no such thing as a stupid question...

no such thing as a stupid question...
I have an item up for sale on the bay as a three day auction, starting price of $50 with a buy it now of $75. It's a second year quarterback and it may or may not be set at a good price, it's one of those items that's very hard to get a gauge on.

A buyer messages me and asks, "can you turn this into a one day auction with a starting price of $20?" I'm thinking that this is a tough item to figure out, the more exposure it gets the more interest it may generate. But why in the heck would I handicap myself and turn it into a one day auction with a starting price at less than half of what it's currently at?!

Then it dawned on me...one of my favorite sayings..."there are no such things as a stupid question...just stupid people."

I'm all for people putting in offers, but to ask me to change it to a one day auction with such a low starting price? Am I being too touchy?

Funny, this morning I sent an offer asking someone to pull an auction for a second year quarterback. I think I offered more than he is going to get though. I just don't want deal with bidding and I need it for the collection.

RE: no such thing as a stupid question...
Are you the one that offered $20 on a 2012 Triple Threads White Whale #1/1 with a starting price of $50? Who then asked if I would sell it at $50 for a Christmas gift, to which I dropped my auction to $50 buy it now, then who proceeded to lower your offer to $40? Then when I rejected the lowering of the offer, you didn't go through with the transaction?

ha definitely not. I made a fair offer on a card that was still at $0.99 after 24 hours.
