i don't know how anyone could pay that much for a few guys that may not be with the team much longer.

Just doesn't appeal to me...this guy will go after any browns card of any year from 1950 to present day, no matter if they are with the browns or not...he's hardcore!

i stuck a max bid of 16 on it and came home to see it went for that much and was shocked.

i mean the guys are all consistent
DA- consistently inconsistent
Braylon- consistently drops passes
K2 consistently runs his mouth
Jamal- consistently runs for about 2 YPC

It called a die hard Browns fan being a collector of Cleveland Browns cards, as opposed to a casual fan of cards that someone thinks they can make money on later, or being obsessed about whether others think he paid too much. Did he pay too much? Only he can decide that. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks the card is worth. Would I pay that much for a similar Packers card? If I could afford it I probably would. I'll bet this guys collection is awesome.

For the team collector such as myself, the players do not always matter. I've said it time and again, The only thing the a cards value means to me is that it makes some cards too expensive for me to buy. Once they get into my collection a Favre rookie, OK bad example I don't have any Favre rookies in my collection, would have no more value to me than a Terrell Buckley rookie. Does that mean I would sell the BF rookie for the same price as a TB rookie? No, and that's because of the value the cards have to someone else, not to me.

And a thing about shill bidding. Yes, there is no doubt that it is wrong, but one thing to remember is that there is at least one person who thinks the card is worth the final bid. A guy can't shill bid his own cards if no one else thinks they are worth it. A victim of shill bidding has a right to be upset with the the guy bidding him up, but he has to remember, if he didn't think the card was worth the $19.05 (as in the case of the Ware rookie) it never would have went that high. They always say that all it take is two people who want the card bad enough. Well, in some cases all it takes is one. Still, he is the one who ultimately sets the final price and that goes back to my first paragraph. Only he can determine what the card is worth to him.

if that Ware went for $20 then I wonder what I could get from my Ware Bowman RC Auto hahaha and I also have had bidding wars with DawgsnSuds, I mean if you are bidding for browns card on eBay you're bound to battle him sooner or later. Also look out for the new Browns headhunter 98z28ls1...he loves the Jimmy B's

I think on the Ware RC it's more a matter of misinformed/new ebayer rather than shilled. Shilled really is "overused" to the point anything out of the ordinary is thought of as shilled.
