This copy of RoSN just went for over $100..........

Over the last month I have seen multiple copies, some in shrink even go for between $20 and $45. Then this one just went nutso in the last hour. Just weird I thought.

I had a chance to buy more than one copy of this for under $30 less than a month ago and I was too cheap. Looks like I have lost my chance.

I'd bet that just two people took it all the way up from about $50. I've seen that many times - fortunately, a couple of times I was getting the money One of them was an ASL Annual with the £8.95 price sticker still on it which went for over £80... surprise

So the news is that an ebay auction wasn't entirely rational?

As with any E-Bay still auction, the value of an item determined by what the second most eager buyer is willing to pay.

If you look at the bid history on this item, the second place bid was $100 and the third place bid was only $45. So this really was a case of two impatient buyers. If the winner had waited (or just availed himself of one of the Buy it Now opportunities) they both could have had a copy for less than $60.

If you are thinking about putting your own copy up for sale, I would not expect it to fetch $100+ again.

Well, when I posted this I was actually in the buying market. I have since found and bought a copy on eBay for $21 so I am happy
