I just rejoined the site after being away for a few years. I found the site very useful while I was actively set building and am happy to see the work I did on the site a few years ago was well preserved and still of great use and value to me.
I have a baseball card set that I listed in My Collection a few years ago. I am trying to determine its valuation based on current market conditions.
When I use last price paid and check the cards in the set, that seems to be working well. The value of the card in each card summary within the set list matches the last price paid in the detailed view of the card which shows past auctions listed in reverse chronological order.
However, when I use average price, the value in each summary of the card does not match the average price shown in the detail of the card. Some values in the summary card view with in the set list are substantially different from the average price shown in the detail view. So, the total valuation for the set is quite erroneous, unless I am missing something like an additional setting. Would appreciate any help you can give here.
It would also be good to know how the average price of the card is determined. With the graph of prices, you can change the displayed range of prices over time (3m, 6m, 1yr, etc). The displayed average price of the card would change if it followed the prescribed date range, but it doesn't. So, the question is over what timeframe is the average price that is displayed computed?
Thanks in advance,
