I don't see it from the bid history, unless he's uber-pro at it.

I apologize at my failure at humor. I forget to put one of these at the end ...or one of these .....or these ....maybe even this

What I am surprised is that kind of bid history with such a high-FB account.

The Prince...hard to say. Could be a shill since two late-ish bids, but with only 6 other bids with seller in the past 30 days, that's very little gain on very few auctions. But possible. I would probably say no especially since it's such a small price and it's not over yet.

As for the MJ guy - 92% of 25 is 23. He's bid on 19 different auctions, so is the implication here that he bid something crazy high 19 times hoping for people to outbid him everytime? People say if you bid crazy high early that's shilling - I view it more as a "reserve not met" thing where you'll only sell if it goes over that mark and otherwise it goes to your buddy. It's no worse than the reserve not met thing so I don't hate on "shillers" like that, but I do think it's as dumb as the reserve not met thing - use a BIN if you won't accept less and don't waste the buyer's time!

Grant Hill 1999-00 Stadium Club Never Compromise Game-View #NCG12 1:220 57/100$$ | eBay

this guy's so obvious and actually the buyer has a lot of fb

Just curious, which guy is the shiller there? They both bid just as the auction ended and both have high percentages with seller. The third guy was high too. Heck even the 4th was 22%.

Doesn't appear so.

I've bought from this seller dozens of times and never suspected any shill practice.

If you want to see an obvious shill then look at the link below. I reported this seller/shiller a few days ago.

seller: jor23dan34
shiller: younggunzkeifer

Click on the (1) bidder. Look at the bid history.

eBay.com Item Bid History

I called eBay and the customer representative told me that both accounts were registered to the same person. She told me that she would forward to their investigations team. I was told it would take a few days to suspend the accounts. Unfortunately (for me) I won quite a few cards from this seller and will end up paying over $100 more because of the shilling.

That is the shilliest shill that I've ever seen. Wow.

haha, the guy who won the auction. I was the # 2 bidder but the #1 had 42 different items bid on with 77% bid activity with the seller.
