Sounds about right. Chances are the guys who pay big coin collections are sending their stuff to the CS for modifications. So it'd be more of a collectors show piece than a shop tool. What ballpark we talkin?

There are rules for newbies selling stuff on TCC. Your best bet is actually eBay. The last few sold between 2-3k... The last one close to 3. Extremely limited market, eBay gets way more eyes...

I agree with Ebay although you must know what you're doing there to avoid being scammed. I've sold a pretty decent amount of stuff on Ebay the last few years and it's a great place if you know what you're doing.

Currently Ebay seems to be swinging back to protecting Sellers more. In recent years, they went overboard with Buyer's protection and of course, scammers loved it. They'd claim Item Not Received, Significantly Not As Described, etc.....all with the hope that either Ebay or the Seller just rolls over and gives them a 100% refund or a partial refund.

1. First and foremost: if you sell on Ebay, you do accept Returns. Repeat that..........you do accept Returns. If you select that you don't, you're telling Ebay and Buyers if the item isn't what the Buyer expected, you don't want it back. Ebay will refund the Buyer their money (usually from your Paypal account) and not make them return it. ALWAYS select, Returns accepted. Scammers will move onto the next victim.

2. On items over $250.00 you must use Signature confirmation. Do not let the Buyer talk you out of using Signature Confirmation or you'll lose your Seller protection with Paypal.

3. Only ship the item(s) to the Buyer's Paypal address. Sending it to any other address will void your Seller's protection. If they give you a story about moving, not being there to receive it, etc......don't believe them. Tell them you must ship it to the Paypal address listed. They can always add one to it.

3. With an item so valuable, I would insure it heavily. If the Buyer claims that it was damaged in transit, tell them to Return it and once received and verified that it's the same item, you'll refund them.

4. Set your Seller's filters properly. Under Account tab, go to Site Preferences and down to Buyer requirements. I block these:

a. Don't have a PayPal account - You don't want to run the risk of getting a bogus Cashiers check or Money order.
b. Have received 2 Unpaid Item strike(s) within 12 Month(s) - These are sport bidders & run an item up then don't pay. 2 weeks wasted.
c. Have a primary shipping address in a location I don't ship to. - Sell to Continental U.S. Bidders only. No International including APOs.
d. Have 4 Policy Violation report(s) within 6 Month(s) - Self explanatory.

e. Have a feedback score of -1 or lower - Self explanatory.

Good luck!

Some of it was learned through Ebay's forums and most through getting scammed a few times.

You're welcome.

A couple more pointers on Ebay Selling guys:

5. Always use Ebay messaging to communicate as that is the only correspondence that is considered official to Ebay. In the event of a dispute, they will review those messages. Don't get nasty or make threats in them either.

6. On your auction style sales: Run each and every bidder through Toolhaus.org           Enter their ID into the search field and click left by. It will show you all the negatives/neutrals that Buyer left over the years. Here's an example of a PITA (pain in the ass) Buyer who will bitch if their ice cream is cold.

http://toolhaus.org/cgi-bin/negs?User=hautetut&Dirn;=Left+by

7. Also look at their feedback left for others within Ebay. Click on their feedback number and then 'Feedback left for others'. Sometimes a Buyer will always leave backhanded positives (called 'False positives') with comments like 'Great Seller although shipping was high'  or  'Not great quality but the price was okay'. Those ones are the ones who'll leave you a 1 or 2 on your Seller rating stars and if you fall below a certain level, you'll lose selling priviledges. If you don't have a lot of sales, just a couple aholes can get you banned from Selling.

8. If you do find anyone that you'd rather not bid on your item, add them to your BBL (Blocked Bidder List) http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/manage_bidders_ov.html#block . Simply copy their ID, open the link to 'Block bidders', paste their ID in there and save it. If you add more than 1, put a comma then a space in between. I have hundreds on my BBL. Some were obvious, some just smelled fishy. Why take a chance on getting scammed..........

9. If they've already bid on your item, add them to your BBL FIRST then click on the Cancel bids link page. If they send you a message about why you cancelled their bids, just ignore it. Nothing (I repeat NOTHING) you write them will help them get over you telling them you don't want their business.

Good luck!

Thank You!   It is up on Ebay.     I followed your feedback on the bidders.  Not sure what to do now.   12 hours posted at  3500 or best offer 3 offers already. I may be too low on the starting point.

Not a bad problem to have!      Thank you again.    This is a great site and there are great people

You can always counter offer them as well but of course only after you've checked their feedback left for others.

How many days did you make the auction for? I usually do 10 days and start it on Thursday about 5 Pacific time. That makes it end the next Sunday evening with East Coast still up and able to bid.

I made it 10 days.  My Buy it nows I start anytime.  My auctions I start at  6 pm for the same reason you stated.    I sold a lot of things on Ebay, but I learned more from you in the 8 years I been on there. I am also glad Ebay is getting seller sensitive but they have a long way to go in the area.

Again thank you for all your input is was very helpful.

Serious buyers know the actual value... so $3500 was a good BINOBO strategy. Any higher and you seem like you don't know... I'd take the first 3k offer and be excited. The fact that is says 2nd Swing on it detracts from the value since there is no mystery or mystique about origin etc.

I think it's a generic setting that Ebay uses for the Seller's protection. If they have more than 1 item of that kind, they don't want the subsequent Buyers knowing what the others paid.

I've had multiple items that I've sold under Best Offers; sometimes I get more out of the second Best offers than the first.

    • Played yesterday at SGCC. 36-40-76 -2 birdies and 2 doubles (ugh), one double was a 3-putt
    • I am going to try the TP version of my old club.  It has a 390CC head.  It was only 30 bucks so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if it helps a little on the forgiveness.  I guess the game is just passing me by...I can't see myself using those gigantic drivers.  The thing I noticed is that with the smaller head, that I am more focused on hitting the sweet spot.  With the giant club it just seems like you hit it anywhere on the face.  Am I correct in thinking that a "sweet spot" is not any larger on the bigger heads?  Is it just that on off center hits there is better chance of hitting it straight?  
    • I'll keep this on the short side because some random person's Member Swing thread isn't really the place for this kind of discussion… By most I'll clarify: the vast, vast majority. I'm not talking about 53% here. That doesn't mean you were doing it right or most efficiently. You may very well have been capable of making the change - and making it more quickly - with a ball if you'd done it differently. Sounds slow. Not for everyone, but for a good chunk of people. That's not what I advocate in the above linked post, either. Generally speaking, here's what I see: You tell people to fix the move without a golf ball. They work and work and film and record, and eventually, they've got a great practice swing. You say "great, now do that with a ball" and they almost immediately and completely revert to their old swing. Simply put, what I recommend to people is: A rehearsal swing or two. Often these too are shorter, slower, simpler swings. A shorter, slower, simpler swing focusing just on the "piece" while hitting a ball. As you become proficient, the swing gets less short, less slow, and closer to the full swing. Practice at the edge of your ability, but do it with a ball. The approach there blends no-ball practice (the first bullet) but immediately ties it to a motion you make with a golf ball. If you're shanking, topping, etc. the ball too much, you're not doing it slowly, "shortly," or simply enough.
    • Shot a 41 in my match play League.  Opponent was giving me 3 strokes.  I won the match 5 to 4. 5 pars 3 bogeys 1 double Good:  Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot.  Hit some very good approach shots.  I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet.  Alas, i made none. Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.    
    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball. Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
