This short guide is to try and prevent people from getting ripped off when buying Ultra rares and God cards etc on ebay. The main thing to look out for is an exceptionally low price for what seems like brilliant cards. if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is. at the moment the going price for singular god cards are around £10 each roughly. the majority of times when people feel they are getting ripped off it is because of the wording of particular auctions. For example 3 God cards are shown in the picture however the wording of the auction may be "this auction is for 3 random Ultra rare cards from any booster series, those shown in the pictures are just an example of what you could win." The likelyhood of you getting the cards you want or that are in the picture are extremely slim and as so, caution is advised. It may simply be a dirty ploy by the seller to lure younger children into bidding on these auctions as the wording is often difficult to understand. Legally i believe you have to be over 18 to buy and sell on ebay, however realistically this isnt the case, i know of many people who use ebay, some as young as 10. so for younger people it is advised that someone over 18 supervises bidding and is able to correctly interpret the auction to determine exactly what is being offered for sale. Lastly the results that occur for people who do not read or understand the terms of the auction are often dire with many unhappy people and that often results in needless negative feedback between both parties. so REMEMBER
- If it looks to good to be true it probably is
- look for the word RANDOM in descriptions and avoid if this is not what your looking for
- Try to keep younger children from bidding without consent
- When consent is given make sure you understand what is being offered for sale
