Default Ever have an Ebay bid win that you totally didn't count on?

Ever see an awesome card on Ebay and think, "This will easily sell for $150 or more, I'll bid $40 just to see what happens." Then forget about it for a day or two only to have your bid win? It's a strange mixture of excitement and "oh, now I have to pay $40."

(Edit: This seems to usually happen on auctions that end during the late morning/early afternoon.)

Hahahha I can totally agree with this post. Happens to me all the time. I got some great steals this way, and some cards I just threw a bid in so someone wouldn't get a nice card for cheaper than I paid and it backfired. Lol
In that case I have 2 of the same card now.

It happens to me when I bid when I first see an item listed and I dont want the seller to end it early. Happened the other day and I got an Absolute jersey auto of Cutler for $25. Definitely not gunna complain, but I wasnt expecting to win it.

Jamarcus Russell auto for $5. Not sure if that really was a good deal or not.

yeah nothing big but I put a 1.00 bid on a joe haden/ montario hardesty dual auto from threads and nobody else bid at all I was happy but I was also mad because I bought the same card for 15.00 the month before because I thought it was a good deal.
