Print block

Postby treefrog » Sat Apr 30, 2011 12:41 pm

I am unsure on the item below whether the bidding, based on the feedback on the seller and buyers, is false, given it has reached £500 for what may be some kind of advertising print block for an old pinball type machine. Or am I missing something and these are highly collectible?

I thought it was appealing at 99p, but the offer of £90 :o in the Q & A amazed me and the fact that there are merely two bidders each with only 3 feedback apiece raised my doubts (along with the £500 current price). I could see it as £499.99... but £500? No way! I also see that in the Q & A someone says that on the Antique Road Show something along these lines was valued at over £1,000. I think it's novel, not highly collectible and definitely one to laugh at :HaHa:

Very coincidental that the 500 quid high bidder has only bid on one other item recently, a bouncy castle - and what do you know, the printing block seller deals in bouncy castles!!?

And don't get me started about the 15 pound postage charge he's asking for this piece of junk......... :roll:

I haven't sold anything on ebay for a long time, but am I right in thinking that if the seller, or one of his mates, has run this up to £500, it will end up costing them an ebay fee probably in excess of the item's value? I see that the Final Value Fee for an item sold for £0.01 or more is 10% of the final selling price (up to a maximum of £40). So if he shilled this and there's no sucker willing to pay £500+, it will cost him £40 plus any listing fee. :o

You can claim the fee back if the sale did not complete.
There are lots of printing blocks on ebay, one is selling a carousel block for £5 Buy-it-Now, not a pinball I know but...

We have a chance to buy 'another' slate print on ebay Item number: 300554298161.
Guess what, no picture of the item.
Both buyer & seller gave immediate 5* feedback to each other !PUZZLED! , so it will be interesting to see how the sale now gets cancelled to get the £50 seller fee refunded and if the picture of the new item is identical to the first! :o

If you look at the original listing, the new one is a relist, so confirms the likelihood this was cancelled or not completed, maybe one can get it for 99p this time

Interestingly, got this ebay message this morning "An item you were watching has been relisted. Don't miss out again - bid now. vintage slots slot machines SLATE PRINT?? penny arcade Current price: £0.99 " What a surprise! :lol:
