Another Weird eBay Auction I Found...
I've seen dutch auctions that claim the seller needs money because he's had a heart attack, or a woman's selling her dead husband's cards, etc. I've even seen the "selling my ex's cards" idea, which is what this is. But I read the description and had to ask to hear the story, so I messaged the seller. Unfortunately, it wasn't as awesome as I had hoped:
"the cards were an ex's. he was a collector of cards, and left them in my family's basement while we dated. one weekend, while i was away, he decided to cheat on me, and never came back around for the cards, or to allow me to confront him."
I have this feeling it's a greasy guy posing as a woman. HA-HA!
or merely check eBay auction #280282813019I'm always looking to trade cards for original Nintendo (NES) games or rare D-Wade or MJ cards! Also, when sending cards out, please make certain the cards are well-protected and well-packaged.

I can totally imagine a collector falling in lust with the girl in the pic and driving one thousand miles to her door, bouquet-in-hand, only to find the real seller on the other side of the door.I'm always looking to trade cards for original Nintendo (NES) games or rare D-Wade or MJ cards! Also, when sending cards out, please make certain the cards are well-protected and well-packaged.

Maybe she had a lots of negatives on her old name and made a new one. I've seen crazier auctions (like the guy trying to sell a dollar bill autographed Chris Webber for $1,000,000), but the chick auction still made me grin...I'm always looking to trade cards for original Nintendo (NES) games or rare D-Wade or MJ cards!

I've seen these auctions all over EBAY. The photo used isnt even the person, it's a ploy to get people to bid because they assume that the "chick" doesnt know what she is sending out and you have a chance of picking up one of the decent cards that she just so happened to place in the photo.
"She" knows far to much about the cards to be a chick. Now I know there are women who collect cards and may know some about the cards themselves but "she's" far too good with "her" descriptions. Hell, my girlfriend has helped me log all of my cards and she still wouldnt know which one is good or not. lol
Also, the fact that "she" is even trying to sell them in those piddly little lots shows that something else is going on here. Way to unload your commons though, that is for sure.
And finally.......if in fact that "she" is in fact the individual in the picture.....Who in their right mind would cheat on that?!!!!
Unless of course shes a butter face... LOLLooking for 49ers ONLY!
Looking for Michael Robinson and Delanie Walker

In the picture with "her" in it, the card is floating in mid-air! He got a picture of a girl (not hard to do), then photo shopped a picture of a card into the bottom right corner. That persons a terrible lire also...

I had to bump this thread. For just under 10K you could buy just about any card out there... even this Stacey Augmon card!
Here are the highlights:
"BUY IT FOR YOURSELF, BUY IT FOR YOUR CHILDREN, GRAND CHILDREN, OR EVEN AS A GIFT AS THE VALUES CONTINUE TO CLIMB...."
"Question & Answer Answered On
Q: Hi Audrey, I appreciate your reply and was wondering how you price the cards you sell considering that there are many cards that seem to be identical however have a HUGE variance in the sell price example this card I've seen for under $5 and you've got it at almost 10k not graded. I'm finding examples like this often which I don't think eBay can explain to me as well as yourself. All I am asking is for a little help in understanding why and I offered what I did as a token of appreciation for your assistance. Cheers, Adrian May-13-13
A: Hi Adrian, I cannot give advise to people as I think everyone prices their things differently but for me I price my things based on value and condition to which I think plays major factors in what things are worth. What one individual may think is worth a specific amount another may not. In sports it varies from player to player and again the value and condition. I am a bit confused though because you say that you have been collecting for years and are unfamiliar with this stuff. I myself don't know of any collector that does not know about prices, grading and the sort. Thank you for your generous offer for payment but I respectfully decline. Just for offer; EBay is very knowledgeable and helpful in so many areas and can most definitely explain and help with so many things in so many areas of subjects. When I first started selling my things back in November I was calling them four and five times a day sometimes confused about things, including how to price and list things as well as picture taken. Stacy is a fabulous player and made record and as far as I know is very valuable and as time goes on will most likely continue to grow in value, especially where he is now retired. I have only seen one other card identicle to mine here on EBay and is not described in the condition as mine. Mine is in the condition as if it just came off the p-ress literally. Some folks may not know about pricing as you have so elegantly suggested in yourself wherefore they undervalue their items as well. I cannot answer for them; again just an educated guess. Audrey"
Another eBay seller has one for $3.99
And if one can't afford the Augmon, she also has a Gino Torretta signed photo for $450.
