Do not, I repeat do not, try Larry Harris's approach of scamming hundreds? of collectors to make tens of dollars. I mean where is the ROI on that?

I've only had good experiences on BST.

I just question going before the most educated card collector group in the world and saying basically "hey, I'll sell this $6,000 card to you for $10,000." Seems like a strategy doomed to fail. I strongly suspect that uneducated consumers are much easier to pull one over on.

While not on that scale, I have been known to pay $100 for a $60 card I needed and was having a hard time finding more than once.

I am 67 and over the years have come to discover that some people want to sell me stuff for more than I want to pay. I try to not let it vex me too much anymore.

IF anyone on our BST doesn't go by their real name in transactions there I would sure like to know about it. They won't be there any longer. Charge what you want but be who you are .

Just remember that all cards are equal, but some cards are more equal than others.

you also have b/st. buyers willing to offer SMR when at the time its far below what a card sells or paying no regards to relative centering.. for...i remember i was selling t206 green cobbs and i was quoted SMR several times at b/s/t.

As far as flipping from big auction houses to ebay ...some people want to pay with credit card and willing to pay more with credit then they would by paying with a check .that could be one reason people attempt that.
