Hammer Down, 43 bids - 35,525.00 ,as if we are all not watching. Got back to where it started backwards. Folded hands then got back in ? I'm sure seller hopes this is final,and buyer has good intention.

I wasn't watching. But nice to see some major intensity surge this rare sign back up to some decent numbers in the end. Hope the transaction ends on a high note for seller and buyer.

Now that this sign has finally sold, I would like to add my comments.I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A FIGHT!!! I believe that I was one of the first potential buyers to offer the seller a very fair price for the sign, the seller accepted but stalled in getting it done. I'm sure she was inundated with requests to buy-it-now after my offer was sent.I took the no response as "Oh well, I tried but it didn't work out for me" approach. Usually I do not buy large dollar items on Ebay but I asked all the right questions and felt good about the responses. I did this because of all the comments that were made in Oct-Nov time period on this site regarding ending Ebay sales early and I gave it a shot.

Next, whomever contacted the seller from this site should have directed the seller to someone like Dan Matthews who specializes in such types of sales. If that had been done I know for sure that the seller would not have had to deal with all the drama and stress she endured. I believe that the final selling price would have been higher and all the negative comments would have been kept to a minimum.

There are many buyers who have adapted a "I am privlidged" approach to buying whether on Ebay, internet auctions or at the swap meet. These types of buyers take a lot of fun out of the hobby and they make it difficult for the regular buyer to compete.

Almost all of your points are very valid. Competition is in every hobby, business, ect. That's the way it is. The only level playing field here is which person wants to fork over more cash. If you have a desirable item, you will have other people that want to buy the item. More demand/ interest makes the price rise. You cannot expect to have no to little competiton when the item is on eBay. People from all walks of life buy on eBay.
