Vintage Surfboard Appraisal

Auction results are a great way to determining value of a collectible. Appraisers most often use auction sales to accurately determine the value of collectibles, antiques, art and other rarities.

You should be able to get a reasonable idea of what your board might be worth by using auctions as a guide but you should keep a few things in mind. Price is drastically effected by provenance, size, color, condition, originality, level of repair, refurbish or restoration and other factors. In other words, if you have the exact same board or collectible, it’s important that you make adjustments for these factors. Whenever possible, you should always go with the auction item that most represents exactly what you have.
