Hello all! I got this vintage NASA GRUMMAN Aerospace model at work. It was being thrown out. I am trying to figure out how to price this. I see one listed on Ebay for $350 but the entire top is missing. The model I have is in pretty used condition and is missing a small piece and needs repair. It does, however, have the top.
I am asking you here because I am new at selling on Ebay and I always feel like I make mistakes in my pricing. 😛
Any info you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a peaceful day! Liz

Have you seen any that have sold?
If you’re willing to be patient and test the market, put $300 + “make offer” on it. See if anyone sends you offers.

NASA stuff is hot right now. If this model has any kind of history, I bet someone will buy it.

Jay, I thank you for your responses!
I answered hastily before because I needed to run out.
Anyway, there were no SOLDS on ebay but I did see sales on Worthpoint and an old auction estimate $700-$1,000. The item sold in 2013 for $350. That is what is making me wonder about correct pricing. Thanks again! Liz

I agree 100% with Temudgin: We also use Worthpoint and see the exact images and listings for the NASA Lunar Lander. You state you see them on Worthpoint and state prices so I assume you may have a subscription.
Our approach is to take the highest price sold on Worthpoint and then mark that up even more so you can run a few Sales from time to time and also take offers and give Free Shipping and you will still come out just a little underneath the higher price tiers you see on Worthpoint.
ALSO if you have a Premium Ebay store and above you get a FREE Terrapeak.com subscription. TP shows what has sold on Ebay over the past 12 months where as WP is anything older than a year back to about 10 years +/-.
TerraPeak shows 14 have sold in the last year, the highest being $2,050, the top 8 of those 14 have sold for all above $700 and the remaining 6 sold for between $675 to $265 all selling from Jan. of this year up until a few months ago.
You just need to “grade” yours as far as condition, flaws, what is included like original box, tags, paperwork, etc., etc.
Hope you have one of the $1,000 and up priced ones.
Hope this helps and Good Luck.

There were several that sold in the $1,000 range since the one for $2,000 sold. Mine also had a broken piece. Maybe should’ve listed it for more but after looking at the more recent SOLDS…priced mine at $1,400. Sold in about a week! Thanks for all of the input. Liz

Great sale, amazing item! I am listening to Charles Murray’s Apollo history now as it happens.

Huge congrats! Dont tell people at work that something they were going to trash was worth a mortgage payment 🙂

Thanks guys! I ALWAYS obsess about my pricing and second guess myself! Thanks for the positive comments! Have a super weekend! Liz
