You have my attention too. I noticed a quick shot of cartridge that looked like C-64 type. Got any Final Cartridge III's hiding in there?
I would also be interested in a GVP A500 II hard drive for my old A1000. I don't car if there's any drive in it, or RAM (I can supply that).


Those Final Cartridge IIIs are forever on eBay most of the time they go for around the 20 quid mark including postage... :)

Final Cartridge III C64


Remember I am in North America, so I get a different flavor of eBay. I would pay the UK price without flinching, but when you add in the shipping they usually want - it's just too much.
I too, have had trouble with Amibay. I couldn't log in, then someone helped me (greatly appreciated) from the site - but now it no longer works. Oh well....

I'm glade you mentioned that.  The majority of Amigas are 1000's.  I did talk to Raymond on saturday about overseas dealings.  He said if we get cash upfront for item and shipping that we would have to work these deals "NOT" on ebay.  He had some problems with this in the past and dosn't want to have a reaccurance.  If your still interested let me know asap as we are starting an Off Ebay request sheet for people that are looking to get things overseas.  If you see something you want on ebay let us know and we might have more.

thanks

Any chance you would be able to post a list of your cataloged items here for us to look at before the items went to the eBay reseller, so we could make offers on them directly to Raymond and save him the trouble and extra expense of using the eBay re-seller?

Walkins are welcome still send a PM and we can work out a time. It is a warehouse and we all have other jobs/families to deal with as well so Its by appointment only.  Saturdays works best.

Not all his pricing is ridiculous.  Some is like I stated before I don't have control over it.  If your not interested in an item because of its price wait and see if it drops.  Thats all I really can suggest.  As for the commision I don't have any of that information but you can always request that from the seller on ebay.

I do know the books and sofware isn't something hes looking to make alot of money one except for a FEW Items that are very rare from what I understand.  Books are going to be sold fairly cheap and I do know he wishs to keep 1 copy of each  one for his own collection.  He calls those shop copies.  And from what I'm aware of there not shown in the video.

If I lived closer, I would definitely take the time to make an appointment to walk through that warehouse and dig for treasure.  If anyone else lives close enough to do so, please contact me so I can give you a list of what to look for, for me.  I am mostly interested in programming books and software.

If your overseas and want an item I can see about avoiding ebay.  There is so much stuff to go through I just catalog it and then drop it off right away so I would n't be able to list it sooner than the ebay seller.  I will try to find things people are looking for and avoid ebay if there overseas.

sorry we don't have a better approach to the overseas thing.  I was barely able to talk him in to the idea.  It was that I pointed out he has a few systems that are made for overseas power that made him change his mind.

I will talk with him more on saturday when I see him and see if we can hash out a more sound plan but I have to go with things as they are for now as I don't have control over any decisions Raymond wants.

$50 C64's and 1541's?

Last 1541 he sold went for $10 and that's exactly what they're worth. WTF is going on here? Guy doesn't seem to me like he really wants to sell much of anything. Have him hold on to this stuff for another 40 years. By then, *maybe*, just maybe some of this stuff will be worth as much. Probably not though.  :lol:

Broken C64's for more than working runs usually go for? My God man... lol

$200 A500?

The price on that A3000 is respectable however. $250 seems pretty fair for an awesome boxed example, albeit really high for a starting price. Last A4000 sold that had its capacitors fixed went for $250 here.

G.L.L.B.!   (good luck little buddy!)

When things don't sell then maybe I can convince him to lower I did talk to him on the phone about the A500 and he let me pick on up with out the extra Add ons and well sell that one cheaper.  Should be listed shortly.

I dont know where you get your pricing  from but you are off on most of it imho. With rare hardware like amiga it can go sky high. Depends what people are willing to play and what it is, not some guidline set by a couple of people on a forum.

Typical Magnetic comment always trying to drive the price up we all know you love buying low and selling high. Amiga are not that rare unless you have some super hard to find hardware.

When it come to prices i would not listen to what magnetic says that one of the reason he got barred from amibay... and don't say their nazi and suck we all know if you could you be be there in a heart beat getting cheap hardware and flogging it off at double, triple the money.
