eBay and how not to use Best Offer

Ok here is a bit of a rant.  I'm interested in a card that has a best offer, but the seller doesn't seem to grasp the concept of that very button nor terminology.  I offered the guy one time and he never countered, accepted or declined my offer until I contacted him through eBay.  He came back with a counter 15 Bucks below his BIN and I counter again upping my offer 35 bucks over 24 hrs ago and he still has yet to respond.  If you are going to use the best offer function at least review the offers you receive and accept, decline, or counter.  If not just leave it as a BIN an thats it.  This auction has been listed for about a month now and each time it has never sold so I figured I'd take a stab at it, but my gosh this is painful.  Plus the auction ends in under 24 hours so you think the seller would respond.

End Rant......

Well at least the Mets took 2 out of the 3 from the Braves.  Shame on you MLB for making the Mets play a night game then fly cross country to the west coast for a game Friday night against the Angels.  Usually travel days have day games not night ones. Shame on you MLB.



  1. It is impossible to avoid, but it does suck. The Brewers had a night game last night before they flew back home to face the Pirates this weekend. At least you get three hours back going west. Also, too much money to be made with night games.

  2. I've been in your shoes before. It sucks, because I'm anxious to see if they'll accept my bid... but in the end, I just try to not get my hopes up. The key word is "try". I hope you get the card!

    1. I know what you mean. I was probably going to use the BIN anyways right at the end., but he did counter with about an hour to go. I did accept being it was reasonable because I wasn't going to have another Harveyesque issue.
