Collegiate convertible VALUE?

Currently bidding on one on ebay, it looks to be in really good shape, and comes with all the fittings. What is the going rate for these saddles? I want to make sure I don't pay too much in case it doesn't fit and I have to resell it.

The going rate for Collegiate Convertibles - the Diploma, brand new - anywhere between $800 - $1,000ish.

Used, bewteen $600 - $1,000.

Well I ended up not winning it. It went for almost 700 dollars.

And now my saddle search is starting to feel rather desperate, the saddle that I was borrowing to ride in seems to be causing Blue some discomfort.

I don't know how 'new' the saddle has to be, but have you tried Buck's County Saddlery?

I just bought a used Crosby Prix de Nations -- plain flap, no rolls, CC -- for $250. I was looking for something with plain flaps for my lessons, since the knee padding was bothering me, and tried the eBay route, but wasn't sure what I'd be getting. I looked at Buck's, looked at ended auctions on eBay and then compared the two to see what kind of saddle I could get in my price range. In the end I went with Buck's, since it was a fixed price AND they let you do a trial ride to make sure it fits and is to your liking.

Just a thought.

Well his back shape and my need for knee blocks kind of limits what I am looking at.
