This auction seems a bit excessive

There is a lot of stuff, but 80K. I don't think so.

That picture he has is very crappy. I wish he had some more pictures.....especially if he expects someone to pay 80k for all that.

He's probably including the camera he used to take that photo. That thing must be worth a fortune!

You could pay 80K and then visit his basement for the stuff. YMMV, bring a forklift.

It says he'll accept a money order/cashier's check.

Still, for $80k, you'd think he'd want to but up a better and more representative photo. I can't make out one title, or tell what anything is in that pos.

I can make out Dragon Force for the Saturn but that is it.

I'd definetely place a bid if it started out at 99 cents. :)

No way in hell I'm buying it now.

If only he had Dreamcast maraccas, I'd take out that 2nd mortgage....

It's really quite a collection, better than mine in many ways, not as good in others (no rare ps1 rpgs-that I noticed). No mention of rare guide books (that I noticed).


But at a MUCH more reasonable price it would be worth a look.

So he expects someone to pay 80K based on bad feedback and a blurry picture.... wow...

There's no way in hell that collection is worth $80,000.

I bet the new list price of all that stuff doesn't equal $40,000 let alone $80,000.

I think this guy's under the delusion that old game systems and games actually appreciate in value. Sure, you have your exceptions, but for the most part games are not an investment.

His last feedback is almost 10 months old.

I would tend to think the guy is doing it as some sort of joke, were it not for the fact that the listing fee on $80,000 has got to be through the roof.

He honestly should have started it out at a penny. I couldn't imagine what his listing fee alone is.

I guess I could always write him a check ;)

It's certainly NOT worth 80,000 though.

In addition to games being a unreliable long term base investment, piling all that stuff together isn't helping. Sure it saves him time...but he should have split much of that up...even if he wants to rip people off. :lol:

I don't know if I'd call him a "ripper." Ignorant maybe.

ok l have benn ripped so many times in other forums i know what what to watch out for.

1. If the person you trade with get reffed by people with 1 ref, It is most likely that person was the ref that the other trader received. This shows he probably made a new account and made fake refs.
2. the person traded with the other guy for all his refs, While the other guy only had ONE ref? If you traded with a guy more than 50 times, shouldnt he have at least 50 refs? You can guess who gave him the ref too.
3. I call if stacking. Where you get alot of refs, get other people to send first, then blahblahblah(since its ebay, refs dont matter). I learned a trick where you cant be tracked. Give them another address or your old one, and get your stuff there.
4. IP checking is the best thing you can do, but ebay has no admins to watch the boards.
