Posted By: <b>David Barkus</b><p>I have this one:<br /><br /><img src="http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h186/Barkusd/MAScan1.jpg"><br /><br />My wife and I are expecting our first child in October of this year so it is time to downsize my collection. I have it listed on ebay for $7,500 or best offer. <br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&viewitem=&item=230130837975&rd=1&rd=1" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&viewitem=&item=230130837975&rd=1&rd=1</a><br /><br />So far haven't received anything reasonable. I am not in a hurry to sell it and I will miss the card. I love the big white borders and centering. It's just time to move on to another stage of my life.

Posted By: <b>Jeff Lichtman</b><p>David, the lack of 'reasonable' offers may have something to do with the unreasonable BIN price of $7500. It just sold for $4915 in Mastro's December acution.

Posted By: <b>David Barkus</b><p>I'm aware of that, but a lesser example also sold for $7,162 a month before in the SCP auction. The problem with ebay is that everyone wants to bargain. I will drop my asking price $1,000 to $6,500, but the problem I have found is that when I don't leave room to bargain, all I end up with is offers 50% less than what the seling price should be.

Posted By: <b>Jeff Lichtman</b><p>...and another Bender 8 sold for $4780 right before that. Why not just put it on ebay and sell it for what it's worth?

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>David- when I list on ebay I start every lot at $9.95 with no reserve. And while an occasional obscure or lower grade card may go for a little less than hoped, I've never sold a card of the quality of that Bender that didn't do extremely well. The results often exceed my expectations. Putting a BIN well above retail turns off prospective bidders. Just my two cents.

Posted By: <b>David Barkus</b><p>The one that sold in the Heritage auction was crap. Also, Heritage does not get any play. I don't like to take the risk of an ebay auction with high dollar cards when there might not be many people watching for a given week. If I go the auction route, I will go with a big name auction house and take my chances. I haven't turned down any reasonable offers. Just not looking to fire sale it. It is a very nice 8 and there are people who want a quality example instead of a holder to add to their registry sets.

Posted By: <b>David Barkus</b><p>Barry,<br />Thanks for the suggestion. I have a couple of days left on the listing and I will wait to see if I get any decent offers. If not, I might list it on ebay at a $.99 opening bid. I just prefer to work down from a number and get to a reasonable price than to take the risk of not having a bidder step up to the plate.<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Jeff Lichtman</b><p>David, I find that a card like that will find buyers. If you're concerned that all the deep pocket guys are taking a trip together out of the country away from their computers for a week, you might try a 10 day auction. The card is worth what it will sell for and ebay is a pretty good indicator of interest. That two of the last three Bender 8s sold for less than 2/3 of your BIN may be some indication that you won't do much more on an ebay sale, though.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>David- your PSA 8 Bender is very nice even for an 8, and like you said it is perfectly centered with wide borders. It will sell for its market value... guaranteed.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>You might be right. I'm a firm believer in letting the market decide the value. The lone exception is if you have a piece that's one of a kind, or nearly so. Then I too would try to squeeze every penny out of it.<br /><br />Unfortunately, a T206 Bender is far from one of a kind. A beautiful card no doubt, but it does have a ceiling. Buyers have other places to go if it is too expensive.

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>and this is the probably the scarcest I have.....also the best poor conditioned card I've almost ever seen....there is some chipping on the back, in mostly the blank area which accounts for the grade....<br /><br /><img src="http://luckeycards.com/pd303mothersbender.jpg">

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>You got rooked on that grade- that should be at least a 20, if not a 30.

Posted By: <b>Dylan</b><p>Thats an awesome D303 Leon. I think i see where the paperloss is on the side of the card. SGC can be brutal when it comes to paperloss, no matter how nice the rest of the card is.
