Check out this two-person bidding war on a Shag print.


I'm very content with my print in its current location (framed and on my wall...although at this price I'm tempted to crack open the glass and make a "sacrificial" E-Bay offering.

That is insane! I couldn't imagine paying that much for a print or putting in bids of $1000 and more. Must be nice to have so much disposable income...

Insane, yes; but that's what they're going for. Check the thread called "Endless Shag Merchandise"... for an account of my own Shag-print eBay experiences. A Shag print of "Departure/Arrival/Stopover" went for $1900 in April. So a few weeks ago, I listed my copy of the same print on eBay. It went for $1500.

Now this has got me eyeing my own Sepik Explorer and wondering about its fate... nah, I'll probably keep it.

This bidding war is a perfect example of how not to go about bidding on ebay. If either of them had waited to bid until the final seconds of the auction, that bidder would have paid considerably less.
