    scary enough I know where 2 more are... and he only wanted $250 a piece for them. Maybe I should tell him to call burbank, lol. They truly are the holder of the store with many over priced pieces of cardboard.

    This is why you should never have to question Burbank's prices...because SOMEONE will pay it....crazy.

    Burbank cards = Genius

    guy selling for $250 = No Genius


    LOL, it's not overcharging if he is selling them... I think it would be overpaying for people to be buying from him!!

    because they somehow stay in business by selling at full book and HIGH above...but, if you need something bad enough, that's about the last hope you have if you can't find it elsewhere.

    They are pretty arrogant to...stories of them only getting the vintage out for sale on certain days...lol...stuff like that....they are just infamous in the hobby for the way they do business.

    Burbank is known for having some very nice, sometimes hard to get cards. However, their prices tend to be obscene. They also aren't very good in terms of customer service, especially responding to inquiries about their cards. But, as this case illustrates, if people are willing to pay these guys will continue their business practices.

    Indeed they have some nice cards. However im never paying $2500 for a cal ripken jr auto. I have no problem with someone trying to make a buck but the way they've treated people I still cant believe there in business.

    Burbank is licensed dealer who sells on S.F. giants website on mlb.com...

    http://giants.auction.mlb.com/

    he probably has to have high price to pay for that advertising...

    Burbank has a ton of the 2002 Studio cards I need, but to say they are overpriced is an understatement. These cards aren't so rare that someone would overpay for them. They could sell them for 2/3 of the price they have them listed for and still make a nice profit - because I would buy them.

    I wish Ebay had an option to not show cards listed by a seller, I would use that feature on them.

    That's exactly it. They hold out for that rare buyer for whom their cards would be a last resort. To be fair, all it takes is that one buyer to make this business model work.

    The signature is nearly perfect, it's a tough buyback auto #/6, and Big Mac is now back on the road to hobby love since he's come clean this week. $800 dlvd for a card like that isn't surprising to me.

    Ditto to what Rob said. $800 doesn't seem too unreasonable for that card to me. It wouldn't have got that much if he was in A's uni though. Seems to me like Burbank is just striking while the iron is hot and I don't blame them.
