So in an auction that shall remain nameless I won one raw card for $10, was charged a $10 buyer's premium and $9.95 for shipping. Needless to say that is the only bid they will ever receive form me.

I hope you'll reconsider the "remain nameless" part of that. Nothing wrong with sharing factually accurate information.

It common to have a minimum BP...i think Heritage has one

Scott, I guess my question was that minimum PB listed in the Terms and Conditions? I know Heritage also has a minimum PB ($14 I believe), but it is very clearly indicated both in the terms and when placing a bid.

And with Heritage it actually displays the price including the premium when you place the bid. I've placed $20 bids on $50 cards with them and thought I might win. I didn't, but I've come close.

It's a weekly auction and with lots as low as $10 I just never thought of worrying about a minimum premium. Why would you have $10 Lots? The shipping is also outrageous for a single raw card valued at $10 but that, at least, I was expecting. Anyone who wants to know who it was can PM me.
