Default Lesson Leared...Don't List Cards to End Super Bowl Sunday

When I listed it I completely forgot about the Super Bowl and I remembered way too late...

Ray Bourque 2011 12 Zenith Yours Truly on Card Auto Autograph SP Short Print | eBay

Oh well...someone got a great deal from my stupidity...

Hard to say - I've been outbidded on numerous cards today that I was hoping to get. I've lost out on 2 and have about 6 more I'm watching and so far no great deals on the horizon.

Maybe I was just being overconfident in what it would go for. It is a short print from the Yours Truly set so I was thinking $50+....

I think that's about right for that card.

I have a card ending tonight as well. Only set in about half an hour ago that it's ending today, and at that point, like you, I'm #@#@#@#@ out of luck.

Oh well. It's already got some action, but I should've realized earlier. Like you, somebody is getting one hell of a deal.

You could do what some ebay members (happens to be a member here too) did and pull the auction before it ends and relist as a BIN OBO. Really annoyed me!

At least you're being stand up about it and still selling the card. Nice to see some honest people!

With eBay mobile and computers and smartphones everywhere I dont think there are too many bad times to end an auction other than Friday and Saturday nights. Its just too easy to get on and bid anymore.
