BIN prices tend not to be the best price gauges unless they stay around for a bit. I'm not sure how fast that one ended, but if it was bought within first 10 minutes, the seller undervalued it. Bummer ebay makes it harder to determine how long items stay active.filegiant said:I liked the eBay item 180005625048 BIN price better...

Yep, I'm aware there's a difference, but NOS prices are generally not 3 times-plus that of "nearly-new" unless it's something very rare.bushpig said:Big difference in price between NIB and nearly new though. There are people that will pay a hefty premium to open the package themselves. That said, NOS/NIB Thumbies are around 80-100 on Ebay and come up with considerable frequency.
From my brief time on E-Bay, I thought that I was asking a high end-but-reasonable price for NIB thumbshifters, but it appears that the one data point ($122) that I saw in brief search was probably a result of a bidding war. I'll let them sit around on MTBR for awhile, probably at a lower price, and then they will go to the hounds at E-Bay.filegiant said:I still like that price better
I also did a search for "XT ThumbShifter", XT Thumbshifter", "XT Thumbies" and a few more combos, but all that is currently in the completed database are nearly-new XT shifters going for around $40.
I think one point is most of the VRC members here watch eBay like a hawk and have a very good idea of what a relatively-common vintage part, such as XT 7-speed shifters, are worth on the market. That's why there was an immediate reaction by several guys.
To his defense, he has every right to ask whatever he'd like for the shifters. I've found if you really want to know what something is "worth", put your part on eBay starting at $1--in a week you'll have your answer.
