Lasted 7 mins. Appears the sellers lists an auction with a Best Offer option. That is an awfully small amount of time to notice, send an offer, have offer accepted, and have no one put in a starting bid.

I've put in Best Offers on books without an auction and no one get back to me in 24 hours.

My favorite are the auctions that start at $0.99 with a Best Offer option; the seller usually never responds to the offer before someone else bids $1. What's the point?

Another sneaker:

I was just looking at that TAR #41 on ebay. The lot buyer has already relisted it.  lol

Back in 2004 I believed the CGC Label. Now I don’t :boo:

After all the Baker misattributions by CGC and the price guide, I believe only my own eyes.

In order to keep this thread from page 2, I’ll post my latest acquisition. Been a bit since I bought a Baker. Had to have this one when I saw my name on the cover 😛

FYI, no matter who drew it or how much is or isn’t Baker it’s still a great cover IMO.

Well, I missed out by making an offer.  Hopefully one of you took down this beast. 

 

Debated it. Decided to be good, and like you I will probably regret it.  lol

Doesn't appear to be (directly) sold through eBay; item is "no longer available for sale".

Also, it's hard to find this listing on eBay; sometimes it shows up, sometimes not.

It is possible someone made him a private offer. I don't know this person so it wasn't me. I have always had a difficult time finding this book.

Most likely, yes. Was listed for ~10.5 hours before taken down. Though eBay is making it extremely difficult to contact sellers for those private deals.

And here is the item# for a direct search: 264333545811.
