I don't know what your guys' communications have been like but I think he's talking about the vast majority of cards up for sale. The many Ricks with $799 BIN/BOs that would and have sold for $200-250 at auction. Heck, I'm kicking myself for forgetting to bid on a Charles Hall Rick that recently ended at ~$225 (though the artist wasn't listed in the auction). With your card, one of the most sought out for being an awesome card and a preview card, I think getting $400+ would be a victory for you. Again, it's your card and you may only want to part with it for a killer price, but I get what he's saying when looking at the subpar or 'okay' Ricks that people are asking $500-700 for.
edit: for example, one of the Ricks by Hendrickson sold for $128 at auction. It's a nice card, but the guy did like 20 Rick sketches for the set. That's why I personally value Season 1 character sketches over Season 2: characters were actually scare in S1.
