How about a StarJets Eastern 757-200 for $1,989? Or a Gemini 200 Eastern 727-200 for $1,498? And a Malaysia 772 for almost $10,000. Why even bother listing them and paying the fees? No one is going to pay those prices.

They probably don't want to sell the products, with such over capitalized amounts they are just staring at a wall and waiting for a response imo rofl
It seems they reinvented retardism haha...aaa such sadness, lmao

The seller is offering free shipping with those prices. Very generous of them!

This may be my favourite: "Your out of your mind" listing to date. Thanks to the thread starter. This was by far me best giggle of the day.

Don't forget about the FedEx 727.

It's funny i have that same JC Wings Malaysia 777-200 also but now i know never to sell mine because perhaps in another 10 years it will probably be double the price this seller is asking for..

Ebay: The gift that keeps on giving. At least as far as comical efforts to fleece buyers - for products in a niche market where most purchasers are too knowledgeable to fall for 1000% markups on items......

Geez, nearly everything that seller has up is ridiculously priced. I especially love the Michael Jordan card for $50K. Must be some good drugs there in Huntington, New York. Lol

I'm glad to see one of the models I'm after, JFox Saul Bass United B744, is finally up for sale for the cool purchase price of $499. At least I can send an offer, although I'll probably insult the hell outta him or her when if I do.

I would say that the asking price is insulting. Throw him a low ball offer. If he says no, offer an even less amount and say that the next offer will be even less.

I would just message him to see what the lowest he is willing to accept and let him know what you are willing to pay.
