I've seen the RC go for much more, and in some stores I've looked at (physical ones, not online) it tends to go for about $60 (which is why I like to buy them online and then trade them in for store credit.) Price fluctuates a lot online... I wouldn't pay that much though.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Yeah, I list high grade Rules Cyclopedias for around $55-60 in my ebay store.  



They never last more than a month . . .

Now, I try not to criticize, but this is just silly.



Diablo II





Now, normally, I would just laugh.  But this auction just ended:



Diablo II



. . . or rather, the seller ended it with about 4 hours to go because it had no bids at 99 cents.   :roll:   I had a snipe set for around $5, so I emailed him and offered $5.



He told me "no" and has relisted it for $175 (or best offer  :D  )





So, there is the lesson . . . when something doesn't sell for 99 cents and someone offers you $5 . . . try to sell it for $175.  :D









I just needed it for research anyway . . . it is kinda hard to find . . . even though no one wants them . . .

Yeah, I've seen them go for over $20 with water damage. 8O (The RC, that is.)

(Only got mine for $10 because the seller didn't include a picture.)

Well when you have an auction like this to base your price on:

What do you expect?

Glad I have my copy already. Looks like they're ultra-mega-super-duper valuable.

Hey, did anyone bother to check the final price on this yet?  It got even more stupid(a lot more stupid as a matter of fact) after I last looked.  I just can't even fathom the lack of brain power that led to that final auction total....

You could feasably get a 3rd print woodgrain for that price. :?

Oh the seller would be laughing, and I'd say he'd be very pleased in the final price.

I was looking at it from the buyer's side if he checks other prices they've gone for.

Having said that, if they're both happy at the moment there's no harm done?
