Some Buyers Leave Me With Questions Instead Of Money

A bit of a rant today.

I have cards listed on COMC and I keep up with the pricing, changing them about once a week depending on the market. I have a 2015 Contenders autograph card listed at $1.15, there is only one card cheaper. I got an offer last night of .63 cents, I countered with .85 cents, probably more than fair and considering I paid .60 cents to have it processed by COMC so I was being reasonable. The guy came back with .63 cents again.

Who they hell does that? I mean come up a penny or two but to come back with the same offer I just countered what did he expect? Needless to say I just declined it outright, I probably should have come back with $1.25 just to be an ass.


  1. Yeah, some people just don't understand how to haggle.
    I don't have any experience with COMC, but I love the Best Offer on Ebay. I'll throw out a low ball offer expecting the seller to counter, and I almost always will take the counter. Occasionally though they'll accept my first offer and then I feel like I'm making out like a bandit!

  2. That is really annoying, and as Tom alluded to, it does happen on eBay as well. The whole point of a best offer option is to agree on a price somewhere between yours and theirs. When a buyer (or seller) refuses to budge, I almost always walk away on principle - unless it's something I really want.

  3. I had a rough day at work. Jackie Chan just made me smile.
