YES, is the answer to this question. Following the publishing of this thread, it appears that this bidder retracted bid(s) on our '63 Maris PSA 7. Based on the large number of bid retractions from this bidder, we have blocked him from bidding with us.

Thanks for the heads up.

I wish ebay would be as proactive . I hear they are having meetings about it so we have that going for us.

eBay wants to be the next Amazon, so they don't care about bid retractions, because they would rather you list it as a BIN than an auction.

Doing nothing about bidders who retract lead you to posting more BINs out of frustration. They win.

Could you reveal the ID of this serial retractor so that others can block him?

Curious if the blocked bidder might be the consignor of some of the cards pulled from auction. Poetic justice to an extent

No.
Peter, you know we cannot list ebay ID's on public forums without possible backlash. If others want to block bidders with bid retractions, they can do so on their own accord.

What possible backlash could there be from saying truthfully we blocked bidder X because he had 369 retractions? You aren't revealing his identity.

There could potentially be kickback from ebay. We think it's crazy but it could happen.

In 19 years of bidding on Ebay I have retracted exactly ZREO bids!
