Default Guys i need HELP

So My Nick Foles Contenders is up for BIT OBO and i have a war going on with 3 people offering back and forth. Is it the wrong thing to do to tell the other guys what i was offered from the other members???? I feel like this is a very nice card and they should be notified because 1. I will make more money off it and 2. It should go to the person who wants it more. I would feel cheated if i knew i only lost by $5 on such a nice card because i would offer more if i knew. So how do i do this without coming across as i am scamming them to pay more??? Please help without being a douche....Thinking about myself here as well as the collector at the same time

They actually can not see the offers others have made. There is nothing wrong if you have 3 offers to tell them all the highest offer, and what you are looking for. I normally submit the same counter offer and same note back to all 3

very nice i guess i can see it because its my item i didn't realize that. I feel like by doing that it should just be an auction but i feel like with a card like this, they should all have a fair shot at it ya know. Thank you for input i appreciate it

I would not tell them what the other offers are. Just decline their offer and leave it at that. If they are willing to pay more they will make a counter offer. When someone reaches your goal offer - accept it.

Don't let anyone of them know what each other's offer is. Not just because it's unethical and unprofessional, but it would make each one of them feel as if you're trying to get them to up their offer as if you were scamming them.
You can probably state that you have x number of offers on the table to see if they'd like to counteroffer once you've counteroffered. That's a salesperson approach to getting more for your item without being cutthroat and devious.
EDIT: I'd also send all the offers you have on the table the amount you are looking for. The highest counteroffer you get would more than likely be the one you'd sell it to.

So this is what i said...

Hello Collector,
At this time i have 3 offers on the table and as a collector myself, i would want a fair shot at a card like this. The offer stands at $300 and i will let you take another shot to be the highest offer because it is only fair that everyone has a chance at this instead of just accepting an offer. If you would like to be the for sure winning person than please buy it now, otherwise this is the way i will approach it for now and in 24 hours accept the highest bid. Thank you for your business it is greatly appreciated

$300 is a fair deal considering the last few sold OBO at more than $300.

It's striked through. Easiest way without using another website is to click on the 'See original listing' or the pic, then scroll down to 'Print.' The SOLD price will reveal itself.

Naw man. That sounds like something straight out of some bad-guy-bidding-out-a-nuke-to-other-bad-guys-on-a-mysterious-island movie. Lol
