I have a ton of old SPI games and I'm curious about their marketplace value.

I seem to remember running across a database which tracked sales info, but can't remember where. There seems to be info like that for more recent games here (under closed auctions on the game page), but it's generally nonexistent for 70's games. Does anybody know of a resource for earlier games, perhaps on a different site?

Thanks -

Refer to OOP reseller sites like nobleknight.com and trollandtoad.com, but discount 15 - 30% off their prices to get an idea what you may get in resale to another seller. Also check eBay.

The value of S&T games vary greatly, as some titles were great, while others were not so great. Regardless of their rarity, bad titles don't hold their value.

It depends on the product and the price. 15-30% off the CHEAPER of the two sites may be appropriate, as each overvalues some games, and Troll & Toad is notorious for excessively high prices for OOP games.

Thanks again.

Just to clarify, I'm primarily interested in whether there exists a comprehensive pricing application or list somewhere. One of the threads on Consimworld seemed to suggest that there is a guy (no link) who complies auction info on wargames from ebay etc and sells a quarterly price book. BGG does a good job using info based (I assume) only on BGG posted information.

A publically-available auction crawler database that you could interface your games list to would be cool.

This isn't what you're asking for as its scope is limited only to BGG sales history, but this person has written an app that does a superb job plotting past BGG sales for a given game:
