Default Biting one's tongue

I was about to send a note to someone here on one of the BST boards asking why he is selling the card he is selling for a nice chunk more than he paid for it 5 days ago on ebay. I've never sent such a note before.

Also, there are currently several examples of this graded card on ebay for LESS than what he is currently asking, so it appears he actually overpaid for his card. For some reason this struck me as insulting: to expect me to pay more than the going rate on ebay and also help him make a tidy profit in only 5 days time.

I thought I'd offer him $1 less than he paid on ebay so he'd know I knew. But why, right? What do I care, really? Let him take advantage of someone else. It's not my responsibility to call this guy out. It's not as if it's our duty here to protect each other from unscrupulous sellers.

Agree?

There is nothing that can be gained by doing this and selling something for more than you paid for it, even a lot more than you paid for it is perfectly fair. Walk away.

you must have a lot of time on your hands to worry about such things.

To keep it baseball related

It was a card I knew nothing about, so I did 2 minutes of research on ebay and found what I found. It just rubbed me the wrong way, that's all.

Just curious would others would do - it seems I made the right call. And, yes, I happen to have lots of time on my hands this particular Sunday morning. It's awesome actually!

When did trying to sell a card for more one paid become unscrupulous?

What exactly is the right amount of profit to make?
