Guys - I get your point on not making offers if a seller is soliciting offers, but isn't that the seller's right to do so if he wants just as it is your right to not make an offer if you want ? I understand your side, but I see the other side of this as well. I typically put a price when I sell on BST, but recently I won an oddball lot with about 20 cards, and about half of them I knew nothing about, so I solicited offers and got plenty of eager offers and I actually accepted the first offer on almost all of them. This may be the exception, but there is another side. "Put yourself in someone else's shoes" and typically you can see the other side of things. My 2 cents -

Sure, it's the seller's right. All we're saying is it's our right to pass on the item.

It seems to me...in this age of immediate...seemingly infinite information available at all times...one should have more resources available than ever...to find enough info to price their cards?

Jeremy,

It is certainly your right to sell your cards however you deem it best, including a "make an offer" solicitation. If that works for you, great. I personally will move on once I read that because IMO, its your obligation to educate yourself about what your cards are worth, not mine. Others may differ and I understand that. Best,

Kenny Cole

Default Making offers

The odds aren't great of course. But I've rec'd low offers and sold at a sizeable loss at times. Also, Ive scored great bargains here on occasion. Never know, unless you try. Sometimes I get no replies and sometimes I neglect to reply, no sweat. It ain't the freakin prom.

This is a game. Buyers shouldn't take rejected or snubbed offers personally. Seller receiving low-ball offers, likewise. Don't let the chickensh!t eat at you. Besides, I think we're men?

As far as the OP's post, surprising... Too bad it had to be dragged out here. The target could have easily been many of us.

While Im at it. To those Ive snubbed or will be snubbed in the future, my apologies

Go Sox,
Steve

--- Kenny - I couldn't disagree with you more. (Respectfully disagree ) I don't find it my obligation to educate myself about a piece of cardboard that I have no interest in, but would love to sell it to someone that would love to own it. I think the spirit of how a seller deals with the "make an offer" is the key... If someone trully wants to get rid of some cardboard, so be it. The point I am trying to make is it really shouldn't be a big deal to the buyer or seller. Obviously some are happy to make offers and some are not... Let it roll

Jeremy,

LOL. all is good. I just won't waste my time trying to buy a card you are attempting to sell with the "make an offer" option. As I said before, if it works for you, great. I'm just not in on that game. Best,

Kenny
