Now I love watching the Hurricanes even though they really stink this season. This guy I am absolutely certain is fed up with the team and is watching his collection value plummet. So hey it’s Christmas time and this would make for an awesome gift for any Hurricanes fan.

$200.00 ,this is for all listed and i have a few other singles ill throw in too. Will not seperate this collection for someone wanting a single. If you are a dealer, the same price for you as well, price is firm. Reply by email.if you’re serious i will contact you.
Great Christmas gift for that certain Canes fan ! Sure.they’re having a tough time right now,but, they will come back strong, they always do.
First Take – I don’t even have to email this guy to know that he is a complete scammer. You get 16 autographs and 21 game used cards (37 total). At first glance 37 cards for 200 dollars or just about $5.50 per card. Not too bad except for one thing, among some of the better cards (Staal) there are some stinkers, not worth the card they are printed on. So I think I’m going to take the $3 an autograph and $1 a game used approach and offer, rounded to $70. I think that is a fair price.
Me: Man the Canes really suck, how about a hometown discount?
CI: haha yeah they really have it bad this year. No the price is $200 firm.
Me: Have you gotten a lot of offers on this one?
CI: Yeah, but no one has come close to what I want. What is your offer, I am assuming you have an offer.
Me: Well my offer is 70 bucks, 3 dollars each for the autographs and a dollar each for the jerseys. I think that is fair.
CI: Wow that’s a low ball, are you serious, do you know anything about cards?
Me: Nope not a thing, but I know that if I go on eBay I can get it cheaper.
CI: Ha you go right ahead and give it a shot I doubt it. When you come to your senses let me know.
Me: So what if I upped it to $75?
CI: Unless its 200 then no way.
Me: How about $80? I came up $10 at least you can negotiate with me.
CI: Dude, fuck off, and quite wasting my time with this shit, you are probably a scammer anyway.
Me: You’re right, what I like to do is pay for what a card is worth. To me the card is only worth what I would pay for it on eBay. What if I had offered $150 would you have taken it?
CI: 150 is still not enough, go to hell asshole.
Me: Already been there talking to you, good luck trying to dump a crappy team’s worth of cards. Do you also have the 2008 Detroit Lions team set? No I bet you wanted too much for those as well.
CI: Try peddling your shit somewhere else. See ya shithead!
Me: Thanks for listening to my shit bonehead. Good luck unloading your crappy collection.
End of Emails
Conclusion: All things aside, it’s Craigslist, it’s all about the discout. Don’t even post an ad if you aren’t willing to negotiate. The 200 wasn’t a horrible price but right now given how horrible the Canes have been it’s the equivalent of buying last year’s Detroit Tiger cards, or this year’s Washington Nationals cards (without Strasburg). The market is just crappy right now and it’s unrealistict not expect people to negotiate. This one wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be, but we can’t have awesome ones all the time.
