This will be an ongoing project that will be going on weekly, with the eventual goal of compiling a database of market values for all SB Dunks. This will be updated every Monday. Here's how it works: Every day I will look at finished auctions on eBay for a certain SB Dunk (authentic of course). I will be choosing one shoe a week, and maybe on occasion two if there aren't that many auctions. I will note the final price (not including shipping) and enter it into a spreadsheet which will compile until the end of that seven day stretch. At the end of the seventh day, I will average out the prices for sizes 6-13, and we will have a general idea of what you will be looking at per size, per pair of shoes. Example: In one week, 10 pairs of authentic Tiffany's are sold on eBay. The post will show the overall average price for all ten (noting condition of the sold pair), as well as a break down of what each size sold for.
Tiffany's: Date: Feb 20th – Feb 26th, 2008
Market value (average): $455 DS / $405 VNDS
Highest market value per size: Size 10, average: $475
Lowest market value per size: Size 8.5, average: $410
Thus, we have the 'market value' of the Tiffany's (Diamonds) at that time (this is an example). This is a way to not only be more accurate when searching for a price check, but also a way to have a ballpark figure of what you will be paying when looking for a certain shoe.
Lastly, every so often I will go back and re record a shoe for a week, to see how the market value has increased, declined, or stayed the same. You may realize the market value will change, but that's to be expected, and thus the challenge of this thread/idea. I hope everyone can appreciate the thought behind this, and shoot out some ideas if you have any.
Hit the jump to see our first subject:
Skate or Dies!: Date: Feb 18th – Feb 24th, 2008
Market value (average): $188 DS
Highest market value per size: Size 12, average: $209
Discuss these results in our forum, and be sure to check back in next week. Leave comments, and we can decide which shoe will be looked at for next Monday. –DBiz
