You gotta read the fine print, dude. They are not in particularly good condition except for the 1000, it's 99 cents for a starting bid, not BIN, there are more than 6 days left on the auction, and the shipping is insanely overpriced. Using 068 pricing, the seller wants $35.96 for USPS Parcel Select or $81.30 for Priority Mail. No rating path exists that supports such massive prices. Using my best guess of weight and origin zip, I get $32-43 for Priority Mail. That also means he is using Paypal/Ebay's Parcel Select pricing, which is known to be marked up substantially vs "real" Parcel Select pricing. Since I am at least 4 zones away from the origin, Priority pricing == Parcel/Standard Post pricing. But, he wants more than double for Priority!

The $0.99 starting bid and the lack of a shipping price already made it suspicious as hell. The poor condition was quite visible in the photos too.

lol the cps 2500 has a Value Village price tag on the back for $4.99.

I wouldn't bid higher than 4.99 for all three of those things, due to the condition and shipping cost.
