I picked up an HK Banner on ebay for $59.99 shipped. It's made of heavy-duty vinyl with clean lettering and grommeted hang points. As far as I can tell, it's a real-deal dealer's banner. It appears to be unused. 24"x48" Anyone know what the market value one these things is?

Well it looks like market value was 59.99.

Well, considering that usually the dealers get them for free as advertising, I'd say whatever you paid for it, if you felt it was a good price. You could probably sell it for 60 bucks to a HK fan on eBay or something. Maybe more, maybe less.

That's kinda what I was figuring... market value is whatever the bidder ends up paying In this case, I'm trying to add a little color to my apartment, and I figure the following:

A framed print (I don't like unframed prints on my walls) is something like $30 on the uber-cheap side, and more like $50-70 when you buy print and frame separate. The typical size is 16 x 20 vertical format. Lets say I get 'em cheap at $35 framed. That's 10.9375 cents per square inch. The banner I bought (yes, I paid a premium) amounts to 5.2083 cents per square inch. The banner is going in an area where it fits nicely without need for additional wall coverage. Previously one fallout shelter sign occupied the spot, but I needed more coverage, and so forth bought said banner. Now I can use the sign in an area which is more appropriate to its size. All things said, I could expect to drop 2 $35 prints into the area, because the sign is of awkward size and would not fit well with a print (I'm kind of a symmetry freak). Now, prints are a little more classy than a banner, but the banner says a lot about my character. I'm a sucker for precision and "Teutonic" engineering.

Okay, well, maybe I paid too much

I paid what I thought still think it was worth. I'm happy with that. I started this thread because I was curious to see what kind of prices these things normally go for. I didn't know that dealers got them for free

Well, nothing's Free, of course. Let's put it this way. If the dealer is an Authorized HK retailer, which means essentially, he keeps a lot of HK stock on hand, he will usually get a goodie package full of patches, catalogs, stickers, banners, and most importantly, the 'right' to officially put Authorized HK Dealer on his signage, letterheads etc. (Sometimes they'll get packs like that from mfg's trying to get them to stock their stuff. But, usually it comes after the dealer has sold $$$ worth of said mfg's stuff.)

Next time you're in a gun store, take a look at what's on the shelves versus what kinds of cool mfg swag is laying around. I'd bet 2 coppers and a pint of goblin ale that they match up pretty well.

My roommate bikes along the MLK and Katy Trails from time to time, but he hasn't gone out in a while.
