I'm not sure I understand. Do you mean that the TV coin shows themselves buy up items from eBay auctions, driving up prices?
Yes. When they're buying, price doesn't matter. It's been a few years but we IDed once by ship to which was Buteo Prtners.
Watchcount buyer history would then reveal for example 1 eBay buyer buying hundreds of sets / coins, mostly Buy it nows at prices all over the map.
So back when we, meaning my coin guys, used to play, we'd always when practical and mostly for fun find the pattern. My boys have long since all died, and I no longer play. But we had great fun.
This is ridiculous
are we going to start running low on "greater fools"?
For those who aren't familiar with the term, and mistook it for a personal attack:
Sure, maybe all the folks bidding these up past $1000 just want one of their very own, and want it enough to spend that money. I don't think that's the main driver, though.
It's now up to $1475 with a little less than 12 hours ago. Anyone want to guess the final bid?
When I hear "flipper", I still think of a poor, helpless beached dolphin, its mouth full of OGP 2014 Kennedy gold half-dollars...
Speculators, Flipper's, Dealer's, come one come all...
Well, what do you know? Not only do they exist, but someone outside a TPG actually opened one!
I’m not a huge slab fan. Plus the package had tape on it so I wanted to make sure it was actually in there.
