Time for another round of auctions. We'll be doing groups of auctions over the next couple of weeks, clearing out some of our leftover other publisher books. The first group is up now.

Ummm...some of the prices seem surprising, are Dan and Brian fluffing up the bids? Haha

I am really surprised at the price for Insomnia. Is that the going rate these days?

I actually see this a lot with extremely wel-known sellers like CD - the books they're selling are going for significantly more than all other copies that actually go to auction. Another seller this is common with is Shocklines. I suspect it's because a number of bidders are led there by the emails rather than being regular eBay users.

I've noticed this as well. I think that it could also be a higher level of confidence in the seller. I know that I'm willing to spend a little bit more from a seller I've done business with before than with someone I haven't.

Yea that can happen. It's probably because we feature our auctions in the newsletter and shoppers that are frequent ebay goers bid on the items.

Just a bit of a sneak peak for you guys. We are going to have a ton of auctions coming up. As on top of our typical "cleaning house" auctions we have been asked by a long time customer (who is having some health problems) to sell their collection for them, so we'll be rolling into that after we get through our current set of auctions.

Holy crap! That copy of Insomnia is up to $2,247! That has to be the most ever paid for a gift edition?

Maybe Dan and Brian are trying to outbid each other.

I don't know who the bidder c***c on the Insomnia is, but with a feedback score of 2, I'd be very careful there.

Holy crap...I never want to sell my collection but if gift editions are now in the $2200 range what are lettered versions pricing at?

Zeising Books (who published the Insomnia special editions) still has new gift editions on their website for the original price of $75.

D'oh!

I forgot to put in the decimal point! I meant to only bid $22.47.

Something about this just tickles me.

LOL. That bidding is very odd and I have a feeling that the sale will not make it to check-out.

That is insane!! Time to sell mine!!

Yea that's back down to a more reasonable bid now. We know the high bidder very well, and Brian sent a message to the other bidder (with a feedback score of 2) via the eBay messaging system. We'll be canceling the bids for the second bidder here this morning. If that second bidder really wants the book, we'll find a second copy to sell them at a more reasonable price. We are thinking a mistake was made or the bidding was a result of some kind of confusion.

I wouldn't worry about a feedback score of 2 as we all had that low of a feedback score (and even lower than that, lol), but that price was crazy! Could have been a kid/teen who got bid happy

We weren't really worried about that per say, mostly just how we were distinguishing between the two super high bidders.

Don't blame you there, something about that bidding wasn't right. Whether they were fake and were never intending to pay or if it accidental or something, there is no good reason for a gift edition book to go that high if there is nothing special about it!

This round of auctions ends soon. I believe I'll be putting up the next round for tomorrow.
