I was quoted $130.

If you look at his his feedback, there are a number of them saying things like "nicely packaged" etc.

For that shipping price it better be hand devlivered by the Swedish Bikini Team.

Yeah, it's $128.59 for me.  I think this one belongs in the "List of sellers with exorbitant shipping/no combined ship" thread...

** expired/removed eBay auction **




No box and still over 3 days to go.  I was an Ebay/collecting noob at one point (some people might say I still am  :wink: ) but I dont recall ever doing anything like this.  Maybe I should push up the price a bit more to see just how high "damienmonger" will go.  Or would that be mean?  :)

Yet another moron seller who has seriously over estimated the value of these cards:

Hmm, I'd might be willing to bet that if he moved the decimal place over two places to the left he might still have a hard time selling these cards. :roll:

You know there is nothing more annoying than a newbie seller trying to get the maximun dollar for an item while providing the absolute minimum detail on what they are selling.  Essentially this is panhandling.

Wow, good luck with that, bro. :)



Much like the much-maligned later Dragons that we have discussed in other threads, these cards are either giveaways, kindling, or emergency toilet paper. There is nothing special about them, the artwork sucks, and they are expensive to ship.



I had a factory set years ago ... it did not make it onto the moving truck when I moved back here in 2004. :)

Heh, that price has actually been reduced from the last time I saw it. :roll:   I think the thing that makes it even worse is the fact is that the highest price that I have ever seen one sell for is like $70 and that was last year whenever they were on a serious surge.  They usually hover around $40-$50 nowadays if the condition is almost new.  Lets face it Creep has got to be two IQ points away from being severely mentally retarded, that really can be the only explanation.

I live about 90 minutes from where the seller is and shipping is still over $37.  Maybe I can do a local pick-up :lol:


Heck, it's not much more expensive (relatively) to here in Colorado--$58.39 8O  :!:

As I said on another thread...THANKS CREEPY, you've helped me sell so many copies at $50...nothing like overpriced crap prices to help sell ones at legitimate prices QUICKLY.  Nice of him to help me out with this and so many other idiotic prices....

Here I am trying to find an H1 and an H3, and (talk about overpriced?!?!?) "Creepy" 's got the whole H-series at $239.95 BIN  plus $12.95 S&H.  Also, no postal insurance offered.

$239.95 + S&H? 8O  8O   And NO insurance offered???  Who's he kidding? :?

Could anyone here imagine sending a first-print or a woody by mail without insurance of some sort, or is this normal?

It doesn't make any sense, as it takes less than 30 seconds to fill out and attach an insurance form.  Sounds like a recipe for "lost in the mail" excuses.....

Actually Creep's quality service is really starting to have a considerable effect on his feedback:



http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d ... dback:2:us



Down to 98.8% positve, I won't be surprised to see him go the route of jonb pretty soon.
