NobleSpirit Newsletter - eBay & NobleSpirit Penetrating The Upper Stratosphere of Collectibles, A conversation with our customer : PART (2)

 

We were thrilled to receive this email from a valued customer in response to our last newsletter (dated 7.28.2017). First we offer our customer’s email response to our last newsletter in its entirety and unedited. Second, we shall endeavor to supply our response.


Quote Anonymous Customer: “I am a stamp collector and have purchased some items from you in the past.  I enjoy reading your newsletter as it gives me some insight into the auction market and the thinking employed by sellers in that market.  Many of the insights you've provided have been useful to me.  I am not a reseller, nor affiliated with any, nor with any auction company or platform.

 

This newsletter, however, left me a bit ambivalent about your neutrality as a reseller who serves both buyers and sellers.  Please notice that I say "a bit" and that I don't consider you to in any way be a disreputable reseller.  But you clearly have shown your biases in at least a couple of ways.

 

(PART (1) 1.  The first bias is this newsletter's unabashed advertisement for eBay as an auction platform.  It makes me wonder what benefits you have received for your unqualified endorsement of them specifically, with no mention of other online auction venues.

 

(PART (2) 2.  Your claim that you get great prices for your consignments;  "we are consistently astonished at prices realized compared to ...." other alternatives.  Apart from the competitive implications of your statement, as a buyer I'm left somewhat suspect as to your motivations since you provide no specific evidence to support your claim made in the previous sentence.  For example, you don't discuss the quality of the material sold by you compared brick and mortar auction houses.  Are you truly considering "apples to apples" comparisons when you make such assertions?

 

As a buyer, maybe you now have a little understanding about my ambivalence about your recognition that you serve BOTH buyers and sellers.  After all, without buyers you have absolutely no revenue, and therefore no viable business model.

 

Additionally, as a buyer, I have sharply curtailed my purchases of stamps over the past many months as I've come to realized the size of the "bubble" in this market and it's unsustainability (which is also true of all asset markets today).  These factors make me very reluctant to make further purchases at this time.  Metaphorically, this market is driven by a herd mentality that will inevitably find itself at the edge of a cliff.

 

(PART (3) If you want to appeal to me as a buyer, you need to tell me why I should be buying stamps at these "bubble" prices.  This newsletter actually reinforced my view of the precariousness of the stamp market.

 

I'm not asking you to unsubscribe me to your newsletters.  I found this newsletter to be useful, but not in the ways you intended.

 

Thank you for listening.”

NobleSpirit Response PART (2) :  First, Thank you so much again to our anonymous client, for your very kind and considered communication. There were so many excellent point you raised that it would not do justice to attempt to respond to all of them in a single newsletter. Therefore, we will complete our response in the next 2 newsletters (3 total) over the course of the next 30 days.

“2.  Your claim that you get great prices for your consignments;  "we are consistently astonished at prices realized compared to ...." other alternatives.  Apart from the competitive implications of your statement, as…….inevitably find itself at the edge of a cliff.”

What does this tell us?
# The prices marked above are the original listed sale price. Only realistic offers were accepted.

# It is important to note that ‘aging’ (the length of time inventory is exposed for sale) is >less than 12 months in nearly every instance.

# It is important to note that incidence is remarkable with respect to the broad spectrum of diverse global buyers. Although, a couple of buyers did buy -more than one lot- (indicative of very strong customer acquisition and customer retention (satisfaction) capabilities.

# Sale execution is indicative of multiple factors in concert;  
-including, (a) the power of the eBay marketplace and all that represents in terms of a safe trading environment as well as an enabler of reputable performance based brands.
(b) the power of the NobleSpirit brand and all that represents in terms of reputable best practices as well as enabler of highly focused secular expertise and excitement.
(c) the value of a balanced harmony of experiential and product led strategies. Product without the experience is an empty vessel as the vice versa.

# With respect to the preceding point above, the last 2 months of high $dollar sales compliment another 8,000 + SOLD auction and store listings.

# And, with respect to the same preceding points above the last 2 months sales are but a mere indication of many, many more phenomenal high $dollar five and six figure sales we have made since January of this year and many years prior on eBay.

# These purchases are strong indicators of a passion seen in few other markets. A passion we would consider the polar opposite of herd mentality. It is a validation undeniably supported by discretionary asset class investment. Stratospheric validation of eBay, NobleSpirit and certainly the market. Tangibles at this level move well beyond perceived value, into true ‘apples to apples’ comparison, although detailed line itemization would be unfair to the comparable, where a target comparison would be unable to respond in this particular format of a newsletter. We suggest you see for yourself, compare for yourself regarding product specificity including all relevant factors, item, condition, etc.

# Detailed stamp by individual stamp comparables would take a lifetime to document here, however are readily available on our website price realized page. We urge our clients to enjoy this valuable resource. In doing so, one will notice much more often than not, the prices realized in comparison to traditional venues, even including what used to be some of the foremost recognizable reputable leaders in the industry. eBay has without question assumed the role of go-to marketplace leader in the industry and NobleSpirit, clearly the go-to market leader. See for yourself...
