How do justify that? You could have got it for like 40 I bet. Was seller holding back big time? It IS just a single non-patch swatch. I doubt his 1/1 auto fetches much more if that price

I made 3 different offers, he countered $71 all 3 times. I don't mind paying extra for a card I really want. As for a 1/1, I would pay up to $200 no problem.

I love this hobby and I love Manchester United. I enjoy adding new cards to my collection and I visit England once a year to watch them play live.

Lol you either love Man United or hate them. It is great man, I've been to Stamford Bridge. It's a small stadium but really nice. I HIGHLY recommend going to watch a EPL game if you ever get the chance. The atmosphere is breathtaking, specially on a European night

The patch on that Young is actually from the sponsor name on the front of this name or number on the back so it is a patch. Nice card

Thanks Sean The pic is really bad, but it does look like your right it's a shiny piece from a logo or name.

If you look at the other Young #5 you can also see the same thing but clearer and you can see the contrast between the red jersey and white patch. I've yet to see a numbered card that low with a jersey piece that doesn't have patch. But I agree with the paying 200 for a 1/1, it's all about the love of your collection and adding too it. The only 1/1 i'd pay that for in this set for my collection is Benteke or Guzan because they are quality players at the Villa. I wouldn't pay close to it with the Tonev 1/1 on ebay now it is a cool card but the player has started 5 of 19 games for the team placed 13th in the league, enough said

i pulled an ashley young orange parallel auto 1/50 the other day. it's got 27 watchers right now and it's up to $15 w/ 2.5 days remaining. any idea on what it could possibly end at? i do think it will have some people bidding during the last day of the auction so i'm excited to see what it goes for.

Personally I would guess around $50 but it really depends how many people want it come ending time. I'd value it at $50 though

thanks. i made a mistake saying it was the orange parallel, but the gold. those are out of 50, where as orange is /25.

i must have looked at a wrong checklist the other day and accidentally put orange parallel in the ebay title. is there anyway to change that now or anything since there are bids on it?

thanks.

You can not alter the title or main description once bids are placed. I would suggest putting a clarification in a secondary description.

I also think it will sell for around $50. I would pay up to $75 for it, but I can't take that gamble with 3 cases coming in. I just took a look at it, you have nothing to worry about. I didn't notice you put orange, I just notice it was #1/50.

You have a point there. I guess there are a lot of hardcore collectors out there willing to pay big bucks seeing as how this is a product with massive international appeal.

It only takes one person to think that the price is worth it vs inviting bottom feeders that only want a steal.
Because that's the method I chose. The idea is to create multiple bidders on items so they get notifications before the items end to influence bidding near the end of the auction.

I started my Ashley young auto at .99 for 5 days and it has over 30 watchers. I'm almost positive there will be lots of bids on the last day as that's when people like to do most of their bidding

Has the seller shipped the card yet? I saw that the seller had a fair amount of bad feedback and would not be shocked if he held the card back once they realized the mistake they made. The Ronaldo that was sold tonight was mine and it sold for more than the one that sold last night did. Could be a fluke since the seller last night was from Hong Kong which could create some shipping issues. Still though, I think this product is pretty darn good and may get another box or two tomorrow since you are supposed to get two of those top level guys per case. I went through half of it already, why not do the other half??

I did panic a little, after seeing the feedback. I've been in contact with the seller, he shipped the same day with 2 day priority and insurance. Hopefully I get it in good condition. Congrats on pulling the Ronaldo auto You should get a couple more boxes with the funds, I know I would
