    I love Craigslist

    Moving my mother found thousands of baseball football cards etc...rookie Derek jeter...rookie. Nolan Ryan's ...just too much to crates full font have time to sell them...call me make a deal today they are going cheap someone can make a serious profit
    My first e-mail:
    "I'd give you $5 for them just to see if there's one or two things worth keeping"

    Reply:
    "All worth something to someone one was 275...*have a Roger staubauch plaque mounted 134 Barry sanders plaques wrapped.... emmitt smith...etc...no man I'll keep if have to I don't have time to go thru them ..so I'm trying get rid of them firva few hundred roll... Not to mention the 800 in plastic boxed ...rookie cards still in cases take care"

    My Reply:
    "I apologize! I would have loved to see the encased stuff. The only two pictures in the ad I saw had the two big tubs and the binder."


    The pics from the listing?





    I seriously hope he doesn't think the tubs count as keeping this in plastic boxes...

    Nope... too many SLIGHTLY educated card owners. Much harder to deal with than a totally uneducated seller.

    Offering $5 is a total jerk move.

    A jerk move? If you want to sell something then present it in a manner that reflects the money you are looking to get out of it.

    Re: I love Craigslist

    Took me a few times to read it to understand.

    But when you're looking for a "few hundred roll", which means at least $300, two pics of tubs filled with mass produced cards literally thrown into it is NOT the way to sell.

    LOL! Things like this do make you wonder... like how many awesome cards are just sitting in a tub like this

    In other news, I think the $5 offer is laughable

    Hey, if the guy wants more than $5 then he needs to put some sort of pricing in his listing.
    If you want me to take two tubs worth of cards that I'll likely have to put into plastic bags at the curb - then I'm going to make you an offer based on that.
    If he had come at me with $50, I may have considered it... but a few hundred? The likelihood of there being any item or cumulative ITEMS in there worth $50 is very slim so I would have - again, likely - been paying $50 to dispose of someone's garbage.
    [MENTION=10405]Hawk8[/MENTION] - If he responds to me, I may tell him to hold onto them until the show in January and I'll gladly go through them there.

    If you're interested in them at more than that, I can forward him your e-mail address if you'd like.
