The opening bid on Ebay for my 1991 Fire Control Center lego set was $19.95. I bid on it on Monday and was the only bidder up until 3:06 pm yesterday. The bidding closed at 3:09 pm. Luckily, I am a true dork and was watching the countdown getting more excited as each second ticked down. So 3 minutes to go and all of a sudden someone bids $20.45. I re-bid with $25.00 as my max and it takes my bid up to $20.95. Nothing happens for a minute and I think YAY! But then I'm outbid again at $26.00. So I enter $27. Then $28. Then $29. Then $30. I can't seem to outbid him. He was winning with 3 seconds to go at $31. I entered $32 as quickly as I could and hit submit with 2 seconds remaining. I WON! I don't feel so bad about paying $32 for it considering the same set is on Ebay for $319.99 and $399.99 right now.
Have a GREAT weekend :)
