In regards to your second question, what I would normally do is place some tissue (folded) or a piece of styrofoam popcorn inside the larger case to prevent movement.

I've never heard of it, I have a problem with impulse buying, when I see a card I want for PC I just buy it, but I've been spending way to much and so I have been trying to be a bit more conservative with my spending. I could pay the $50 for it..... but I've never actually seen any type box topper card in person, is it bigger than a normal card and do they make cases for them? I was out of the hobby from early 2000's until February of this year, so a lot of products are completely unfamiliar to me particularly Panini products. I know that MOST Bill Waltons I can get for half of book value or less so when this guy was asking $119 BIN/BO and then counteroffered my $21 with a $50.... I just wanted to see if there is any special demand for these cards that would make it worth paying extra for?

Topps used to do this a lot with there products. The odds should be either 1 per box or 1 per case. They do make top loaders for 5x7 cards, so you should be alright with that. If you do decide to get it, find out how the seller is going to ship it to you. Those larger cards can easily get damaged in shipping. He should send it in at least a top loader sandwiched between cardboard.

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.
