Gonna be interesting to see if the Authentics being sold on ebay by the member longlongago08 make the prices or even more which he paid for them from Topps:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2010-11-Topps-Hun ... 3a6677417a
Topps Price Paid = £50.00
Postage from Topps = £2.15
Postage Cost to send = £6.00
Ebay Final Value Fee = £9.18
Paypal Fee = £3.18
Final Ebay Price = £103.00 incl p&p
PROFIT = £32.49

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2010-11-Topps-Rec ... 3a667745bb
Topps Price Paid = £50.00
Postage from Topps = £2.15
Postage Cost to send = £6.00
Ebay Final Value Fee = £7.47
Paypal Fee = £2.61
Final Ebay Price = £83.00 incl p&p
PROFIT = £14.77

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2003-Topps-Gold-P ... 3a66774c49
Topps Price Paid = £60.00
Postage from Topps = £2.15
Postage Cost to send = £6.00
Ebay Final Value Fee = £7.47
Paypal Fee = £2.61
Final Ebay Price = £83.00 incl p&p
PROFIT = £4.77

Will all be able to see if profit can be made at this early stage of selling then as he is the first seller to risk high buying price to see demand from people who do not know the Topps Authentics site exists...

I hope he will make a profit but it would be tough considering the amount of fee charged by ebay and paypal.

I have no idea mate. I have been trying to work out who the bidders are based on their feedback scores but have had no luck. The prices just keep going up.

The Owen auto I can understand - it is a very rare card and people (myself included) have been looking for it for a long time.

The level of bidding on the new Authentics cards is strange though - I would have thought people would atleast do a quick google search on any new product before putting a bid of £70+ on it......

Fair play to the seller - he took a risk and it has paid off

Broke about level now , when considering all fees commission from both parties (eBay/Paypal).
Looks like he will make a nice little profit with time left (on the auction) and obviously lots of interest.

9% of the Final selling price, very similar % then for PayPal,
Also insertion prices would have been involved unless ran from a 99p auction start.
Also P&Pwill cost more than £1 and if signed for will be more like £7(if international) and considering the P&P Topps originally charged, this represents a huge margin lost
