UPS got you down? eBay making you cry? Need to rant? Do it here.

Here is a good how to instruction guide on how to turn a $1.00 bill into $300.00.

It's interesting how much information in this auction is incorrect yet it still went for so much. This is also the same person who sold the Lotus Diamond for almost $300.00

If anything, street art is the MOST LITERAL FORM OF ART! if street art has made any negative impression on society today, its that it has made every 13 yr old with $100 and an eBay account into an art know-it-all.

I paid someone on here around that much for a bill, so I am not sure his listing had anything to do with the price. Price seems about right (a little high).

Those bills are a bad bet. Too easy to fake.

Looks like the minty balls print is back on the block. I suppose the buyer came to his/her senses or it was a sham.

I guess the shill bidders got into a bidding war.

Maybe I wasn't paying attention but when the he11 did the Aung San Suu Kyi become a must have print.

Here is one that sold for %519

6 month average is almost $300.

Yeah, I was watching that one too - seems like something's off with the bid history - 1 guy bid it up in small increments from 165gbp to 950

I went to a benefit last weekend, Shep donated a “Obey Coup D’etat” AP print for auction.
Last bid I seen on it was $350.

Sketchy. Last bidder has zero feedback. Wonder if the seller will get paid.

2 bidders with feedback scores of 0 and 2 took it from under $300 to $1k. I wouldn't be surprised if some sham bidding was going on.

Sounds like they got greedy with the shills.

Since when does eBay allow you to relist an item less than two days after the auction ends without payment? It was obviously a shill from the beginning.

Finished at $366... And from the looks of the bidding they learned their shilling lesson.

Was the lesson that you shouldn't have two shill bidders on the same auction? I was watching that auction for entertainment.
