I'm looking to sell my signed OBC Wicked window card and I was wondering a) how much something like that would go for and b) where I could sell it. During my google search the only numbers that should up were from ebay and they were in the range of $3000. I've never sold any broadway memorabilia before and I'd appreciate any honest advice I could get. Preferably looking to find somewhere in Manhattan to sell/appraise it.

As you've been told in your other thread about this -

This is ridiculous.

There is no chance in heaven or hell that anyone in their right mind would buy that for $3000.

I would start somewhere in the $100-300 range.

Haha, I'm not expecting $3,000. But those were the only numbers that showed up in my search. So I'm asking this message board to get an idea of how much it's actually worth and where I could sell it besides ebay.

There's another signed poster on ebay for $70. That's a more realistic price. Search harder next time.

I know which one you're talking about and it's not the original cast. You can see a giant Stephanie J. Block signature written across elphaba's hat. Look harder next time.

Jessica, sounds like an amazing piece and very rare. Don't know what the price would be but the only person I would trust to give you a fair deal would be Broadway Mike. He runs a very small and cluttered Broadway memorabilia shop (his shop reminds me of Joe Franklin's Office and you can google that to kinda get an idea), he doesn't advertise and keeps a low profile but deals in the most rare and expensive pieces and pays top dollar. When B'way stars themselves want a piece of memorabilia, maybe from one of their first shows years ago, that's who they go to. His shop is located on 43rd street right before the corner of 14th avenue. Just start walking west on 43rd street and if you get to 14th avenue, you will just have passed it. Tell him "The Fisherman" says hi.

Jessica, get it appraised, please. Do NOT listen to these nay sayers. 30 years ago I went and bought my brother and autographed baseball of his favorite Yankee as a Christmas Present. I went to a collector and got one for $300.00 He had hundreds of balls and $300.00 was one on the lowest end of the price range.
There are serious collectors out there that make more then $45,000 a year who would in fact purchase this collectable.

Fisherman: Thank you! I'll look into that.

Snafu: Thank you for your positivity. I plan on getting it appraised, I would just like a good idea as to where I could do that.

When you find people selling them for $3,000, that is because they are not selling them to anybody, because their listings aren't finding buyers.

If you're on eBay, do a search, but then click the box to search for Completed Listings. Otherwise, you're only going to see what people are asking for items at prices no one is interested in...

Jessica, I was pulling your leg. 14th avenue would put you in the middle of the Hudson River. Seriously though, starting this thread again isn't going to significantly change what people on here feel it's worth even though that may not be what you were hoping to hear. And just FYI, if a collector is going to pay serious money for a signed item, you can expect to be asked for some sort of certificate of authenticity, proof that the signatures are genuine. You didn't mention if you had one in your description.

Fisherman, I figured but I'm trying my best not to give into all the trolling I'm coming across on broadway worlds message board. As for posting the thread again, it was my mistake for posting on the Off-topic board (which at the moment seems to be filled with negative aggregators for political conversations that have nothing to do with broadway or even broadway adjacent content) the first time and I wanted to post it again to the main board to get more advice.

I don't have one. I bought the poster at the end of a performance in 2003 as a part of a BCEFA fundraiser and they weren't exactly handing out certificates of authenticity with them.

"it was my mistake for posting on the Off-topic board (which at the moment seems to be filled with negative aggregators for political conversations that have nothing to do with broadway or even broadway adjacent content)"

That is why it's the off-topic board. It's off the topic of Broadway and Broadway adjacent content. I doubt people will ask you for a certificate of authenticity, as long as you price it right. A couple hundred bucks, maybe?
