rockleemyhero Unfortunately not at this time. I am a little cash-strapped and needing money more than cards.

Price of $45 is unreasonable. I could get 3 NM off of TCG for $42.50 each from a trusted seller. For those willing to take some risks, sold listings on eBay go for $35 to $40 right now. Those all come with proper packing too. Your pricing is, frankly speaking, insulting. I'd say a price of $90 is fine for the set.

No need to be rude man. If it's not a sale you are interested in, don't remark on it.

And wow, a whole $2.50 difference.

Makes you out to be cheap. Be nice man. This user is doing their best and just asking for help.

$90 for all 3 is a terrible price lol. TCG low - 10% is $114 for all 3. Also, there isnt a single Teferi listed on Ebay for less than $40. His asking price is fine. Don't act entitled about it just because you disagree with his pricing.

You might want to try selling them on the fb sick deals page. I’ve had good success buying and selling there before.

Arvail does have a point though. It’s hard to justify paying more money to an independent seller with no protection when you can get the card cheaper and with buyer protection and free tracking on tcg player.

Whenever I catch someone posting nonsense in the trading post, I typically point it out. Just looking out for people, especially those new to TO or MtG.

And the points I bring up are valid. That $2.5 is multiplied by 3 across the order. In addition, OP is asking for an additional 3 dollars for proper mailing. Op's total price is $138 for 3 Teferis. Just getting 3 NM Teferis from TCG from a trusted seller is $127.5

That's about 8% off OP's price, the cards are guaranteed to be NM, and the vendor has 1000s of completed transactions and the TCG platform holds its vendors to higher standards than what little protection TO can offer.

Forgive me if I don't have the patience for this kind of bs.

KillDatBUG - Check sold listings. Also, don't forget selling through eBay will have the platform nab a decent chunk of your sale.

Yeah, and? There's sold listings for $45 too. Also, Ebay seller fees are completely irrelevant in this situation because the buyer doesn't pay them. Seller does. It doesn't affect the price paid by the buyer, so it doesn't affect what the sell price listed is.

Of course the price of the ebay transaction matters for both parties.

For example, last weekend I picked up 3 true duals for about 30% below market value. The best part was that both I and the seller were happy with the transaction. I got some insanely good pickups and he got to offload his cards for cash immediately, didn't have to worry about shipping or losing money to cover transaction costs on a platform like ebay, and he was still roughly around buylist prices. In this case, the convenience, peace of mind, and saving on shipping I offered the guy allowed me to pick up duals around buylist prices.

That's a pretty insane example, but if I'm trading directly with a user on TO, we're cutting out the middle man entirely. I can offer you a price that's 5% below what you could sell the card for on eBay and it would still make sense for you to agree to the sale since eBay takes 10% of your transaction.

I can lower the price. I am not above correcting a mistake.
