Scratch is a ridiculously overpriced figure that really isn't that rare as people want to convince other it is, so who knows.

$750-1000 according to recent Ebay sales. Yeah, not all that rare, but still quite in demand.

Even graded? And directly from mirage studios with signed COA by turtle creators in custom case... You'd say only 750-1000?

Sorry, I didn't realize it was graded. The pic is kinda hard to see. Depending on grade it would be more for sure.

I personally don't put to much value on signatures and/or COA. In some instances I prefer no signature on the item because it makes it less mint condition. And if you do value the signature it shouldn't be a lot because so many things are signed now a days.

It could sell in an auction setting for $2,000 plus. It's common to see higher prices with auction snipes. Only takes two. But I personally wouldn't pay more than the fair market value of $700-$900.

Creators are "finding" that they have a lot of things around in storage. I wouldn't be surprised if another Scratch or two shows up.

edit: I need to read threads more thoroughly. I didn't realize it was graded. That would add some more value. If not kapmyke this could be something from bchick1022 on eBay, they routinely have higher priced graded items like this. Over priced imho.

Anyone paying $1000 for a toy should probably just run for President. They've got the money for it.

According to this article the average household credit card debt is $16,425. One of my collecting rules is never use a card on collectibles, ever. $1,000 isn't really that bad though compared to other collections and hobbies. Just think about all those expensive guitars hanging on walls, golf clubs, ATVs, tattoos, shoes. The list really could go on and on. And I'm thinking a lot of it is credit cards.

I was being nice. What I really think is anyone paying $1000 for a collectible toy is an idiot with too much money.

Buy a used car instead for that kinda money, instead of a toy mutant cat you're not going to take out of the packaging.

"Mirage Studios' Scratch"? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Everything from Mirage thats from Laird's (or any Mirage guys) collection comes with a COA as well as most of the boxed and/or oddball items. I got a "shoulder bag" and it had a COA...

CGC can be faked (the witness not being present, but signing off that they were, like anything from a Shellback signing...lol). You pay for CBCS. I have my own COAs for signed merch. It just says I was there when whatever the item is was signed... all depends on the honesty of the person...

I can verify that this isn't so from Murph. I've gotten 2 or 3 things from him with no certificate.

From him directly or through Mirage? I got lookimg at what i've bought from Mirage and it seems all the ebay stuff has a COA, but only things from their website listed as having a COA.... Sorry for the confusion.

Direct from his personal eBay account. That might be the difference?

Sounds likely... It is nice getting them direct from creators, but its still just paper.... *shrugs* I dunno. I like having them for signed stuff.... I was going to get my notary license again just so I could stamp my COAs but you aren't supposed to do your own stuff... lol
