Ummm ... if I bid $65, how did I lose while it sold for $54?!?

the BIN would have disappeared once a bid was made. maybe he completed offline or cancelled your bid and went with the lower one for some reason.

Created a dummy account to shill bid on the item, realized he could get more for it, so he retracts your bid to allow himself to buy and retain the card?

Why the hell would someone accept less money for a best offer though? Makes no sense.

Maybe someone offered him more outside of eBay? So if he was shill bidding, he would win after retracting your bid so he can take the card and and sell offsite without receiving a strike against his eBay account?
