Didn't mean to imply that. However, what I did suggest was that the Zoot that went for 350 bucks or so a week or so ago was really strange, jumping up to a crazy price all of a sudden when up to that point, one rarely went over 115 or so. One logical explanation (though others could exist) would be that shill bidding was the cause. If that was the case (and again, it is all speculation based on an inability to understand other reasons. . .which was the purpose of this thread to begin with), then I thought that you might be benefiting from a potential shill bid from a week or so ago, as now bidders may think that that is Zoot's value, and are willing to bid for that price. Not that you are involved in shill bidding. In the final analysis, none of the complaining about price, selling practices, etc. really matters though. Sellers could only make profits off of shill bidding if somebody else out there (not those helping the seller) thought that an item was worth as much as it goes up to. So, though it sucks that a lot of us just can't pay that much, that is the market, and consumers always have the option of not paying. Didn't mean to insult you or anything though, PMK (or the guy who sold one for 350 last week, for that matter). Instead, I give you props on selling your Zoot at an opportune time! Good work paying attention to the game.
