Goes to show many people are paying attention to this space. he’s made good offers before but I’d never accept. I would counter offer higher everytime haha & thats when he reached out & we were able to make a deal.”
In the end Simmons and Mills struck a deal for 50 Eth and a signed jersey.
“We negotiated for a few days, I then gave him my final price & patience worked out,” Mills said. “The deal also comes with a Jersey signed by him. I am grateful, ETH talks at the end of the day.”
