She wasn't supposed to know about this one...but we all know that wives know EVERYTHING.

I have been killed lately on eBay. Seems I barely ever win. My sympathies!

If you were happy with your final bid and it didn't get it for you just means this was not the copy for you. One will show up and you will get your copy if you keep going for it.

Yeah. Raw, I couldn't go any higher. Slabbed, I would have paid $400.

Ebay is BS anymore, there are people like us that know what the prices are. Than there are people that don't know what they are doing and jack up the prices beyond what they should be.

The way I snipe is that I'll determine what my high offer should be, then I'll add $1.03 up to $5 to the actual bid...I then have no remorse if I'm outbid or out-sniped. The only time I have remorse is when I forget about the auction or wait too long to but the bid in, and then see the final winning bid is lower than i would have bid! Hate that.

question: I wonder what final prices would be like if eBay did away with "sniping" and added 1 minute on to every last bid. Would people be less interested and not try to outbid each other so much (the thrill of the "snipe" win having been taken away) possibly dropping the final prices? Or would the opportunity of having the last bid encourage even more bidding wars and higher final prices? Or would thing remain the same.

Personally, I like the ability to snipe as I just want to bid what I think it's worth without giving others the opportunity to place a "panic bid" and artificially drive up prices, like @vabchgent is referring to (I think). But eBay is probably loosing out on some final value fees. At least give the seller an option to just end the listing or keep it going when they set it up. Surprised they don't offer that.

I almost didn't get the bid in in time. I was multitasking. I'd be pissed if I didn't even get a shot at it.

One time I was wasting time in here typing messages as I waited for an auction to run down...only when I returned the time remaining was 5 seconds....I totally miscalculated time remaining and couldn't get my bid in in time...

Well, a CGC 9.4 just went up for sale. I shot the guy an offer. I anticipate a counter offer.

Got shot down. Still negotiating. Fingers crossed.

Not looking good. The guy anticipates up to an $800 price for it. Despite the fact a 9.4 sold on 12/18/16 for $501.
