The FR works, but it has been spotty. Also it will change some parts to french. It is certainly still a work around, but as fast as all the other countries have disappeared I thought I would list two more that I had found worked this morning. The second one has been better for me as I can now see a full search instead of opening each auction.

Default best offer

Why is it anyone else's business what the accepted offer was? If I am selling, the accepted offer is between me and the buyer and if I am buying it is between me and the seller. No one else needs to see it.

Probably for the same reason that people on their BST threads remove the price they were asking for their cards after they sell them.

Short answer, because people want to see how much certain cards sell for, as this helps them gauge current market prices for certain cards.

This is good info to have, and I think we'd all agree that the more educated you are as a buyer, the better.

Previous sales info can be beneficial to sellers also, as it lets them know what to expect should they be selling a similar card. It can also help you judge the current value of your collection.

We may not need to, but we still want to, and it makes sense to educate yourself in this hobby with reference to pricing. These are ebay transactions, done in a public forum, and pricing should be viewable, imo.

Without knowing what prices these cards sell for, we would have no idea what to price and buy our cards at. I think we all agree that this information is very important to our hobby and without it, the market would be all over the place. Cardtarget.com and other price guides are very handy and help most of us tremendously...so, yeah, I think it is our business to see what price is accepted.

Ebay, themselves, promote looking at past sales to sell on their site.

So if they want us to search completed ebay listings so that we can price our stuff, then why don't they allow the information to be easily found?

Because prices on arbitrary things are dependent on past prices.

It's for items where sellers have 100 of them for sale and accept best offers. Any smart bidder would look at their previous auctions to see the lowest price they have accepted and offer that.

It's irrelevant for one-off's like sports cards but eBay can't separate the two.
