Thanks,

The $9,500 was the Buy it Now Price; had the two bids at $3,550 approximately 12 hours into a several day auction.....then the listing ended with the item no longer available. eBay DID NOT share in a $9,500 sale; I'm only speculating because I do not know the actual facts but my guess is that eBay got nothing for the sale of these two signs.

An oldgas member/picker must have made the "right" offer to the seller to end the auction of the Chevy signs. They now have ONE of the signs listed for $26,500!...

I am sure there are those who wonder why flippers and pickers are treated with disdain. Screwing others in the pursuit of profit can not be seen by "good men" as stellar conduct.

Glad, I'm not one of those who thinks it okay to be a shady operator on e-Bay or in life. I'm sure these people conduct business in life with the same lack of ethics and greed.

Wow! Pretty quick to throw someone under the bus. I know both of these guys(father & son) and they are good people. Don't know the circumstances of this deal but I'll vouch for their integrity and ethics in everything I've done with them both buying and selling. Once again who are we to judge when a seller sells for X and the buyer decides to ask for y on the resell.

Most of us go by the "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

The circumstances of the deal seem obvious to me. They made an offer when bids were already made. For everyone that seen the initial auction, then notice it ended early, then see same sign listed by another seller... I believe can figure out what happened.

It's all a game. Money talks, ethics walks. Can't blame the buyers much, the sellers are the ones cancelling bids to end auctions. Sucks when your a bidder though and this happens. That's why I don't don't do it. But, through loopholes in ebay, bidders can make offers on items with bids and sellers can end items claiming they are lost or broken.

Doesn't matter if you know the person, know the family, or if it's you. However you twist it, doesn't make it right, in the eyes of most people. I assume.

And, your right, a person can ask whatever they want for something they own. I didn't see that being questioned here.

Just spoke with the owner of the signs. All the facts of this deal and why some might be upset are not present. I suggest everyone know the facts of a particular deal before voicing a strong opinion. I stand by my assessment.

eek Okay, before someone says something they may regret later, I will expose more details I had not intended to divulge. The signs I originally referred to were 4 six footers in New Lennox Illinois, by Chicago. A Red and white Phillips 66, Oval Standard, Sinclair HC and A Lion on the Rock. All refurbished on 1 side shown still on a metal building wall. They had reserves, NO BIN. There had been some nibble bids on all, I had contacted the seller with some questions on the Lion about condition. Next morning when I checked my E-mail for a response, all 4 were gone. The only way I had access to the HC and Lion was because they were put in my Watch List. Just sad to miss them because I expected the sale to go till end, not end early when there is no BIN. Guess I should have known better. The REAL question now that the signs identity has been revealed: Did and Old Gasser buy them? confused

Now I'm curious to know the facts... for us that aren't in the "know", we see an auction that was ended early because the item was "lost or broken". Did bagged find the "lost" Chevy signs or fix them for the initial seller? Or, did he make an offer on them and get the seller to cancel the bids, end the auction and sell them to him?

Educate me/us. So we know the facts. Otherwise I, and I assume others, will stand by our assessment.
