Title: Clack Valuation Thread
Post by: jdcarpe on Mon, 16 June 2014, 10:16:15
Wondering what your coveted Clack Factory artisan keycap is worth? Looking to sell, or maybe you want to trade for something of equal value? This is the thread for it. Ask your questions here, so others may give their opinions of what the current market value of Clacks may be.



PLEASE, NO DISCUSSION OF PROFITEERING HERE. IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THE SALE OR TRADE OF ARTISAN KEYCAPS ON THE SECONDARY MARKET AT VALUES HIGHER THAN RETAIL, OR ORIGINAL PURCHASE PRICE, THIS IS NOT THE THREAD YOU'RE LOOKING FOR. THIS THREAD IS A SAFE HAVEN FOR MEMBERS WHO WISH TO DISCUSS CLACK MARKET VALUES, WHICH ARE DRIVEN BY THE MARKET FORCES OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND, AND NOT BY A SENSE OF ALTRUISM OR OBLIGATION.

Any out-of-scope discussion will very likely be moderated out of this thread. You have been warned.






BunnyLake's General Price Structure Guidelines:

there are really only 3 price structures to be aware of

retail price
general aftermarket price
special circumstance price

a brief pricing guide to the general aftermarket prices (as of June 2014):

blanks/ f2s - 75- 100
general single colour/3d - 100 - 125
rare single colours/ common multi colors - 150 - 175
rare multi colour - 200 - 250

90% of clack sales will fall under either retail prices or those after market brackets

the other 10% of sales are special circumstances, where the discussion of these prices is pointless, they are dictated by either someone wanting to pay above what a clack is generally worth to acquire it in a timely fashion, or where someone is willing to pay more to persuade someone to sell something they ordinarily wouldnt want to under the current market pricing






Below is the old pricing guide from the Clack Info Thread (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=39794.0). The same warning applies. Please use this thread for pricing discussions instead of the info thread.

Secondhand Market Prices (From the Clack Info Thread)
WARNING: THIS IS NOT DEFINITIVE PRICING FOR SECOND-HAND CLACKS. This is simply a list I’ve compiled of what you might expect to pay for a Clack if you buy from the classifieds. There will be dates provided so you know the timeline of the prices. If you want retail prices, refer to that section. I cannot control what you spend or how much someone sells their Clacks at.

The prices here are a window from October 2012 to April 2013. I will no longer be updating this section. Please consider this a snapshot in time, showing some secondhand market prices.

Prices are in $USD unless otherwise noted. Please check to see if the pricing is for an MX/Topre/Bucking Spring cap as this may affect the price. I've provided links so that you can double check.

I saw my first eBay auction of MX Clacks recently (March 2013) (http://www.ebay.com/csc/sutthi69/m.html?_ipg=&_from=&_nkw=&_armrs=1&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc). Thanks to phetto for pointing them out here (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=41136.0). According to Glissant, the clacks were part of net2522's collection. Just as a heads up, I don't know enough about the 420 clack names so I'll use what was posted in the auction. Please check the pictures to see which ones were sold. The names are different from the Wiki. The follow clacks went for these prices:

There's pricing discussions in the Clack Info Thread and other threads. Since I don't really follow pricing anymore, I don't feel I'm qualified to support the continued discussion in that thread. We're just trying to centralize the discussion somewhere so people can get a feel for the pricing. Especially since the Classifieds threads are often nuked without their prices.

It's not putting them on a pedestal as much as trying to keep the info in a location. If you think that the mere existence of the thread is doing so, I think it's just being silly. That's my opinion. You're all welcome to pay what you like. That's why this is here. To gauge what ya'll would like to pay. Nothing more.

It's not even like these prices are a good barometer. The frequency of people selling off collections has fallen off a cliff since 2014, I've only seen a handful and they've been for crazy asking prices (Cactux, duc_nckt and this week Deviruki). Given that the 4grabs sales have slowed as well, 1+ year old data isn't exactly relevant. Unless it's a private sale, you'll find out what it's worth pretty quickly by just making it available on the classifieds.

there is no need for an open clack valuation thread

there are really only 3 price structures to be aware of

retail price
general aftermarket price
special circumstance price

the OP of this thread in my opinion should just include the following info

a list of retail prices for clacks in current and past sale

a brief pricing guide to the general aftermarket prices, something like this

blanks/ f2s - 75- 100
general single colour/3d - 100 - 125
rare single colours/ common multi colors - 150 - 175
rare multi colour - 200 - 250

90% of clack sales will fall under either retail prices or those after market brackets

the other 10% of sales are special circumstances, where the discussion of these prices is pointless, they are dictated by either someone wanting to pay above what a clack is generally worth to acquire it in a timely fashion, or where someone is willing to pay more to persuade someone to sell something they ordinarily wouldnt want to under the current market pricing

what really then needs to be discussed is perhaps the rarity or perceived rarity of certain clacks and what bracket in the aftermarket pricing that falls in to, but 95% of that can be done via common sense

That's good info, sir. Added it to the OP.

If someone wants to list the retail prices from recent or current sales, I'm happy to add that to the OP as well.

I personally after owning just the one clack being a 3D Topre one I have no use of, I only got it on impulse I can say I'm not hugely fussed about getting more I feel people more want due to the fact its almost a status symbol, I myself would say I'm guilty of this after getting mine but almost as soon as getting it and looking at it I was like yeah it's nice but nothing to spend this much money on people are asking for it, I would say to those looking to get them question if you really do want them, if you do then go ahead and get it as the price should not matter if you truly want it but to all that just want them for the sake of having one, its not all its cracked up to be the main disappointment I had was they are made from a hard plastic I always assumed they where a soft resin like plastic carved out, but they look very much molded, anyway that's my opinion though.

Anyway as a collector of other items I don't think this is the worst I have spent much more on trading cards when I was a child after all and those are just printed paper, but I got my charzard in the end :p

Anyway as this is a valuation thread I very recently got my first clack being a 3D Topre skull, at £55 including next day delivery before 1PM with insurance, this was done over ebay and can provide details on it if you need, also £55 at the time of buying that roughly worked out to $88 give or take a little

Strangely enough I've found Clack prices on eBay to be fairly reasonable in the past, seen a bunch of skulls go for 2/3 of the price they fetch here.

Strangely enough I've found Clack prices on eBay to be fairly reasonable in the past, seen a bunch of skulls go for 2/3 of the price they fetch here.

That's what I have seen, but for what I paid and with the shipping next day guaranteed before 1PM included in the price I find that highly reasonable and it did indeed come at 11AM the next day, I think it would be nicer if the postage cost was included in the fairly high price, although my situation is different from most though as the fellow was from the UK so it was fairly easy to get that post done.

Perhaps this thread should be used for that. To post prices a Clack sold for.

I very much agree with this last statement, well said though with that I couldn't put it better rather than having it as a ask for a price just list what they have sold for, giving people a idea of what to expect.

This thread will be a "What is the hgihest my cap has sold for" resource then. smh
Maybe but I think the aim of this is more, to see if say one is getting sold, is it close to what the average price is or have the just made a number up, but again I think a lot of us are thinking a bit too far into this ohh well :)

Thank you for your answers! I guess shipping to Sweden is about 25$ with tracking so I guess It's a pretty fair price!

Your pics are terrible.  But it is most likely a depth black.  It's probably worth more like $100 to $120.  You should sell it in Classified thread before your wife throws it out again.

Hmm, digi thinks this is a fake post from ripster.  I dunno.  It seems real to me.  But I am easily fooled.

dudes scamming, be warned. I along with other users have sent him a payment for the clack. Had a friend message him on reddit to see if he is still selling the clack. He denies ever receiving any payments and is still selling it (if he even has it) if anyone has sent this guy money i have screenshot proof that he is still selling it and accepting payments. Luckily i sent as goods, well i learned my lesson.

I think for all future clacks member to member transaction, we all should send as goods, so we can file a dispute. In Malaysia, Paypal disallow sending as gifts, so I have no choice but to always send as goods. In retrospect, maybe this is the reason Paypal implement this rules.

I hope you are getting your money back, Hipster.

And looks like digi is right!

Always buy everything as goods, especially high value items.  It's why I send invoices for all my caps and anything I sell.  While I know I would never con someone out of their money, the invoice and payment as goods gives them more protection...though I'm sure it will bite me in the ass someday.

Additionally, it's easier to make sure that it's insured and you'll get your money if it's lost in the mail if you pay as goods.

I'm still surprised that he "sold it" once and hipster posted about it, and a 2nd(or more) person(s) didnt even say anything or find it strange that hipster already said he paid for it until almost 48 hours after the matter.  You would think the people trying to snipe clacks in this thread would keep up to date with the thread they sniped from.

And maybe we should get rid of this thread?  It gives new, anonymous users an easy, high profile way to scam people.  This thread is stickied in Classifieds, and I'm sure anyone interested in Clacks has this thread on watch as well.  And there will be few people who can resist responding to someone who comes in and asks something like "how much is my EK tricolor skull worth?".

I think when it comes to high value or un-replaceable stuff you've got to insist on goods payment with tracking. At the end of the day so long as you go with goods you're secure, Paypal doesn't give a **** about protecting sellers.

I called Paypal this morning and escalated my case immediately using this forum as evidence of multiple people being scammed. The agent said if the seller does not respond to the escalated case, I will have the money refunded to my account on July 20th at the latest. So, for the record, it's worth calling and escalating.

When I opened the dispute it said I had to wait a week to escalate, and that the seller has a week to respond. Given we all know this is a scam if you call you should be able to escalate right away so that paypal contacts the seller, not you. If he refuses to respond there will be a default judgment in your favor. Given this guy obviously has no legs to stand on, the sooner you escalate, the sooner you will have your money back.

Well, I didn't want to discourage you.  Acetrak's mint gum Fn may be unavailable, but there are other ones out there in the world.  If you want to collect Clacks, then you have to find them out there in the wild.  CC made more than one mint gum Fn key.  Your job is to go find who has them.

Yup, it can.  Most I've paid is $50 for Octopink shipped from Australia.  All others have been trades or retail.  I only have 3 now (I think), but the chief rule about getting at retail is don't be a **** and help people out.  I wouldn't have gotten mine if I didn't make content and help people out.

Yes, and he covered that with the "if you have a network" part of his comment. People don't sell clacks at retail to regular ol' users around here. I've been trying for over a year and have yet to pay retail for a clack or bro cap.

Random acts of charity do happen on this website, but let's not kid ourselves, they're the exception, not the rule. For every clack and bro that sells openly on the classifieds for retail or near, there are dozens that sell for the markup price. The time investment required on this forum to be lucky enough to happen onto a clack at retail AND be the first person to PM the seller is simply not viable for most people. The odds of the exact cap one is looking for being available at retail on the classifieds is like hitting the keyboard nerd lottery, it's just not going to happen for the majority of users. When someone comes in here asking what they're going to have to spend to obtain a specific clack, odds are they are not going to find the one they want for retail price. The people with the network to accomplish this don't need to post in this thread.

Bragging about getting them at retail is kind of a **** move to the average user, just as much as bragging about buying one out at full price is a reminder of the price-barrier. 

Having someone hook you up at retail is impossible for the newcomer here.  The people without piles of posts and deep connections to the inner circle aren't going to get handouts from the special club. 

The only recent large-scale sale of clacks at low price was via bunny, and that was still a "this goes to who I says" affair.  THERE IS ALSO NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.  Not everyone is owed a clack, that's just how life is.  Bunny's sale did go nicely and people seemed to not get too salty about the whole situation when they missed out.  However, to say that everyone has fair game at snatching a clack secondhand at retail pricing is delusional.

Understand that clack pricing follows a bell curve:  some people let em go at retail, some let the auctions fly, but most people sell em kinda in-between.  That should be the real way to set expectations.

Right. You need something to get a Clack or Bro. And that something can be lots and lots of patience, if you want to buy one at retail, or lots and lots of money.

Then in the context of this thread why are we telling someone who is interested in grabbing a Night Owl Clack that they're obtainable at retail prices? The retail price is irrelevant in this context because no one is going to sell a relatively unknown user with no network to speak of that clack at that price unless they do so to make a point after having us all say it's not possible.

We're not. It's a discussion thread, with many people giving their own opinions. That just happened to be one opinion given. No one can "tell" anyone with 100% confidence what the actual value they can obtain X Clack at. That's the point of having a discussion thread, as opposed to a single post with listed prices.

Wellp.  I had a whole thing written out and the internet ate it.  :|  I'm not interested in re-writing it, only to have it dismissed like this, so here's the abridged version.

Basically, if you want a clack, be patient and get involved in the community.  The opportunities will present themselves.  If you want to throw money at them, that's fine (and will work), but it's not sustainable and IMO isn't nearly as interesting.

Honestly, no one has to justify why they choose to sell to who they do. I get it. But it's disingenuous for someone like HoffmanMyster to pretend that the average Geekhack user is ever going to be able to obtain desired artisan caps at retail prices through the classifieds. He has a network and a collection to work with.

Sorry about being the person that initiates the debate. I was throwing out an over simplified conclusion to make the whole clack hunting game easier to understand for redskull. Just as JD said, getting a clack requires lots of patience or lots of money. I chose the money approach because that's easier and I have a sick priority for spending money, but that's just me.

I did no such pretending, thank you.  I explained myself above if you had read my reply.  This is a clack valuation thread in general, not for one specific group of people.  I am contributing my experiences to add to the entire spectrum of data to be collected.  If everyone in my position stayed quiet, the data would be skewed - just like it would be skewed if only the people who paid retail prices shared their experiences here.

And I honestly don't have a "network".  What I have is called friends, patience, and luck.  If you wish to discuss this topic further I'd be happy to carry on in PMs, but I think it's probably best to leave it at this for now in the thread here.  Feel free to respond to my post here (I don't intend to force myself to get the "last word"), but I will respond via PM if you do.   :thumb:

Look, I have about as good a "network" for buying/selling/trading Clacks as it gets.  I dare say nobody has a better one.  Probably somebody has one as good as mine, but not better.  I'm not bragging, I'm just telling you guys that I know what I'm talking about, and what I'm talking about is that NOBODY is going to sell you a Clack at the original price.  There is no secret network of Clack owners selling Clacks for $35 to each other.  Maybe somebody like bunnylake will sell one for $50, once or twice in the Classifieds to make a big splash, but that is to burnish his image in the community (and there is nothing wrong with that), but you cannot expect to pay the original retail price to get a Clack.  That is just not realistic.  At this time, almost every Clack in existence has changed hands several times, or so it seems, and after each transaction the price has gone up, because each person added a few dollars to the price he paid when he sold it.  Is this a horrible thing?  No.   Now, there are some people out there who got Clacks in the very beginning for $8 and sold them for $80, but, I think by and large the people selling Clacks are not making huge profits off them anymore.

However, with that said, figuring out a "reasonable" price nowadays seems to be pretty hard.  This thread is a good idea to try to figure out what a "reasonable" price should be.  I don't have the answer for what's reasonable, but right now a Nightowl for $200 is a good price.  I can tell you that.  Even $250 is not "crazy".

That is probably the most realistic response I've read in this thread. I'm not discarding what others said but from the experiences I've had getting my hands on the few clacks I do have, it's just the way it is. Yes, there have been and will be some very few occasions where someone will get one for much less than what they normally sell for but the majority of the time, it just doesn't work that way.

Big +1 to all of this. The people who have the large quantities of clacks aren't going to be throwing out random numbers. I know someone else has a spreadsheet with every clack (is it you ethos, i forget), who they bought it from, and how much they paid.  It's usually the owners of a single clack who throw huge fluctuations into the price market by dropping a single skull with a huge asking price.  Secondhand clacks trading hands amongst bigger collectors do tend to draw a little blood from people not wanting to lose money, but there are not usually huge jumps in price from one owner to the next.

Re: nightowl prices.  cactux had a Topre one up for sale back in Feb.  It sat there for about a month at $200, then sat for at least a week at $180, and finally sold when he dropped the price again down to $165.  An MX one sold for $180 earlier in the year.

Clack popularity may have jumped up a bit after CC's recent sales, and people do like Nightowl, but I'd say ~$250 for Nightowl is still a bit much.

How much patience do you have? That particular one will cost a **** ton of ego-stroking, "geekwhacking", circlejerking, idol worship, soul-selling, and second hand bitterness.  You may even get to touch it soneday after you're well invested.

And by that, he means stroking Ripster's genitalia. :p

not to keep on rustling, but i don't think i will ever pay inflated prices for cc's and bb's. don't get me wrong, i love them, they are unique and nice, but that many $$$ IMO can be put to better and more satisfying use keyboard or non-keyboard related. again, no offense to those who paid a lot for them. some profit on top should be OK but many folds over original prices are just too much.

+1

Two of mine I've received directly from CC at retail.  Two I've been cough cough splutter cough.  The third one I got from classifieds at slightly above retail (not quite double - given this was my first CC Skull, I didn't complain).

There are so many colours and styles out there, no-one is going to be able to collect all of them.

Be happy with the one/s you have, or eagerly look forward to the thrill of receiving your first one.

This post sounds more like Clack therapy than anything.

Paying second hand prices and assuming an average price of $175 per clack, you're looking at $13,125. All things considered, I would imagine you could pretty easily end up crossing the $15k mark if you went after some of the more rare/desirable keys like Vaders, Tri-Colors, and Slushies.

Paying close-to-retail prices, you can probably estimate on roughly $40/ea, which puts you at about $3K. Unless you've got god-like patience AND luck, I don't see you amassing an entire keyboard of clacks with close-to-retail pricing.

At a minimum you'd be looking at $30 retail * 75 = $2,250.

As a rough average, assuming you can get a fair percentage for under $100, plus the remainder for over $100, an average of $100 each would come to $7,500.

If you want rare ones all over, you'd be looking at $200 each, for a total of $15,000.

If you want one-offs, or really rare ones, expect around $400 each, for a total of $30,000.

If you looked at the first page it's a guide of past sales, not speculative opinion.

State some recent sales of stuff at that rate and yes, otherwise things with a 50 dollar swing are just a blind guess.

Things like "any CC at less than $100, save for a solid color blank" is a pretty sweeping statement.

Start there work forwards.  Track where clacks have gone, moved, and how much they sold for if they changed hands from the new buyers.  This sale established a pretty good idea of market value and people tend to err towards it out of familiarity or habit.

That's my baseline whenever I'm making offers.  Look at ebay, look through post histories, do your homework.  It's not easy or precise, but there are things to look for.

Part of the problem is that people exponentially charge slightly more and more, realizing people will still be willing to pay slightly above the going norm, which in turn makes that slight increase in price the new norm. Perpetuous ad infinitum.

I could tell you what is a fair price. I could tell you the maximum amount I would pay for the various clack variations and tiers or rarity. But all this information is pointless since the prices are not set at some concrete standard, thus making this thread once again utterly pointless.

Is anyone an expert on clack prices? They go for wildly varying rates all the time. There's not really any way to place values other than a sweeping statement.

Edit: Not to mention that a lot of sales happen behind closed doors, or posts are taken down after items are sold.

Everyone is there own expert in clack pricing. Some, they're worth $100+, others wouldn't buy at retail (maybe except to resell to people willing to pay)

Part of the problem is that people exponentially charge slightly more and more, realizing people will still be willing to pay slightly above the going norm, which in turn makes that slight increase in price the new norm. Perpetuous ad infinitum.

I could tell you what is a fair price. I could tell you the maximum amount I would pay for the various clack variations and tiers or rarity. But all this information is pointless since the prices are not set at some concrete standard, thus making this thread once again utterly pointless.
Yes, we've all heard your rhetoric regarding this matter ad nauseum. And yet, somehow, some members actually find the information useful. Go figure.

You know you don't have to read it if it makes you so upset.

I think threads like this one can only encourage price gauging because instead of making it an 'Artisan Valuation Thread' it's a Clack one. Thus perpetuating the beliefs that his keys are the only ones worth making a reference guide for, or that his keys are the only reference guide worthy of being stickied here for all to see.

Lowest price would be the most common.

Hack Orange -> huge batch was made, I think
Mintgum -> available several times as singles and as sets
3D -> available from multiple sales as well

"unpopular" is hard to say, as beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that crap. :P

Dang 350 for a salute?  I don't even know the rare ones, these are just the ones I recognize.  Would it matter if they were all topre?

I guess next would be the:
jack o lantern
miz kite


I don't even know the rest of the tri or rare bi colors
rhino?  Night owl? senzunite?

As far as I know, "Rhino" (I believe this is an unofficial name for the white skull with red eyes) and Senzunite are one of a kinds. I don't think Night Owl is quite as rare as Mr Friday, but it's still quite sought after.

Bros are very hard to price because nobody wants to let go of them and also bro bans people if they sell retail won bots at those prices. Any v2 I've bought aftermarket has been $80-100 if that confirms your guess. I let mine go for retail OR trade 1:1 for a v1. Though, I buy them for $80-100 sadly. It is just the price people let them go at.. :o

There is also that rule, you can sell it for what you bought it for. Seems reasonable to me.

Brobots generally don't have aftermarket price apart from their retail price since Bro Caps discourages people profiting from his works and disallows them from his future buys. Common clacks and common bots probably trade 1on1 and but on rarest items individual tastes vary a lot. Think what bro cap you would like to get and you think would be as desirable item as drunken skull and give it a go on classifieds.

Brobots generally don't have aftermarket price apart from their retail price since Bro Caps discourages people profiting from his works and disallows them from his future buys.

I'm currently looking for a green Bots such as the Toxic V2 but not sure if it's an equal trade for it. Are there any 2 or more bots than I can trade for a Drunken Skull?

One thing to consider when making trades is that, while Bro Caps are commonly traded for other Bros at "retail," they sell at retail for about the same as Clacks. So, while you paid aftermarket price for your Clack, when trading for Bros, you should consider the original retail price of both your Clack and the desired Bro Cap. Your Drunken Skull isn't necessarily more or less valuable than a Bro Cap of a certain design.

I'm not sure. When I bought my Dark Lord, I paid $250 for it, but at that time, they were very few and far between. Now, there seem to be more popping up for sale, culminating with that stupidly priced one.

I tried to sell mine for $200, but mostly in hopes that I could turn it around quickly, even if I was taking a loss. Unfortunately, it never sold... Seems like I'm getting some interest now though. We'll see.

So in my opinion, $250 is probably closer to actual value, though $200 is right around there.

If that's a trade you desire, then it is a good trade. The Trophy Silver hasn't been out too long, so the value is what you paid for it so far. I can't even say the desire is there, as all the threads I've seen these days ask for the Trophy Gold over the Silver.

In conclusion, I'm sure you're smart enough now to make a trade. It's all up to whether you desire the other item over the one you have, and possibly a consideration of how much the other person desires what you have. It doesn't always have to be about getting the absolute most you can for it, especially if you and the other person SPENT the same amount on the items.

Man I can't seem to work out a fair trade on the Trophy Silver. Maybe it's just me but I think it's worth just a little more than an average solid color clack.

If only it was MX, I'd love to not have to trade :(

I'd agree with you on that.  Once people see some sexy combos with it, it will become more popular. Personally, I think it looked killer with black caps and either a white case or black case.

Selling is basically never the thing to do if your goal is to trade to something else, as people always prefer to trade, and opportunities to buy them are few and far between.

It's worth whatever anyone is willing to trade for it. I don't see why it would be worth LESS than a skull. It's more rare than the normal skull designs and I personally think that it looks really cool. At the very least I think you should be able to trade it for most single color skulls.

EK is the only one that is easier for international buyers to purchase.

Let's just say I've stayed up till 3,4,5 am in the morning to try and buy clacks from 4grabs, just to miss them by mere seconds.

I do hope I get in on one of those sales, it'll be my first clack in 3 years :thumb:

how much is this worth in clack skulls?

is it easier to sell it for money to buy a clack skull or to trade it for a clack skull?

Selling is basically never the thing to do if your goal is to trade to something else, as people always prefer to trade, and opportunities to buy them are few and far between.

Darn I've always thought cash is king. After trying to get in on sales for over 2 years I just feel that luck isn't on my side.
Can I trade this for clack skulls? Or is it worth too little for trades...
It's worth whatever anyone is willing to trade for it. I don't see why it would be worth LESS than a skull. It's more rare than the normal skull designs and I personally think that it looks really cool. At the very least I think you should be able to trade it for most single color skulls.

(Don't let anyone message you and convince you it is not worth anything)

You're right about how great it looks, but I do want to get one of those skulls on my keyboard someday, and the wait is just killing me.

I'd think it's worth somewhere between f2 and normal single color clacks, am i right?

Sometimes people refuse to trade for whatever stupid reason, or offer a trade and then back out at the last minute (you people know who you are  >:D ) and you get more and more frustrated over a 3 month period until you just decide to sell it.

It's missed opportunities too - if only I had joined GH a year earlier than I did.  Or even just 6 months!

I honestly don't think it's(Gummyrot) any more common than Ruby, or whatever the blue translucent is called. It's just been released more recently so it just seems like there are more of them because of the ebb and flow of new and old members on GH.

The Listerine and Ice/clear color skulls are extremely rare though.

Gummyrot skull isn't as expensive because the other trans skulls are not sold in 4Grab or EK sale. I would price Gummyrot skull at $150 - $200 range. The others are priceless. One Topre trans red skull went for $405 on eBay, for your reference.

Guess this is an updated list:
blanks/ f2s - 100
general single colour/3d - 125-150
rare single colours/ common multi colors - 175 - 200
rare multi colour - 250 - 300+

Whoa they went up.. When I was collecting Clacks it was blanks / f2s $80-100, single / 3d $85-105.

Ah no clue.  If anyone has a pic, please share. :)  I'm guessing a GID would be more greenish like the Noct skull, though?  The pics above still look like Mochi White, though.

For some reason I thought it was you that posted the pic.  Maybe I'm going crazy.  :))

Didn't you post a pic of a WASD set on a GON (maybe with Dolch)?  If so, then that's the picture I'm thinking of and I guess it's not GID.   :confused:

Ah that was Fallout Yellow (http://i.imgur.com/oV2isGI.jpg), which is a translucent fluorescent yellow/green.  It's not GID.
These and the ones in your profile picture are total copies of K3KC's first original design

Even if we jerk two at a time there are what, 1000 people who entered the sale? So that's 400x whatever the mean jerk time is.

I mean it doean't matter, but hypothetically time is equal to 400 total jerks at a two **** rate.

Unless you jerk off four guys at a time and then we can cut that in half.

Not looking to sell. Mainly inquring about value for trading purposes. I really like the Bluetrabe, the Freedom Eagle, Darkside, and all sorts of Sticky Icky.

So anyone have an idea of general valuation these two?
Title: Re: Clack Valuation Thread
Post by: Belfong on Thu, 06 November 2014, 22:47:12
If you are trading then don't look at value but look at what you like. It's easier and more sane that way. If you are comparing monetary value, it's gonna be a never ending search and comparison - can anyone get a trade done at all that way?

What moose said.

As for trading, it's up to what you and the seller think is a fair trade.  Freedom Eagle is a lot more rare and was a lot more expensive that Bluetrabe, so it might be both caps + cash to try and get it....if you can find someone willing to give it up.

I'd really love for someone to help me out with this. Thanks.

Looks like it to me

HPE and nubbinator have pointed out the obvious answer which is that yes they are valued equally, but to add to that, I don't see a way for anyone to know the aftermarket value of something that no one actually has possession of and hasn't been traded/sold yet.  We could speculate and say that since it has glowy eyes it's worth X, but it may end up that there are loads of them and the "3D effect" could happen here.  Who knows!  :P  And topre vs MX prices are hard to predict too.  In some cases, topre is valued more, and in some it's valued less.

He meant the old Night Owl, not the MKII. Even then, I think there is higher demand for old Night Old MX vs Topre. It might be worth slightly more. I think 1-1 trade is fair though.

I traded another rare green(Pea Soup) for machine(in MX,) confirmed there does not seem to be many of them. One of the rarer solid colors I think.
From the trade offers I got it seems P1 Purple(4 offers) is more common than Yolk Yellow(2 offers) is more common than Machine Green(1 offer) based solely off of 10 trade offers.

I don't think that's reasonable. Someone may not agree with me, but even if F2's are considered cheap and common, you can hardly find them under $100. Candy corn looks great on its own, but it doesn't go well with anything. A reasonable price for Candy Corn is ~$200 and that is about the same price for two single color. I would much rather keep two single color clacks that could go well with other keysets than getting a Candy Corn. Of course whether it's a reasonable trade depends on individual interest, but if you can't find the trade you want, this is probably why.

IMO, dollar-wise it seems fair (at least if considering F2s - it gets lopsided if you consider rare single colours), but I'd agree with you that it may be a tough trade to work out.  I'd probably prefer to keep the two single colours myself.  I think this is basically what you were saying, but just worded slightly different.  :P

I don't think any have been resold yet. I actually expect it to go for only slightly above MSRP since they were already expensive and there didn't seem to be a huge demand for the design (even though it's badass.)

I would guess around $200, but who knows? Not enough data yet.

That was one asshat on Reddit. I wouldn't put too much stock in that sale, considering he's probably going to wind up in CC's blacklist since he openly admitted he cheated the system. They might go for $300+, but I wouldn't base current speculation off of that.

$200 would be way, way too low based on the limited nature of the Freedom Eagle, and the cost at retail versus others, including the Bluetrabe. I highly doubt anyone would ever part with a Freedom Eagle for less than $500 cash, but that is just speculation on my part.

Based on the fact that the Freedom Eagle was four times the cost of the Bluetrabe at retail, and the fact that the reddit asshat claims to have received an offer of $350 for the Bluetrabe, I joked before that the true aftermarket value of the Freedom Eagle by extrapolation therefore would be $1400. :)

The Mummy II is one of my absolute favorite keys and the prospect of never being able to get more makes me that much more possessive of the few I managed to get ahold of. I think HP going missing means more people are going to want to keep the KBKs they've got which will end up driving their trade value up.

It is very hard to find, I managed to get the one you see there & consider myself lucky. It's one of my favorite solid/single color Skulls color wise. The Dark Teal is a real beauty  :cool: - However I've not seen another in my collecting before or after I acquired it. It's definitely very rare for a solid color CC skull, if anyone else currently has the Dark Teal as well as me I'd be interested to hear of it's "brother"  Clacks.  ;)

Any more than that you're getting raped.

But you will never get one. Mark my words. Most of the folks who had that color are gone forever from GH, and the people who do won't trade them for any less than an unfair trade (someone wanted my OG Tri for a Turquoise. Riiiight.)

Also - Topre only, so it's inherently inferior.

This is what I don't understand about this thread. It ultimately promotes the inflation of prices anyway. Even if it's strictly used for helping noobs not get ripped off it's still advising them that something's worth more than it should. Even if its sentimental value - it still shouldn't have an increased price.

Personally I think this thread would be better not existing at all. Unless there were threads that would pop up constantly? And that's why it was made? Maybe they should be blocked too. Imo it would make for a better situation.

I know it's a tough subject because of all of the implications and factors towards the product but, really, just the existence of this thread goes against what I'm sure most vets believe regarding the inflation, flipping and selling of clacks.

Just my 2pence.
Now the thread may resume.

There are 3 sorts of people at GH, the ones that have been here for a while and don't want you to make a profit from clacks (probably won all their ccs at sales). The newer ones that desperately wants a clack so they go crazy for one on classifieds begging for a clack at all costs and the ones that wins a clack at the raffle just to flip it and make money.

I think a good standing point should be:
Don't sell a clack for a higher price than you bought it for.

It isn't really believable that someone buys a clack for 200$ that he should resell it for 50$ but if  you win at a clack sale and you sell it for 200$, you are a douche.

Not to mention that while the "best" price for a clack is retail price, the truth is that they are frequently sold for much higher prices.  That's what this thread is really for, is to inform people as to what is fair for aftermarket prices (regardless of how much we might want them to all be sold at retail).  Since various clacks sell for wide ranges of prices, it's valuable information to have.

IMO, the remarks of "sell it for retail" and such are still somewhat valuable as a reminder that that's kind of the ideal state that most of us would like to see.  It's not going to happen overnight, if at all, but it's what a lot of us would like to see.

^^ Above is my personal opinion ^^

As for this thread existing, it exists because the price check and simple questions threads were getting overrun with questions about clacks and caused a lot of drama over pricing and the like, so it was warranted that a dedicated topic should exist.  The moderation team is not interested in regulating the discussion of this topic so much as we are interested in keeping discussions civil and organized.  This is much easier to do with a dedicated thread to keep the other threads on topic.  Despite this thread still being fairly controversial at times, it is contained here so if you want to avoid the drama it's quite easy, and that was part of the goal.

Hope that makes sense.   :)

I think a good standing point should be:
Don't sell a clack for a higher price than you bought it for.

It isn't really believable that someone buys a clack for 200$ that he should resell it for 50$ but if  you win at a clack sale and you sell it for 200$, you are a douche.
'

Not to mention that while the "best" price for a clack is retail price, the truth is that they are frequently sold for much higher prices.  That's what this thread is really for, is to inform people as to what is fair for aftermarket prices (regardless of how much we might want them to all be sold at retail).  Since various clacks sell for wide ranges of prices, it's valuable information to have.

IMO, the remarks of "sell it for retail" and such are still somewhat valuable as a reminder that that's kind of the ideal state that most of us would like to see.  It's not going to happen overnight, if at all, but it's what a lot of us would like to see.

^^ Above is my personal opinion ^^

As for this thread existing, it exists because the price check and simple questions threads were getting overrun with questions about clacks and caused a lot of drama over pricing and the like, so it was warranted that a dedicated topic should exist.  The moderation team is not interested in regulating the discussion of this topic so much as we are interested in keeping discussions civil and organized.  This is much easier to do with a dedicated thread to keep the other threads on topic.  Despite this thread still being fairly controversial at times, it is contained here so if you want to avoid the drama it's quite easy, and that was part of the goal.

Hope that makes sense.   :)

Yea, totally makes sense. That is the only logical reason I could think for the thread still being alive, the number of posts that would follow "is this worth x"

The thing is. If the thread didn't exist and any posts that were to arise were simply replied with an obligatory "x is worth retail" it would eventually drill the general rule that if someone is trying to sell something for more than retail then "no it is not worth it." Additionally, if they're really concerned about the price are they really going to turn to the seller and say "this thread said its not worth that" and then the seller will change his mind? No. And lastly, as you said, those guys that will just buy it anyway? Doubtful they're using this thread.

I just think it would be better for the future of the community, especially with the rise is newcomers, That this kind of thread and information wasn't so readily available and in such an encouraging matter.

I don't know, its an interesting situation. The only thing we can do is set a better example - and this thread doesn't do that.

In all honesty. I've never actually witnessed a situation where someone has blatantly flipped a clack and therefore have never seen this thread have such a negative effect. It was just something I was interested to discuss.

As you said, this thread was deemed necessary as some point and doesn't require too much upkeep but it certainly seems like a catalyst for some people's opinions and sometimes contradictory with it being used.

how much are the silver checkkeys worth? I have not seen any sold except one so far...
Those were likely overpriced.
Every click clack above retail is overpriced  ;)

This is what I don't understand about this thread. It ultimately promotes the inflation of prices anyway. Even if it's strictly used for helping noobs not get ripped off it's still advising them that something's worth more than it should. Even if its sentimental value - it still shouldn't have an increased price.

Personally I think this thread would be better not existing at all. Unless there were threads that would pop up constantly? And that's why it was made? Maybe they should be blocked too. Imo it would make for a better situation.

I know it's a tough subject because of all of the implications and factors towards the product but, really, just the existence of this thread goes against what I'm sure most vets believe regarding the inflation, flipping and selling of clacks.

Just my 2pence.
Now the thread may resume.

The biggest problem is imo that some people have so much money that they can make an unresisitible offer, I know of a bluetrabe which sold for 400$ not too long ago which is almost 700% profit from ori price.

I have no problem with reselling from a sale, I do however have a problem with some people thinking a 600% or more markup is OK.
That's not OK and it sounds moot when I say I won't pay more than a 400% markup, but you have to draw a line in the sand or newer folks will keep thinking it's cool to inflate the aftermarket prices further.
Title: Re: Clack Valuation Thread
Post by: nubbinator on Sun, 07 December 2014, 17:40:10
Any mark up after first sale is ridiculous.  The only "markup" I think is justifiable after buying directly from the seller is the original cost + shipping + cost of shipping again.  After that first resale, the price, including shipping, should not inflate.  You did nothing to add value to the piece so you don't deserve to make a profit on it when there's a line of people wanting one.  You're a scumbag if you buy just to flip.  Those are no better than people who buy out the hot holiday toy of the year, then flip it on eBay or Craigslist to desperate parents at 300-500% over retail.

I'm outspoken on this issue though and I doubt I'll make a huge impact on anything. 

Anyways, this discussion is taking a turn for another thread, not one that really belongs here.

i'm always with you on this matter nubs. not to mention, that the clack is 'used', so used item prices should go down instead of jacked up insanely high.

I have been ghosting everything click clack since 2011 now and the prices are literally a laughing stock. After coming to terms that i would never get my hands on an "Authentic" click clack key for my HHKP2 i have practically become a recluse and have even considered getting into my old molding. Which realistically could benefit my old mans sewing MFG. Figuring i convinced myself that i was going to start a prototype GH exclusive all in one peripherals bag and got caught up with life the adventure of learning a new craft (instead of staring at another bag in a sea of 'quite possibly' a million others) could propel one to say not "copy" but come up with ones own trade mark keycaps. Face it, topre caps need some love.

On topic: How much are the original black back drop, white skull press with red eye topre caps going for now a days anyway? That is still my dream HHKP2 ESC key...It would be the red translucent one if they ever decided to make a HHKP3 with some kind of LED backdrop. How sick would a HHKP2 be with a white LED backdrop, PBS white/black checker board design be? Sure wish i knew how to solder or wasn't sitting with permanent jazz hands from adderall to work with small wiring and soldering rofl.

That would be the "OG Tri" Clack, and it's going for quite a bit, if you can find one.  I don't remember specific prices, since it's been awhile since I saw one trade hands publicly, but "a few hundred dollars" would be a good starting point.  ;)  And apparently prices have skyrocketed in the last few weeks with eBay sales proving that common single colour clacks are now selling for $150-$200.   :confused:  So really, anything can happen.   >:D

eBay fees, for one.  I have also noticed a huge disconnect between eBay prices and real market prices on many items.

Yep.  And even when we had auctions here, they were noticeable higher priced than non-auctions.  But the fact of the matter is that the caps did sell for those prices, so we can't simply ignore them.  IMO, they just deserve an asterisk by them to denote "auction".  They are still legitimate sales though.

I'm just sad I'd only get $175 for Octopink.  Who am I kidding, I'd never sell it for that much unless Clack was getting a massive chunk of the action.

Sorry to hear about having to sell, daniel.  :(  Hoping things look up for ya soon.   :-*   The Bluetrabe price JD listed is in line with what I'd expect them to fetch.  As for Freedom Eagle, my intuition says ~$150-200 more.  But what do I know.  :))   I've never seen one sell.  :P

And JD, I'm hoping you don't suffer because of that, but if you do you can come crash in my basement and work up here.  Decent amount of work where I'm at.  ;)  I know you have a family and all that, but....   ^-^

I have been ghosting everything click clack since 2011 now and the prices are literally a laughing stock. After coming to terms that i would never get my hands on an "Authentic" click clack key for my HHKP2 i have practically become a recluse and have even considered getting into my old molding. Which realistically could benefit my old mans sewing MFG. Figuring i convinced myself that i was going to start a prototype GH exclusive all in one peripherals bag and got caught up with life the adventure of learning a new craft (instead of staring at another bag in a sea of 'quite possibly' a million others) could propel one to say not "copy" but come up with ones own trade mark keycaps. Face it, topre caps need some love.

On topic: How much are the original black back drop, white skull press with red eye topre caps going for now a days anyway? That is still my dream HHKP2 ESC key...It would be the red translucent one if they ever decided to make a HHKP3 with some kind of LED backdrop. How sick would a HHKP2 be with a white LED backdrop, PBS white/black checker board design be? Sure wish i knew how to solder or wasn't sitting with permanent jazz hands from adderall to work with small wiring and soldering rofl.

I feel your pain. I'm lusting for some clacks or bros and can't really get my hands on some. I definitely want to 'pimp out' my HHKB now and have resorted to ordering non-artisan caps from like EK

Needs MOAR Topre caps!

It is a triple shot, and I believe it should be treated like one in terms of "quality".  However, it is very common and is therefore not as sought after and desired.  I think if Clack had only made 4 of them they would be very enviable, but maybe that's just me.   ;D

Not many people realize it, but ranch is actually a bit of a miracle cream for Clacks.  Takes away years of aging to make them look fresh and young again!

I'm not pushing you out, just alerting you to the rules here for selling and stating that people have been scammed in this thread before.  If you want to take me stating facts as discouraging you from being a member, feel free to, but you would be incorrect.  I welcome new people to post and become members of the community, but I don't like people who use the site solely as a place to sell stuff.

As much as I agree with the idea of selling and buying clacks at retail, I can understand the desire to know the market value of a clack. Considering that this thread is the clack valuation thread, don't you think that this person deserves to know what his clack is valued at? I also feel like people in this thread jump to assuming that a clack is fake. Has k3kc even stolen the design of the night owl (yet)? To answer your question GjessingMikk, when I had that same clack I was offered $250 for it.

Sure, which is why I give the value.  The value is the retail price to me.  I think poorly of people who flip them for profit and pay retail for all of mine and sell mine at retail.

If you want to support price inflation and further drive the price up due to speculation, feel free to do so, but I will continue to take my stand and state that the price is retail.  If there's any price inflation, it should only be a couple of dollars for added shipping cost.


I also feel like people in this thread jump to assuming that a clack is fake. Has k3kc even stolen the design of the night owl (yet)?

People have the right to question the authenticity of goods, especially when they're being asked to pay an inflated price several times above the retail price.  Given that there have been multiple fakes both with and without Clack's maker's mark, I think it's a fair question to ask.  You never know what has been or will be faked, so you should stay on your toes.  If you were to buy a designer bag, you'd want to make sure it had the certificate of authenticity, wouldn't you?

We are acting as a conglomerate pricing committee, all offering our opinions on fair prices.  The seller can take this information as they wish.  They can ignore the pleas for retail pricing, or they can choose to embrace that ideology.  No one is forcing anyone to sell at retail.  Some might consider the retail suggestion to be a non-answer and a waste of time, but it's a fair answer - and it's no less "correct" than someone with deep pockets spending $500 on a cap that's "valued" at $250.  Every sale/price is ultimately determined by the seller and buyer anyway.  And I think we all need a friendly reminder about the inflation of Clack prices to keep us all in check.  ;)

That being said, I had no idea that I would be received by this type of rejecting cynicism in a thread created to discuss what I wanted to discuss; if I misunderstood, read the above-

I was over the hills happy to get my first clack some months ago and I simply wanted to understand what exactly this item could potentially go for.

(Also haha, the bottom shot was a brainfart for me, I see a lot of ''doubleshot''|''Tripleshot'' around these parts)

Where would be the appropriate area to post a bottomshot, and is there anything else I should include for proper documentation

Thanks!

It's just that when all your posts are about selling a clack we get suspicious and reselling for profit is against the values of a decent amount of GHers.

I think the worry people have is that someone has swooped in before with little to no posts, asking how much a hard-to-find clack was worth and then went ahead to scam the living crap out of people. It's not you, it's the nature of the beast. You've not done anything wrong, but your submission has altered the topic of discussion here a bit. You indeed posted in the right place, but the nature of things are as I described.

Anyway. Best of luck if you do sell it. And as Signature said, the appropriate ad would have detailed shots with timestamps of the item, both top and bottom, etc.

Confirmed.  I'd say $80-120 would be a "reasonable" range to expect.  If you hold out a bit you might get lucky on the lower end of the range.  If I were you, I would avoid paying more than $100, though it ultimately depends how desperate you get.  :))

I value Trophy Silver higher than Mint Gum, so you should definitely be able to trade it, either even or $ to you. Depends how the two parties value them, ultimately.

Sorry for being a noob... but what is an "OG" clack?  I see it from time to time referenced and I have no idea. 

Also, is the value basically based on how many colors it has, like the solid colors are worth less than a clack with a color along with the white or grey or whatever skull?  Or is it based on age?  Just curious, thanks... I am just guessing more color = more value, but not really sure.

OG Tri is the black base, white face, red eyes clack skull (it's bottom left in the picture of the six clacks above).

That's the OG Tri-Color Clack (http://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=access,cherrymxkeys&pid=cf5f_sku_3blk).  Trigger warning for pricing of OG Tri at EK.  :))

All else equal (equal rarity), you are correct.  Ultimately, value of Clacks is a combination of rarity and number of colors.  A great example is the 3D Clack, which is technically a tri-color, but it valued equal to a Mint Gum and HO due to its prevalence.

 :))   Yep.  I remember talking to someone who said their wife thought they were crazy for spending $16 on a keycap.  And now it's worth $300.   :eek:

I haven't seen any appear since then.  He tends to make new colorways a lot, rather than remake previous ones (excepting holidays/themes), but I could be wrong about the OGs.  And I don't think anyone knows exactly how many (other than maybe EK), or at least no one will share that.  ;)

Normally they have been traded out here or sold for $200 to fellow GHers if I recall it correctly. You can probably get a trip color on the lowe r end but it would be a bit difficult depending on the cap and the owner. (Some users night decline a Vader trade for their drunken skull bi color)

How is it 'reddit' that's driving up prices? There's just as much people selling at marked up prices on GH than on reddit, please dont bash reddit just because of a few users letting reddit down.

I've mostly seen ridiculous prices in /r/mechmarket.  Most the people in here who put them on sale for ridiculous prices get called out and the eBay auctions get mocked. My point was that that person on Reddit was a **** for backing out of the deal due to dollar signs in their eyes, not bashing a community as a whole.  All I stated was that it appears that most of the price inflation appears to be due to Reddit.  For example, I was pissed when I saw some of my early caps being sold for 3x what I sold them for with shipping and shipping wasn't even included in the price. 

Most of the hate seems to come from r/mk though.  I'm fine with them, just not the vitriol toward GH I see so often.  Anything regarding Clacks tends to include a few statements: 1. "Geekwhackers" are retarded idiots and 2. Counterfeiting is okay and should be supported.

Alos, have you been in r/mk lately?  Anything regarding Clacks tends to include a few statements: 1. "Geekwhackers" are retarded idiots and 2. Counterfeiting is okay and should be supported.
I am on both reddit and geekhack. All I care about is great keyboard content, not counterfeiting and calling geekhackers geekwhackers. There are plenty of people on here that do auctions via PM (that have contacted me - agreed a price, then backed out because someone offered them more), aswell as on /r/mechmarket. Price inflation occurs because of ebay if anything. I understand that you feel upset because a cap you made sold for more $, as its your work being sold and you making no return, however that doesn't 'justify' (:P) saying it's 'reddit's' fault, it's just 1 user. You never know, that guy might be a popular guy on GH that just uses reddit to keep his identity hidden, you never know these days. I know that's probably not the case but it's not reddits fault for that. Why should you get upset that you are all called geekwhackers? You shouldn't care really, it's just a name, afterall.


I dont want to rant as this isnt the right place to do so but I just hate it when redditors get all the flack for problems not directly/indirectly caused by it. We/them are people too :)

Not really I'm afraid. I can easily go get a darkside for 200$ (I know atleast 2). Jacks and OGs have also become more rare, since the collectors rarely part with tricolors. Sad but true :(

Whats the trade value for a candycorn WASD set?

Trade value should be relatively high - especially compared to the other far more common 'blank' set; Mint Gum (WASD, Arrows, Skull, & 'ESC' Black = "full set"). Several collectors are particularly fond of Candycorn - getting Candycorn FN (Topre), Arrows or WASD set (either switch type) & for these collectors finding one of the rarer Candycorn set/items is a considerable 'score'. I've personally hunted for a  set of Candycorn Arrows & Topre Candycorn Fn Blank for quite some time. I had 1 chance where I was very close to securing a Candycorn Fn for good/fair 'resale market' price but sadly the friend of mine who acquired it ended up selling it to another friend (I was just a few hours late in reply - and so that Fn went to another well known Geekhacker).

In short, if you are looking for a Candycorn set item - Good luck; they exist but in small number & those are sought after by a good number of collectors.

Alternatively if you have a Candycorn WASD set & that's why you're inquiring as to trade value - then I have to say the value varies depending on who you are trading with. Certain collectors addicted to Candycorn might trade a relatively high-end Skull for the set (or multiple more common Clacks) - but not everyone would consider a set of "blanks" to have the same value. Certain collectors want to get Skulls, others have their sights set on particular colors or multi-colors etc. (either due to rarity, personal preference, or any other reason).

Basically most collectors I know would be interested in a Candycorn set, the WASD is nice but not the most sought after Candycorn creation, but it is still a piece of the set many would like to own. If you find the right person who is a Candycorn fan you would likely score a very nice trade in return for the Candycorn WASD set.

If you have any additional questions or would like more detail on what "trade value" they might have feel free to PM me. You can also post a reply in this thread, but I can't promise I will see that a quickly as a PM.

I hope this has been of some help to you sir.  :thumb:

Signature is correct in the reply he provided you. When I first started collecting Darkside was very hard to find (for sale or trade), however in the last couple years the trade value or price has gone down and there seem to be some more Darksides out there than in the past. I also can back up Signature in that I am aware of several Darkside's going for $200 and in some cases in the last 6 months a few went for even less (I know of a $175 sale & I believe one that was traded @ a "special friend rate" for a Clack in the $150 range).

It appears Clack may have released more of these, I'm not saying a ton of them are out there - but it is a known fact that certain board members received Darkside's in the last year for the man himself where previously there only seemed to be "old stock" or "original production run" Darksides available and they were not Clacks that people wanted to past with a couple years ago. That has changed and it seems many more individuals now own a Darkside, or at least the original  owners started selling and trading them.

I hope this is helpful to you sir.  :thumb:

Edit: I forgot to reply to your original question - I'm sorry but trading a Darkside for an OG or Jack is basically impossible. OG & Jack are both very very popular Clacks and people seldom part with them. With the number of Darksides that have been traded or sold recently I'm afraid to inform you that the trade value for an OG/Jack is at least double Darkside in the cases I am aware of. I've had people offer me one or more of their limbs for Jack - He's beautiful and extremely hard to pick up. The owners who have them generally never want to part with them (myself included).

Wondering what a topre drunken skull clack would sell for on ebay today.  I don't have one, but I want to know the value to make a fair trade based on other prices I know.  Thanks for the help!

My two valuations for making fair trades:

1. What was the initial cost of the cap?  This is more common with Bros, but I refuse to trade with people who want two $30-50 caps for two caps that sold for $25 as a pair.

2. Do you feel it's fair?  If both of you are happy with what you'll be getting, then it's fair.  Sometimes rarity can be a factor here, but if you want it and they like the offer, go for it.  In the case of a Drunken Skull, they're not rare, but people pimp them like they are because they're a two color Clack.

Some people want additional cash or trades to be based on aftermarket value.  That ruins it to me as it constantly makes lopsided trades and people more "in the know" take advantage of others.  The single best metric is if you're happy and if they're happy, then it's a good trade.

I've seen them go for around 250 on eBay and on trades/sales here on GH.

If they are valuing their cap based on their cost, you could probably do the same. Good luck!

I've had no problems in finding most of the caps I've wanted.  There are a ton of people out there who only view them in terms of flipping them and taking advantage of others.  If you want to get them quickly, yes, you have to make unbalanced and unfair trades where someone takes advantage of you and what you want.  If you have patience and show that you're not trying to take advantage of people and aren't an *******, you can often get what you want still, it just takes more time and reputation building.


If you want to be one of those members who throws a ton of money out there or want to be shysty and make lopsided trades to get the best of people, go ahead, but I discourage that since it just creates bitterness and ruins community.

I've had no problems in finding most of the caps I've wanted.  There are a ton of people out there who only view them in terms of flipping them and taking advantage of others.  If you want to get them quickly, yes, you have to make unbalanced and unfair trades where someone takes advantage of you and what you want.  If you have patience and show that you're not trying to take advantage of people and aren't an *******, you can often get what you want still, it just takes more time and reputation building.


If you want to be one of those members who throws a ton of money out there or want to be shysty and make lopsided trades to get the best of people, go ahead, but I discourage that since it just creates bitterness and ruins community.

It sounds like what you are promoting seems very similar to what you are on a crusade about. Specifically:
2. Do you feel it's fair?  If both of you are happy with what you'll be getting, then it's fair.  Sometimes rarity can be a factor here, but if you want it and they like the offer, go for it.

The single best metric is if you're happy and if they're happy, then it's a good trade.

This mentality seems to have a lot of potential for abuse/lopsided/shysty trades. Using the above guidance, it seems like the person with the most knowledge of aftermarket clack prices would be in a position to take advantage of the other person. It seems like this situation would be compounded by giving this advice to someone who wants to make sure trades are fair for both parties. Comparing aftermarket clack prices (perhaps unfortunately) is probably the best indicator that you would be able to get the same trade in reverse down the road (a good metric of a fair trade).

He's not really disagreeing with you. There are two ways of looking at trades.

If you're looking to keep the result of your trade indefinitely, then the market value of all of the caps involved doesn't matter; how much you value what you're getting does (their monetary value doesn't matter because they will never be used in that way). However, if you're looking to trade for something in terms of an investment which you can recoup later for either caps or cash, then literal value and rarity is most certainly important (otherwise your investment is a loss).

Both are legitimate viewpoints, especially with the market as volatile as it is currently, and the fact that these things cost at least some money to get unless they were gifted to you.

Both are rare, if you're both happy with the trade and you both want it, do it.  The whole min-maxing trades that is done so often just ruins the community, IMO, since you always have people trying to take advantage of others. 

So, the end question, are they both rare?  Yes.  Are they both rarely traded caps or caps that, when sold, sell for way too much and around the same price?  Yes.  Would you be happy with the cap you got from the trade?  If yes, make the trade and stop trying to get more for it.

I totally agree with Nubs, if you are happy with the trade, and what you're trading for is what you want, then you should definitely go for it. I supposed I am biased towards Mr Fridays, and Miz Kites, them are my favourites (apart from Veteran). I personally feel the OG is one of the more "common" tri's. But again, this is all my personal opinion, and you should trade for what you want. :)

It's a lot harder to find a Topre Mint Gum than MX.  In any case, if you want it and are willing to trade the cap for it, it's a fair trade.  Now if it were a common one color Clack for a bicolor Clack, yes, that wouldn't be fair, but that's a perfectly fair trade.

Probably a little bit more. I think a lot of people are unwilling to take a loss on their Clacks, so at the very least they add the cost of shipping and fees to what they paid for it, which means as the same few caps get passed around (because gr8 collectors stay steady collectin') their price continues to scale up ~$20 each transaction. So I'd say $275-375 is probably the price range on Mr. Friday at this point since OP pricing is at least a year old.

The Topre one has been sitting on eBay for a few days now at $525 shipped, so it's nice to know that even the whale market isn't valuing it near that.

I don't even get how you can justify selling a cap for like $250, then ask for $5+ more for shipping. You can't just take $5 single dollars out of pocket to ship this tiny thing?

While this could be the case, I *think* that most transactions for rare caps are trades, which would not linearly add to the perspective buyer (basically with trades shipping costs are a sunk cost).

With the great demand for clacks, I think selling a clack at cost + shipping is entirely fair/generous. I agree though that some artificially high number + shipping is absurd.

It's the most "undervalued" and "common" of the tricolors and often fetched prices below many single color Clacks.  So in terms of "market price" it's more than fair.  Both are great caps, IMO, and if you feel it's a fair trade, it's a fair trade.

Really?  Has MX Candy Corn become as common as HO / Mint Gum / 3D?  I thought they were more than that before.

Pretty sure they meant a Candy Corn Blank, not a skull.  I'd say 100-150 is high for one, even given the ridiculous aftermarket mark up.  They used to sell for under $100.

I've seen a few candy corn skulls sell for 250. I quite like them to be honest,  not sure why they're not as sought after (not validating price).

IMO, jcrouse's prices are probably outdated.  And I forgot about the blanks, that makes sense.  Just seems like there aren't any Clacks available under $100 anymore, so that seemed like a low estimation to me.

Yeah I think it's hard to get a candy corn for 100$ so 125 to 150 prob is more accurate, but it is possible I think. Also using the jcrouse argument was more to convince nubbs that they will go for atleast over 100$

My guess would be higher, one sold for mid $200's on ebay a few months ago. A few sold for around $150 pretty fast a couple months ago too. My guess would be somewhere between $100-200. Pretty crazy considering there are so many, and they used to sell for around $50 at most.

Well I guess it is determined by what you call the value. I would call $150 to low of a value, simply due to the fact that last time one sold for $150, it had over 5 pms in 5min asking to buy it.. Which would mean the price is too low, and it could have been priced for higher. However, I personally think that $150 is too much for a 3D clack.  :p
