    Anthony hates it when he's outbid on his Phil Bickford card by hundreds of pennies

    Yeah, I cannot compete with certain bidders. As a Yankee collector, I have come to grips that I will never own certain cards.

    If I have to be outbid, I'd much prefer be outbid by hundreds of dollars...means I wasn't close to owning it. I can accept that. I HATE being underbidder...and when I lose, I'm underbidder the majority of the time.

    I agree with this. There have been quite a few auctions in the last couple of weeks that I have lost by just pennies.

    Worse than anything, is forgetting to bid and watch the auction end for much, much, much, much less than you would've bid.

    Yes goob! I do this way 2 many times lol. Also, I agree, id rather be outbid by alot, than outbid by $1. And as @nevermore mentioned, being a Yankees collector, I'm used to being outbid on certain Yankees cards

    This is what irritates me the most because it happens soooo often, especially the forgetful part.

    I guess that wasn't all, but this is the card in question.

    This card had been listed last week at a $600 BIN/BO, quickly changed to $900, then restarted as an auction. Sold for $610. I thought I had a strong bid at $426, but got crushed. I actually enrolled in Gixen to snipe it, having fallen asleep at the switch too many times by now to ask for more of that heartburn.

    To make matters worse, I looked at sold auctions and see that not one but TWO Koufaxes had sold this summer, the last just a couple days ago. I've added two more Museums in the last week, so I'm happy to keep making progress and can't complain too much. But between the Gwynn, Koufax, and a Buster Posey (that had been listed together with a Bench for $18,000 BIN/BO, to which I just shook my head), I feel like I'll never complete it. I've never seen a Gwynn before, and hadn't seen a Koufax since 2013.

    Oh yeah. That is the worst, no question. That happened one too many times with me, so I changed my bidding habits and email preferences to make sure that never happens again.
