Oh, there was more risk than you would think, I actually I almost lost the book.

I originally offered him $8. He countered with $10. Then I countered with $9. He then declined without a counter. So I was like "dang, I could have gotten it for $10," and shot him another best offer for $10 and got the book.

But hey all's good and I have my $2.

We’ve all been there, and sometimes it results in regret!!!

Yeah I remember purchasing a lot of 2 books, JLA #1 and B&B 30. (JLA 1 was complete but coverless, and 30 was about a 3.0) It was listed for $100. A pretty good price mind you. I messaged the seller for more pics. They sent, pics and I purchased the books. After purchasing I realized the seller sent me an offer (on my other eBay account where I messaged them) for $75. I already purchased the item for $100 and messaged the seller asking if they would be willing to still give me the $25 discount. I obviously got no response.

But hey still got an alright deal.

We like to win because of the "I got it for this price" factor. Not necessarily because it just makes for a good return. More of a feeling of accomplishment thing

on my other eBay account

Why do people have more than one account? I've seen others say they have more than one account also. I only have one ... should I have another? (Am I doing something wrong?)

Some people do it because you get 50 free listings a month per account. I think you can have up to 4 accounts for one PayPal address.

Finally picked up a copy of Swamp Thing #1 for $34. Not a bad price given even the condition stated of FR 1.0.  However, after looking at the scans, and reading the description (complete and attached, just a couple of large-ish tears, and a corner missing from the BC), I can't see how its not at least a 2.0. 

I guess we'll have to see after the book arrives.

I have a few accounts for selling and one for buying. While I'd love to think that all sellers are honest the reality is quite different and every once in a while you get a dishonest seller who either doesn't ship/ships late or way waaaay overgrades. I once dealt with a very well known seller who (I won't mention his name here, but you probably will all know who he is just by describing the situation) made an effort to email me personally when I simply returned an item I didn't agree on the grade with. I didn't leave nor threatened leaving a bad feedback, simply returned the item for item not as described. So he emails me through the email associated with the PayPal account and told me he would do the same with my store if I returned the book. I was shocked that he went to that length, assuming he is a well known seller and sells many many books. Since then I seperated my store from my shopping account.

I grabbed a Swamp Thing #1 on eBay for fifteen bucks three years ago. I made a best offer and, to my surprise, the seller accepted it immediately. The original price was $24.99, but I took a chance with these being the only pictures in the listing:

The tear is less noticeable when unfolded.

Not bad for $15. Low grade copies are pretty cheap even now. I'm thinking of picking up another copy if prices start to go up with the new TV show out.

And hopefully I can find a copy of HOS 92 someday.
