Yes, it is on the buyer to know the slightest :censored: thing about comics if they're spending that much on a single issue. If they don't have a clue, they should stick to paying cover price until they do.

What if they instead bought a CGC 4.5 Fantastic Four 52 that was listed for $10,000? They would be screwed over far worse in that case. But you couldn't blame deception, only complete ignorance.

So, someone not knowing something about a subject gives license to a seller taking advantage? If thats the case, why would ebay even have it in their rules to include such info in the description. Even if "no returns" truly meant no returns in ebay world, I think there is no question or argument ebay would refund this due to reprint not being included in the description. The buyer easily has a case here and as others have pointed out, it looks like this has been returned before. Equating $125 with spending $10,000 is not comparable. The amount of research should definitely go up as the amount goes up, but thats more common sense than anything. It still doesn't give a seller license to screw someone over ethically by leaving out crucial information simply because they think the buyer should be the one to look that information up or just simply know it. If you look at other sellers for this book, you will see the word reprint in their listings.

The listing wasn't perfect, but there are many far worse listings that require much more than just basic knowledge to see through. This listing provided the proper title, the issue date, and great pictures.

If you don't know anything and are still willing to spend large amounts of money, there are only three relevant questions:

1. When are you going to get screwed?

2. How badly are you going to get screwed?

3. How many times are you going to get screwed before you realize it?

Of course, this is all assuming the buyer didn't understand exactly what they were buying.

He looks like a panther and his name is taken from a pretty famous name.

Sorry to sidetrack the discussion, but I'm a HUGE Black Panther fan, and I try to correct the myth about the name. The Black Panther comic book character (first published July 1966) pre-existed the establishment of the Black Panther Party (established October 1966).

In fact, Marvel temporarily changed his name to the Black Leopard to disassociate him from the group. It obviously didn't stick and they changed it back.

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
