I know this has been brought up here many times and if this is a repeat post please take it down, But I scroll through the facebook pages and see what people are selling and I go on eBay to see what prices are out there and look for deals on books when I can find them and the prices people are willing to pay because it is a graded book is beyond me.
I saw a book graded 9.2 and when I looked up the graded price it was 3.92 for a value it did have a signature on it but still. It was selling for close to $40 and then the winner of the auction had to spend another 13.99 to get it shipped so it will be close to a $55 purchase for a book that CGC or CBCS says is worth $3.92 I don't know if its because it has the case around it or the signature. I've also seen books that were graded with a $20 value going for $80-90 plus shipping. And I do not blame the sellers on this one either. If I could get a book that was cheap and sell it for a price above and beyond the asking price I would.
I know everyone will say that the book is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it but still if the book is graded you know the value of it according to those companies. I just don't see the point in overpaying for something that isn't worth it.
