I just read through the entire 13 pages.

I'm looking forward to Wednesday when all this will be put to rest.

OP sold a card for $18k, and the typical Jordan hype conspiracy guys are saying its BS. He posted the screenshot of the payment he received and payment being sent to his bank. He is waiting for the money to hit his bank before he ships it on Wednesday and will post his DC number. Then a few tried digging into his past sales to find something bad and they couldn't. They questioned him selling a 95-96 finest refractor Jordan and saying he used the same scan, when you can CLEARLY see that the protective coating is different on each cards.

I believe it is legit. The Jordan haters are being jerks like usual and think they know EVERYTHING.

...and a side conversation wondering why you would list your "dream card" on ebay for $12k the day you receive it after paying over $10k for it...

My "dream card" was a Griffey Mantle Dual auto from 1994. I bought one a few months back, and listed it for sale. Only made a few bucks on it when I sold it. But I can understand putting it up for sale. You always wanted to own it, so you buy it, but then thats it. It just sits there. Owning it is not as great as it seemed. I decided I could use $900+ right now instead of keeping the card. So I sold it. If I paid $10k for something and could flip it a few months later and make 6-7k, I'd do it in a second. Nothing wrong with throwing a high price out there and seeing what you can get.

True, but at the time he would have made minimal profit, not several grand. That's why people are/were confused...

That's true. I can understand why he kept raising the price though. You have it at 12.5, then realize you aren't 100% sure you want to sell at that price, so you move it up a grand or 2. Then you see offers that keep coming in and realize you might get even more. So he bumps it up a little higher. Whatever he did seemed to work.

^ He hit it dead on the spot.

If you really want to know the exact details, this is how it went down.

I listed it at $12.5k initially because everyone saw how much the original auction closed for. Hell, I even made a thread about it and people knew I paid just shy of $11k. So I didn't think people would hit the BIN that soon with the higher asking price. After seeing lots of offers roll in eventually near my asking price, and Nat offering to buy it for $12.5k, I denied it but told him that if I did decide to sell it I would accept his $12.5k offer then. Immediately I rose the price to $15.25k. Then the real BUYER came in and offered $13.5k. That's when I went back to Nat and told him that was the new highest offer. Nat said he'd match it. So then I had to tell the other guy. The buyer really wanted the card so after haggling some more, he said he'd offer over $14k if I was willing. I told him the same story, then rose the price to $17.25k. He came back and offered to buy it at my full initial asking price of $15.25k. I was STILL hesitant so I told him that I still had to think about it. Few moments later, he comes back and says he's now willing to just pay the full BIN if I agreed. I didn't respond because I didn't have an answer. Then I went back and rose the price again to $18.25k. Went on with what I was doing with my gf. Few moments later, he still hit the BIN and it was finished. At that point, even though there was a big part of me that STILLwanted to hold onto the card, it was already done. He bought it and sent the payment over. Plus, even if I wanted to cancel it, it would look REALLY bad on me as more than 100 watchers were on it. I can only imagine the explaining I would have to do if I cancelled that transaction and relisted it. People would no doubt think I rigged it or tried to manipulate the price. Plus, at $18.25k I really couldn't hold off more. It was an amazing offer.

Anyways, that's how the sale ended. I spoke to him over the phone after and we both agreed it being mailed as soon as the payment cleared into my Bank Account. As soon as it does, I'm mailing it out Overnight Express.

Hope you apologized to Nat then since you "told him that if I did decide to sell it I would accept his $12.5k offer then...
While it's likely that it's a legit sale, your ethics are not so flash...

^ He definitely knows. He even hinted that he would probably stop after $14k as there is another one he can obtain, so there were no hard feelings.

Are you sure?
I was investigating fairly deeply at that time
What I remembered was:
1. You had multiple auctions (maybe 20-30 at that time)
2. At least 1 bidder has 100% bid activity with you (on most of your auctions)
3. That bidder actually is in the same city as you (hmmmmm....)
4. Few other bidders has 0 feedback

Refresh my memory please, Correct or not?
