Sometimes notForSale items are very worthless because when player sells them on regular station, their prices dropped down to 90% from their actual prices. It hurts especially the item is rare, very rare, or not random. Perhaps there are station that dealing on notForSale items via auction. Player can sell their items from one quarter its price to highest bidder (probably uses roll dice to increase bid for each panes until maximum prices). Player also could buy rare items with bidding mechanic.

While they might not fit to core game due it way too lucrative to be exploited, but it suits well on Vault of the Galaxy for artifacts. Moreover, it also nice concept for a mods.

Oh thats a neat idea - TSB already implemented a buyer for notForSale items, though at a flat % rate. Could eventually loop back and take a more creative approach with those stations later.
