Default When you see prices like this do you automatically assume shenanigans?

So in my email notifications from auctionzip I get notice of this online sale.

General commodity level stuff, very similar to what I usually have. Then I look at prices so far with 3 days left...

...HOLY CRAP

$350 BVG 4 1960 Mantle
$225 BVG 4 1965 Mantle
$450 BVG 5.5 1962 Mantle
$550 BVG 4.5 1955 Bowman Mantle
$275 BVG 4.5 1963 Mantle

Tons more. It makes me leery of bidding on any of the reasonable cards. Am I paranoid?

All I can say is that a lot of people like to over pay for cards. I see it all the time with cards I try to bid on. They either don't know what the current value of the cards or are bidding based on what they see in Beckett.

Default wow

I sold a 1962 Topps Mantle psa 5.5 that was pretty nice for about $300. Maybe I should have sold it through that auction house if they can get $450+ for a bvg. I have occasionally overpaid for a card I want, but none of those are particularly hard to acquire.

Let me know what auction house if you dont mind. When it's done is fine if you don't want to out it. I might have some Mantles to send them.

When I see auctionzip, I think it's probably in a region of country bumpkins who aren't as knowledgeable about market value. So no, I don't assume shenanigans.

I assume shenanigans for almost everyone and am happy on the occasions there are none.
