some misc. for $151
So there you have it, for what it’s worth, with a big thank you to anyone here who bought one of my items at auction and is giving it a good new home.

Wow Holofernes!! O_O Welcome back! At least for the sales bonanza! XD
It was really an amazing thing to see so many great sets and items go up for auction in a relatively short span of time. The Deuce is crazy – the three times it’s been on eBay that I’ve seen, it’s gone for $500, then $1225, now $1825.01!
I was also surprised by how high some of the auctions got – F&S going for a whole $300 more than SCS was maybe the craziest thing to me. I though the Scandinavian home islands might have gone for a little more, so maybe I should have bid on those haha.
Thanks again for the memories – from informative posts in the original eBay thread back around 2007, to making your epic collection available to us!May 3, 2021 at 3:38 PM #13129XerecsModerator

The FS set had ALL the LE things. All the Morning Stars and Sea Lizards, plus the historical pirates pack, Raptor Maw, Chum Maker and more. I suspect that’s why it went for so much.
