So you have some Nintendo games and you’re wondering what they’re worth? First of all, lucky you! Nintendo games are almost always in demand either as toys or collectibles, so you can almost always find a buyer.
With that being said, there are a lot of factors that determine the value of any toy or collectible. Here’s how we’d suggest getting to a reasonable valuation:
Compare To Similar Nintendo Games That Recently Sold
The true value of any collectible or toy is simply how much someone else is willing to pay for it at any given time. Luckily with eBay’s Advanced Search, it’s easy to sort through completed listings of similar items. So our first suggestion is to look there to get a solid baseline value.
Adjust Based On Condition, Rarity And Timing
No two collectibles are the same, especially games. Some may have been heavily used, others may be in unopened mint condition. Obviously, the better condition it’s in, the better. This is why it’s so important to store your things properly! So take the similar listing you found on eBay and adjust that price up or down based on your game’s condition.
Adjust Based On Where You Plan On Selling It
Another variable you should consider is where you’re selling your Nintendo games, as this will significantly influence the selling price. If you sell to a pawn shop or collectibles store, you may sell for slightly under the intrinsic value you landed at, so you should adjust the price down to set expectations. If you’re selling directly to a well-known broker or individual buyer, you may be able to adjust slightly up.
