The Pirates market is alive and well! Some recent auction prices to consider:
SM island terrain set: $102.50 (new high)
Zeus: $167.50 (new high, and possibly the highest amount for a 10 master since a Guichuan sold for $175, I think in 2018)
Dungeon (DJC LE): $24.50
Booty Finder: $26
Celtic Fury: $49.79
Near-complete set of DJC: $325October 3, 2019 at 5:33 AM #9771October 4, 2019 at 4:41 PM #9781October 7, 2019 at 7:07 PM #9830
Some reasonable lots up, some might be worth taking a flyer on. Still no bids on the SCS LE’s + Obago lot…October 10, 2019 at 8:03 PM #9859October 18, 2019 at 10:41 AM #9911November 1, 2019 at 12:07 PM #10041November 6, 2019 at 6:25 AM #10104November 8, 2019 at 2:27 PM #10122November 20, 2019 at 9:17 PM #10217November 22, 2019 at 7:36 AM #10346November 25, 2019 at 10:51 AM #10382
This looks familiar… I think I also have at least one Fairfield box stuffed with unopened rules packets. XD Not sure why a picture of the actual packs isn’t included.November 29, 2019 at 4:06 PM #10384November 30, 2019 at 9:04 AM #10388December 3, 2019 at 9:02 AM #10450December 5, 2019 at 6:10 PM #10482December 10, 2019 at 5:46 AM #10535
Now up to 42 items being bid on, with a lot of singles. Zeus may actually sell for $110+!December 13, 2019 at 6:03 AM #10551December 26, 2019 at 5:22 PM #10574
Those 5 masters were all nail biters! We snagged the Celtic for around 60. I think the Zeus went for around 90$, and surprisingly the Delusion sold for more than a Baochuan both between 20-40 I think. I feel like the community truly showed what these ships are worth since the bidding started so low.December 27, 2019 at 7:51 PM #10578

Nice. It’s bizarre to not know what stuff went for and not record it in my spreadsheet. XD Celtic Fury for $60 is a lot, possibly close to the second-highest for that one.January 2, 2020 at 6:09 PM #10600

Wow, I actually did start watching those before I left or something. I’m seeing the Delusion for $23.50 and the Baochuan for $27.26, but maybe we’re looking at different auctions.
Unless I missed one, these are the last 4 Zeus auctions I have recorded:
O_O Average of 112.13! Plus, recently the Shui Xian went for $79 and the Celtic Fury went for $59, both way higher than average.January 3, 2020 at 12:58 PM #10602
I probably got my wires crossed on the Delusion/Baochuan then..they were all from the same seller, right? so…..unfortunately….that Celtic…went to us hahahaha. I usually see them for 60-100 in bidding so I thought it was an ok buy…think I need to be more patient? ;-/January 3, 2020 at 5:16 PM #10603

I think so, though I deleted them from my watch list.
Do you mean you see the Celtic Fury posted in the $60-100 range for Buy it Now? I rarely see that one go that high in bidding.
Extreme patience (along with being a super active and productive member of the community) was what got me all the 10 masters on a budget, but it’s just a matter of how bad you want them. (or specific ones)January 3, 2020 at 5:39 PM #10604
Well…I have two left to hunt!!! I will probably stay away from buying on ebay for a while unless a gem comes along. Just gotta keep trolling or maybe trades!!!! *fingers crossed*March 29, 2020 at 10:13 PM #10717
From a few recent listings I watched, it looks like prices have come down a bit this year. With the exception of an SM box of 36 packs for $263. A set of 8 busts sold for $58.
Still some decent things up, main auction I see is MIx18.April 11, 2020 at 3:20 PM #10823April 17, 2020 at 8:40 PM #10864
Looking at some of the completed listings for the first time in a while and surprised by how high some stuff is selling for… $85 for an SS box! (among others)April 27, 2020 at 9:52 AM #10893
Some pretty good stuff being bid on right now… a Baochuan and 18 pack MI box end today. However, after that there will still be a GF9, F&S treasure card, and built copies of the Guichuan and Zeus up for grabs!April 29, 2020 at 8:47 PM #10901
BROKEN, PUNCHED Zeus at $162.50 with almost 4 days to go!! (as we enter one of the worst recessions on record) O_O Sometimes this game has impressive staying power!!May 9, 2020 at 8:03 PM #10936
Seeing 2 auctions at $500 right now along with other goodies like a punched Guichuan.
It appears that Pirates is handling the financial storm incredibly well. Some of the recent “damage”:
Pirates of the Spanish Main pewter speed range ruler and token lot: $66
Punched, broken Zeus: $162.50
Baochuan: $96 (previous auction record that I recorded was $51!!)
SM tin w/4 packs: $65 (4 packs!?)
But also, some RotF/F&S LE’s for less than $5/each.
Punched Delusion: $66
CC island set: $51
Punched Guichuan: $127.50
I know it’s a pretty flawed record at this point, but my spreadsheet shows all six 10 masters averaging at least $30 each, which is something I don’t think I’ve seen there before. I think there was a time when the Zeus, Guichuan and Delusion were the only 10 masters to average $30+.
I mean, a broken 10 master for over $150. 😲 I still can’t get used to this! I got a near-complete set of SCS for $150 in 2014. The Baochuan has appreciated in value so much lately. A lot of the most recent 10 master auction prices are record highs, even when punched!
