Is Overpaying a Good Thing Sometimes?
 
Hey all!

I just got this in just this past week, and it is now my FAVORITE card (yes...even more than my Nnamdis! :D)

[IMG]http://i1148.photobucket.com/albums/o563/lagalaxyfan2323/ScreenShot2013-01-24at91518PM.png[/IMG]

I bought it via eBay. The seller and I worked out his best price of $250. So, I ended up taking the deal.

Personally, I feel like I overpayed and that if it were to have been auctioned off or looked elsewhere, I doubt it would get over $200.

However, I REALLY wanted the card, so I ended up snagging it up!

Now that I have it in my possession, it feels to me as if I have some kind of obligation to the card. In other words, I feel like since I overpayed more, I should enjoy it more.

Has this ever happened to anybody else? Thanks!

Money isn't everything. Sometimes you have to say screw it, and just go for it!

Edit: That's what she said?

I think you did fine, Vick still sells well and has a ton of collectors. I think(hope) he bounces back.

For sure. Perhaps it really is a contributing factor. If I had gotten this card for $5, I would be very inclined to resell it and make a huge profit.

However, now that I got the card over its probable sale price, I feel much more inclined to keep it. Odd...:confused:

If it helps you get a card you really want, not necessarily a bad thing

I just picked one up tonight, a little more than I wanted to spend on the card, I know another one or two will show up on ebay in the next couple weeks and I would have ended up getting it for less than I spent. But by overspending a little bit right now I don't have to worry about finding one later, so I'm fine with spending an extra 5 bucks to know I already have it

Very nice pick up. I have been looking at this one for my collection:

[url=http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-1-NFL-LOGO-SHIELD-Brandon-Lloyd-BGS-8-5-1-1-National-Treasures-/251065483752?pt=US_Autographed_Trading_Cards&hash=item3a74ab41e8]1 1 NFL Logo Shield Brandon Lloyd BGS 8 5 1 1 National Treasures | eBay[/url]

I don't know if it belongs to anyone on here, but the price is definitely high. I put an offer in back in September and it was declined. Not even a counter.

Back to your card. I like the Vick more than the Nnamdi one, but I think it's because of the NFL logo used on the card.

Thanks man! Hope you get that Lloyd! LOL it's always frustrating when someone has a PC card, and they're asking far too much for it.

I also LOVE the usage of the full logo shield more than anything. Personally, I really don't like it when they only use the small NFL logo...I want the full shield! It looks so much better! :)!

Well, if you can, I'd definitely go for it. The NT logo shield set is gorgeous, and guess what? They're ACTUALLY game worn! :)!

LOL I'm debating it...I still have a connection with Nnamdi, but I love Vick too! :p

I pray to the god of football that he stays in Philly next year and leads the team.

It's not over paying when it's PC :)!

True words of wisdom right there ;)

borizz941 02-02-2013 01:19 AM

I've over payed for PC stuff a bunch of times. Good chance you wont see the card again, so just go for it. That's my way of seeing it.

vic2420 02-02-2013 01:26 AM

If is a PC Card and u like it who cares what the price was I just payd 300 for a Julio jones super 1/1 BGS 9.5 and who knows if I over pay but I don't care what I like it :D

RandysHobby 02-02-2013 02:43 AM

I have the same feelings about my Vick in my aviatar!

ManInTheMirror 02-02-2013 03:05 AM

overpay

overpaid

But yea I overpay for items often. If I wanted money and no cards then I wouldn't be buying cards now would I??? I just overpaid for a Cousins today but I really want it and I know I won't ever be thinking about that extra money I spent- I will be happy to have the card.

Cubs_rock21 02-02-2013 03:48 AM

You didn't overpay, a card is only worth what someone pays for it. This is a 1/1, you paid 250! Thus you created your own market value!

Fool5583 02-02-2013 06:05 AM

it's all in the eye of the beholder!! Nice Card though!!
