I want to sell a copy of Madonna's (apparently rare) naughty Sex book - prices all over the place on Ebay & Amazon...

Long shot, I know, but does anyone know how I find out what it's worth?

Ebay prices seem wildly variable (from a few £ to over £100), and Amazon's go from £90 - £415! shock

I have been trawling Madonna memorabilia sites, but no joy.

It's in fairly good condition (the ring binding is a bit skewiff), original wrapper, with the still-sealed Erotica CD and comic.

I thank you smile

I'd have a look at completed listings on ebay 3&_rdc=1

and see if your book matches any - condition wise etc.

At a quick glance I reckon you are looking at up to £50. i've had a quick look at current listings too and I'd be tempted to list as BIN £48 with inclusive/free P&P.
Starting at £50 for bids probably won't attract enough attention but an instant BIN can do well. Starting too low can be risky as I see a few went for £20ish

Take a good look yourself though - don't take my word for it.

as for Amazon's £90 - £415 - they are just the asking price, not what they have sold for so ebay's completed section is a better guide

hope this helps

Thanks six, that's really helpful. I always forget about completed listings.

'Tis a pretty ghastly item really. But if someone wants to give me £50 for it that's fine wink

If I were you I would put it on Amazon for £60 or £70 or so. That would undercut all the current sellers and someone might snap up your copy before the other sellers drop their prices. If it doesn't sell on Amazon in a week or so, close the Amazon listing and put it on eBay. It sounds like you have more competition on eBay than Amazon at present.
