It should have. VHS sucked and Beta is still used as a viable SD tape format in post houses.

I don't sell much on ebay and I guess this is why. I think I now have the distinction of being the only person who sold two prints on the same day while breaking the EB record for the lowest sales price on each. Neither is a particularly valuable and I expected to lose money.....but man did I take a beating.


180 South for $10.50

AND to make matters worse, Nico for $26.52

Wow, that's terrible. Nico is usually at least $75-100. Bad timing I guess.

I've gotten some great deals on prints on ebay so I suppose it was my turn to feel a little of the pain. I suppose what comes around goes around.

Considering the 6 month average for Arab Woman Red is $658 and the last five Arab Woman Golds sold for an average of $510, I think both for $660 is a great deal. I wanted to get these for a while and it more than makes up for basically giving away the two prints from my post above.

you got a good deal, congrats... it's further proof as to why prints should be sold individually instead of sets/groups.

That's awesome. You could put one of them back on ebay and probably end up being into the keeper for less than $100.

I just scored 10 new obey wallets for $35 shipped. Needless to say I'll have some cheap gifts to give after I pick a few out to keep.

Nice pick up. Almost no one looked at them. The counter read just 4 when I checked out the listing.

$165.53 for Rock the Vote S/N Framed Edition
These were $250 when they came out in 2008, I had one back then and sold it a few years ago.
Glad to get one back at a great price.

Will this retired stencil and mixed media collage seriously go for less than the original price?
Claim originally to have cost $3500 and now with one day to go the price is $2125.

The price is completely irrelevant at this point. Everybody bids in the last minute on ebay.

So what is the tactic here?
I can understand people who bids 5 minutes before the auction ends.
But why wait 4 days and then bid when there are 18 hours left
Does the difference means anything ?

Most people who are serious about winning something on ebay wait until the last 30 seconds and put in the absolute max they're willing to pay. That gives them the best chance of winning without getting their bids shilled up by the seller or other idiot ebayers. People bidding with 18 hours left either just feel like bidding for the sake of bidding or they just found the auction and don't understand ebay bidding strategy.

If you look at the bidding history, bidder d***t( 112) seems to be either the seller shill bidding or someone who doesn't understand that you can enter your max bid and walk away.
