I am still laughing. That board is from 1998. The boots and bag would have to be worth like $380 or be stuffed with dank weed.

This would be a fun long term thread. People just don't understand the concept of depreciation. And maybe people would google it before post their yard sale garbage on CL.

Dude wants to sell some Raptors at the super fair price of $150.

Only you can get them with free shipping both ways in tons of sizes for less than that.

Not knockin' your State, but both items for sale in NY? Everything is more expensive in NY, isn't it? LOL! Gotta admit tho,.. for a 15 year old board? It does look like it's in amazing condition! My 1 year old Rome is dinged up more that that thing! ...and my 3 yo Arbor? "fuhhgettabowddit!" :giggle: (Probably never been ridden and inherited by the seller or sum shit, eh?)

When you consider that there are still idiots on the webz sending money to Nigerian princes to cover the costs of transfering their "Nigerian Lottery" winnings? It's not entirely shocking to believe that someone out there might see this and think, "Wow!" What a bargain! :dunno: :blink:

I was in contact with this guy a bunch to see if I could move him. I was willing to pay $40 for just the board. 6 months later it is still for sale :eusa_clap:

Clown board $200

you'd be surprised what people will buy. My bf buys stuff at garage sales/thrift shops and selling it on CL for twice as much. Less then full time work but not bad cash income.

He actually charges fair prices to sell, he's just good a finding nice crap at the junk shops. He knows nothing about snowboarding but I was able to teach him enough things to look for to know if it's a board worth buying.

He picked up a kids burton board/boots/bindings for $25 bucks. Actually it came with some rollerblades too. All in good condition. Held onto it until winter and then I listed it for him on craigslist. Sold the set up for $125 and gave his kid the rollerblades.

Being able to fix anything also helps.

A guy on this forum, has/had a pair of new with tags, 2010/11 Burton restricted SB pants. I have a pair I really like in red. These were black accents. Had em up here & on the 'Bay for about a year. Wanted like $90 originally. Came down to $80, then $60 plus shipping.

I offered $40 plus shipping or $55 shipped and haven't heard a word. (...my guess is that what should b $10-$15 for shipping will wind up being charged at $20-25!)

I only paid $90 for my 2010/'11's on sale new in 2011! Retail was I think $119-$129, something like that. And that was at the corner shop, not interwebz prices.

I Wasn't about to pay that much (when u add shipping) for 3 year old pants! To my knowlege they r still for sale! :dunno:

I guess its worth it to hold out for the extra $20-$30 bucks paid by clueless ones?

Hahaha. Yeah dude. I offered the guy $40.00 for that solomon for my outdoor backyard bar. Its really not even worth that if the boots/bindings are also from 1998.
It would make a cool decoration. The boots would be cool planters.

The only thing worse than that is the dude who tries to sell his LTD or Lamar board/binding set for $200 because he paid $250 new 3 years ago and only rode it "once or twice."

Then they say "I am willing to negotiate make an offer." Screw that. Re-post at a reasonable starting price and I will make an offer.

To be fair I did.hook up with a pair of 3 or 4 year old.Burtons in good shape for $20. That is correct pricing.

and even THEN...good luck gettin' a grand....:huh::)
