Bought book for $30 raw, sold it within a month for $300 and a 4.0 slabbed copy of the book.  Buyer paid for the press & grade and the raw wound up being a 7.5.

No, zero to $50 is an infinite percentage.  example if you buy something for $10, sell for $100, to get the % you 100/10 *100 = 1000% profit.

In my case it would be 50/0 * 100 = INFINITY

edit: I'm using calculus here where you can divide by zero

Bought a DD (supposedly a GD+ 2.5) that got graded as a 1.8 for $270.  Sold it for $380 + shipping to Thailand, 

 

Edit

Oh yeah, bought it in March 2011, sold it in April 2012.  Just a couple weeks over a year, but, close enough.

Donny Cates was at a con here in Fla the weekend his new Guardians of the agalaxy was debuting.   I stopped by a LCS and bought the “premiere” edition of the book (2 per store) for $50.00. 

Between CGC and sigs paid about $75 so I was $125.00 into it. 

Came back 9.8. Sold on eBay the week I got it back for $300.00

Usually I buy high and sell low, but have been known to %$#@ that up once in a while. I bought  two Monster Worlds, one fine and the other fine + for under $10 each and sold them for $103 and $111 respectively within a week.

Bought a Moon Girl from Rick on the boards for $600 or so. Mispriced it on EBay and funny enough Rick bought it back for $450 or so. Missed it so much I paid Rick over $700 to get it back.  What?  Profit?  😵

Been there and done that like a dozen times too. :foryou:
