    Can someone please tell EBAY this 1990 Fleer Jose Uribe fad is stupid.

    Just cause I look at 90s Fleer inserts regularly doesn't mean I have any interest in seeing 1990 Fleer Jose Uribe cards for the prices of $7,357,410.01, $75,000, and $369,369,00 constantly on my EBAY homepage. I really don't get what EBAY is trying to prove by "recommending" these or if they're just trolling, but it isn't funny and never has been.

    I'm talking about the homepage. The first thing mentioned are my watched items. Fair enough. But right under that is Fleer baseball cards "recommended for you". And then all these Jose Uribe cards are showcased. It's bad enough that they think I would want the card to begin with, but then they list examples where guys want thousands to millions for a card that would sell for 10 cents. This would be the ideal April Fools joke. But when these same cards keep appearing on the homepage for months, it makes me wonder what the freaking purpose is.

    I really don't get what EBAY is trying to prove by recommending these.
    Why are you telling us to tell eBay when you can do it yourself?
    And eBay is not trying to "prove" anything. It's just part of their algorithm based on search results.

    It mostly exists due to nostalgia. I remember the Fall of '90 riding bikes with my friends to the LCS and staring longingly through the window. You could buy a pack of Fleer for $1.50, singles of Ripken or Canseco for $5, or a Uribe for $7,357,410.01.

    Simpler times fellas... simpler times.
