I just looked up one of the books I bought at the consignment shop yesterday to see what I should list it for online. I see books through half.com and there is only one listed there. For $3,272.97! I paid $1 for mine!

Things like this crack me up. I used to work as an appraiser for an antiquarian and rare book dealer, so I know my books. This book is NOT worth that. It's worth more than $1 yes, but not even anywhere close to the listed price.

It does help with my listing though. When someone prices a book ridiculously high like that, I can then list mine for a reasonable cost of it's value (like $20) and anyone who wants it will see the discrepancy and think "Wow, what a deal!"

$3,272.97 lmao Smile

    I have seen items listed on eBay for ridiculous amounts and wonder if the seller has a motive for listing such a price when no one seems to bid.

    I've *heard* that items that are listed for such amounts *may* be someone trying to launder money. Who knows though .. that theory seems about as ridiculous as the prices...
