I have been looking to pick up a 2008 UD Piece of History Superman Cape for quite a few years. It is a piece of the cape that Christopher Reeve wore during the filming of Superman III. Usually the cards go for $25-30 range and every time I have bid, I always end up losing by $1 or 2 in the last seconds
This auction showed up 2 weeks ago with a reserve. I bid, but my $26 bid didn’t top the reserve, so the card was reposted. The second auction ended at $25 and change, again, didn’t hit the reserve so it was put up a third time. Suddenly today, someone with 0 feedback bids enough to top the reserve. Of course, the bidder with 0 feedback has 100% bidding with this seller so there is no question about shilling. I called him out, he responded claiming innocence and saying I shouldn’t accuse him without proof.
What are the chances this card shows up for auction in 2 weeks by either this same seller (oh… the buyer fell through) or from the 0 feedback buyer?
The guy is a new seller, but he jumped right in to shitty selling tactics.
