GI G.I.JOE 25 25th Anniversary**WILD BILL**Card Variant - eBay (item 370091708873 end time Oct-06-08 23:42:25 PDT)
I swear I'd love to see an auction actually say it's just a plain old Wild Bill. I know some came out with the foil 25th card... but the real variants are getting buried with all these lame auctions.
Variant has replaced RARE in eBay titles. Remember when everything was RARE or HARD TO FIND?

I remember when the founder of eBay was sitting outside a CompUSA taking sign-ups back when it was just starting up.
I'm actually sad they are doing poorly, that probably means they have to increase fees to maintain their business expectations... which is worse for those of us who use it. Of course, I remember dealing with the scalpers before eBay was around, so I like using it compared to finding a magazine ad and faxing the person *laugh*.
Hey, the internet wasn't always so ever-present, you know

Ebay just ain't the same anymore. They screwed up & pissed off most of their members. They deserve whatever happens. Cause & effect!

i guess technically it is a variation in the card. Atleast its a a semi reasonable price.
True though, people get out of hand with the whole "variant" deal.
I dont like to hear about the job cuts. The economy is taking a huge dump and retailers are going to be getting hit hard. First 1600 ebay employees then 4000 walmarts emploteeys then who knows.
Im kind of worried about it. I just moved cross country with my wife and im having a hard time starting up a new carrier because of this. Luckily i have some good people helping me out, and i have been saving for years for this time.
Anyways though ebay sucks! lol

Heh. I've actually bought from him before. Not a bad guy, guess he's trying to make a buck. Though as stated above it does contribute to a larger problem of variantmania!

I see nothing wrong with his auction stating that this is a card variation as that is exactly what it is. I'd imagine there are people looking specifically for the silver foil version so nothing wrong with the flip side of it.

Ooooooh, its that rare "somebody bought it and took it home variant". With the amount of peg warming Bills, that is a variant.

Ebay is really getting crazy.
I think a lot of people stopped selling on there because of all the stupid charges and stuff. Not to mention, now a seller can not leave negative feedback for people who are dead beat bidders.
E-bay is getting what is deserves as far as I am concerned.
