Definitely want to check out this thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3797710612Unofficial buy/sell TCG + other rare stuff thread.Can find people on other servers interested in transferring to you for a fee on top of the mount cost, or you can xfer over with vial of sands etc etc.Not as good as the old wow TCG forums but snot bad either. At least get a general idea of the "market" prices.

This article really peaked my interest as I have recently (since 4.3 dropped) gotten to a position where I can look at items like this with more than a wishful heart. Looking through some of the TCG/rare items forums, such as the one linked by Sbao, often times prices are listed as a certain amount of gold or X "vials." Such as: WTS Magic Rooster Egg 300k or 11 Vials. What vials are they referring to? Vial of the Sands? Why would they use that as a currency instead of using gold?

@Scard-- I think the Vials as pricing is because there's a relatively low cap on the amount of gold you can transfer with you (if they're transferring just to get the rare item) but not the value of material goods. Vials of the Sands have a rather high fixed value-- the vendor mats alone cost enough that you're not going to lose your invested money due to market fluctuations, as opposed to an item like the Guardian Cub, which can-- and do-- fluctuate quite a bit. So if you're wanting to take more gold with you than is normally allowed in a server transfer, buying up (or crafting) Vials and re-selling them after is a pretty safe way to do so.

@ ScardVials and mechano hogs have a pretty static cost to manufacture. While the items generally sell for more than that cost, they have a minimum value that pretty much everyone can understand and agree upon.When it comes to those willing to do server transfers, they can bring the high dollar mount (or item) over easily, but will likely get hit with the gold cap limit when they server transfer back! This is why they're willing to take certain items in trade, because they can server transfer with the items and then sell them on their original server.
