". . .just because someone lists something for $1500, doesn't make it worth that . . ."

So true. When I first started collecting it took me a good while to grasp that.

My wife loves those antique shows where they size things up and dramatically announce what they are supposedly worth. I'm always yelling at the TV what nonsense so much of it is. "Yeah sure its worth $25,000 . . .try finding someone to pay it!"

not sure........I'm actually looking for an apostrophe or a semi colon, but if you are in the market for a hypen, she's a beauty.

I made a joke post about the same topic last week - makes me laugh when I see it, especially here on the board. Do these people think no one is aware of REA??

Ha, great post.

It is instructive though, because when I see a seller doing that I immediately assume all of their wares are priced at rip off flip levels and never give them a second look.

I have bought photos for hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars, then later sold them for 1/3 - 1/2 of what I paid by going either through auction houses or straight ebay auctions. I once lost over $3,000 on a set of cabinet cards and I don't believe I paid the seller much over what he paid. I have also bought rare photos very cheaply and sold them for huge profits.

I have also seen collectors post here, ecstatic over the deal they got, knowing that the item sold for much less previously...which means a seller got royally screwed sometime along the way.

I am not currently losing sleep over either of the above situations. What bugs me is when something gets lost, stolen or dropped and broken.

This is a situation in every area of eBay. I coach a girls high school trap team. When someone shoots 25/50/100 straight targets they get a patch to put on their shooting vest. I can buy these from Federal, Remington and Winchester for less than a dollar each. There is a guy/girl on eBay (username washandwear) who sells individual patches for $5.00 and four patches for $30.00. He sells 20-100 a month. I asked him if they were the same ones I could buy retail from the Federal web site for 50 cents and he replied that he got them from an uncle who had a large collection in his attic. Some things never change.
