Default Why I will NEVER auction a high grade card ever again on Ebay!!

Two Diamond Stars. 1935 Red Ruffing SGC 7 $195 BIN. 5 days later, 1935 Red Ruffing SGC 7.5 $145 Auction. Half grade higher, $50 lower. And then had to pay 11% sellers fee on top of that!!! Ebay has seen the last .99 cent auction from me on my high grade finds!! Maybe the low grade stuff under $50 might be ok. The high grade stuff? Forget it!

It looks like you bought it for $138.43 on March 23, and you sold it on April 8 for $141.50. I don't get your beef. You got your money back and you only held the card for 2 weeks. Personally, I'd be pretty relieved I got my money back.

Doesn't matter. Too many people use VCP as the Bible. I got a killer deal from Mile High. The $200 BIN was the right price. The $140 auction was the steal.

My guess is that if you switch to BINs, you will be back complaining that your cards aren't selling.

Peter, does my screen shot not prove ANYTHING to you? Does it not prove BINs are the way to go?

As a general rule, when someone I am talking to about buying a card say VCP, I move on.

Yeah, I agree it should have probably gotten at least $175. But the color on yours is a bit faded and the centering is off as well. And, except for Greenberg, Diamond Stars have not been a good investment the last few years.

Your issue is that too many people know what a particular card is worth?

As the great Yogi once said, "It's Deja Vu all over again". I would swear I have read this exact same post more than once before.
