they are also giving free BIN each month...can't remember how many but as long as it's an auction style listing you get the free BIN on so many listings.

Not defending this type of activity, but doesn't it help these sellers business to have stock that is found when searched for via Google or other search engines besides the eBay searches? How many times have you checked these sellers other listings as a result of them having a 'rare' or popular card and found something that interests you? Maybe the answer here is no or never for most of you. Just one overpriced card means it's not worth looking at the rest of what they may have to offer.

I ended up messaging the guy and saying, "Look, I am interested, but your price is WAY too high, etc. (Like anyone wants to pay a PSA 6 price for a PSA 4).
Funny, if you took away grading, eBay and PayPal fees, you'd probably be closer to the amount you'd want to pay. Maybe that's why these sellers list with BIN. Maybe they aren't willing to part with the cards unless they can recoup these fees.

Not smart in many ways but why don't you just wait for an auction? Why would anyone expect sellers to list BIN's at exact market value? Is that even possible? Just be patient and wait for an auction IMO.

You can easily filter out items by adding a - in front of the term when searching. T205 Cobb -reprint -reprints -2010 -etopps etc. I also use description search and filter names of sellers or words they always use for items I don't want to see listed. I then save the search as t205 cobb and use it when searching.

There are much bigger problems in this hobby than people selling $35-40 cards for $75-80. I understand where you are coming from and it can be frustrating but there are bigger fish to fry!
