Does anyone else surf Craigslist under collectibles and notice that there are sellers selling sportscards for ridiculous amounts of Money:
(100)-1990 donruss cards(all commons) in a binder for $200
It would seeem to me that they should check around and see what there cards are actually selling for before posting on Craiglist. Dont get me wrong though, there are people out there who dont collect cards but want to buy there family memebr a gift and think they are getting a good deal.

They sell them for that much because unknowledgeable people will buy them. It is a shame, but the truth. What you said at the end is exactly right and if somebody wants to get someone a gift they will look at the price but not as much price to value.

I once sold a box of 2008 UD First Edition Update Baseball on Craigslist. But I only sold it for $25, not something extremely outrageous.

The public perception of cards is way way waaaaay off. One night I was watching a show like cops and they were going through the closet of the supposed drug dealer. They came across some cards and all of them were like, yeah see, expensive rare baseball cards. They were 1991 upper deck.
It is a rip off to charge more than they are worth on craigslist but I think if someone sells them for full high book price then more power to them. Only those looking to buy gifts are gonna buy those. Its better to sell things at a good, fair, solid price, just works better all the way around.
