    I've been told they sell for 15mil each and have even been told 50mil each. Like I said, I'm not sure what they go for. I'm not looking to get rich off of them, and also not looking to get a insanely low amount for them. But... It will be great for resell!!

    This is NOW AN AUCTION:

    End date: March 18th, 2013 - 9PM Eastern (Monday)

    Current Bid: 100M Buns of Glory

    No Reserve or buyout


    Items are located on Atlantic and payment/pickup on Atlantic. ALL PM BIDS AND EDITED POST BIDS WILL BE VOIDED! The 10min Rule will be in effect. They will be sold as a bulk package.

    For being a jerk to MANY members of the community: TheMan2010, Lucky Luciano, King Sig. or any other form of his characters are not to bid. All attempts will be voided.

    Happy Bidding!

    You have definitely gotten over the old school days.. I still cringe when I dare look into a box ^_^ Nice find there! I'll offer 60m (i'm not sure what they are worth either so don't feel obligated to take my offer =P)

    Okay, with the many PM's I have gotten. I'm gonna change how this sale works. Originally it was ment to be an experiment. Many people are using this "sale method" and I wanted to use it to see what the pros and cons are. Some methods work better for most and sometimes it doesn't work well for some. Here are the methods I've seen:

    - Auction
    - Sell at given price
    - Take Offers
    - Trade for certain Items
    And now
    - Sell when it reaches the best offer

    I think i discovered the use of this method: If you state a timer on said items... then people will bid their max on the item an you can sell faster with a price that you would have gotten anyways from an auction.

    Example: Timerd Sell:

    Bid 1: 60
    Bid 2: 80
    Bid 3: ---
    Bid 4: Winner!

    Bid 4 has reached the price that I am comfortable with and can sell and move on. It only took 2 days for bid 4 to win and I got a good amount for it.

    Eample: Auction:

    1 week for auction (7 days)

    Day1: Bid 1 - 5M
    Day1: Bid 2 - 7M
    Day2: ---
    Day3: ---
    BUMP
    Day4: Bid 3 - 10M
    Day5: ---
    Day6: Bid 4 - 15M
    Day6: Bid 5 - 20M
    Day6: Bid 6 - 25M
    Day6: Bid 7 - 30M
    Day7: ---
    Day7 - 1 hour to go: Bid 8 , Bid 9, Bid 10
    WINNER


    I'm not sure if you guys wee what I am talking about.. but I could get the same amound of gold for Example 1 as I can in Example 2 and I don't have to wait the 7 days.

    THE CONS:

    I can undersell.... I have seen people sell many items for WAY LESS then they are worth because of this method. I've seen a 100M item sell for 15M... I've seen 300M items sell for 100M.. and so on and so forth. As I favor the auction style more, I am gonna change this sale. I have gained and required what all I need to make my decision on this method.

    The OP has been edited to the current sale form. Sorry for the confusion, but really didn't know how else to judge this method then to use it myself. Basically reffering to "Never Judge A Book By It's Cover" phrase. Current Bid is 80M by smoot. Auction ends Monday, the 18th. Good luck!

    well, since the format changed, and if i wanted to be a ****, i would retract my bid so Nabin could bid 65 and i could bid at last min :) but thats way too complicated and wont matter in the end anyway.

    TLDR
    I'm just wondering, are there 10 of these? I tried to skim over everything but didn't see how many exactly are in the lot.

    Is everything ok? I heard you had to postpone the Pac event the other night because of an emergency.
