Unhappy I hate Ebayers that RETRACT BIDS!!!

I had a bid on my Jackie Robinson 2008 Topps Sterling sealed Box for $449.49 for over 24 hours from a bidder.

Now he has retracted his bid ...
stateing that he entered the wrong bid amount.

for over 24 hours he had entered the wrong bid amount?

Unbeleivable.

Just needed to rant because I am sick of people being able to walk all over sellers on ebay. It is time for a change where we can sell higher end stuff somewhere else!

That has happened to me a few times. He should have known right away if he entered the wrong amount. There should be a policy that says if a bid isn't retracted within the first few hours for the wrong amount then the bid cannot be retracted. I know there are people that would disagree, but this is just my opinion.

Don't know if you checked this, but yesterday a Robinson box sold via BO for 424.24. Same guy? Sounds like some clown who found a willing seller at a lower price and slapped you in the face. If that's true, sorry to hear about it.

I can't believe how 'buyer-biased' EBay has become. Sickening...
