Thus the question mark behind my use of the word. You acknowledge in your post after this that prices have dropped. It depends upon when one is selling, the condition of their deck, their store's feedback rating, whether one has a good item description and other factors. Getting $1300 for an XA2 about a year ago is an anomaly in my market-watching experience, both then and especially now.
My point largely concerns how long one wants to wait to find that one buyer willing to spend "above market" coin for the deck while there are simultaneously plenty of other options available in comparable condition at lower prices. There are approximately a half dozen Marketplace listings for above ~$350 that have not sold in over a year. Meanwhile, several decks have appeared at ~$325 and under and sold.
Whether your store has positive feedback and how much and how recent are also factors. IMO, seller "Dooma38" with (a terrible) 77% positive feedback rating still trying to sell his Like New deck for $500 after over a year when there happens to currently be another Like New option for $200 less from a store with a greater number of feedback ratings resulting in a 100% ranking, is foolish.
