Ebay and The Price of MVS carts

I’ve ben following a lot of acutions on eBay recently trying to track the prices of some carts so I dont over pay for them (or find out where I can get them cheaper in the year).  It’s been more surprising just how much of a difference the “Full Kits” go for. 3-5 times the cart price is the norm!  It’s also impressive how many sellers try to rip people off on ebay.  It’s just not worth looking at Buy It Now auctions these days at, for some unknown reason, some sellers think basic carts with no serial numbers like Baseball Starts Pro are worth up to £20!!! WTF? NO! just no… under a tenner.

As with all markets other seem to have realisede this and are starting the auctions lower but charging £6-8 for delivery within the UK.  Even boxed this is nuts as it’s no more than £4.50 even via royal mail!  £8? You’re having a laugh….

Still if anything is to be learnt it that’s you can grab a bargain.  I saw a Metal Slug X cart go for £1 the other day as it had £10 postage on it (so no one bid). that would have been £40+ if the postage wasn’t extortionate.

Never mind…. I’ll keep looking I guess..
