Hi there,
We have some of the small boxes of authentic reproductions of the Light House Series Cigarette Cards by the Hassan Cigarette Company of New York which were produced exclusively for Younger & Associates. Are collectors interested in these decks of cards? What would folks be willing to pay for them?
We looked on eBay and did not see any. So we have no idea what to price them at if we sold them.
Thank you for your help.
Jerry and Donna

If it is a complete package of 50 different cards the package might be worth $20-$25. Individual cards might be worth $.25 each.

Thanks so much for your reply. Yes, we do have complete sets. And, of course, after we posted, we saw that someone has a set for $9.00 currently on eBay and that among the completed auctions, one set sold for $28.00 but another sold for under $5!
Thanks so much again. We may put one on eBay and see what happens -- at least the postage won't be too bad if it sells.

Beacons of the Bay.

The one that sold for $28 was a buy it now. There was also one that sold for $2 that was a bid. AS you said there is a bid going on now with a starting bid of $9 with no hits. Also what you missed was a buy it now for $198 or a opening bid of $49 also obviously with no hits.
Didn't see the one that sold for $5.

With all that said this is what I suggest. I would not put it out to bid. Obviously there is a want for these but not enough to demand two or more bidders to run the price up. Also you are running out of time for bidding, since I feel these are being bought for Christmas stocking stuffers.

"Buy it now" is the only way to go. I suggest around what Rich said $20 to $25
