    Rant

    Hi all

    Pretty annoyed right now.

    Ill just get into it.

    I have a sale thread right now, where I use rough ebay values to determine what my cards sell for, here is a list of Cash Values I am asking.

    I get a member asking about a lot price. So I break it all down:

    - 06/07 Ultimate Signatures Stevens - $17
    - 11/12 SP Authentic Future Watch Auto Rookie Scheifele /999 - $25
    - 09/10 SP Authentic Future Watch Auto Rookie Eller /999 - $8
    - 11/12 Ultimate Signatures Tavares - $13
    - 10/11 Dominion Ruby Auto Thornton /50 - $9
    - 09/10 Ultimate Signatures Iginla - $10
    - 10/11 SP Authentic SOTT Tavares - $20

    ( the SPs from this set do very well )
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Hall - $28
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Craig - $20
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Cheevers - $8
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Fuhr - $32
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Bower - $17
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Worsley - $26
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Vachon - $18
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Dionne - $8
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Bossy - $10
    - 04/05 Upper Deck Legendary Signatures Sittler SP /91 - $62

    Total - $331 .... I think to myself, thats a healthy chunck of change, ill knock it down to $275 dlvd with tracking and insurance ( saving the other member $50+ on the lot deal )


    I get a reply PM, do you have info on the BVs? I do so I add them all in:

    - 06/07 Ultimate Signatures Stevens - $17 - BV 15
    - 11/12 SP Authentic Future Watch Auto Rookie Scheifele /999 - $25 - BV 40
    - 09/10 SP Authentic Future Watch Auto Rookie Eller /999 - $8 - BV 15
    - 11/12 Ultimate Signatures Tavares - $13 - BV 25
    - 10/11 Dominion Ruby Auto Thornton /50 - $9 - BV 20
    - 09/10 Ultimate Signatures Iginla - $10 - BV 25
    - 10/11 SP Authentic SOTT Tavares - $20 - BV 20

    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Hall - $28 - BV 30
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Craig - $20 - BV 40
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Cheevers - $8 - BV 40
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Fuhr - $32 - BV 25
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Bower - $17 - BV 20
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Worsley - $26 - BV 50
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Vachon - $18 - BV 25
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Dionne - $8 - BV 25
    - 04/05 Upper Deck legendary Signatures Bossy - $10 - BV 20
    - 04/05 Upper Deck Legendary Signatures Sittler SP /91 - $62 - BV 50

    I explain that the rarer / unlisted SPs from Ultimate and Legendary sell very well as the sets are highly collected and dont show up too often, and wait for his reply.


    I get a response, the Sittler has a BV of 50, but your asking $62?


    So I reply back again, with a link of the Sittler going for $65 dlvd within the last month.


    I get another response, your asking higher than BV on some cards ..... and I just cant do that.


    So I reply one last time .....

    The book is old and outdated ..... we are not trading, you are trying to buy off me. I have concrete evidence of what my cards can sell for, and you tell me the BV is too low after I link you completed listings?

    The total for the lot is $331, which was already a little under ebay values ..... then i knocked off $50

    Then you quote me telling me the BVs are too close to some cash values ( which is why I told you the book is old and outdated )

    Why does the Sittler BV 50, and I have proof of it selling for $65?
    Why does the Cheevers BV 40, and I have proof of it selling for $10?

    Please dont quote BVs at me, when the total BV is 561 ( with the 3 freebies I told him he'd be getting ) ..... and I am asking $275 dlvd ( which is under 50% BV )



    Talk about some people trying to gouge or win every deal ...... and his numbers dont even add up, its like hes trying anything by quoting BVs or asking for lot prices to get the total price lower and lower ..... waste my time ...

    There's certain members on here that I don't even bother replying to any more. You offer a good deal and all they want is more from you. That's a great lot for a pretty solid price. And it's pretty obvious to me (at least based on the variety of cards in the lot) that this person has no intention of keeping any of these cards; they're all for resale.

    If you have a sec, do you mind sending me a message with this member's ID? You and I have dealt a few times in the past without issue. Whoever this member is won't have the pleasure of trying to lowball me though.

    That word confuses me =S

    And I agree with you cygnusx1, I was assuming he wanted a resale lot but never really came out and said it until just a few moments ago when he told me what he usually picks up his lots at. Ill PM you in a bit I hear the 2nd period starting in the other room

    Solution #1: Raise your price for all the cards less than half BV

    Solution #2: Don't deal with him(but you already knew that)
