    Default What's up with this Super Mario Advance 2 auction?

    Found here. Notice the sale price (it did sell, but was relisted).

    Maybe I'm missing something, but that's about 500 times market value, right? Two issues come to mind here:

    1) Why would you list this game for so much?
    2) Why would someone bid on this game at the inflated price?

    Sometimes I'll raise the price of a multiple-quantity listing to an absurd amount when I am out of stock yet I know I'll be getting more in soon. That way you keep the listing up, and everyone who "watches" the listing remain, it remains high on ebay's Best Match search etc. That, or the seller is trying to get some attention. You'll notice that one sold a few weeks ago at the regular price of $22.

    How so? Bad experience with raregamergirl?
    Condoleezza Rice is nice, but I prefer A Roni!
