If that’s the Playdium X-Men it had a ticket dispenser bolted to the right side- it may have holes in it, and it was terribly maintained.

My local Vietnamese place gives me 10% off with cash... they add a premium? Why, there is a service charge from the bank when they make the deposit? Usually it is for credit card purchases. Negative inflation?

I like it for 2.5

3k plus premium and taxes is damn near value (4K)
My cutoff would be 2.5
Still have to pick it up, deal with all the surprises.

I am out, my NiB is any day now.

Broken X-Men pin is at $5000 out the door price right now, with 10 days left. I don't think people realize there is 18% BP and then 13% tax on top of the winning bid /w BP. You might think you're getting a deal at $3700, but it adds up quick!

As luch wrote, it's pretty much anything you bid + 50%. Buyers beware, whatever you'll get will probably need some TLC.

On that topic, a winning bid also means you need to pick up whatever you purchased really fast after the auction has concluded. Does anyone know if such auctions ever happen in the Ottawa area?

Now skee ball looks kinda neat.
Room could be an issue.
Also
Many house of the deads.
Because there's quite a few skee ball on the auctioning block, for those you may actually get a good price. They're built to last, so chances are they work great. But, yeah, room and getting them in there would be a major issue in my case!

Yah it's a bit insane. I was interested in Wipeout, but it is in rough condition, so I need it to be a good dead. It's already at $3300 out the door with 10 days left. There was a pristine condition one that popped up a few weeks ago in Ottawa asking $3500. These auctions drive people to overpay. Use to be deals at these things, but it's a waste now.

why do you think they do these online , you will never see live in person auctions again , they make way more money this way . plus the pictures are always crappy , and with covid good luck getting in to see this stuff before hand
