Why do people get sooo greedy? Just remember what you paid for the box and anything over that is clear cut profit minus fees, so reconsider those five figure offers!

I tell you...some people!

Remember eBay caps fees on one item.
eBay doesn't cap fees on Fixed Price items. They cap it at $250 for auctions.

eBay.com : Fee Calculator

I think anything over $10,000 is great. If it gets to $12,000, take it right away.

there's definitely wiggle room to make profit at that price for the buyer, especially if it grades out 9.5 but great sell regardless...can't complain about a 5 digit profit, congrats!

Yeah, trying to maximize profits is something to look down on. Some people, indeed.

You sure? I was pretty sure it was on both and I just did the fee calculator and it calculated at around $250.

Agreed, what's up with people on here trying to tell others how much they should be able to make on their own cards?

If you do, category other, then no ebay store, then fixed price, then put final sale price at $100,000.00 with $0 shipping. It got me this:


Estimated fees for this item:
Type of fee Cost
Insertion fee $0.50
Final value fee (on sale price) $2042.50
Final value fee (on shipping cost) $0.00
Discount* on final value fee (on sale price) $-0.00
Total estimated fees $2043.00
*Learn more about the Top-rated seller discount and other benefits.

It's so funny how people get all high and mighty when I just drop a line about maximizing profits...we all do it, but has been said in the past; pigs get fat and hogs get slauthered.

I am not hating on the OP at all about maximizing profits, but s/he should know when to take a great offer and run with it. You never know about tomorrow and Luck could become injured; thus, having the value decrease XXXfold.

Great job, and now let's just hope that the buyer pays!

All these damn buyers who aren't paying for their auctions; hope this doesn't happen to you!

Keep us updated...

Probably shouldn't pull the "high and mighty" card when you used the word "greedy" to describe someone who hasn't accepted $10k just because he paid $90 or whatever for the box. Who are you to judge his situation or tell him what's a good offer and what isn't? You didn't say, "$10k is a great price for that card, I'd probably take that," rather you suggested, in a thinly veiled sense, that he's greedy and should just be thankful to receive such an offer. That type of thinking lacks context.

The guy's got a five figure card... it's a once in a lifetime type deal. He wants to make sure he gets the most out of it. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Maybe you can just shrug off $2000 because, like you implied, profit is profit, but maybe he doesn't want to? There's a difference between $10k and $12k, and that difference means different things to different people. I think it's awfully "high and mighty" to imply someone's greedy for trying to get that extra money.

at 11k..a reseller will get it, grade it 9.5/10... list it for 49,999 obo and probably get around 20k for it...i was about to go to the bank and transfer the money but he sold it...the biggest no brainer on 11k i have ever SEEN and a easy double up...

and there is nothing wrong with being greedy to and extent... it is his card...if he wanted 30k who am i to complain...the greed would be wanting 15k and turning down 14,500k etc...

Cool card and even cooler profit!
I was looking to purchase one but wasn't quite sure what I wanted to offer on it.
$11k is tremendous amount of money for a modern day card and you made a very wise move to sell the card.
Lot of us fall victim to over valuing our card and victim of greed and at times,It bites us at the end.
Congrats on the sale and I don't think there's much money left to me made for the buyer at that price.
