A return waiting to happen.

Good one Pete.... You are correct....Is this really drama though? Or just a disgruntled man bitching about something? Not sure the two are related. And I vote for the latter.

PS - I think I was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy overdue as I haven't really bitched about anything in a long time. My apologies if my bitching is out of line.

This doesn't have to be Happy Land where everything wonderful and sweet and every transaction is wonderful. I thought your "bitching" was hardly that. Frustration.

LOL..touche....the old lady likes me enough...I have a few redeeming good qualities enough where she might not envoke the "grade guarantee".....but who knows.....I think they actually have game shows based on that premise.

This card has been available as a BIN for weeks by a very reputable seller for $110, while the second card sold last night for $130.50. I was watching the PWCC card because I falsely assumed it would go for under $100. The buyer of the PWCC card had a feedback rating over 2000. This was not some novice buyer. I just don't get why someone would pay more for the same card that's been available for weeks for about 25% less than he ended up paying.

I know this card is very small potatoes, and it's not exactly apples to apples, but I wonder, overall, if it suggests some type of psychological effect that large, big name auctions have on people. The excitement of bidding in an auction where cards are selling for tens of thousands of dollars, and you're a part of that. I find it fascinating.

I call it the "PWCC Effect". It would make a great college thesis. It combines elements of sociology, psychology, and business all rolled into one. It is basically the same thing Mastro did years earlier, except on maybe a larger scale, and with an added element (The PWCC HE designation is sheer marketing genius at no added cost).

Default Winning observation

Hi All
I have an observation and wondering if any other have had the same.
I purchased 50+ lots and it seems that the under bidder on a majority of the lots that were 5's was the same bidder with 100% bids on his auctions. That this bidder places a bid of between $69 and $72. w***r (183. Now if this bidder didn't place these bids i would have won them at half the price. Am i out of line thinking this way? Or maybe this bidder was thinking maybe he could get these Obaks and a great price and resell and placing these bids at $69-72 would yield more profits than $38. I know we place bids on what we are willing to pay and I a tickled to get these Obaks and what i feel is a good price but just thinking hmm. What if

If I were to consider selling my collection or any big cards, I'd consider consigning like that instead of listing them myself. Seems that gets more money than just me listing and selling on my own.
