Default IS something wrong here?

Long story short I listed a Gridiron Wilson gold pullout auto #001/299 for a 3 day auction. I have a bite at 29.99.

There is someone else who has one listed for a 5 day auction and it is up to $76 with a good chunk of time left.

Is there something I'm missing here? If you have any recommendations about what do do let me know.

His:

2012 Gridiron Gear Gems Rookie Jumbo Jersey Auto 320 Russell Wilson 299 | eBay

Mine:

2012 Gridiron Gems Rookie Gold Auto 320 Russell Wilson 001 299 Mint Bonus 1 1 | eBay

You listed it with a high start price. $.99 works better

You listed it as 1/1 when it really is not

misleading title definitely, but it hasn't even been 24 hours yet... be patient.

second one is schilled in my opinion look at the sketchy bidding on it. not sure why that would be a $70 card, it's not as nice as some of the other stuff with sick patches that sell cheaper.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

bad start price
bad title
bad shipping price
bad title
Too much extra blah blah blah just sell the card if you want to include freebies I don't care while I am bidding they are supposed to be free anyway!

Good Luck!

PS the other one is from a much higher rated seller with lots of repeat customers that also helps him.

I simply wont bid on that 1/1 crap unless it truly is a 1/1. Misleading and makes searching for true 1/1 a pain.

Also the shipping price is high.

Yup. Guy bid 12x on 1 card from a seller who has thousands listed. It's obviously being shilled.

1. It's still early in the auction
2. I avoid sellers who use the fake 1/1 crap. I'm sure i'm not the only one.
3. I don't know how much the "gold" sig adds, but there is a BIN for like $45 of the same card not signed with gold sharpie.

The gold are the 1st 50 of the card signed, so even though it is numbered /299 it could be argued that it is really /50

Would it be a dick move to end the item and relist it for the description in the title and make shipping changes??

...and now for the constructive criticism...

I have no problem with someone telling me that they like/don't like it but I would expect advice if you didn't.

Just fyi....I don't remember when it starts, but Ebay is going to start charging sellers final value fees on listings ended early that have bids cancelled. Not dogging you, but all sellers should be aware this is coming, and make sure they list properly the first time.

Thanks I did not know this. I appreciate the heads up. I just went ahead and edited the listing.

A big thanks to those of you who provided constructive criticism and honest opinions. They were/are greatly appreciated. Now go place bids haha.
