What devalues a throw? Obviously over time things such as supply and demand, rarity, and availability will affect prices, but what about damage? How much does damage devalue a throw? I just got my first high end yoyo (Code 2) about a week or two ago and I’m wondering if I should worry about keeping it in “Mint” condition just in case I ever wanted to resell it, or if it wouldn’t really matter what condition it’s in so long as it still plays great. I know some of this is dependent on the buyer. Some don’t care what it looks like so long as it plays like new, while others have to have it in pristine condition.
I’m wondering what your opinion is on how damage affects the value of a throw, and the difference in price you’d pay for something that wasn’t in “pristine condition”.
When I say “damage” I mean scuffs, flat spots, dings, that kind of small stuff that usually doesn’t effect play and is mostly cosmetic.
