Ebay missed opportunity...arrrgh
Arrrrgh! I had been watching the Jeter card above on eBay for a few days. I need it for the 2000 HoloGRFX A Piece of the Series set I am trying to collect. Jeter is probably the most expensive card in the set, and with 14 minutes to go, the card was only at 4 bids and $6.50. I was going to take a shot at this sucker.
Well, I got distracted and when I went back to bid, the auction had just ended...and the winning price? $6.50. Arrrrrgh. I mean, maybe the other person had a maximum bid of $20 and I wouldn't have gotten it anyways, but I'm kicking myself for not even being able to try.
Does that ever happen to you guys? Do you ever watch an item, get ready to swoop in, and then miss your chance?
