What am I missing here?
« on: March 27, 2015, 10:28:43 AM »
I saw this ebay auction:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Topps-Wacky-Packages-from-the-1970-039-s-111-cards-and-74-puzzle-pieces-/261815309041?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cf56892f1&nma=true&si=9t7Mu5CXi14ohPAKxsO1Sa%252B4xag%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

I see a few higher dollar cards (in vg- condition) but most are trashed. I even see what might be an Oddie boy - but it's ripped. Regular cards in this condition would sell for .25 ea. I would think about the same for puzzle pieces like this. Even with the spic & span, paul maul, lavirus & all the rest, maybe $50 or $75. Why did this jump to $180? Newbies or is there something I'm missing?

You could almost ask "are these people nuts?"

Yes. I'm guessing someone may have asked if some of the 3rd series were whitebacks or some of the 1st were luds. Other than that, a price spike on this low quality stuff is baffling. Especially given the current wacky market.

The stickers with the corners chewed off are very rare!  :^)

the only thing I noticed that had value (only if it was in better shape was) Error spit and span, Lavoris and a maddie boy with out the blue stripe.  but in the condition the set is in I would move the decimal 1 place to the left.

As I've said before, my auctions never have these amazing results. Maybe I need to create a new account or something.

Maybe you need an ultra cool account name like "big fruity"

There was also a "Run Tony" and Pall Mall - both seems to be in good shape -

How about the one auction with 3 only VG- condition cards that were RED LUDs...auction went for $425 - really - seems a bit high!!

So, likely, was the bidder.
