I have a card on ebay right now (the one in my sig) that currently has well over 100 watchers. I have rarely heard of auctions with more watchers than that so I was interested how many watchers was the most you have ever had on an eBay auction that you listed?

It's really exciting, and I definitely feel like paying the extra $20 for featured listing (where the card shows up at the top of the search and purple) was worth it.

Nice. I think my high before this was in the 20s, but I haven't sold too many high end cards on ebay yet. It really is fun to watch though.

I have found little correlation between watchers and the final price. The few items I have had with more than 30 watchers have had little or no activity at the end and ended at or below the expected price. Yet everytime I get a lot of watchers on something I get suckered into the hype that never materializes.

Yeah I was just talkin to someone about this last night. Having more watchers doesn't actually increase the value of your card, but it definitely gives you a better chance of seeing a last minute bid war since so many people have your card on their radar at the same time.

Coincidentally, the auction now has 998 views too...far more than I ever would have counted on.

I'm one of them. :D I just really wanted to see what the card would sell for.

OK i'm an idiot, (see all the members rush to add jarcar to their ignore list) I thought you ment how many cards I have watched at one time... ya I know stupid. ;)

The most I have had watching on one of my auctions is 28.

Bump for any new members who want to take the quick poll..

And it's up to 140 watchers with under a day and a half left. It ends tomorrow (Sunday) night so I think it still could pick up a number of watchers today
