Not a buyback. Why would it be?
Hook didn't boot and had no display. LoTR had over 30k plays on it. TX Sector and Class of 1812 had CPU issues and wouldn't play. And so on.
Great day to be a seller at this auction.
Quoted from MrBally:
I'm thinking maybe the seller didn't want it to go for a low price so he just bid it up to $4700.00 and just had to pay the buyback fee (maybe $100.00) plus the per item "listing" fee.
Nah. First you would need 2 bidders and only a fool of a seller would pass up that crazy money and second there are very few buybacks lately at these auctions as prices have been high for condition. Isn't like it was years ago.
Hooked - it wasn't really an online bidder, the auctioneer was messing around. It was just bidding on behalf of someone who wasn't there in person (they usually are) and they may be in for a surprise when they see what they bought.
Cool invoice Buddy. Isn't it amazing the value after all these years. Even considering inflation.
