London maarathon medal value

Postby boyband6666 » Tue Apr 16, 2013 8:57 am

Hi all,



A bit of a strange one, but something that is worth considering. Basically I've done London twice, and both times have sold my medal on ebay in the following days. In both 2010 and 2011 it sold, buy it now, in 1 hour, for £50, and the next year £60. This year I will be listing it from my mobile that evening at £70.



If you aren't sentimental, then it is certainly something to think about, as £60 after fees is a lot more useful than yet another medal to throw in to the cupboard.

Finally got time to return to the club, both virtually and physically, and I'm on the injured step.................

After I'd been paid, I asked why they wanted them, as I wondered that too.



One woman was a collector, she had one from every year. The second couldn't finish and stopped at mile 19, but wanted a medal as a souvenir for doing it.



In reality though, as long as they sent the money through, I didn't (and don't) care what they want them for!

Anyway want to buy my 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 and hopefully soon to be 2013 medals !?



£300 ONO the lot but in reality I'd take £10 per medal ! Ho ho. :lol:



I'm certainly not set up on EBay !
Howay the lads (and lasses)
