Am I out of touch?

If you see an amazing sale on ebay this is a great place to discuss it

Am I out of touch?

Postby footycard » 08 May 2012, 15:32

I have listed a full set of Hall of Fame Team of the Century cards at what I thought was a reasonable but quite high price.
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/110873958603

looking at this listing here from a dealer that I would assume is in touch with the going market.
has just the ablett listed alone for 1/3 of what I value the whole set.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/251056618569

Am I that outta touch with card values today or is he just being a donk?

Sunshine Collectables list his items about the same as cardzone (sometimes a bit more). Where I could not find a platinum listed on Cardzone his non platinum ablett is $69, making yours around the correct mark. Footycards.com.au did have the ablett platinum listed for $299 making sunshine collectables listing fair and warranted. so the answer is you are not out of touch as far as pricing goes but your lack of knowledge with the platinums isn't where it should be :D

Not quite sure what you meant by that remark, but assuming he knew it's worth and he got it cheap and bought it to make a profit as a good business man would, given his outlay and Ebay final fees he will make an okay profit, nothing fantastic, it might not sell straight away so then you have to take into account his cash flow is tied up until it does sell. hardly seems worth the trouble
