Default Great email I got from ebay member.

I just finished listing a bunch of scrub autos and jerseys that Ive been kicking around from box to box and got sick of looking at so I figure I will throw them up on auction for 7 days starting at 1 cent each and just get what I can get. I get this lovely email after doing so....

"If you sell this card for a cent, you are out of ur mind(no offense).But i think you should put a reserve on this item for at least $20.00.I had this very same card and sold it for $25.00,without shipping.So as a fellow card seller i advise you to raise the price."

Now the card in question is a Courtney Roby 2005 Topps Finest Autograph Green Refractor /199 There is one sitting in someones store for $6.50 I have never heard of the guy other than his rookie year. Im not even sure hes on a roster. Granted Id love to get 25 bucks for it but I dont see it happening, hell Ill be happy if I get 5 bucks for it lol.

I usually tell them thanks, bid high and bid often.

Best to All,
I may not be the oldest member here but I paid $8. an auto and shook Joe DiMaggio's hand at the Armenian Church in NYC once. I do not use "gift". If you need an extra buck, add it in.

Heck, tell him you will take $15 for it and you would love to see him put $10 in his pocket. I get these emails once in a while. Once you tell him that, he won't be bothering you any more.

If his went for 25, then yours should have no problem getting up to atleats 10 with no help from a reserve. Right?....
