That ship is not a Super Rare, nor is it from Spanish Main OR Savage Shores. I also don't think it's a great price, but perhaps I got lucky with mine....

This seller has some interesting lots up, including a punched lot with four of the 10 masters.

What the heck? This lot sold for USD$182 plus shipping, but my listings for buy it now at a price per pack way lower than that went untouched for 2 months Confused

I’m assuming you’re referencing that lot of SCS packs? Considering that’s the only thing that has sold in that price range recently...
If so, they sold high because they were well presented, had an excellent starting price, and were an auction.
Auctions get more interest, photos of the actual item help build buyer-confidence and make your item look like something that is not from a gaming store/retail outlet trying to get the going-rate for their item.
1) Auctions Garner more interest.
2) Stock photos are the cancer of internet sales.
3) Shorter auctions give a sense of urgency, which increases the likelihood of someone buying them. I.E. they think they won’t be able to get it later/will miss out, so they bid to get it now. As opposed to a BiN item that is running for 30 Days.
4) Good desc. and title-writing helps.

I think it's a clear example of the bias towards Canadian shipping and all that.

Rough.

I'm more impressed that the Star of Siam sold for $23 by itself! Surprised

Er, yeah - that was me. I believe that was the last SR on my checklist. Apologies if anyone else from here was bidding on it.

I *might* have been a little frustrated after I picked up a lot that contained the Rev SRs...and Star of Siam was already punched and the ship wasn't included.

Deal of the century! Fake Raptor Maws for only $30! Laughing https://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Pirates-CSG-wizkids-226-Raptor-Maw-READ-DESCRIPTION/232673942103?hash=item362c729a57:g:7M4AAOSwhj9ajfyR]link


That's interesting. I actually think it's a solid idea for saving money. I'd be willing to play against someone with a fake one since they're so rare and expensive, and since I play with ships out of my physical collection (and customs) on VASSAL a lot.

However, if the "fake" is priced near what the real one goes for, what's the point? Laughing I understand they might have high production costs or something, but I wouldn't want to pay more than $5 if I'm not getting the real thing.

Thing is, you can't even punch them or anything. Seller said it's for filling that empty spot in your collection. Completely worthless for play, which is the only real use a fake card has.

From the listing, "they are made using paper scans of the original and then gluing the prints onto poster board." $30 for that is ludicrous.
