So, I've spotted a bit of chatter online recently, and was curious about this.
From what I can establish, the old Battlemaps seem to be Out of Print, and selling for fairly high prices.
Does anyone know if this is right? - is it the maps themselves that people are after? or the cards/miniatures etc?
I've got a load of Memoir stuff sat upstairs, haven't played anything besides the core game in ages. I'd planned on keeping hold of it all (might be a good thing to bring out with kids in a few years), but I'm now wondering whether I should cash in.
what are people's thoughts? is there really that much of a secondary market?
Some are more desirable than others. The mini themselves are available in other expansions, and the blister packs fall off even on items in pristine condition. The cards from Sword of Stalingrad are only available with that map. Some of the maps have been declassified and possible to (nearly) replicate with standard components.
There are in fact people willing to pay high dollar for them regardless, especially Tigers in the Snow. This can be seen from the marketplace prices. https://boardgamegeek.com/geekmarket/pricehistory/thing/4157...
