Auction had been going 50 minutes out of seven days and all you've got are two 400 * 300 scans and a text description.

Reputable seller, accurate sounding description, and the scans looked good enough to place a marker.  I may choose to follow up that opener.  And then again I might not.  It remains to be seen. :wink:

*chuckles*. OK, fair enough! :P

Must admit that high bidding at the start of an auction is a new technique for obtaining a win at lowest possible cost, but maybe you're all kinda flush for cash just now. 8)

*looks at Stephen's bid increment...*. hrmm... spoiled my "fun" there.

Waiting for some poor clueless sod to come along and think "that looks like a nice investment" just because of the headline price, so soon.

Whoa guys, before you get too juiced up, I had to revise the description. I just noticed that 3 of the corners are actually barely poking thru the shrink. I revised the description, and if anyone has bid on it, please feel free to retract your bid if you prefer. I apologize for missing this detail, I had thought it was just the usual slightly tight cornering of shrinked mods. Still a great copy!

I know I might be being anal, but those of you who have bought/traded with me before know I am a stickler for detail.

Only 13 hours to go on Toymom's auction and there have been no additional bids since the 22nd.  Here's hoping that there is a fury of snipe's in the last couple of minutes.  :D  You guys aren't going to let "thedukester" win are you?

... and here come the vultures and snipe-kings! (I say this with affection, having done it many times myself) :)

My $735 held up for a couple of days, but it's history now. We're under two hours to go ... let the gamesmanship begin!

Plus, we get to do it all over again with Frank's nice-looking copy! 8)
