Hi Paul,Im glad to hear you have one or I wouldn't stand a chance ha ha. I don't have Queen in my collection so it seems like a good one to have. I have a set price in my mind what I will pay. I might bid again or just wait till the last minute and bid if its in my range. Normally if I really wanted it not much would stop me but with spring here I have lots of "domestic" money to shell out (putting some techno block in back yard etc).
Patio pavers. Mojave Beige.
I really hate it when ebay sellers take unsolicited offers like that. I am not claiming to be whiter than white (after all, it is a dog eat dog world) but I have never, or hardly ever, made an offer on an auction only item. I just don't think it's fair on other punters - or even the seller in most cases.
I've had many potential buys snatched away by unsolicited offers but the one that hurt most was on three really early (unsigned) Who flyers and adverts (e.g. postcard flyer for a High Numbers gig in Harrow & Wealdstone and record shop banner for the "Can't Explain" single). I saw the items in person as the dealer was based in my home town.
The dealer had listed a comparatively common Marquee flyer on eBay to see how it would go and promised to tell me before listing the better material. Some bidder from London contacted him and asked if he had anything else. You can guess the rest...
The guy offered the dealer £300 for the three items and made a 200 mile round trip on the same day (if that isn't fishy what is) to pick them up. When I eventually found out I was p***** to say the very least, especially as I was a good customer/friend. The dealer also felt like a donkey when the relatively common Marquee flyer later went for over £300 by itself.
This happened well over 5 years ago so you can see how deep it sits.
happens all the time ,lets see if it ref flips on e bay then we can give the guy some aggro making an offer when theres no bids is one thing but cancelling bids and selling off e bay isnt allowed and you have to be a certain kind of arse to ask someone to do it
