Too funny!  Here is another one by Good 'Ol Ronnie Rocker on eBay.  He is still peddling his swill after all these years....   this one is in Poor/Fair condition at best IMHO.....  and he is asking what?  I would be embarrassed to even list it at more than .99 and hope someone wants it as a filler or a bookmark!!  (all in good fun!)

If you look at the scan of the back it's not even a Paul Maul silhouette. Looks like Mutt's or maybe Pure Hex.

I strongly suspect a Mutt's was next to it in the stack [for a long time] which is what caused that. Pure Hex has a longer neck on the bottle...and, this would make sense as the checklist sequence would have Mutt's right under Paul Maul.  :)

I've actually seen that before. Not sure where these people's heads are that make them think those have any value....

Not the most extreme example by any stretch, but has anyone noticed how common it is for sellers to overvalue the 1979-80 reissues?  I check eBay occasionally for random lots to see if I can bag some Series 3-4 titles that were never repeated again in the albums or Flashbacks, for making homemade magnets mostly, and Iím amazed how commonly minimum bids start at $1 or more per sticker, sometimes north of $2 each.  Even if they came straight out of packs, these prices seem way out of whack to me.  A search for ď1980 lotĒ reveals most of the listings to be like this.  A patient buyer can find common series OS lots at cheaper prices than this.  Crazy.

When I see listings like this, I get pumped up, because, based on this "NM-" 6-Up, ALL of my stickers would easily come back from PSA as 10's! And all of my copyright error stickers (borderless) would probably return as 8's & 9's!

What's better than purchasing a slabbed, PSA 6, legitimate Wacky Packages Hostess Pair for $309.89?

Well, it's quite simple... purchasing these "Excellent Condition/White Backs*RARE* NM Mock Hostess Pair Of Stickers" for $319.00!

Sure, you may be paying a little more than you would for the real deal, but these are the ONLY "Mock Hostess Pair of Stickers" listed on eBay... er, well, with the exception of the other "Mock Hostess Pair of Stickers" listed on eBay... with a BIN of $329.00

Yes, but that doesn't make it valuable -- only demand will drive that.

It depends.  >:D   How many bags were produced? Are the bags autographed? Is there a certificate of authenticity? Was the bag meticulously sealed in a PVC free, acid-fee, UV protected barf bag binder page?

We can find out the accepted best offer. Crazy that there were only two 9s for so long and there have been three more in the last few years. This one looks toned.

I agree, it looks toned, and I wonder what the back looks like - probably toned, too.

Remember the good ol' days when eBay charged you a listing fee that was based on your starting price?  It would make people think twice before listing something at an extravagant price.

I remember the days when you could post your email address (or even have it as your user id), and get in touch with other ebay members - that was the good old days to me.......  Now, we can't know who we're dealing with, and ebay gets a cut of pretty much everything sold on the secondary market, so they don't need listing fees anymore.
