Default Most Overpriced Item on eBay

Either in dollar amount or percentage. Let's see who can find the worst offenders.

Here's my favorite: a Cobb notebook cover that's maybe worth a few hundred bucks (at best) is on sale for $11,270 -- after the seller generously discounted the item by $980.

That's too easy, Jeff, maybe you need to set parameters? So many stupid listings, like this, maybe a $2 card:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Babe-Ruth-b...sAAOSwmo5ZnaqV

I have never understood the need to list something like this that will never sell. If it is a really cool card that someone wants to put up as an e-bay museum piece and make sure they don't sell it, okay, I guess I get that. But this one?

Its not vintage, but this Jose Uribe card seems a little high to me:

True -- we need some parameters: how about the card has to be marketed as if the seller actually thinks he's going to convince someone to buy it?

I think Leon pointed this one out the other day. The seller seems to have convinced himself it's worth his ask.

This.

Last one sold for $1,900. Think they'd be offended with a reasonable offer?

What about actual realized prices with finalized bids that hint at money laundering, shilling or an inexperienced seller who will sh*t their pants when they get the Ebay bill from the shilled up joke auction they put up?

I thought this went pretty high:

Love the "position" inscription on the back of the card.
