Even if there are other cheaper options immediately available to a potential buyer? If I am looking for say (random card) a 1962 Mantle graded a 7, and I see three available, all centered the good, why would I try and bargain a seller down off of Ebay who has their card for the price an 8 would go for, as opposed to two other cheaper options?
Though I don't disagree that selling off of Ebay does occur (guilty right here), logical thinking would make me not even inquire about the card that the seller with the highest asking price has available.
Has anyone ever dealt with Mikedenero cards or Deans Cards and offline sales? You can PM me on this if you feel the need to be discreet. I am just trying to understand their logic behind such high listings and my theory on "branding".
I collect everything from pre-war vintage to modern day prospects, whatever I am feeling that day/week/month!
