critique my ebay ad please?


Hi - I have sold a few figures through here - but no one bit on my mister miracel so I took it to ebay. I am not used to selling on ebay so I was hoping since I juts listed it someone could let me know if I should change anything on my listing.

Also - what should I be hoping to get here... I think I'd be sad if he went for less than $130 - is that reasonable to expect?

It looks good to me. I'd say 130 would be the higher end but not out of the realm of possibility. Good luck with the sale!

Looks great... lots of description and lots of pics. The sold-range seems to be around $80 to $120. Ebay is a fickle beast... one week your item might sell at $50, the same item a week later for $100.
Good luck, and hope for a MIRACLE (sorry, couldn't resist)

People tend to pay a premium for figures in exceptional condition, which I believe yours is. So I wouldn't be surprised if you meet/pass your goal. Good luck!

I think the photos could be improved. They're very dark (use a brighter background) and out of focus (never good if you are emphasizing condition) so you're not showing off the condition as well. You also didn't allow for close-up examination of your photos, which is a key option for high-grade material on E-Bay.

I'm always reluctant to buy ungraded carded figures and have to really be convinced by the photos that the card/bubble/figure are all in high-grade condition. Honestly yours is the type of listing that has "red flags", meaning out of focus photos and lack of close-up option may be being used to cover up for condition issues, so I tend to be even more reluctant.

Looking at yours, I'd have to pass based on your current photos because of the ding in the corner and what looks like bending/creasing in the top left of the card.

As it is, I think you will get between $180 and $220 for it. But if the card/bubble/figure were truly mint ([sign in to see URL], I believed would grade to AFA 85), I'd spend $500, no problem.

when I listed I didn't see a specific option for the zoom in option - I thought it was automatic. I agree it's a nice feature but when Iw ent into "revise" mode I still cannot see how to add that. any thoughtS?

I think you need to check the "Gallery Plus" feature. I think it's fee, but I'm not sure if you can add the feature after the auction has been listed and bids have been taken.
