#1 - The first rule of Price Variant Club is, you do not talk about Price Variant Club.

#2 - The second rule of Price Variant Club is, you DO NOT talk about Price Variant Club.

#3 - If someone says that's one of the last five I need and pleads, you let him have it.

#4 - Nobody ends auctions early.

#5 - No flaming other members of Price Variant Club because they got the Ringo Kid 28 and you didn't.

#6 - Do not alert members of Price Variant Club for hidden variants. Let them find their own damn variants.

#7 - 35 cent variant collectors are insane.

#8 - If you found a variant through Price Variant Club, you have to find another one.

Sorry, never saw that movie. My pop culture references haven't been updated since about 1989. I'm not sure if the interface is compatible with DVD.

 

Thanks,

No mention of bid stalking other members of the Price Variant Club? That's got to be required behavior.

I know that part, but how many times have you had someone email you a week after the fact when you'd won a "hidden" variant? "Hey, nice catch" or "How much?'

 

I set up a secondary buying ID so that I wouldn't have to field questions on good BINs or hidden lots.

I see guys win hidden variants all the time but I try not to "bother" them unless I really know them. I always make higher than fair market value if I really need the books; otherwise I try not to harrass.

 

Secondary buying IDs work well for the reason stated; however, it can backfire if for example let's say I see a rob_react bid on a variant that I want but not really need, I may leave it alone, but if it is a bidder who I have no relationship with, then I bid with impunity and bring on the pain tongue.gif

There are no rules regarding Hidden Variants.

 

Generally, if you win a hidden variant, it means:

 

1. I don't want it

2. You outbid me

3. It is over priced (see #2)

4. Or it is a POS.

      Little Giant Comics OLD SCHOOL COMIC SHOW 
      Here's the deal, I wanted to create the kind of show I would want to attend.
      GREAT COMICS, GREAT ART & ARTISTS!
      I want to enter a room filled with amazing comics, incredible art and talented artists, I don't think that's too much to ask.
      Seems like every show I attend only has a small amount of comic vendors (usually the same 3 or 4 people I see at every show), the rest of the floor is fidget spinners, Cosplay stopping in front of your booth for photo shoots, sweaty ROOT BEER mugs everywhere dripping on your comics or art, Pirates running around, knick knack patty whacks, energy drinks, Ice Cream vendors and flea market fodder........
      NO MORE I SAY!!
