Thread: Marking prices at Card Shows

    Marking prices at Card Shows

    So you guys that set up at shows, how do you generally mark prices on your cards? What do you have in boxes? $1? $.50? And the cards you keep in your display cases, do you mark them or just name prices when people ask? Just wondering how everyone else operates.

    50 cent box
    $1 box
    $5 box
    high end cards in display case (can be priced or not depending on what they are)

    I think all collectors like a nice $5 box with a few good deals in there hiding :) I recommend doing that.

    .25 or .50 boxes mixed with random inserts and serial numbered stuff are always something I look through

    I'd be looking for the cheap stuff (.25, .50, 1.00) but for sure even if I were looking for higher end cards if your stuff isn't priced I won't be stopping at your table. Judging from the amount of unpriced stuff I see at shows I must be in the minority though.

    Collect what you want to collect. Collect players and cards that you like. Collect what you can afford. Collect for you, not to try to impress someone else. If you do this you will much more likely to enjoy the hobby and stay with it.

    What do you use to mark it? A price gun? Sticker?

    I used to do card shows back in 1998-2003, I used a price gun and stickers.

    Basically anything above $10-20 in value went in the showcases.

    Most of the rest of the tables were filled with singles for $1-5 each.

    I also had some insert and base sets in boxes or team bags, some plastic boxes filled with inserts and a couple big boxes with base.. I didn't really have set prices for them.
