A large part of me hopes that Berard raffle works out.  It will provide further evidence that the hobby is driven more by bargain hunting than genuine collecting.

I saw that post yesterday but I can’t find it now. Maybe he sold it outright?

I just learned that using past auction results to determine price is "bush-league nonsense." That... doesn't seem right.

I’d think that would depend on what auctions you’re talking about.

I agree with the post to some extent.  When someone posts a jersey for sale, and someone doesn't like your price,  says "I can get the jersey cheaper elsewhere," it makes me not want to respond. Go get it somewhere else.

I suppose it all depends on how you say it. I'd respond better to a polite "this guy's jerseys usually sell for X, so that's my offer" than some jerky "I could go elsewhere." Sure, bud. See ya later.

Auctions can be funny sometimes too. We have all seen stuff in auctions that go for way more or way less than what most think it should go for.

Four days of negotiating with someone. Finally strike a deal. Then, the inevitable, “I will send a money order”.

PayPal should be a requirement for this hobby.

I think I know who you are talking about....if it is the same person I am thinking of, he is one of the few people I blocked. I am sure he is very nice if I got to know him.

Only had one money order transaction. I sent a large amount via two grocery stores to a player on the other side of the country with absolutely no assurance he'd send me the jersey. Turns out, the player sent me an extra jersey for my effort. 

But that has no bearing on a Facebook sale. Whatever you're selling, TBG, discount it 50 percent and I'll buy it via PayPal.

I will admit, if you collect a particular player, it helps to know where they are, even if they’re not available. There’s no sense in searching on a wild goose chase (still don’t know where that term comes from) for a jersey that you already know the location of. 

(Then you wait for that collector to get divorced and the jersey is yours.) ?
