The insanity continues. The “Clear” winners of the second half of the auction? Clear bubble carded figures from Return of the Jedi brought in almost $50,000 in sales. And on average, they shockingly sold for an incredible 40% over the high end of their estimates. Hake’s auction 234 brought in $72,000 in revenge proofs, $60,000 in Power of the Force figures, and a total of $1.2 million dollars in sales of Star Wars items. Do we really live in a collecting world in which a B-Wing Pilot and a Prune Face figure each sold for $1,000? How much did a clear bubble POTF Wicket W. Warrick sell for? Which Revenge proof card sold for $13,000 - the same price as a Charcoal Robes POTF Anakin Skywalker prototype? And will Power of the Force figures continue to skyrocket? Join host David Quinn and collector/author Matt George for the second and final part of a conversation about these items and more, as they explore the stunning prices and unearth the collecting trends from Hake’s Auction 234. And thanks to Matt’s exhaustive data analysis, you’ll understand how truly surprising these results are, as he shares valuable insight and information only found on this podcast! Which carded figures performed the best? Did prototypes underperform? What were the top ten highest-selling pieces? Which items were steals and went under the radar during the auction?
