Could of just been a bid war between the two but anytime i see a newer account with a 75%+ bid history with a seller, it makes me paranoid as heck. I probably should of checked the history first, but i really wanted the card and was willing to go 30 if i had to, so all in all im happy, was just peed off at the time.

If eBay were more strict on shill bidding this would not happen. EBay makes WAY too much money to stop it.

Total bids: 4
Items bid on: 3
Bid activity (%) with this seller: 100%
Bid retractions: 0
Bid retractions (6 months): 0
3 different items a total of 4 manual bids(it doesnt show auto)and all with the same seller i am assuming because it shows 100% with this seller. I could be reading it wrong though. Whats the best way to read this to determine if this was a shilled and jacked up price?
