Your right Swerve, especially since they are closing between 76.00 and 84.00 Still a fantastic return on investment

Could this get higher? Will Tuesday/Wednesday be the peak? Just wondering if I should back off my 109 price right now.

There are a ton of these ending between 60.00 and 76.00 a few are going on a higher BIN. I have mine listed at 79.99 with 1 watcher. If I get that for it I am happy because of our initial investment. If it doesn't sell for some reason I will keep it. My son collects comics and it would be a great addition to his collection. I am going to buy some second editions for him. Midtown just listed these again.

I just sold my last two in one lot, a regular cover and a variant 1st print for $80. I started it at .99 and let it run one day. I've been able to finance a couple group breaks with the profits. Thanks Obama & Marvel. You're my heroes! Hope you all do well with yours.

I am seeing ads for third print copies on the bay. I know that there is a 2nd print being made but I have not heard anything about the 3rd printing. Any info on this Indy? I ordered and am still waiting for the first and second printing.

Thanks
Jason

I got $69.99 for mine about 2 hours ago. Probably should have listed it as a 1 day auction Wed night like I had planned...

Well, I'm far too lazy to read the whole thread to catch up with things, but here's where I'm at...

First, a big thanks to IndySportsCards

I had heard about the comic but didn't bother looking into it, so thanks for helping out the super lazy!

I did order a copy from Midtowncomics. It still hasn't arived but they did send tracking. I had decided to buy some off of Ebay, I know I overpaid (at the time...like $20) but purchased lots of 5 and 10 from the same seller.

I've been goig back and forth with them and they STILL have not yet shipped. Of course, the Monday holiday doesn't help. I'm obviously quite annoyed...I understand that the seller was swamped with orders, but it's not like I was buying one comic costing $3. Hopefully I will at least make some kind of profit though. I didn't want to list w/o having them in hand...had a frustrating ordeal selling a "complete" set while counting on people for fills.

Oh, on an unrelated note...I was at a family party today and this cutest little girl was acting all silly talking with us and brought up Obama for some reason. She's only about five years old so I thought it was funny she even realized who he is. I don't even remember exactly what she said, just that she likes him or thinks he's cool or something...but then out of nowhere she blurts out, "I wanna eat his brains!"

I totally lost it! It was so hysterically bizarre

Thanks IndySportsCards! I got 6 copies from various sources, been getting 75-80 so far. I think there might be a jump mid week during the inauguration and then a steady decline after that.

I think if mine does not sell or get an offer tomorrow, I will end it and run a one day auction to end Tuesday sometime early evening. Tuesday has to be the biggest day. At least that is what I will hope for. Who knows maybe I will get skunked.

Set yours to free shipping, I think with the flood of these items on ebay and ebays stupid ass search that puts the free shipping items at the top even when items are ending sooner are at the bottom, listing with free shipping will ensure you items get the best last minute bids. Looks like the avg selling price is hitting the high 70s now.

That's exactly what I'm doing. I had mine up 89.99 with free shipping. One offer of $55. Going to do a one day starting tonight.

try 74.99-79.99 and it will sell... or list at .99 and let it go.

My last three started at .99, ran for a day and ended around $80 each. With the media pushing this ObamaMania the next two days, demand should be up there.

The buyer has 7 days to pay according to eBay's rules.

That's why I put instant payment on my items for items like this.
