    Need Advice

    Im in a bidding war with someone on an Ovechkin card, it would deff be my best card, and I really want it, only problem is, its already heading towards 200, and theres still 4 days left, its just going back and forth between me and one guy, hes not making any real bids, just ones that barely beat mine, while Im putting in solid bids, it sucks even more because I cant message the person because they block it, any advice??

    snipe him with your Maximum...or do it the old fashion and sit infront of your computer and put a bid in with 5 secs left and hope for the best.

    This is why I usually don't bid until it gets close to the end. Why be disappointed and anxious days before the auction ends? Just have a $ amount in mind and go for it at the end.

    www.auctionsniper.com is another option. If you want, I can "refer" you to the site (I get 5 free snipes out of it if you join). Let me know. I've used it and it works great.

    I never drive up the bid any days before an auction ends. While it sucks getting sniped, this might be the time to play the snipe card because he may plan on sniping as well. Just remember that if you're going to snipe, it's all or nothing. If your bid isn't high enough, the auction will be over before you get a chance to increase your bid.

    Yup, sometimes you get your card for alot less than you were willing to pay. Put your max bid in at the last second...then reap the rewards!
