A major element of Jem was the PSAs at the end of the episodes that helped to protect children from getting hurt, or kidnapped – Jem even gave a runaway hotline number and drug abuse number too. With the spirit of helping the community, I have added this, long over due and highly requested, page to protect members of the Jem community from being taken advantage of, having their images stolen, etc.
Feel free to suggest other issues our community needs to be aware.
If you’re selling JEM items on eBay, sell it on eBay:
The only way to get a fair price for your JEM items is to list it on eBay. If you’re worried about under valuing an JEM item make sure to exclude the buy now option.
Make sure you do not trust people to tell you which items are rare JEM items and valuable or which ones are not. Many people have been taken advantage of by being told their rare JEM items are not valuable, and purchased off ebay -- with the intent of buying them and to sell for profit, at your expense.
JEM Fashion packages with photos (1987-2nd year) are much more rare then packages with illustrations (1986-1st year) because more 1st year JEM fashions were produced.
Boxed JEM fashions usually sell for more then carded JEM fashions. Average prices are $30.00 to $150.00, but rarer JEM fashions could go for $250.00 to $500.00 or more.
2nd issue JEM dolls (illustration on bottom left corner/photo on back) usually sell for more -- average prices are $30.00 to $250.00. (low end: Danse, Video Clash, Rio/high end: Kimber, Aja, Shana, Raya)
The 1st issue (large illustration on left flap of box/illustration on back) are more consistent -- average prices are $40.00 to $100.00. Exception of Spanish and Mexican dolls price higher.
Sellers: beware of sending high quality pictures to people and websites to promote your auctions. This gives someone else the ability to share the items as they see fit, including making and selling copies of rare items, and drives down the value of your auction. Sharing should be the option of the seller and winning bidder, not a 3rd party. Many substantial Jem bidders will not bid, if any outside websites/persons are involved with an auction. You should never let anyone have higher quality images then what you're willing to post for the auction.
Buyers: beware if the item is being promoted outside of the auction, then the value and exclusivity goes down. The auction promoters may share high quality scans of the items you now own, as they see fit.
If you share images, you should always watermark them somehow. If you do not include watermarks, other people will take and post the images without permission. 99% of the time, no infringements is intended -- but added your image to the web, you will lose control, of who, where and how the images will be reposted. But by included a watermark on the image then anyone
