    drex how much did you pay for yours would anybody be getting ripped by trying to get it for 199 or is that a better price. im gonna assume (until proven otherwise) that we would be getting ripped off since its been on there for almost a day and not one bid. not only that the guy only has 5 feedback pretty poor if you ask me

    I paid $250 shipped for mine...and I've seen them go between $200-250 so the price is not a problem. (it would have eventually reached that price anyway).

    The guy did look a little shady, but I figured I would post it anyway. At the very least, you have the paypal protection, which is usually favorable to buyers over sellers. Not sure if I would take the risk.

    I'm not sure how "much" exactly I paid for mine... I bought the Starfox cart (which was a spare at the time and was sold at last year's CGE), DK cart and the Starfox jacket in one lot for about $500.

    Actually it was bad. I won the auction and paid him the money through paypal. Then he refunded the money and said he had received a higher offer. He may have some negative feedback coming his way.

    What do you guys think is a fair price for that cartridge?

    Yes, $250 is a fair price for this cart, if not the going rate by now.

    i would report his ass to ebay and include the email where he told you he was selling to someone else.

    Ok. Now I'm really pissed off. The guy who I won the item said he was accepting a local bid at a much higher amount than $250. Then I get the following email:

    "Hello! I've just received a mail from the seller of the Donkey Kong Competition Cart. You didn't buy it, right? Because he is offering me a new chance of buying it...thanks for your reply!"

    The great thing about this is that the seller is located in North Carolina and the guy who just emailed me is located in Europe. He is going down for this one.

    Did you win the auction, but the seller wants to sell it to someone else?

    WHAT !!!
    He can't do that to our forum peers!

    ALL FOR ONE ! ONE FOR ALL!

    I emailed him with an offer he wont be able to reject, i do know people in ebay.com.au .

    You should get an email from him very soon NES, i dont think he will not sell it to you.

    If he does not contact you soon NES, please let me know and i will take further action.

    Thank you

    Hey, it's me, parafang! I've reported him: I've offered 240 usd just to see what he replies. He told me that he will keep the cart:

    "Guess I'll be holding onto it then, last one sold (Ebay history) was 2001 and auction ended at $375.25 so........."

    I hope that the other bidders will do the same. BTW this is what he wrote in his first mail:

    "Well my buyer flaked out so I may be accepting offers
    at this point?......."

    I love how the DP'ers stick together. I've never had such a sucky experience using ebay. I was already planning where I'd display the cart in my house. The seller and I had several classic choice emails that we sent back and forth. He stated that he knew where I could find another copy but he wasn't gonna tell me and that it will be 3-4 years before I get another opportunity to buy a cartridge like that.

    All I wanted was the Donkey Kong Competiton cart..

    don't worry: the DKC shows up 4-5 times every year. It's not THAT rare
    And the one he was selling has a sticker on the back (ex rental) and the label is dirty (the seller sent me some bigger pics). Well, now he has been reported. And 375 usd, what he was looking for, is too much for a cart-only ex rental.

    Too bad reporting the seller doesnt help anything I had the same problem a while ago where the seller sold the item I won to another because he got a better offer.
    I reported this to Ebay and they said something like they couldnt follow it up or do anything.

    Sellers Response to my emails ;


    Feel free to browse the emails I sent to that bidder and confirm what steps I took, and the fact that I posted, on the listing that the item could sell locally at any time, obviously they are desperate to get ahold of this cart, and I would have been willing to help them obtain a copy had they not persisted in acting like a child & throwing petty threats at me.........


    Hes an idiot,
    Now he will face my ebay friends !!

    To be continue .....

    Needless to say that guy is lying through his teeth.

    "NOTICE: This item is also advertised locally for $499.00 USD if i receive that offer, I will remove it from bidding status prior to 12hr Ebay policy......please bid before 12hrs left!"

    He did not remove it before 12 hours were left and he never received a $499.00 offer. By what misjudgement of fate was he ever given possession of that game.
