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!

1 = $1-5 2 = $6-15 3 = $16-25 4 = $26-35 5 = $36-50 6 = $51-70
7 = $71-90 8 = $91-110 9 = $111-130 10 = $131-160 11 = $161-180 12 = $181-200
13 = $201-220 14 = $221-240 15 = $241-270 16 = $271-300 17 = $301-330 18 = $331-350
