Quick bone headed question - have you ever run into any hassles from the rights holders with your auctions? This is one of the things that keeps me from selling anything on ebay. I've heard stories of Lucasfilm folks getting auctions canned; but that may just be for auctions which misrepresent the franchise (e.g. lewd Slave Leia illos).

Supplementary, I'm interested in your shipping methods (packing, tracking numbers, etc.) as well. Not sure if you'd want to discuss that here or in another topic.

Hey, it keeps the topic bumped either way. smile.gif

Good to see the red chick come from behind like that. Bad girls finish first. tongue.gif

If I had the money I would have bid, but final results went well out of my price range.

Good work!

This auction is speaking to the wonky / fickle nature of ebay bidders. Looking forward to seeing the final run bids, but eBay buyers crack me up - 99 starting bid? Game on! $9.99 - Engage Poker Face!

biggrin.gif I know what you mean-- truth to tell, the higher bids generally come around 3 hours before the end of any of my auctions, with the exceptions of a few cards. There are watchers today, but I believe the 9.99 price scares away anyone who hopes to snag one under $10. The 99 cent starting bid usually pulls new customers in, but I had a few eek by the 10 dollar mark last week. I hope that doesn't mean that I'll be facing a slowdown now. The current ebay sketch card selections seem thin. There aren't even cards up by the Fraim Bros. this week!
Who knows- maybe on my next auction I'll extend to 5 days or 7 days, start at 99 cents again, and post in even more forums! It's all about getting old and new customers excited!


Yeah I suspect the 99 starting point just hits that impulse purchase thing, and then group think kicks in when other bidders see folks bidding and it becomes a little horse race. It's not like Powergirl is unpopular, especially with the backlash over her stinky new design. In which case if you drew that one nobody would have bid. tongue.gif

See... it's a proven thing- 99 CENTS! COME GET IT!! It is impulse buying. I think I'll do more and give them a couple more days- the end result tonight was disappointing. I'm already half way out of this if this goes on like this. I give my cards too much time.


If I can offer a bit of advice. Something I've learned over the years is to schedule your auctions to end on a Sunday evening. For US bidders it's still the time when they're not watching TV, at work, at church, or running around - it's not quite a day of rest anymore, but it is a day of hovering over the Bid button with the cursor.

I'd like to see how your next auction goes if you try that.

Really though, it's Powergirl - you should have gotten a better return on your investment this time out.

Holy crap!

I keep getting outbid. mad.gif

Question, if you don't want to answer here feel free to shoot a private message - how do you promote your sales other than Comic Related?

Currently the high bidder on Domino. Sorry man, I'm Price is Righting this auction. The eBay mentality still hasn't latched on to me. Do it by 5, not $5 people! tongue.gif

Ha!

Domino is mine.

Now I get to study your packing methods and art technique in person. biggrin.gif

Please don't be mad if I try my hand at a Domino pin-up. You've reminded me how much I enjoy the character.

Sorry man. I empathize as a former bearer of a kidney stone. Hopefully it wasn't paining you too long.

Go man go!

I'd bid on a Witchblade, but I'm trying to scrape together some cash to order the Bob Peak art book. sad.gif

I can't wrap my head around how you cram that detail on a tiny card!
