This guy contacted me via Craigslist telling me he has a bunch of stuff from his childhood and wants to find out "how he could go about selling them". I told him if he was interested in selling, I'd be interested in seeing them and requested some pictures.
First of all, I try not to get excited when people contact me anymore. Aside from the fact there are a lot of time wasters on Craigslist, I have reason to believe another local toy dealer is jerking me around under different identities just to get under my skin and waste my time. Could be paranoia, but maybe I am right.
If he is serious, I don't like the way he is wording things. Like "looking to see what I can sell them for". Do you WANT to sell them or are you just wasting my time by having me give a free appraisal?
Anyway, here is the loot:
KODAK Gallery | Photo Merchandise
When I see stuff like this, I feel it's just a joke being played on me (he said he has more). But if he is real, I'd really like to get, but he seems like he's going to want the utmost top dollar number.
What should I offer him and how should I play this? Right now, I am low on cash and really shouldn't be buying a lot like this. I know not all of this is high end, but a few of those Thundercats pieces are pretty up there.
