we've already established that historical prices realized are kept and found on ebay and AH's...why not BST? And on BST it would only be "Asking Prices" not final. So your comment about advertising and no longer being available is nonsensical to this discussion.

Asking prices
Ebay: Asking prices disappear after 6 months.
Website: Asking prices may disappear at any time.
Auction sites: Auction sites come and go. Not all auction sites maintain opening bid pricing or reserve information for you to never endingly stroll through.

Sale prices
Ebay: Private sale prices are not displayed readily.
Website: Sale prices are not displayed readily at all.
Auction sites: Not all auction sites maintain a history for you to never endingly stroll through or may disappear at any time.

Seems right on par to me. These items are businesses. People selling cards on this forum may or may not be.

Some of it. Just like you can get some of the past prices on the Net54 website, but not all of them.



The point is, your peeve will never be satisfied, here or anywhere else. Insert another quarter to play again.

AJ - We just don't agree, but you seem to claim I am taking from the community at large by doing this. All your examples are for the betterment of the hobbyist and just b/c its helps the hobbyist does mean it helps the hobby. But really, you've called me silly, you've made references to confusius and I really doubt you are putting an ounce of energy into understanding someone else's view besides your own. So in the end, tough shit.

I understand all the viewpoints given but you've given zero rebuttals that make sense. Feel free to keep erasing your prices and I'll leave mine up. Everyone else is free to do the same. Are you a selfish person or one that wants to help the community?

I really enjoy helping the community, when I list a card for 1/3 of the market price.

I get 17 "I'll take it"s for every one in the community who is kind enough to let me know of my error, whether due to ignorance or a typo.

Helping the community is not a universal goal of Net54 members. Believe me.

I've been around here long enough to know who my friends are, as well as the other estimated 90%. Don't worry, if you consider me a friend, you are in the 10%.

Marketing on BST comes in many forms. Mine is no doubt considered ridiculous by some and ingenious by others, but I will treat you with respect as long as you reciprocate and will communicate privately and promptly regarding any transaction in progress.

What is left on a listing after the fact is the seller's prerogative - period.

Negotiating sales or trades publicly is not my style, nor would I suggest my style to or impose it on anyone else. 'nuf said.

Carry on.

Yes sellers obviously have right to delete or leave up prices. No one arguing otherwise. Hopefully more than not realize the benefits to themselves and the community and leave them up.

Can we get a chant?

Leave them up!

Leave them up!

Leave then up!

Muhahaha

I certainly hope that I have a lot of friends on this board...that has been my goal from day one.

If you were truly interested in benefiting the hobby you'd start a thread sharing actual hobby/card knowledge and not put so much emphasis on prices, values, etc.

Default My Take

While it's not a huge deal to me, I generally don't like people knowing how much I pay for things, cards or otherwise. If me not wanting to share that info somehow leads to someone paying more than they would have otherwise, and that's what we're really talking about here, then so be it.

I dont disagree with that. However when you hear sellers in negotiations say 'cant do it for that, i have more than that into the card' If i then saw the asking price on that very same card in a prior recent sale for less (assume that was the card the seller previously bought) than what the seller was asking then I would know about the seller integrity for example..

basically im fine for all the secrets, even though in houses everyone knows what people paid for the most part, but i dont want to hear it from sellers how much they paid for a card when they try to negotiate but that very same seller removing prices of what the asking price was on a card they bought. cant have it both ways for me..
