I just don't get it. Why would you post something for twice what you paid for it on a well publicized auction that draws many of the major negro league buyers. Is it a serious attempt at sale or just an online eBay museum

according to a few people on this forum, people regret not placing another bid in the first auction, so they're willing to pay a 50 percent markup a week later. I guess.

Wasn't referring to that postcard in particular, but I suppose that if you're willing to pay a 50 percent markup within a week, what's 100?

Maybe there are different buyers on eBay than RMY. I'm sure the owner might be flexible on his price. I've seen type 1 photos marked up well over 100 percent recently on eBay which were recently won from another auction house.

I've seen $40 RMY sales on ebay for $750. Not 80. Not 120. 750.

Keep in mind, this is a very small photo, I believe the RMY price realized was way above expectations. Personally, I don't believe the buyer, now seller, will be able to recoup their original investment.
