A button you can click that's the opposite of the Watch button. I've searched "Grady Sizemore" about 50,000 times in the last 20 years and there are listings that I swear have been there just as long. Take those 2000 Bowman BCCG 10s and just obliviate them.

Now that is an inspired idea. I fully support and endorse it. I would love to never, ever see certain listings again. But ebay will never do something that could potentially impact their bottom line in a negative way.

I have one for you. This listing has been on ebay since 2009. Same card same seller. No i am not kidding. I offered the seller $100 10 years ago. And was denied. Now I would only pay 35-40 for it. Just plain NUTZ.

That's hilarious.
I agree with the idea. Great idea actually.
Another thing that Ebay could do (but will never happen) lower their fees. :)
Have a nice day everyone! ;)

Even when I just look at something. I get email and text alerts wanting to know if I'm still interested. @nosterbor I looked at the Juan auction. Now I'll get alerts for the rest of my life, or until it sells.

I would just like to remove all 2000-2002 cards and bobbleheads from my Sizemore searches. You can do that with search terms, but that will also hit items you might want to see. For individual listings that continually roll over, I'd just rather not see them. I doubt they'd ever do this, as it would surely be popular and tons of items would get blocked. Even just blocking a seller from showing up in your search takes quite a few steps and you have to know where to look. Plus, it adds to the complications of the search, making their servers work a lot harder on each request. But on long-term collecting searches you just keep getting more and more chaff with a lot less wheat.

The best is when they eventually just set the card to a regular auction and then it sells for 20 bucks. I bought a Puckett 1/1 last year that had been listed for $700. When he finally changed it to auction I won it for $165.

From a sellers standpoint, I wish they'd have a way that alerts you if a customer has bought from you in the past. Often times when I get an offer come through and the username looks familiar, I'll try to sort through their feedback to see if I had left any feedback previously, but that is a nuisance. I'd be more likely to accept a lower offer than normal, if I know they keep coming back for more.

Suitable competition is what they need. It used to be the place to go and probably still is, but it has gotten too big. Too much junk clogging up the site, probably because of all the free listings. Too much BIN or set price. I miss the good old days of auctions and a chance to score a deal. Now half the time, I don't even see the deal, because someone already bought it now!

When you search for a card.. just put "-bccg" in your search.. you shouldn't get any of those auctions/BIN's
Yes, but as I said, that can eliminate something you do want to find. There may be a lot of cards that includes one I need, but one of them is BCCG, something like this. If I exclude "BCCG", I miss that lot. Plus, people keyword spam, like "Gem Mint PSA BGS BCCG." In that case, it's almost always a BCCG card, but it does go the other way.
