Default Q about Cricut Lite cartridges

I have a couple Cricut Lite cartridges that I received as gifts - they are not my style at all, so I don’t think I will use them and would like to sell them. Before I try listing them on various websites (Facebook, Craig’s List, etc.), I need to figure out what they are worth. One is called “Savory” – it’s new, in the original, unopened package. I tried googling it and it came up at around $29.99 new on a bunch of different websites. I know I probably won’t get that for it, but is that a pretty accurate retail price for Lite cartridges?

When I googled the 2nd one, it came up under 3 different sellers on ebay, listed at $89-$100. Is that even possible? A couple of the listings claimed the cartridge is “retired” – does Cricut retire their cartridges? I’m glad that I didn’t throw it in with my garage sale stuff with $5 on it, but are people really paying that much for cartridges? This one is not in the original sealed package, but it’s pretty much new (I used it once).

Any thoughts you might have would be most appreciated! TIA.

What is the name of your other cartridges? Some of them are "Rare" and in demand.

Billionaire is one that has always been sought after, I have one, I'm not sure what the big deal is though. Several of the older retired cartridges seem to generate excitement. Tags, Bags and Boxes is another and the Hello Kitty is one.

I think I paid about $20 for the few lite cartridges I have when they were new. Got them at Walmart I think. I would not pay $89-100 for any cartridge, ever, but I have seen retired ones on Ebay going for that. They do retire the carts. I wish I had gotten Toy Story but refuse to pay that on ebay for it.
