I'd pay at least $48,000. BIN is legit.

I understand that it is a high price but if someone wants it bad enough, they will pay that... Or close to it!

No one gives a f&%$ what you think. I'm sick of everyone whining about someones asking price being too high.

I believe it was more of a "look at this amazing card" thread.
With his comment on price after.

Thumbs up

No need to bash other people of what they think of the price.
Thanks to the OP for bringing this to my attention...now excuse me while I wipe the drool off of my face

Would have loved to see the expression on the owner's face when the card was pulled!
Perhaps something like this?

Pricing things this high with no expectation of getting close for BIN is common practice because a lot of people have search preferences for players / products set for highest price first, sometimes it increases views etc. Not that you wouldn't be able to find this card but its just a strategy

Exactly...if someone is a serious collector they will pay whatever

I can't wait to see this in a "Poll: Mantle Bat Barrel steal?" thread a week from now.

I got a $100.00 bet that anyone who complains in threads like these about too high of a price, if they pulled a card like that they themselves would have a huge price tag on the item.

What's even better than these threads are the messages from ebay buyers letting you know that your card is too much. Got a guy email me this weekend about a Brett triple threads bat card and say "I'm a huge George Brett collector and I would never pay your asking price. I have bought many cards of this caliber and what you have is worth about $28 shipped. Ill pay right away at that price." First off...send me an offer and not a message. Second...F&%$ off because the BIN of $150 was hit an hour later and paid for.

The guy is probably hoping for a 10k offer. Nothing wrong with shooting for the stars though. Never know if you might hit one.
