While the Prestige goes unsold, THIS is selling?!

Post by The Chad on Wed Feb 19, 2014 1:36 pm

Ummm... wouldn't have expected this.  There's a Prestige 250 on the Bay for around the same price.  Interesting what collectors will shell out for. 

Check this out!

Thou clicketh here.

Super rare?  Sure is.  But I wouldn't go that high.  An X390 or X350, yeah.  Obviously not everyone thinks that way.  The only real distinguishing factor here is the color.  Since other color Gen II's go for much less! 

Thoughts?

Yeah, it IS unusual - we've seen fewer of these for sale than the X350s, eh, and that's an attractive colour but.... that would appear to be a little over-priced.

my thoughts…
a collector? i don't think so.  Evil or Very Mad

the high bidder has 100% of recent bids with this seller…
the second high bidder has 100% of recent bids with this seller…
seems strange to me…

can you say, "shill bidder(s)?"

Shill!!!  Hate that. 

They do this all the time with things.  Drives up the market.  Or so they plan. 

I wonder if they drive it up like this then cancel the highest shill bid and accept the highest "real" bid.  I don't know how that works, but they're con men.

That is just... utterly shameless. Looks like the last one to sell prior to this went for $155. 

I must admit to being quite a fan of the Genesis on a looks basis, but for some reason I have yet to find one that really hit the spot. Not a keeper in the bunch. It's the neck I haven't warmed up to...
