    Seems like a fair price to me considering it also includes Blitzwing and Blaster.

    I understand about the price..but I am not sure on how to spot shill bidding? Maybe someone can help me understand how to do that. All I can say is that the zero bidder looks kinda fishy to me. What do you think?

    thanks again,

    bryan

    Click on the zero's user id, it shows bids with 3 different sellers, a clue to him not being a shill.

    Besides, i've seen just the tapes alone in a lot like that go for over $200

    Noobs like tapes.

    hehe, okay.....I like tapes! Not a noob here, and I like tapes. Well, maybe a noob....it depends on who is asking....some people have been collecting since 84. I collected back then as a kid....but then took a break for girls and baseball....then the navy and booze.....then marriage.....and now what better else do I have to do, no kids yet! hehe!

    thanks, bryan

    zero-feedback noobs are some of my favorites, at least when they actually pay. I've had more of them overpay than veteran eBayers. I always figure they're using price guides or something to determine value, not eBay itself.

    Tapes are cool. CDs are better though.
