JMS took a beating on that one.

As we all have on the bay at one time or another.
I wouldn't look at that as any type of bench mark.
But I would say that some Car Paints that have popped up lately have had asking prices that neared the stratosphere.
Just plan over priced, and when you over price something and get somewhat close to that over blown asking price...
You as the buyer/sucker of said stratospheric pricing could get a serious beat down when it's time to go to auction or sell.
And one other thing that was not mention or maybe not noticed was...
There where 3 of the exact same deck for sale on the bay at the same time.
One of the DB stripped version which I believe is also JMS's.
Never good to have 2 up at the same time.
All that does is drive the price down, way down.
Just my .02 for what ever that matters.

I think that the often stated "buy it because you like it" rings true for me. I know that I have gotten every dollar's worth of apprecitation out of my considerable BDS collection. Well, maybe not my hand drawns. I better go take another look at those. [biggrin]

A pink SKULL is wrong, I never liked that graphic because of it. The Flipper gets a beat down....too bad.

Giants, agree with most of that, but really not posting this up to restart that whole theme again.  Was just disappointed to see a deck sold by Wes for $300 2.5 years ago sell for just over $100.  No, most here are not buying for profit or investment (or shouldn't be), but that seemed a larger drop than most.  And, as TB pointed out, kind of karma with this particular seller.

I think it's fucking hilarious that you all watch ebay and weep and moan when you could stop most of that shit from happening simply by allowing auction style here and at the fb group...it's not fucking rocket science, it's easy, but you all are a bunch of Dinosaurs living in the past. lol...too funny! Plus...Tony B was right...one of the worst looking graphic color choices ever made by Wes. Looks like it was rushed with no concerns of the final product.

Thanks for your opinion and insight.  Tony didn't like the pink skull - for him that doesn't work.  You want to criticize the entire finished product?  Glad Wes depends on you for guidance.  WTF.  Don't like it?  Simply don't buy it, but you don't have to insult the man for whom this site is about.  [frown] [rolleyes]

And you don't get your way here or FB, bitch about it in your own thread, then delete it because you didn't like the lack of support for your idea, and then you post it up again here?  Awesome.  Repeating your opinion over and over doesn't make it any more true.  Everyone here knows how to search for things on eBay...and how to place a bid.  How would making this or FB, both groups with a significantly smaller audience than eBay, solve this "problem" by accepting bids?  Has nothing to do with being dinosaurs or being easy.  No one other than you wants to make this or FB a version of eBay.  What is so hard to understand about that?  Let it go man.  Let it go... 

Is this you at the drive thru?

You're such a fucking dweeb Mike...you and Tony are so alike in your superiority in knowing just what everybody else is thinking and means when they say something...doesn't a poor color choice effect the end product? Yep I think it does. I didn't insult Wes...just called it like I saw it.

And I brought it up again here just to get under you and Tony's skin...you are both sooooo easy to trigger!

Oh...and I love your advise on let it go man...let it go...

Can't even begin to tell ya how many times I've thought that to myself over the years when you stick your nose into EVERYTHING and then go on and on and on about it...lol....probably an honest 100 times! lol...you can't make this shit up!!! 

PS...I'm having a blast over on the FB group selling gear to everyone! 😉
