On the subject, the last Walton sold for 32 plus shipping, so I'd counter in the 30-35 range and that should be fair to both parties.

Saying that something is "in demand"....is just a guy trying to make an excuse when he has no good answer to your question. I understand it is a PC card....but so would perhaps the two other Walton autos you could get for the $50 that this guy wants. Bear in mind that I say this knowing absolutely nothing about the Walton auto market. Personally? When it comes to dollars I am a shrewd negotiator. I would either counter at $22 or counter at $15. Doing this sends 2 messages. It says that you aren't comfortable coming too far off of your originaly offer. If this guy is unreasonable you will know by HIS counter. Countering at $15 would then make $21 look pretty good. I suppoer it depends on how badly you wants this box topper.

Someone may honestly not know how much something sells for. They can also try to gauge what a seller is willing to accept. They may be willing to buy 4 or 5 items from you, but closing a door on a potential buyer limits a person as a seller. I would never make an offer personal because it's all business.
As an example I was selling an item that I wanted $250 for. The buyer offered $75. I simply countered for $180. The buyer waited until someone else placed an offer before they accepted my counter. They paid within 2hrs. I was satisfied and they got what they wanted. I usually check the bid history and if a seller has a history of letting offers expire I am less likely to place an offer.

For example I was looking to get a sam jones celtics auto eventually I got one but ones I were watching were going for 40$ and up. I got one for a bit over bv but worth it since its #d/25 and pc so its mine now.
