Out of the recently sold mugs, the highest price for a single, ceramic mug is just $30. What Peanuts collector is going to be buying this Snoopy Weightlifting Mug for $180? Only a weightlifting Peanuts fan who for some odd reason hasn’t been bought this mug by his mother, aunt and that lady who’s always trying to get free advice at the gym. Does that weightlifting Peanuts fan exist? Show us your collection!
Pricing something out of the market is mistake number one. The other consideration a seller needs to make is what they’re selling. It feels like the seller has never seen a mug from the 1970’s and 1980’s. This is a really standard ceramic mug for that time period. Goodwill stores have a rack dedicated to old mugs. It wouldn’t be hard to find a few mugs of this type on there. What makes this one worth picking up at the thrift store is Snoopy. This early 1980’s Determined Productions mug is very cute and a delight for anyone’s collection… at the right price.
How much is a Snoopy Weightlifting Mug worth?
Determined Productions made a ton of Peanuts mugs in the 1970’s and 1980’s. There are a wide variety of designs for every type of person. Sports, professions, occasions, souvenirs, you name it! If there’s was a reason to gift a mug, there was a Snoopy version to wrap up for that special occasion. Depending on the subject matter, I usually pay around $10-20 for these standard mugs, depending on condition. I’ll pay a little more for the souvenir mugs. Sports mugs tend to be a little easier to come by.
