View Full Version : Shipwreck with shark tattoo...how rare is it?

03-19-2012, 06:20 AM
I picked up a Shipwreck at the flea market today, MOC (OK, the card is slightly curved, but no creases). I bought the figure because I wanted a Shipwreck, but noticed it had the shark tattoo. I saw a couple on ebay with Buy it Nows for anywhere from $40 to $150. BIN are not great indicators, so I figured I'd defer to the experts. BTW...I paid $8.

Ah the shark tat Shipwreck... I paid four bucks [plus shipping] for mine on eBay while everyone that the the anchor tat version was the highly sought after variant.

But what it's worth now, I couldn't tell you. Not one folks talk about a lot.

My first 25th figure. Bought him loose off ebay. 5 bucks.

OK, I'm actually glad to know he's not terribly rare. I never keep anything on the card, so this makes it easier for me. Thanks for the info.

I'd say that he usually goes between 15-30 like others have said. As far as scarcity, I think that the anchor tattoo with no anchor on his belt is more rare. Though he is less in demand and many people aren't even aware of him. So he normally sells for the same price as the anchor tattoo with anchor belt buckle.
