eBay Nancy Drew Prices December 2010

You did read the title correctly. This post was written on December 17, 2010, but it was never published. Instead of deleting it, here it is. I removed the links to the eBay items, since they are no longer in eBay's database.

Current prices are not all low. It depends upon who is looking.

Carolyn Keene - Nancy Drew Book "Lilac Inn" Vintage

This listing was for a 1932E-12 Lilac Inn book with orange silhouette endpapers and no dust jacket. Someone bought it for $125.00. Seriously? Examples with dust jackets often sell for well under $100.00.

EARLY Nancy Drew Sign of the Twisted Candles MINT w/ DJ

This listing was for a 1941B-26 Twisted Candles book and dust jacket. The dust jacket lists to #18 and has the blue silhouette spine symbol. This is the earliest and thickest format for the blue spine symbol dust jackets. The book sold for $125.00.

I have had a couple of books and jackets meeting the same points up for sale for around $80.00 to $100.00. I guess my prices aren't that high, right?


First printing Nancy Drew books in dust jacket have retained their values despite most books falling in value. This first printing book and jacket sold for $315.96.
