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:




** expired eBay auction **




What do you expect?

Glad I have my copy already. Looks like they're ultra-mega-super-duper valuable.
If anyone wants to trade a mono tourney, I'll do a straihgt-up swap.

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?

I will buy all the complete 3rd print woodies in at least decent condition that you have at that price.

Every bidder save the first one has less than 47 feedbacks. Rookie collector bidding at its best. 8O  8O
