lol....
imagines bids on one of a kind and extrreamily rare items lasting for decades........

That would be good for Ebay...not for us snipers.  :?

Sniper programs would then be set to snipe according to the new rules. There would still be sniping.

One thing I really like about sniping is that I set it for exactly how much I am willing to pay and then walk away.

If I later decide that I don't want to bid, I just cancel the snipe with no one else caring anything about it.

That way, it is impossible for a shiller to bump me up artificially.

It is also impossible for Ebay to tell everyone else what I'm bidding on.

If I were a seller, I would hate sniping because it discourages impulse bidding.  As a buyer, I love it.

Nice price on the Dungeoneer Compendium Jason. I've been watching this and the highest I've seen it go for before your $10.50, was $4.04!

For some reason these sell very well. I think I'm sold out on them and they've gone for as high as $15 ( $24 seems silly to me too).

A long time ago, I actually made him what I figured were reasonable offers on this and another item.  As I recall, his counter offer for this one was $22.50.  I'm not surprised to see that he still has it.  I later found one NM from Noble Knight for $9.95, I think.

These often appear on Ebay in the $3 range.

I always ask $9.99 and they always sell, but I don't charge shipping. If I could get them at $3 apiece in bulk I'd stock up on them.

I made an offer of $11.50 and he countered with $20.5. I declined.

If any of you have one for less larcenous prices please let me know, otherwise I guess I will wait for a resonable price to appear on E-Bay.

Only if you constantly overpay for items on impulse like I do.

Shall be interesting to see this when a photo is posted, but the price sort of blew me away.

$30 for Lara's Tower, anyone.........anyone.........anyone.....?

normally $5

.......screeeeechhhhh (braking sound)....hold everything...I just found why the above Seller listed his at $30

$31.55 for a VG!!!

This is a common module and I have not seen a VG sell for over $4 prior to this!


....(edit)

In fact the Seller that has now listed at $30, had theirs listed at 99 cents but it passed in with no bids!

Remarkable!
