I have to agree with the last post. Predominately, I'm a seller. I've not really collected seriously for a few years. The prices most UK sellers are charging are crazy.
With this being the first premium set readily available in the UK, price setting is an awkward task (as something is only worth what someone is prepared to pay). Personally, I have set my prices on what someone would have to pay to buy from a US seller including postage. I feel this is a fair price as I mainly target the UK market and know they would prefer to buy from a UK seller.
People charging upwards of 20 for standard auto cards are crazy. The only cards that demand a high price are the 1/1 cards and plates.

Have to agree with Phil on that point (I think we both use the same supplier). Main problem with importing from the USA is customs charges. Plus the fact that so few sellers are prepared to ship to the UK. Especially this collection, citing licensing issues of all things! Once shipping and customs have been paid there is hardly any saving against buying from a reputable UK wholesaler. Plus, I get delivery in 24 hours rather than a week. And with a product like this, that time delay matters for re-sellers

Out of interest. Are people here more likely to just pick up the single cards they want? Or to buy a pack of 5 cards for over 20 in the hope they'll either get what they want or a super rare hit?
I ask this because I've been really surprised by the number of packs of cards I've sold since launch. I was expecting the high price to put a lot of people off. Even tho it is a premium product
