Damn you, Tim Salmon
To be clear, I hold nothing against Tim Salmon. Just one of his cards. You see, a few weeks back, I was patrolling around eBay on my iPhone app. While it's a nice app to track bids and items you are watching, it leaves a lot to be desired when searching for an item. Anyhow, I was searching for some refractors and came across a few that were starting at $.01 with free shipping. I figured I'd put in a few low bids and then forget about them. If I won, I won. If not, no big deal.
One of the bids I put in was $.25 for a 1997 Tim Salmon Refractor. Or so I thought. I slipped up on my iPhone and did not put a decimal in the bid. My max bid was $25!! Ohhh noooo! If someone really wanted this card, they could have driven the price way up on me. I won the card for a few bucks, which was still a few bucks more than I would ever want to spend on a Tim Salmon card. My advice to you: bid with care and double check the amount you are bidding as your max bid.
If anyone is interested in the card, let me know.
