Default Don't be this buyer

Don't be this buyer

On Saturday, I had a case of 1952 and 1953 Topps commons, mostly graded PSA 2 - 4 and these can be what I tend to sell, commons in the $15 - $25 range from those sets so I can help collectors built up their collections. There was a row marked "all cards $15" and there are probably close to 200 of them available in a locked case. Someone asked my young helper if he could start to shuffle through them so he comes over and opens it up for the customer and he ended up picking out five cards He asks my helper if he could do $70 on the $75 of cards I was holding, my helper wasn't authorized to make the decision. It took a few minutes but I go over to the buyer and he looks me up and down like the fashion police and obviously doesn't like my outfit.

I tell him "All of these are already competitively priced from eBay, no I can't give you those for $70", I mean you would have thought I killed a bag of kittens with the look he gave me. He never came back though he said he might. It's amazing how people don't want to spend a buck
I simply don't understand this mentality, instead of getting all the cards he wanted, from 1 seller and having them in hand he walked away over $5.


tl:dr If you don't like my prices, why are you looking at my cards in the first place?

Don't forget to complain about a "blind" drawing that you bought into too!
