    Holy crap! It even says it has some spots on it. When I got mine I folded it up, put it in clear freezer bag and put it in the closet. I haven't opened it since so it is in mint condition.

    Well, I know what I will be putting on ebay tonight. ;)

    No way I'm selling mine. Besides, you can always just have one made - especially at that price....

    Actually what you are seeing is that top bidder just had a real high maximum bid. Everytime someone else bids he automatically outbids his previous bid and that will keep happening until someone outbids his maximum bid. You cannot outbid yourself unless you have using 2 different screen names which is obviously fraudulent.

    That guy paid $355 for that flag.

    No, actually if you look at the history, that's not what happened. If that was the case, you'd see all the other people nibbling at his bid, but his bid would only show up once. Looks like shill bidding to me?

    Nonetheless HOOOOLY CRAP. Didn't know my flag / cape cost *that* much!

    He's talking about proxy bidding. You put up a maximum bid of say, $355. The auction doesn't go up to $355 automatically, but everytime someone bids, you automatically put in a bid until someone goes over your maximum bid.

    However, this guy kept bidding on it without anyone else trying to bid. Seems pretty fishy, but keep in mind someone actually bid $350.

    So wait, the winner isn't the only one with multiple bids listed in a row though... The list shows some earlier bidders with 2 or 3 in a row. :thinking:

    i bid early with like 15, then like 20 and every time i bid there was someone who had already had a bid in. so who ever put in the first bid may have put in like a 300 dollar bid
