jonebone 1,252 Member · Posted October 24, 2019 Share Posted October 24, 2019 So this is nothing new to the hobby, there have always been people buying multiples of items. Either due to thinking the item is currently undervalued, due to them just loving a franchise (1000 copies of Dragon Warrior anyone?) or even as just an experiment (Rampart on GB that got publicized). But lately, with all of the new comic blood pouring in, I've noticed they are doing the same too. Apparently #multiplecomicmonday is a thing, and they hype up Mario 3 to be their Hulk 181 which is apparently a high demand but high supply yet still valuable item. Have you all noticed this or what's your thoughts? I understand variant collecting (multiples of a same game, different versions) and also understand people who might own an extra (one CIB / one Sealed) or maybe 2 (2-3 sealed copies of a real favorite) but anything beyond that and I just can't relate. I'd rather free up that money and buy other items I don't already own. But yes, I have some buyers who just want anything of XXXX title no matter how many they already own. I'll happily sell it to them when they pay well but it's definitely manipulating the market on high end stuff with only few copies in supply.
