Maybe Hold Up On The Auction
Normally I stick only with Carey’s University of Arizona cards but I think the Topps Fire cards are pretty cool and my bid was a whopping $0.25 so I figured it would be a decent addition to my collection if I won, which I did.
This auction got me thinking, at what point does it make no sense to even post up a card for auction? The auction started at $.05 and free shipping and after three bids ended at $.23 so in the end the seller lost money on the price of the stamp alone. It is difficult to comprehend why anyone would auction something knowing that they will be losing money.
