Last sale was $510. But $200 is probably more reasonable. It’s one of the rarer number variations.

You've really got to wonder if this person doesn't understand the whole 132 card sheet printing process. 

It reminds me of an argument I had with a seller over a 1st Tan Lavirus that was actually a Wonderbread.  I simply asked why the die cut would be different than a white back if the only reason tans existed was because they ran out of white sticker backing sheets.

3 ERROR stickers ANS5 Wacky Packages wrong number & 2 Numbers- from same sheet
https://www.ebay.com/itm/175909829805

Another person who doesn't understand the concept of miscutting from a 132-sticker sheet, and how it devalues stickers and cards opposed to coins or stamps that are quality controlled by a government agency and would make them more valuable.

I think this is simply a case of someone recognizing he pulled some error cards and offering them to people who collect errors.  He acknowledges that they are from the same sheet, and since they were all adjacent it is kind of neat.  Not $49 neat IMO, but neat.

Is it ‘bated’ or ‘baited’?  I’ve always thought the latter was the correct spelling but I’ve seen several instances lately where the ‘i’ was left out.

I believe in this case it is “bated”. A lovely homophone.

"Bated breath" is right.

In fact there's a old joke that goes like this:

Q: How does a cat catch a mouse?
A: He eats a piece of cheese, then waits at the mouse hole with baited breath.

For all intensive purposes, your being to pacific on supposably irregardless grammer, but its more as likely a mute point.

Correct.  With the "i" it could have two possible meanings: to deliberately annoy or to prepare a trap.  Without the "i" it means anxiously awaiting.

Its not even a full box! Its a bonus box!

What could be better, it's a box with a bonus like those "baited" (with the "i") commercials say "but wait there's more!"

At least they are taking best offers!!

Why wouldn't it be worth $150.  The description says it all:

Excellent condition rare, a must have! If you go and have it graded it will receive a extremely high grade

True, but obviously the seller knows little about grading to call it "Excellent" and expect an extremely high grade.  I believe Excellent is a PSA 5.  I would call that a mediocre grade.

Thought I’d complete this set at some point but I simply don’t feel like that’s reasonable at all for that card.

That card looks to be in pretty nice shape, and Skimpy #15 is a tough variation.  $334 seems fair to me, maybe a bit high.

I guess it depends on how much people value condition. I would sooner pay $1500 for Pat’s PSA 8 (which is very nice) than $335 for this.
