Caution Reminder: ALWAYS Read the Auction Listings!!
This has been said before, but I screwed myself with this one:
Normally, these figures MIB go for $150 to $200. Thought I would pick up a good deal and turn around and sell it for a nice profit.
Not to be - for some reason, Diana Ross dolls are in a major depression recently, going for next to nothing. And then the figure arrives.
The box is a C-2 at best. I got mad and went back to the auction. The picture looks great, but read the listing.
Technically, the seller did nothing wrong. He said the picture was of another figure and that the box was trash. I just looked at the picture, looked at the price and went without reading.
I got greedy and didn't read the fine print. I can't get mad at the seller, and I did get a nice figure (not that I am in the market for her) at a reasonable price for the toy.
Just another good example of - ALWAYS READ THE LISTING INSTRUCTIONS!!!
