Today is question day:
When it comes to auctions, how do you bid?
I prefer to wait until the last minute unless I am unavailable to make that bid in which I make my max bid and let things fall as they may. I know some people use snipping software, which I haven't gotten in to for no specific reason. I guess since I have been doing it this way since I started on eBay 17 years ago I will just keep doing it this way.
One thing that I try not to do is get caught up in a bidding war, I check recent sales as well as COMC and I set a price in my mind and stick to it. I read stories about shill bidding and I get all cautious but I have gotten caught up before on some of the more rare Griffey and Bader cards but when it happens I usually become gun shy and don't do it for awhile.
