What is a reasonable price I should expect to pay for a set of MNH VF Plate Blocks for the full set of Famous Americans?

I think I paid about $125 at a show a few years back. That was however for a mixed hinged/NH set.

I bought a decent set last year for < $40 last year via eBay auction. Just keep your eyes open for when they're posted via notification from eBay and bid at the level you're willing to pay. If your bid is reasonable, its pretty likely you'll eventually get a set at that price. There's certainly no lack of them on the market so patience can be your friend. If you search on eBay for completed transactions, you can get a good sense of what they're selling for.

Wow, They are giving those things away. I bought singles years ago and paid almost that much for singles!

Pascoe, here's a quick and dirty search on recently sold sets of Famous American MNH singles: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_od...&_sacat=3461. They seem obtainable for $7-10, postage included.
