Looks like they took the image from this sale.

In total, they are charging $50. It's coming from China. I would bet they are going to get in and get out. When eBay or PayPal go looking for them they won't be able to find them and have insurance cover the costs to the buyers.

Looks like you hit the nail on the head, listing is removed and the seller is no longer a registered user

These "criminals" don't cease to amaze on their level of incompetence. They probably could have listed that for $200 and sold the same amount.

USPS First Class rates went up maybe others too, don't know them well enough to report.  I usually ship First Class 8 oz and it was a steady $2.77 for a while, now it went up 0.41 cents to $3.18.  A 15% increase.  Makes selling comics on the bay even less appetizing.

I haven't made a sale in a few days, but hopefully printing your own label still gives a decent discount.

Yea - everything keeps going up and people seem to want stuff cheaper.  I charge $4 to ship 1 book on E-Bay and have gotten a few complaints but with shipping going up and the mailers I use going up and e-bay taking fees from shipping charges I'll have to bump prices up to $4.25 to prevent losing money on each order.

And when ebay announced the postal price changes-- they sent out one of the most confusing charts that included a bunch of nonsense information imo. Like they were trying to justify that you were still getting a discount compared to regular retail postal rates-- and using average rates instead of just listing the new rates for each weight.

This is the chart I am referring to:

As you may be aware, the United States Postal Service (USPS) announced increases on shipping costs effective January 21, 2018.

As a valued eBay seller and frequent user of USPS services, we want to make you aware of these updates.

It's embossed foil but it's not showing up in the pic. I couldn't say to compare it to any other version of a cover but if it's "regular", so be it

yep, they are all chromium.

 

In my own 7th circle of ebay I have a page of art out, $275, to Italy and it is somewhere over there, last heard leaving Milan on 12/22. The buyer filed a case so I am dealing with ebay italy and my money is on hold.

No, never sold in the forums before. This was the first time I'd even linked an ebay sale over here. Surprised that book would even get any attention considering the other books in the pics. It just happened to be in the handful I pulled out

      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.
