Default Overselling and Underselling a Card at the Same Time

Joe - it's probably not a good idea to list something as a fixed price if you have no idea what it's worth. Either find out beforehand and then list it as fixed price, or start it at 0.99 and let the market decide.

you didnt know what the card is worth but listed it for 50k? did you honestly think it was going to sell at that price? you know enough about cards to send it to psa but not enough to look it up in a price guide? and you are upset because people laughed at you? and then the sob story about needing the money but only if it is a lot of money. how much did you pay for the card at the antique shop? was it anyway near your listing price? or are you just using ebay to fish for offers and sell offline?

My guess is that the antiques dealer knew exactly what it was worth. And got that amount for it. Throw in the typical dealer speel of claiming ignorance regarding it and wham you get a 50k ebay staring bid.
