Here is a great example of what I wrote about yesterday. Check out this Ebay item:
Eight of the Bolian illustrated Nancy Drew books... Price? A Buy It Now of 602.00!
I don't have any of these books in my collection, but I know they are a little more desirable among collectors. I have not seen them for less than 50.00 on Ebay, but this seems to be a rather steep price: 75.25 a book. All eight for 602.00.
And another picture besides spines facing out would have been nice. What do the fronts look like? At 602.00, I'd like to have a look before buying. The description says "Some are in better from very nice to good." Better what? Shape I presume. The seller offers to send more pictures upon request, but why not post up front? I have a hunch these copies are not worth 75.00 a book!
I, unfortunately do not have 602.00 laying around for an Ebay purchase.
They seem overpriced to me. Desirable? Yes. Obtainable? "Not I, said the blindman..."
