"VERY RARE"

"EXTREMELY RARE"

Which one is it? It matters oh so much!

"THAT IS GUARANTEED TO CONTINUE TO SKY ROCKET IN VALUE, AND DEMAND!!"

I love this, a guarantee. If he breaks his leg or gets shot and dies the card will still sky rocket in value and demand!

Report the item. Ebay won't do anything about it, but it's better to for your protection. If you bid on it and it gets shilled up to your bid by s***s, then you can dispute the final price. Negotiate with the seller for a final price and make sure you tell him you will not pay your bid because his buddy account is boosting the price. Ebay will back you up on the bid if you can not come up with an agreement with the seller.

It's a lot of hassle for the card I'm just gonna keep an eye on it if he needs to shill bid a Bradford up he is looking to get someone sucked in to paying way then it's worth. idk why sellers do this if you have a price you want for a card why not just start it at that with either an auction or BIN/BO

If you look back on his feedback, there is like 2-3 profiles that bid 97%, 100% with him. Loyal customers? They buy a few base cards and then bid on something big but rarely win... unless it goes for cheap... or too cheap. Weird stuff.. kinda fishy

what do you click on to find out the percentage of bids or whatever with a seller?

When your viewing the item click on bids that brings you to all the bids placed on the item then click on the bidder it wouldn't have their real name but it has something like d*** 1 then that brings up there profile which shows all the details on what they bid on and how much they bid on this sellers item

Old MacDonald had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O.
And on that farm he had some shills, EE-I-EE-I-O.
With a shill-bid here and a shill-bid there
Here a shill, there a shill, everywhere a shill-bid
Old MacDonald had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O.

I reported it. The more of us that do, the more chance eBay will do something about it.

I encourage all of you to report these things, even if someone else already has.
