Re: Board #10 finished

Sat Jan 07, 2012 10:11 pm

I was just watching the first board finish and I have to be honest, that was the most boring end to an auction I have ever seen.

The board was at £2,100 for ages and this morning it had gone back down to £1,900 and not a single person bid last minute like "always happens" on eBay haha!

Its great news for the foundation though, nice amount of money towards the cause but I was hoping for a big finish. Maybe #1 will be better!

When does the very last auction end? There will no doubt be a lot of interest on that one.

As you say, quite strange activity for eBay.  To be honest I thought this board, being the first ever sold would perhaps have gone for more, given the bids the batch seem to be attracting. Still a great price though!!

Can't understand how it went DOWN by £200 - didn't think that bids could be withdrawn.

However it's still about 6000% up on the "list" price even allowing for the extra bits thrown in so pretty good for the foundation!

Yeah bids can be withdrawn but you have to give a reason, either you made a mistake etc.

#9 just finished in a similarly dull fashion, not a single last minute bid...

I'm guessing as there become less available the prices will creep up!

The first one probably didn't have any snipes because the people who'd be willing to pay upto £2099.00 were put off putting in snipes as the price had gone above it and they didn't check it afterwards as it was already above their bidding amount.

Nice going though for the first two boards. £2830.00 is not too shabby, an average of over £1400.00 per board and would be nice if the trend continues although it is only about £0.0000000000000000000000001/man hour for all the work the foundation has done in the last few years

I'm guessing that someone wanted to help the foundation but didn't actually want to commit to buying the board, so bid assuming someone else would bid more. Seeing that they were likely to actually win the board, they withdrew their bid.

At least, that's what it looks like to me!

Cheers,

Barnaby

The bid on #10 was withdrawn at the same time that #1 went up to £2,500.

Board #01 is now up to £3,300.  I think I'll wait for a production model!
