Thread: Howdy! Can anyone help with appraisals?

    Howdy! Can anyone help with appraisals?

    Hey All,

    Totally new to this forum - wish I had joined sooner! Seems like a wealth of knowledge with regards to collecting Cars diecast.

    I took a look around trying to find an appraisal section for these collectibles on the forum but I did not see anything. Is there an area I should refer to or a general protocol to follow? I was poking around my bedroom the other night and found under my bed all of my original desert back/desert scene diecast (two complete sets) as well as a complete set of supercharged (I used to work at a Target..). Unfortunately, money is tight and they are not doing anything other than collecting dust so I'd rather someone else enjoy them. All still in the original pristine packaging, never opened and stored in a plastic storage container.

    Figured I'd make a post, introduce myself and also try and get some advice before I make an arse of myself posting where I'm not supposed to.

    Thanks again!

    Welcome!

    Do you have both Desert Back 12 and Desert Back 16 sets or 2 sets of the Desert Back 16 Cars? Does that include the Movie Moments or just the singles?

    I'd check completed sales on eBay to get an idea on what they're going for... Some of the Desert Back items go for more money depending on whether Fillmore is spelled with 1 L (Filmore) or 2 L (Fillmore).

    And as far as the Supercharged Cars, how many Cars total do you have? By knowing the number and a list of all names we might be able to help you out a little more.

    And if you do offer them up for sale, you'll create a new post in:

    Be sure to also check the bottom of the Lizzie packages -- some had a Ford logo and some didn't. I forget which one is more rare though...

    Looks like I have three Lizzies (pictures to come). When I was working at Target and collecting, Lizzies and Sarges were the hot ones..same with Leakless and Chick Hicks. Not sure how it is now though..updating momentarily..

    Here they are...

    So I was off a bit in my estimate:

    Looks like in the Desert Scene collection, I have everything but Leak Less..and Fillmore is spelled with two L's, not one. And yes, you're not seeing things..three Lizzies and three Sarges.

    Supercharged:

    Hamm
    Fabulous Hudson Hornet
    Boost
    Leak Less
    Ramone (yellow flames)
    Dirt Track McQueen
    Ramone (purple flames)
    Brand New Mater
    Radiator Springs McQueen


    -------------

    Any help with appraisals would be appreciated! Thanks guys.

    On the Desert backs, some may want pics of the back of the card back as well. Many are interested in on the 12 cars on back or only interested in 16 cars on the back. I will also ask you list how Fillmore is spelled on the back. Do they have a "License to Win" logo on the back of the card too! Just some additional info needed before we can determine if rare or really rare

    Or you could just sell them all to me for $4 each

    Ask and ye shall receive

    Fillmore is spelled Fillmore on the back. All of my desert scene say "License to Win" on the back and all of them list the 16 cars, not the 12. See attached pictures incoming.

    Edit: All Lizzies have the Ford emblem on the bottom.
