I don't know if the seller is someone here, but there is a raw Bloodshot 0 Platinum on Ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/332892475535

It seems like it has been a while since a raw or graded copy popped up.

I think this book has been relisted every few months for almost a year. I think the fact that it's not graded and has some creasing on the spine and indentation on the back is why everyone seems a little tepid to jump in. At that price, I think most people want a 9.6 or 9.8.

Great copy for people who don't grade books though. And I wouldn't worry about the seller. Ebay almost always sides with the buyer if there is an issue.

I think a realistic raw price would be in the $500 - $750 range.

A CGC 9.4 sold last year for $2k.

I sold a 9.4 for $1700. I would imagine it would be worth more today.

I actually offered him near the Low end of that range last year and thought it was a fair offer based on the books condition

I made a similar offer with no response. He thinks it's worth a lot more than it actually is.

I think a raw 9.4 would be higher than that range now. If I felt confident it was a 9.4 raw, I wouldn't hesitate to drop $800, because I would more than double my money on that graded, easily.

I would do the same (except for my personal collection) however I think this book is at best 8.0 to 8.5 and potentially lower than that.
