I think it is a little different, because there are only 5 of the card. I understand people having their own prices when it comes to rarer cards, but $200 is absurd.

His $50 was absurd. I'll overpay for a card I need, but not 4X the worth of the card.

Considering that you're preaching about logic, this response is ridiculous. Did I say he should sell it for the entire box price or anything like that? Why should or would you sell a low-numbered card, possibly your best hit, for such a low percentage out your outlay just because some stranger says that you should?

In the scheme of things, $50 isn't a massively far-fetched price. Yes, it's probably overpriced, but if you "need" a card sometimes you have to pay the asking price. I've massively overpaid for PC cards because sometimes that's the only option you have. Did I create a thread and cry about someone selling for more than I wanted to pay? No. I'm an adult.

Nope. Not at all. I just despise people like you. Piss and moan and complain when you don't get your way. Most likely the type of person that was protected and coddled by your mommy. But then the second you get your way, everything is ok again. Why are you asking that people not continue talking about this thread? Now that you got your way you are remorseful and realize you were out of line? Be thankful someone who is trying to rebuild their image got the card. If it was me, this would have happened to your card too.

You just said that it's fine to list it for the $200 for the box! Jesus H. Christ, do you have Alzheimer's? Probably overpriced? It's extremely overpriced. If better versions went for $15, $50 is acceptable? I'm not looking for attention, I just wanted to vent and now the internet tough guys like you come out on this thread. You love threads like this, I bet. And who gives a sh!t on you overpaying? Congratulations, you lost money.

I wasn't going to bring my problems into this, and I won't, but posts like this kill me. Who the @#@# do you think you are to be able to talk down to me? What makes you so special that you have to take all this anger out on me? What have you done to deserve the right to be a d!ck? Charity work? Save a life? I'm repaying Alex back even though he said he's giving it to me for free. In fact, he's getting the better end. I'm grateful for his help. So why do you have this feeling like you are so high class?

Clearly your comprehension skills are not that of an adult either...

Did I say you should list it for the price of the box? Nope.
I said why should you sell it for a low price. If you've paid $200 for a couple of boxes and somebody offers you $17 for your top card, how would you react? Based on this thread you'd probably burst into tears and create a thread about it...

$200 for boxes, $200 for card. Clearly you're a bigger idiot than you let on. And that's saying a lot. If my cards were worth $17, and got an offer of $17. I'd take it.

This reminds me of one of those "What's my card worth?" threads where the OP throws a big fit because everyone doesn't agree with him.

Oh my. I'm soooo sorry. You have problems. I didn't know. I should have been more sensitive to your needs.

If you can't handle it maybe you should think twice before making a thread about someone else where you basically do the exact same thing that you are accusing me of doing. Go ask mommy, Army or PTF to tell you that you are still special and the mean people need to stop.

Ask most of the other people posting here and I think you'll find it's YOU that are the idiot...
Just because you don't understand, no need to be all angry about it.

You also don't sound like much of a good seller. If somebody (who might have been willing to pay $50) offers you market value on an item you'll instantly accept it? What if you knew that 2 out of the 5 that were made were already locked up in a collection, or if you knew that this particular person was going for the print run, would you still leave possible profits/money on the table?

Keep posting, it's quite amusing.

But let us know when you have to go down for a nap. I don't even want to think about the state of your diaper right now...

Holy sh!t you're funny. Take advantage of people and call them names. It'll take you far in life. Way to make yourself feel better on an internet message board.

How am I taking advantage of anyone here? I certainly don't have any intention to 'cell' people names. I might 'mobile' them names but I wouldn't stoop to the 'cell' level...
Also, this has nothing to do with how I feel. This is about you, crying to the world about not getting your way. We do feel very sorry for you, just probably not in the way you want...

I made a typo. I guess I'm an idiot for making a mistake. Huh? And you talk about comprehension when you can't comprehend yourself. Charging more to a collector is taking advantage. I actually feel sorry for you. Being a tough guy is a hard job with a low pay. I can't imagine how pathetic you are in real life you puny little @#@#.

To you? Yes it is. I cannot fathom how you could know what it would be worth to anyone else. To prove my point, the card would be worth $5 to me, certainly not $15-$20. It is all relative. Just because to YOU it is worth $15-$20 does not mean it is worth more or less to someone else!

Fair. I wanted the thread to end because this thread is now just a flame war. There's just no point left. I knew I was out of line in the thread, but I didn't care. With the way I am, I just gotta say @#@# it sometimes.

Sale 1: $8
Sale 2: $15
Sale 3: $15

It's worth $15-$20.
