    I have what I believe are 2001 Christmas gift tickets and wanted some advice on what to do with them (and a pricing estimate!)! When I double click on them I can choose between:

    Snowballs
    Holiday Tree
    Snow Globe
    Statue

    I am looking to sell and wondered whether I am better off trying to sell the ticket or one of the associated gifts (and which one?)?

    The tickets are titled: 'This is a Prize Ticket! It will only work for YOU, So Don't Give It Away!'

    Thanks for the help!

    N.b. I actually have the tickets on Atlantic, Drachenfels, Lake Superior, Napa Valley, Yamato and Balhae!

    As a quick aside, I was also wondering how much I can expect to get for practice weapons and 'a *weapon/armour/clothing* of exceptional quality'.

    Using the tickets for snow globes or statues would probably be best, they are pretty much equal value usually around 100k-1m each.

    Practice weapons are usually about 100k-500k each, and the weapon/armor/clothing of exceptional quality can be very different prices depending on which piece it is, and how the name is written. Someone else would be better at price checking those for you. Hope this helps :)

    @Simclass I will gladly help you figure out prices on the "Of Exceptional Quality" items. But I will need to know which items they are. I would gladly come meet you and take a look at them.

    If you turn up any of the similarly named red gift tickets, which also are character bound, I'd suggest the snow piles as your best bet. For double exceptional items, I run auctions regularly, and have had a ton of double ex items in recent months. Just search for "Hidden Valley".

    Disagree. There's a chance at a surfer statue which would increase the value substantially. Being only one good rare globe (exodous lair) and multiple surfer statues I'd have to say picking the statue would give the best chance at a reward.

    the practice battle axe is worth more than 100k-500k - i think around 10m-25m

    in 2001, the snow globes were 'a snowy scene of <insert town name here>' where the town names were britain, cove, jhelom, etc. there is no rare snow globe. they sell for 250k - 500k.

    the statues are your best bet. the surfer and angel statues are worth about 10-20 mil. there are also regular statues with rare names that are worth millions. but if you get a common statue with a common name you'd be lucky to get 100k for it.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for your replies! Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, I was away over the weekend (+ life gets in the way!).

    So I've used some of the tickets and thought I would update! I originally had 8 tickets - I cashed all of them (none red) in for statues. I don't think I did that well from the statues. Anyway, I now have:

    Atlantic - Blue statue of Shamino (bust), green statue of Dawn (praying)
    Drackenfels - Pink statue of Jaana (praying)
    Balhae - Pink statue of Geoffrey (bust)
    Napa Valley - Blue statue of Malabelle (praying)

    Based on the advice of brianfreud2 I did not turn in the red tickets I had (1 x Atlantic, 1 x Lake Superior, 1 x Yamato). I don't get the option for a snow pile - just snow balls...? Any thoughts on what I should do with these?

    @Jason- - I don't have that much exceptional stuff (total approx. 6 items) and it is spread over 4 shards (!) but if you were happy/interested in taking a look then I would of course be very appreciative! I have some shadow exceptional stuff on Drachenfels which seems nice to me!
