Ralston Cereal box price guide

Google Translate option upper right
Definitions

Full = box with original contents.

Flattened = a box that was once full of cereal, then emptied & carefully flattened, using existing side seams. The box will show you how as you attempt it.

A Flat = unused, never assembled. These can come two ways, an uncut sheet or a cut sheet ready to be shaped & glued. Most commonly these are found as cut sheets. I fold these once at the seam for shipping. I find it just plain stupid to attempt to ship a flat unfolded, every additional square inch of shipping surface increases the chance of damage when shipping. All file copies at manufacturers are folded once at a seam. Get over it people, it does no damage realistically to the flat & extends the overall life condition of the flat.

Shaped Flat = a flat that has been folded at side seems & glued. Top & bottom flaps have not been folded on a shaped flat. Shaped flats are the printers product ready for use at the factory.

The crease = there is one flaw almost every cereal box that ever served time on a store shelf will have. It is the top crease in the middle from where people commonly pick it up. More or less people pick up a box of cereal from the top using the thumb on one side index finger same hand on the back side. We all do it. Check yourself out next time at the store, grab a box off the shelf, pause & note the indentation you made in the box. To me this is the common flaw in almost all flattened cereal boxes. You can prize for it not being there, but it would be nuts to discount for it.

Again why I only collect flattened boxes. Say miracle of miracles you have a full box on a shelve at home. Are you gonna put an armed guard on it to keep some idiot from picking it up the most common way everyone in the world would. If a cereal box is full it will get this crease sooner or later.

Remember I do not value at prices people want. I value at a good buy for the item. On values my bottom value will be $5 to $10.00. Here's why. Either you want a box or you don't. If you don't it is worth nothing to you. If you want it, how do you not value it at $5 to $10.00? A box of cereal costs about $4.00 at the store, so for a box to exist it starts at a $4.00 value in life. $5 to $10.00 is just easier as a bottom line. If you won't pay $5 to $10.00 for a cereal box, why are you even bothering to collect.

Hard fact / Harsh reality. I buy cereal boxes in quantity, preferably 50 to a thousand or 2 at a time. I pay roughly $1.00 per box for flats. I pay .50 cents to $1.00 each for flattened boxes in quantity. This is for boxes I want in Quantity. I have payed $2.00 each for Ralston Flats, quantity over 750. I as a dealer can not pay more & hope to make any kind of reasonable profit to me.

As with the whole Pez thingy, see Pez Outlaw Diary. I have a lot of added costs in advertising, promotion & support material. Time expenditure alone creating the Cereal Box Price Guide.

Just cause it's very cool, very old n special. $50 to $200.00 depending on condition n completeness.

Just wanted to highlight something special at the beginning. 4 dif Ralston G I Joe Cereal Boxes
WARNING! Prices in this guide are for near complete boxes. Meaning 1 or 2 flaps missing. I see a lot of Box backs or fronts only for sale on ebay etc. To me one panel front or back has no value. A portion of a box, box top etc has no value. This guide values near complete boxes only.

When you click one of the advert on this page, that is how I earn money for writing this.

1986 Ghost Busters Hologram Cereal Box = $25.00 I'd love to tell you this box is worth $50.00, because it is, as are the following Hologram boxes. Problem with that is, people currently will not Pay more than $25.00. That's the problem with valueing boxes, myself n say 12 others might feel a box is worth $500.00 to $1,000.00, but if only 10 people would ever pay that, if they didn't already have it. Is it truly worth that kind of money, no. A box is worth what it will actually sell for in say a 6 to 12 month time period.
