Default I really hate shillers.

eBay.com Item Bid History

So, I am sitting there waiting for the auction to wind down and I notice the price increases by $5.00 leaps every 3 seconds or so. So I bid my max, and somehow eBay doesn't register the bid. So I lost out on this awesome card that I would have overpaid for anyways.

*sigh*
Shenanigans right?

But the bidders have 0% activity with the seller. Anything is possible but unless I'm not reading it correctly, it's not likely.

Maybe, but shill didnt win it so you could have won.

I doubt that qualifies as the winner wasnt the one bidding it up nor the one who was out bid.

Ah okay, I could be wrong. More frustrated with my bid not registering.

I was considering getting one but I kinda wanted to snag one that had been graded already and figured for 250-300 I could get that one. Unfortunately, it backfired so I will keep my eyes open and hope wilson's cards don't tank after I buy one.

A bunch of the bidders have little feedback, but are bidding on a huge number of items and not winning. This is a tatic of shill bidding. They bid on a large number of items to hide bidding percentages with one seller. Not saying if they are shill bidding or not, but it can be a little suspicious.

The five dollar increment really was the sign of the shill.

28 bids on 4 items. 12 bids placed on this item to get his 42%. This very possibly could just be the way the guy bids. Believe it or not, not everyone understands the "bid you max" process.

Either way it did not affect the final price. (not that that makes it ok if it really was a shill)

Looks like someone kept hitting the 1-click bid. The $5.00 increment was automatic at this price, was it not?

If you still want it for more than it went for, just contact the buyer and offer to buy it from him. He might be looking to make a quick profit. You never know...

Or work out some deal with a second chance offer if you get the buyer to agree to sell.
