If he lists again, over/under on asking price?

$555 or Spin Again.

I'd trade him straight-up for half a Gem car.

Dream: sell my "rare" Lingo watch on eBay for $1,000
Reality: sell my "rare" Lingo watch on eBay for $10.

Sigh.

You know, the thing is some of the watches he has are pretty cool. And a few are reasonably priced.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Well, they know their audience.

First rule of Ebay:  It only takes one.

Matt nailed it, it only takes one.  I have been around for a long time on eBay.  The things that make me shake my head in disbelief.

It is like the special "rare" board games because they are 50+ years old.  Old does not equate to rare, nor does it equate that that $75 price tag on your first edition Password game with two ripped corners an a missing card . . . until someone pays that much for it.

Not quite on topic, but I could see myself paying 25.

My thoughts exactly.  Rare =/= valuable.

Dream: sell my "rare" Lingo watch on eBay for $1,000
Reality: sell my "rare" Lingo watch on eBay for $10.

Best I can do is bout tree fiddy.

I still remember the 3Ws game I found at the old B&G club I used to go to. Awesome condition, and all the pieces, but I guarantee it wouldn’t fetch much on eBay. (And I wish I had convinced them to let me have it.)

Down to $800.  I've never sold on eBay, do you have to pay for a listing if it's unsuccessful?  Just curious how much (if any) this effort is costing.

No.  A percentage of the final sales price goes to eBay.

A couple weeks ago, I put in an offer which was quickly passed upon.  Slowly but surely we are making our way towards the price I had in mind.
