    since it looks like somebody else is getting it, could you please let me know if , you run into another one ? and if you happen to run into a Kermit style book also, please let me know, because I really want both of those. I will be willing to pay for them , without going on eBay.

    Hey all - less than 24hrs left on this auction if anyone's still interested (or someone's going to get a bargain!).

    sorry I don't like bidding wars, but I tell you what, if that person wins it and does not pay for it, then I will be happy to buy it from you.

    Yeah, hadn't sold anything of note on eBay for a while. Forgotten how it can get towards the end.

    I don't get this. You don't have to get in to a bidding war. Put in your highest price you are willing to pay and forget it. e-Bay will automatically bid it up to the point of your highest price. A so-called bidding war is the only way for the original seller to get true market value for this priceless Muppet memorabilia. And if I were the original seller I don't think I'd sell it to you if the original buyer doesn't come through. I'd offer it to the second highest bidder. You refusing to "get into a bidding war" does nothing for the seller to achieve the true market price. Just a small rant from an experienced e-Bay seller.

    Anyway, congrats to simoragn for getting a great price! I put in my bid but was outbid as well.

    first of all, I'm over this now. second, me refusing to go into an bidding war, and offering to buy an item straight from the seller, is none of your bees wax. and sometimes you do have to get into a bidding war, I choose not to. I learned my lesson many times , it is frustrating. anyway, I'm sure that another one will show up. but in the meantime, I will focus on getting things for my sewing space, and other things.

    If it makes you feel bad, I was in a "bidding war" over some Little Muppet Monsters character sheets from a seller. I was willing to do fifty bucks but ended up getting outbid. The winner got to pay 74 + shipping.

    I mean it stunk but at the same time...didn't think that was worth what the winning bidder paid for for it. So in the end I feel i was the real winner there. xD
