Default Its Official: Ebay is over-saturated...

Yes its true. Ebay has too much crap now.

I can actually search for stuff I looked for about 5-6 years ago and actually find it...

Plus, like every toy i've saved from my childhood is completely worthless now...

Of course, that excludes the original JDM Super Veritech my uncle got for me from Japan which would still worth quite a bit, along with the TWO (count them TWO) Chewbacca shampoo bottles I had for years, all of which were destroyed ages ago...

It means while walking on water you came upon a shark, which made it angry, as it tried to eat you you lept over it in brucelee fashion.

This is to jump a shark, any other explanation is a lie. What that has to do with ebay I don't know.

It's kind of disheartening when you find something that you think is quite rare and search for going rates on ebay only to find 10-15 people selling that item at about 10% what you thought it was worth.

ebay proves that a lot of people have a lot of stuff that you DON'T have.

What amazes me is the 20,000 XBox 360's I counted the other day. Not one in the stores anywhere, and they haven't been there since launch. It seems that at least 10-15% of them have been put up on ebay for sale

Same thing happened with the "Magma" Exclusive Darth Vader figure from Target... They sold out in the first day, but at least 5,000 of the 50,000 were already on Ebay by the time I got home from work that day

it's because everything is a collectible these days. if you have something that you think is junk, there's a nitch that considers it a pot of gold.

i sold an antique enamel/cigarette case that i thought was maybe worth $100 or so, i got an e-mail no less than 4hrs after listing it willing to do $500. i'm sure i could have got more but $500 was worth it to me.

alas all of my transformers/he-man figures went up in a blaze of model glue and wd-40 torches.
