Question - Cure Assemblage Box Set
Hi there. Forgive me if this is against the rules. The features on this forum are pretty limited, and I was unable to perform a search or refer to forum rules before making this post.
I am a diehard Cure fan. I went to my first Cure concert to see Head on the Door. That dates me a bit, huh? To the point... I have a baby girl on the way in November, and I would like to get my Baby Lennon some awesome stuff. Current finances are such that I am looking to liquidate a few of my prized Cure items. Up on the block will be my pinnacle piece, The Cure - Assemblage. It was autographed by Robert, if I remember correctly it was the July of 92 during the Wish tour. Also scored from that the item was there and a picture of Robert while in queue to get the autograph outside of the hotel. After getting it signed, it was shrink wrapped. Then the film was removed on only the opening side of the box. The fold out was never opened. The only wear is that side where 20 years of shuffling lightly wore the exposed edges. The seam of the shrink wrap started to split from fluctuating humidity, so it is reinforced with a piece of tape. The tape is not touching the actual box set.
This is not a for sale thread. What I am really looking for is a good, solid, reserve price for putting it up on eBay. I do not want to undercut myself or insult the prospective buyers. I was seeing very good condition sets go unsigned for $300-375 about five years ago, and averaging 200-250 any other time I was curious. I think there was some Cure activity that may have inflated demand at the time. The last I saw was recently posted for $192USD, and not a single bid was placed. That was disheartening. :(
With how rare this item is and with the autograph, it is almost impossible to know what it is worth. My question is what do you guys think it is worth? I am not in a position to post pictures, since I am at work. I am not even sure if we can here, but I can provide later upon request.
Again guys, I am not trying to solicit this. I just want to know what I have value-wise. Thank you very much in advance.
