Of course not - it usually means I lost my ass on a card if a flipper won it. With Ebay though, the UNDERBIDDER determines the final price, not the winning bidder. Without those card flippers, my cheap cards would sell even cheaper!! Not knocking those non-flippers, but those guys are usually cheap (expletive) who want a card for next to nothing, to hell with the "value". More food for thought for this comical thread.
what's your ebay ID???

Like Jay, totally agree with Chris.

Someone got something at a good price and is trying to make a profit. This is still The United States of America last I checked.
What about sellers who say they need to sell the card to pay for medication yet its listed week after week. I never cared anyones reasons

I have sold a lot of cards and not one of them I bought planning to sell. But things change over time, interests go in other directions. Sometimes you just see something else you want more and want to lock in some appreciation in something else. All good. No big deal. That's what makes the hobby interesting.

I am constantly irked by some dude who buys pictures from RMY and immediately lists them for outrageous markups. But what can you do. If I wanted it that bad I should have won at RMY.

Chris-I could not agree more with your statement. Now let's hope that lots of buyers flock to our table at the National and buy cards from you, Tim and me.
They can then flip away with abandon!

Cheers, Mike
