I think you nailed it right there. And they're not paying $200 bucks for it, either.

We'll see guys. I'm cautiously optimistic about next week (which I will end my auctions) and think this week was one of those weeks to forget!

classic case of supply and demand. Everybody held and now there is a ton on the market. The prices are not even going for what they were a month ago. It appears I will just lot up my relics and move on.

It seems to me BINs are commanding much better prices on most everything. Especially patches and pins.

Yup...these two have loads of personality. IMO going to be the two biggest stars to come out of this team in terms of media love/future opportunites.

Ebay prices are a joke, worse than the last few weeks. We are victims of our own hype machine. Just hoping Aly can win the all around, maybe we get a big price jump and take some of the sourness away.

I think this whole tape delay crap is ruining the hype. I try as hard as I can to avoid finding out outcomes early in the day, but it's darn near impossible.

Phelps stuff should still sell well with his making major history last night. Someone hit the BIN on my Ginter relic within a couple hours of listing the auction. Perhaps I could have had it higher, but it was already 20% higher than what previous sales were going for.

I just bought a gold Tyson Gay autograph, I just have this hunch that he is going to come big in the 100m so I decided to dive in purchase it for $35. If he can hit gold it will no doubt shoot up dramatically

My silver auto Brady Ellison just took a big hit. He got knocked out in the round of 16

I lowered my asking price by $20 and it still may not sell.

EVEN NBC DOES SPOILERS on the 7 PM news before the primetime olympics. How stupid are they...there losing viewership for every person that is too late to turn off their TV after they say "spoiler alert"

On another note, i do want a phelps auto for my PC, but will wait until the media and excitement die down.

That or your eBay seller miraculously can't "find the card and must issue refund"....

Oh wait just read what was said after your comment. That is kinda lame...

On another note, you won't want one when the media excitement dies down because the media excitement died down.

I put a Hope Solo gold relic /25 up for $.99 10 day auction, I'm hoping that was not a mistake

Bin? Yeah some sell, but I was looking at completed listings and it's a graveyard of BIN's that never sold.
