Highest number of bidders on eBay auction sometimes indicate good deal to be had

Sometimes before I look at what the monetary bid of any sports card is on eBay, I’ll take a first glance at how many bidders have bid with the auction coming to an end.

For me, a higher number of bidders means there’s likely that a good deal will be had once the auction is over.

That’s because at any given time, the more bidders on eBay there are, that’s probably closer to market value (again at the time of the auction).

A good way to verify this beforehand is to look at the auctions that recently ended and see how much the card sold for.

If you look at recent sales, there’s been one that’s listed for $1499. However it was sold for less than that (the exact amount is undisclosed). But I’m going to assume it’s just a little less than that.

With $1499 as my upper limit then, I know I can continue to bid quite a bit if I had a shot of winning theĀ 2015 Bowman Chrome Prospect Blue Refractor autographed card.

Try this technique out for yourselves!
