If you are paying him directly through paypal and not using Ebay there is no way I would pay him more. He is actually making more money that way because Ebay takes 9% that he will be saving. All I will say is that since no one bid on the card you can assume it is at the high end of the value. So an increase from the seller is more unrealistic than his first asking price might have been. Hard to place a value on a /5 and I am not real familiar with his cards so I will let someone else comment on that.

Now the seller wants more to sell directly so that he doesn't have to pay the eBay fees, and he might even try for a PayPal gift payment so he doesn't have to pay the Paypal fees either. Sounds like the seller is getting greedy, now that he knows someone is interested. I think you should offer no more than $25 (including S&H). If the seller doesn't accept it then don't fret over it. They are most likely trying to get every penny they can from you since they know you're interested, and since the card is numbered out of 5 they know it is tough to find another one.

I collect Kyle Weaver (drafted in 2008, played a couple seasons and is now playing overseas) and I know I have overpaid for a couple of the cards I have in my PC. As long as you are only over paying by 5-10 dollars, which it seems you might be if you go with the original price, then I do not see that being a huge deal. If this is just a card you like and its not PC then I would possibly pass.
