Going to a show next month and wondering what kind of prices I can expect to see on gu/aus of commons to mid-range stars like:

Frank Gore
Devin Hester
Knowshon Moreno
LaDainian Tomlinson
Reggie Wayne
Marvin Harrison
Marion Barber III
Felix Jones
Chris Johnson

I am not talking about Peyton Mannings, Tom Brady, and any of the other elite players in the league but mid-range stars like above.

As with everything else, there are a lot of factors that determine that. The player, especially in relation to where the show is. For example, the Felix Jones would probably sell for more in the Dallas area than the Marvin Harrison, but the Harrison for more in Indianapolis area. It also depends what the card brand is. If it's National Treasures it's going to sell for a lot more than Panini Prestige.

Most of the players you've listed, though, should be obtainable for around $2 each, again depending on the brand.

Michael thanks for your response.

Mostly, I am talking about lower-mid brands, not the higher-end stuff. In addition, I knew about regional issues, I was just using those players as examples. In the past I have seen GU boxes at around $3 a card, but was wondering if that is still the "going" rate or if it has fallen. I have seen guys at the flea markets with $2.00 gu and know the market has kind of fallen, just wonder if it has fallen further since I haven't bought in a while and due to the fact gu cards seem to be overproduced these days?

Tad-bit off topic here, but if you by chance have or see any Paul Kariya GU at the show, I'm always in the market.

I would start at $3 as you change it later on if no movement, and leave you some room for negotiations.
