I have a green suede leather Star Trek Generations jacket.  I won it in a contest when ST Generations was first released in theatres.  I was told that there were only 2 given away in each Canadian province.  I have searched and never found another like it. Anyone out there know where I could get it valued? Thanks.

Sorry, that's not it. The one I have is british racing green and is all suede.  The lining is green satin.  There is a Starfleet symbol and the word Generations embroidered on the front below the lapel. Thanks bunkey!

I suspect it was not a mass produced jacket because it was part of a prize package that included a limited number phone card to listen on a conversation between Patrick Stewart and William Shatner.

I think your best bet is to put it on eBay, but don't post it as an auction.


They have an option where you can post a set price, Buy It Now and also set it to consider Best Offers. Set it's Buy It Now at say, 1000 dollars and you can see what offers you get for it to gauge interest and see how much fans with money in hand are willing to pay.  


Honestly, I don't trust online collectible "appraisers". They only tell you what they're willing to pay you, not what the resale value is, especially if it's unique. And they usually will low ball you at that.


eBay has become corporate, but it's still the best way for an individual to get maximum value for an item. You may get really lucky. I had a Xena collectible that I listed at 24.99 for an opening bid and it got no bids. I ended up relisting it 3 times. On the third time, it got hits and sold for $65.
