Just a quick query if anybody knows. How does one value a Collectable snowboard in order to sell?

For example, say you had a Terje Håkonsen, or more realistically a much lesser board. You wouldn't want to put a Terje on the market for $200, as it's probably worth a whole lot more, even in poor condition.

But how does one even go about determining a realistic price? This becomes more of an issue for lesser boards, as Terje's would probably auction easily.

NOTE: yes, i've seen the 'What is my snowboard worth' pinned post. I think the intent of this one is different, in that it involves collectors snowboards, as opposed to run of the mill daily drivers a few years old. ie we are not talking 2016 Lib TRS's here.

Similar to Eivind, I joined some snowboard collector sites on Facebook. I've learned a lot.
I think a snowboard is worth as much as someone will pay for it..... which is a little generic but true. I've discovered that the community is essentially setting the prices as they are the one's collecting. If someone wants something bad enough they'll pay for it. You can really get a sense of what something is worth simply by reading through comments and gauging the communities response to what others post. I haven't really found anything out their that shows what exact prices are, ebay and worthpoint can give a general idea but again not perfect. I think as the community grows over the years, so does the value of that community in gaining insight on "worth".

Appreciate the reply. So, would you say it's kosher to post a board on one of these groups and have others basically offer up what they would pay for it? I'm not looking to maximize or break the bank on price or anything, just get a reasonable amount that works for everybody. My cluelessness is the sticking point lol.

Do you happen to know of any offhand?

I've found the following so far: Vintage Snowboard Trader; VST Bay; Lib Tech Collectors, and thanks to @eivind above, Dig My quiver. Also, AlpineSnowboarder Forums which might work for one board i have.

Thanks again

There are several facebook groups where collectors help set the price. Like, Dig my quiver etc

Edit: There is a marked, it’s a lot of collectors out there and a lot of knowledge! But it’s not "mainstream" and open for all wich makes it hard to reach and get in to
Thanks for the lead on Dig My Quiver mate. Appreciated.

As with any group some are more friendly than others. I've found this one to be the best. You have to follow the rules of the group and you're good! I really like learning about old boards from these guys and gals. Super knowledgeable. Read through some posts for the first few days to get an idea of the culture then make your post!
