Hey guys! I just won a celebi gold star on e-bay for around $20 with $5 shipping and handling. This card is a tiny bit worn out on the sides (only a couple of white spots near the sides on the back) and one crease near (but not touching the top of the card) which is about 1/2 an inch long.
So, I was just wondering wether or not I got a good deal, and what is the value of my card if I were to resell it?

Thanks a lot, I have some pics too, if you guys want to check it out to determine the worth

If you want to know the price value of a card, the best place to look is the "sold" listings on eBay. That is essentially what determines the price (since that shows what people actually buy it for).

I did that for Celebi *, and it looks like the market price, on average, hovers between $30 and $35. (This is assuming mint/near-mint.) For a card like yours I would say $20+5 was indeed a fair price (since your card would probably be considered either good or very good condition). You could probably get about that much as well (maybe a little more) were you to sell it.

I have disappeared from here. As apology, please accept this cheery picture.

Awesome! Thanks for the e-bay tip, I have used it before but getting advice from you is much better! Thanks a lot!

Does the little crease above the picture decrease the value of the card a bit?

Possibly, but not by very much, I would think. When compared to the rest of it, it's only a minor difference anyway.
