It’s been a slow season for adding more sets to my collection. There’s been a number of good sets listed, but a surprising number of bidders. At this point, I’m keeping my bids limited — if someone wants to out-bid me for a set, that’s fine, I’ll bid on the next one. I’m also keeping my maximum bids lower — I don’t “need” more sets at this point, so I’m not going to run up the prices.
The most recent acquisition is a good example: the set was originally listed at $50 + $25 shipping, and saw no takers ($75 used vs $155 new). The seller re-listed it at the same price, but with the “Buy it now or Best offer” option. I offered $25 instead of $50; he countered with $40; I countered with $30; he accepted. That’s ~$100 off the new + shipping price.
