Posted By: <b>Jon Canfield</b><p>On the main board, we've recently been discussing how much some cards seem to be selling for as of late. This seems to ahve crossed over to packs, too. I know not many collect tese, but there are a good number on this board - myself, Leon and Henry included. 6 months ago, Sweet caporal and Piedmont packs (the most common of all) could be bought for under $50.00 each. Now, look at these prices?!<br /><br />$638.00 - <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/PIEDMONT-CIGARETTES-CARDBOARD-SAMPLE-PACK-1910-FULL_W0QQitemZ110138016293QQihZ001QQcategoryZ44QQr dZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/PIEDMONT-CIGARETTES-CARDBOARD-SAMPLE-PACK-1910-FULL_W0QQitemZ110138016293QQihZ001QQcategoryZ44QQr dZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a><br /><br />$122.00 (and still going) - <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/Piedmont-Cigarettes-1910-Original-Pack-of-10_W0QQitemZ200121685628QQihZ010QQcategoryZ44QQrdZ 1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/Piedmont-Cigarettes-1910-Original-Pack-of-10_W0QQitemZ200121685628QQihZ010QQcategoryZ44QQrdZ 1QQcmdZViewItem</a><br /><br />I'm just a little surprised!

Posted By: <b>davidcycleback</b><p>As the auction pictures show, the Piedmont pack has already been opened. So I somehow take that price as an aberation or the result of bidders who assumed it was unopened. I find it hard to believe you could ordinarily sell an opened Piedmont pack for that much.<br /><br />Though I don't consider $100 for a nice looking cardless pack unreasonable. I think getting them for under $50 is cheap. I sold a bunch of cardless Sweet Caporal packs a number of years back, and they fetched in the $75-$110 range.

Posted By: <b>mr. moses</b><p>Ongoing eBay auction for pack or I would include the link....Buyer wanted to get the "inside scoop" on a material fact the seller may have neglected...........<br />Q: Could you please try looking through the loose straps or slits to verify if a card is inside? Let me know please. Thanks! Kurt <br /><br />good stuff if you think about it <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br />
