Market cracks me up

SDS

I find it hilarious how cards fly up in price.

$4,500 ( What is this person thinking? $4,003 would have gotten you first on the sell list...)
$4,002
$4,001
$4,000

Next card after that $4,500 ends up being close for a bit until someone throws up $5,000 for no reason.

Some people's kids I guess....

SDS

Use the card now>wait 20 minutes bidding up by 1 stub.

SDS

If you buy it out right, that doesn't apply to what I am saying above. I am talking about people throwing up bids "to buy" so they are still waiting. But going from $4,002 to $4,500 doesn't "decrease" wait time. Know what I'm saying? @mrcityofwin

SDS

I love how whatever price I pay for a card it immediately drops 20% in price as soon as I drive it off the lot.

I find it hilarious how people always bring this up but have no issue with the even less intelligent “peoples kids” selling you the card at a the bid your putting in.... Shouldn’t all the market gurus be getting on those guys? Taking offers instead of listing a sell order at -1 of the current price seems even more foolish but I haven’t seen that complaint in 5 years.

They are selling it at my bid because they want the stubs, "now now". If i wanted it "now now" i would buy at their price. But it happens over there too. I am trying to get someone to buy my card for $4,000 and instead of someone going down to $3,999 to sell theirs first, they go to $3,000.... leaving $999 stubs on the table and forcing someone else to put the next lowest card at $2,999 to get their own bought first.

Both ways are hilarious. One way, people are spending more stubs than they need to, and another way they are leaving stubs on the table. #economics

There has to be dumb people for others to profit. Just remember all the sell now orders being completed by people that are actually just pressing sell now. I have only done this like once by mistake, and was furious.

SDS

Some people have stubs to burn and don't want to worry about being outbid so they throw up a high buy order so they don't have to keep checking back.

SDS

the market is moving fast right now with the announcement of the collection so going up by 1 stub at a time if you dont get it right away you'll probably be a few orders and a few hundred stubs behind in a few minutes

Not a question of smarts or lack of them, it's patience and ppls lack of it.

Sort of, but if your bid of $4,001 puts you in the front row, why would you instead put $5,000? I don't know, doesn't matter because I can't change everyone's ways, but in my opinion the matter is more of an intelligence/lack of saving stubs issue.

SDS

That’s true in theory but hear me out. The overbids and underbids are extremely close to “now now” and that’s what people who do this like myself are trying to achieve. I over bid quite often but not at a foolish extreme, I just don’t consider 4000 - 4300/4500 a foolish extreme. Buying him for 5200 would be, as would selling him for 4001 when I can instantly get 4800. People still do both when they could essentially achieve “sell now” or “buy now” at a much better rate in almost the exact same time. At the end of it all I take a 400 stubs loss that I’ve earned back during a showdown that I get to play while not bidding so I make that choice more often than not.

If you want to talk comedy, the guys bidding 71,002 on a downgraded 92 Dwight Evans when there’s a 99 for 22,500 take the crown, Honus collection or not I can smell the Mountain Dew from here.

I understand what you are saying and I think you are right in your points on the matter.

Also, just looked up that Evans card and I am super sad that I do not have the 92 to sell to someone for potentially 100k stubs

I am that guy with highest bid on Dwight Evans. I have every card in game, why not get him? I make 75,000-100,000stubs flipping each day. What's another 71,002.
