I snagged this card from a Best Offer on eBay. I really like the Best Offer feature. I dislike how some people use the best offer feature. If I make an offer, its my ‘Best Offer’. I’m a bit of a literalist. So, if I offer 80% of your BIN price, that’s what I am willing to pay. A counter offer of 2% below your price is just going to make me laugh. As a seller, I only rarely counter offer. When I get an offer of 30% of my BIN price, I’m going to assume you aren’t serious. The cards I am listing aren’t the ones where someone has taken the going rate and added $1500 to. My BIN price is typically the highest recent closed sale on eBay. My auto-accept is usually the average going rate. I used to just set the BIN at the average price, but I found my sales results were better when people could knock a few bucks off the price with an offer. I understand that, my brain works the same way.
That’s my little eBay spiel for the day. Bottom line: be reasonable! OK, now onto the card at hand. I have always had a soft spot for minor league and junior issues for players of any sport. This was a sweet hard signed autograph on a card with a nice, simple design. I love cards with a big space for the player to sign. Nice looking signature as well. Hard signed cards give players a bit more room to spread out their sigs, and the result is pretty awesome.
