Last price update was March 13 2019
**Due to the Coronavirus putting folks out of work, the last few items I've seen sold since the outbreak have been sold undervalue. Up to the point of massive layoffs and furloughs, prices have stayed within the range listed below. Because of this, I believe the dip in value to be temporary. If considering selling a Queen related item, I suggest holding off until the world's economy is back on track. In a year's time I do expect prices to be back as they had been. People don't seem to be buying or selling right now, and this low period is to be expected with the current state of events.**
I get asked quite often about about value for fully signed items and individually signed pieces. Im always happy to help but a friend of mine just typed this out and i feel she worded it brilliantly. So heres a breakdown of what you can expect to pay today for Queen items. Keep in mind these prices will jump up in about a year's time thanks to the movie and of course, there are always exceptions to the rules- still, a nice and easy price list for most items. Enjoy
Ok let's do it. Let's talk value. And I dont mean what you personally would pay for things, I mean what the current going rate for each member is based on recent sales around the world. Everyone wants to know about freddie. Alone and on paper (the most basic of autographs) are currently valued at $900-$1,200 for any that arent from the last year of his life. 1991 is valued higher at around around $1,200-1,500. On albums, posters and photos, take those numbers and add 5 to 700 more to each item. Now the living members: John seems to stay around $75-120 for paper and another 50-75 for albums, posters and photos. Roger: about the same, usually a bit less for the same items. Same goes for brian. They sign daily. Multiple times a day. They arent rare. Now for the whole band: a fully signed paper can range from $2.5 to 3K depending on the quality ect. Fully signed albums, poster and photos are now averaging at about 3.5 to 4.5K USD. Innuendo and Mircale items going for more. 4.5K to 6K depending on the item (taking into account a more realistic figure for those 6 and 7K innunedo posters).
Freddie Mercury (individually):
John Deacon (individually): John is retired but does indeed still sign both TTM and in person.
Roger Taylor (individually):
Brian May (individually): same a Roger.
Fully signed items:
Yes. I meant that as a seller, he walked away with way less than it's worth since the seller would have only recieved 4.5 out of that almost 7K transaction. The fees made this sale a flop for the seller. It's still valued at nearly 7 but if I were the seller here, I'd feel jipped. And yes, the last 2 of those have gone for about the same. The last one was on Ebay at 7 so the seller walked away with more cash but 7 seems to be the number for that item as of recently.
Which is the one that had their signature in each corner think it was a limited edition? I'd love one of those if it was for sale?
There was more than one type. You could be referring to either the Innuendo promo signed posters or perhaps the great hits box set. Both of those items were limited number signed and signed on all four corners. Value for Innuendo is about 6K. The box set is around 4K if it's a complete set in good condition. Innuendo items were also reprinted and fan printed so they run a much higher risk of not being original.
Rushed genuine early 80s set on paper (lower quality) just sold today for 3K USD. Jumped a solid grand in the last few seconds. Will update the value list when needed, but looks like the prices quoted here are still valid.
Hey! Are these numbers still current?
No, right now prices have dropped quite a bit due to the virus putting folks out of work. The last few items I've seen sell have been pretty far undervalue. I do expect this to be temporary.
No problem. Actually, I had forgotten about this thread and this reminds me I should add that note as an update here about the Coronavirus effecting prices for the time being. Best wishes.
Perfect! I was actually thinking about buying another sig so this may be my best chance for a while.
