Quoted values are for CARDED, NM examples. Cards less than NM will obviously command a lesser value than listed, depending on overall condition.

Note that the NCHWA utilizes a pricing method called "Star Value©." Instead of specific dollar values, each car will be assigned a Star Value© to indicate rarity and potential price range. There are simply too many variables to place a "set" value on any model, so a range will be used instead to indicate where that particular model may fall on the secondary price scale. A +/- indicates where on that scale the value is approximated, while a number by itself would indicate the value falls in the middle of the Star Value. This is also an easy quick-glance method to determine rarity; the higher the number, the rarer the car. The value chart will be placed at the bottom of each page.

Option: Click the button to the left to download a printable copy of the Star Chart for easy reference (Microsoft Word or equivalent program required for viewing or download). It beats scrolling up and down when you're pricing your cars!

Collector Tip:
PR5's were the prevalent wheel in 2002, but some 5spk variations proved to be the chasers during that year. The green HWC Cougar is listed as #17 in the First Editions Series, but it wasn't a mainline car. It was issued by HWC.com as a bonus of sorts, due to some crushed cards of the HWC Rodger Dodger being received by collectors. It's a tough find! 2002 proved to be another concept-heavy year, with only a few realistic models. The general collector's attitude toward the PR5 wheel began to show, and it wasn't being enthusiastically received, overall.
