I just saw a Sharp gf 777Z on ebay for $10000, are these guys crazy? 

I always see the ones they put up from the Russian federation for $3500, but $10000?!?!?! 

What the hell are they smoking? 

What ever it is I want some!  :yes:

There are many strange guys on ebay multiplying the average price 3-5 times on anything.

Just greed. The GF-777 was sold in huge numbers so rarity is not a factor.

Exactly.  I was looking for an earth lead for a Technics SL-BD22D turntable and there were many for a price a little on the high side of a decent price but one chancer had/has one listed for..........................................999.99 euros!!!  I managed to lay my hands on one for £7.50 by being patient.

I don't even look at those listings in fear of accidentally buying it  :blink:

I guess this is a marketing strategy. lets say you want to sell it for $3000. Just post simulator item for $10000 and buyers will think that $3000 isn't to high :w00t:

The same seller has many other expensive boomboxes including several 777s for a few grands each. Other 777s are cheaper probably because they do not have original boxes :-) The Russian culture of boombox collecting is still interesting. If you look at this particular seller's boombox pictures (example - https://www.ebay.com...eUAAOSwa0VZ-c6m) it is clear that he represents a store specializing in vintage boomboxes located in some shopping mall (the sign on the other store in the background says Евросеть -this is one of the largest electronics retailers in Russia). They have a lot of great boomboxes (but charge a lot for them).

Yeah, they're hoping to catch someone who wants to add a feature to their Mayfair apartment, I work in Mayfair and see many guys who wouldn't bat an eyelid at paying such prices.

The habit eBay sellers have of overpricing things I like, notably vintage clothing and electronics, are downright frustrating. Sometimes, the thrifts are one's best bet.

 

Though, never heard of someone selling a 777 for $10,000, seller must be mad.

Just a bunch of fake user names for one person to bid themselves up. Like they think no one will notice?

every few days --these  russian goofs flood ebay with a dozen outrageous $$$ listings --

wonder if they ever sold even ONE box ??

 

since ebay does not charge anything before an item sells --

they have nothing to loose

Keep in mind that ebay and PP take combined 13-14% on both shipping and item prices.

They are nice guys!

Living on HOPE!

It is how much they value for their box!  :w00t:  :lol:

Buyers don't have to pay that much!

They are looking for a Boombox Onassis out there.... 

Russian sellers have very high hope....and good faith...
