Where to begin? Campy components

Trying to reasonably price vintage components using eBay is overwhelming. Any advice where to begin?

2 front campy record hubs
Fiamme headset (Italy)
Suntour power shifters (pair)
Campy cable guide
Campy shifters (pair)
Avocet toe clips
Nuovo record rear D (2)
Paramount fork (2)
Campy pedals (pair)
Paramount water bottle cage (white)
Campy FD
Campy seat post
Campy front crank 6x52 1x54 1x42 2x53 (strada)
Campy seat post nos
Campy NR BB nosx3
Campy rally DT nos
Campy FD nos record*
Avocet and campy headsets
Strada crank arms
Brooks saddle (2)
Campy BB and crankset
Nos campy rear hub w scewer
6 christophe clips and 2 Christophe MTB clips
Raleigh team prof? Reynolds 753
Nos campy strada pedals
Regina gran sport chains
Campy and bullseye RD pulleys

These are all items looking to be sold, but difficult to price anything as there's a pair of these right now going for $220 on eBay:


A lot of these are new in box:


First gen campy rally, just RD is listed for $800 on eBay.

Going for? Or asking for? Don't look at current auctions, look at completed auctions only, on items that sold. And how is your feedback as a SELLER (feedback as a buyer is meaningless, as the only rating you can receive is positive). Look at the auctions that did better, and benchmark their listings. Look at their ad text, pictures and more. There will always be that outlier that goes high, really high. Don't expect to get it (like the Trek 620 that recently sold for $911, plus shipping).

Then just let a few items go, start them at a reasonable price, and let the auction gods decide.

At least HALF of the selling price of an item is your ability to market it. Nothing on ebay is automatic. Items with original boxes get a lot of attention. Big league prices take big league pictures, big league preparation, and a big league listing.

Are you willing and able to ship internationally? That's where a lot of top $$ come from, along with headaches. Google this topic, endless discussions already on it.

A few of your items have minimal value.

"Start small, Win Big. Start Big, Lose Big". I'd be tempted to start with the two Brooks saddles. Not huge value, but will get a good response. Then go from there.

The laws of supply and demand will do all the heavy lifting.

Selling as a complete group will grab the attention of most collectors with the boxes. Especially the International crowd would go wild over the group. Try "https://www.terapeak.com/", they offer a 7 day free trail in which you can get an idea what is the high and low on what your selling. The Campagnolo Ralley rear derailleur(without the box and used) I sold last year for $300, that went International.

On ebay active "on offer for" is a poor judge of the actual transaction prices.
As others have mentioned, it is the price actually sold that is of value and ebay is becoming frustrating in referencing that.

An item that was offered at "buy it now or best offer" when sold will either show the original offer price, not the true sale price and you have to click back through to the original auction page to find the sales price OR... the original offer price will show green as being sold but also will show struck out, the final sales price is cloaked to those referencing.

Are these you starting prices on Ebay? If so they are ok but I would expect the items to sell at considerably higher prices than you list here. In fact I would guess the NOS stuff is going to sell for about twice what you list here.
