I hate it when I can't be live at the computer for eBay auctions! Today I knew I was going to be out with The Girls when these 15 auctions (for individual holo Polkemon cards) were closing, so I went and put in my bids a couple of hours previous. In nearly each case, I was beat by 5¢ ... which makes me feel that had I been able to be "live" on these, I could have countered. Plus, I ended up putting bids in which were probably twice what I would have gone in for if I had a chance to then move up. Grumble, grumble, grumble ... bid on 15 cards, and lost 'em all. Oh, well ... I guess that's better than having won one or two at my high bid, since that would have (with pro-rated shipping costs) pushed the individual cards out of my "target price range".
