I could give you tons more examples.
It's becoming less and less but photos are still a bit of the "wild west" when it comes to buying and selling.

Exactly. I would gladly give the buyer his money back on this one. Small=crystal clear in this case.

Not sure if he is or not, but a good guy nonetheless.

He bought it and he can do what he wants with it. If you think it's overpriced then don't buy it.

eBay is a different audience than an AH. Sellers flip items all the time. Perhaps he doesn't care if he sells it but will sell it for the right price. Or maybe he is listing it so he can avoid paying use tax on $5,000 by calling it inventory.

This is exactly what I always say. Who cares what someone lists it for. It's his money to lose or his to triple. I sold for years to dealers who would double or triple the price they paid me only to sell to other people who were more than happy to pay them more money. Who cares either way. He may not sell it, but if he does my hat's off to him

I 100% agree with Adam and Jason. You bought it, do with it what you will. Why is this even a discussion?

It's a great photo. I was in on the bidding but dropped out late. After all, it's only a snapshot, not an 8x10.

It's true, once you buy something you can mark it up 100 fold if you want or burn it. Or drive your car over it. Or throw it in the lake. But there is something that seems less than upstanding about buying something for $175 and immediately trying to find someone to pay $975 for it. Basically fishing for someone who is not dialed into the market valuation. Not illegal, probably not immoral, but still seems less than admirable.

I see a lot of photos I'd like from people who do this as a living and won't bid for them. Even if I can't find the most recent selling price I assume what they are asking is outrageous.

Moral of the story: bid more at RMY. Cause the next time you see it someone will have it on ebay for way more than they paid for it.
