Estimation iPod classic 3rd generation NEW

Hello everybody,

I have a iPod classic 3rd generation 20GB new in plastic wrap.
The packaging is in perfect condition.
I really don't know the value of this object.

Have you got an idea?

Thank you very much.

You've got a little while longer to go before this hits high-price retro status.

Based on iPods that actually sold on eBay, I would of thought 500+?

iPhone 5 32GB White, iPad 3 16GB Black, iPhone 2G 8GB Sealed, iPod Video 5.5G 120GB, Shure SE425's

I'd say more in the range of $100 give or take, it's not particularly the first generation so it wouldn't fetch the premium.

I'm going by UK prices here, maybe a little different in the US. An open box 20GB 4th Gen went for about 350 a few months ago, and sealed 30GB 5th Gens are selling at 150+ consistently

But its all dependant on how much the buyer wants to pay I guess

I see you're asking $9,000 for it on eBay, might have to wait a few years to achieve that price :P

Ok, now I know you want an estimate, but its really worth what someone is willing to pay! If two wealthy collectors want the same thing, you could get lucky and get 500-1000$, possibly even more

Is it worth it? I don't know! If nobody wants it, then its worthless, you see my point?

An iPod like this went for 779$ on ebay a couple of months ago

It is worth as much as people are willing to pay

What's even worse at $9k is that eBay / PayPal fees are going to be nuts (although I doubt it'll sell anyway)

Why not just list it for say $500.00 instead of the 9k you have now and see if someone's buys it? And then put up for auction if it does not sell.. I bet you could get one person to buy.. Also $500 would be a great profit on that.
