I don't have a problem with you thinking this guy is a jerk... think what you want. I think you are full of $#!T here though. There isn't a single card in my collection that I couldn't give up for the right price. Maybe that price is $1,000, maybe its $10,000, maybe its $1,000,000. The point is, there is a price that would sway me to give up any card in my collection, any item in my belonging.

Okay I suppose you may be filthy rich and have no use for money. In that case, I suppose I'm wrong about you.

I've said it before and I guess I'll say it again, but unless the seller is pulling some kind of scam, mind your own business. We had another thread in the non-sports sales section where people gave the seller grief about his price. I just find that really out of bounds.

If the person isn't asking for value advice, just keep it to yourself. When no one buys their items, they'll get the picture that they are asking for too much. No need to give the seller grief about it.

I loled at 'ruin the hobby'. Here I thought companies making fake cards, or not supplying chases they promise were ruining the hobby.

The OP making call out threads and calling them jerks is what is hurting and ruining the hobby. Asking a high price, compared to selling a card for cheap, is making them a little more valuable which is good for the hobby. Oh the irony.

and the same can be said for yorkbag, he's only claiming that his 'crown jewel' cards could never have a sale price on them merely to try and attack the other posters claim that the card he has an issue with is that members crown jewel. Everything has a price, even the biggest cards in all of our collections. If someone is going to blow our minds with an offer we're going to hand it over. And he thinks he's going to give it to his family when he passes?? pffft, give them a month and they'll be selling that collection that was left for them

Who are you to say what is or isnt someones crown jewel of their collection?

Don't forget all the other cards you'd get. Boxes are 24 packs at 5 cards per pack, each box yields 120 cards. If you got a good deal on a sealed box at $120 you really only paid $1 per card. Selling a 1/1 badge for $100 would be a tidy profit of 10,000%...

It's ruined his hobby because he didn't buy it before the guy flipping it did.

Please, if anything, this selling for much more makes the hobby stronger because it shows that people are that interested.

I guess the lesson here is, if you win or pull a card, and you try to sell it for more than you paid, or more than what someone may find reasonable, then you are a jerk in the eyes of those that cant afford it.

That is really awesome. Sweet story, thanks for sharing.

Jerk alert? They won the auction and paid so let them charge whatever they want. Someone just got sued over an ebay ordeal, maybe this would be another one.

I don't think this guy is a jerk, but I do think this listing is HILARIOUS! I didn't feel like starting a new thread, and it seemed to fit in with the general bickering in here

Upper Deck Marvel Premier Complete 50 Card Base Set | eBay

So $100/card... yeah that sound reasonable Or is it $20/card except the Wolverine costs $4020?

HA! They actually used my description (guilty for using uber) Upper Deck Marvel Premier Complete 50 Card Base Set 199 Wolverine Rogue Venom | eBay

Mickey, there was a guy trying to purchase 100 of the Wolverine cards which is a big part of why the price on that card is so dang high. If he indeed accomplishes his goal, or even nears it, that greatly diminishes the amount of full sets that can be finished.

Maybe he spent $4k to get that super awsome binder done, as my auction didn't include one.
