Cool!

I can't seem to find the listing for the Bartarang. How much are they selling it for?

Just as the cards are from Down Under so is the auction. It's $3K and there's a separate listing for a prototype version of the Bartarang which I don't recall hearing about.

A few other cards are listed. I'd like to get the binder card (numbered out of 500) but the asking price is steep for that kind of thing. I understand the rarity and legion of Simpsons collectors but nobody has jumped on it yet. I know a Barbie (Tempo) binder card (also numbered out of 500) went for $10-15 last year while also recognizing a Simpsons one would go for a lot more than that in a well-worded, multi-day auction. As a longtime Simpsons collector, how would you value that?

Well, I sold my extra Sample versions of the Binder card for about $100 back in 2012 and for $171 in 2009.

As far as the actual numbered version, I sold #055 for $132.50 in 2010 and #222 for $92 in 2009. I sold another numbered one a few years earlier, but I can't find the price on that one. I feel like it was something similar.

As I mentioned, the one in my PC has the matching serial number to the other insert sets, and as I recall, the seller of that set didn't even mention that nifty feature. I was delighted, especially since I bought that lot so long ago, the cards hadn't yet reached today's lofty value. Shipping to and from Australia was very inexpensive, too, back then.

I still have one sample version single and the uncut sheet with it, too, but I might part with those one day, not being the completionist I once was.

What are they asking for the binder card, by the way?

It's at $200 in Australian dollars so it might not be out of the question relative to your previous sales. It hasn't sold, however.

By the way I found the auctions by googling "bartarang."
