Dreamcast keyboards prices skyrocketing?

I feel like 2-3 months ago they were on average $40 on eBay. Now they’re like $80-$100. Kicking myself for not grabbing one a few months ago.

I've been noticing this trend of Particular DC accessories and or games going up tremendously in value in the last couple of months. DC keyboards were so common and abundant not too long ago.

yup its ridiculous.
a few years ago you couldn't even give them away.
my local game store wouldn't even take them for trade.
like everything "retro" video game related these days... ppl will pay insane prices for mass produced plastic nerd trophies.
no offense to the nerds out there lol
its truly pathetic.

The current BIN prices on eBay are high. If you look at the sold auction listings, they sell pretty regularly for around $30-$50.

I'm currently looking for 1 and debating on just buying the new ones on eBay from the UK for about $50. I have a popular local independent video game store that gets tons of trades. I reached out on Instagram to see if they have any in stock.
