Angry TC-this is annoying and I am cranky...

I decided to get some trading cards to try and started looking and watching a bunch of auctions on eBay. Some one (or a group of someone"s as they all have identical login names...a leter and 2 asterisks and another letter) are buying up all the Series 1 trading cards on eBay-especially those that come in complete boxes. And apparently, they pretty don't much care how high you can bid. Whoever these people are, they have virtually bought all so far and many of the newly retired plushes. I just gave up bidding. That seems a little greedy to me and they seem a little ruthless.. To me, they are like the people here in my town who, according to all of the shops I have checked with, came in and bought out all the charms available (and I live in a good sized city) and may be selling them on eBay for 4, 5, maybe more times what they purchased them at and leaving the rest of us without a chance to get some. My grandson wants some so bad for his backpack, but I won't pay these people that kind of money.

Sorry, I just had to vent. All I wanted was a few packs of trading cards wihtout having to hit the mall. I guess I will have to go to my favorite little gift shop to see if she has some.

Have a great day and thank all of you for letting me vent.

You're right, it does seem a little greedy......That's a shame. Hope you find your Series One.

Have you tried www.sweetbe.com? They have a lot of great WEBKINZ items. And they are fairly priced, safe to deal with, and very reliable.

I stopped going to Hallmark. the clerks at the one nearest to me were getting a little cranky when it came to Webkinz.

I found this great little gift shop that is carries Webkinz. The owner is so nice and loved to talk aobut them and gave me all kinds of information regarding Ganz. since she is local and not a big company, I decided to support her efforts instead of Hallmark's.

LOL-I decided I would keep bidding as much as I can on each auction so they don't get them too cheaply. they may still get them somehwat cheaply in comparison to what they might pay but not as cheaply as they hoped. It's freaky because on so many of the retireds (pets), up pops these people (it has to be some family or group because the names are exactly alike). I tell you what. No one buys that many for themselves. They are looking to resell them for big$$$$. like the $400. cheeky dog that is on eBay right now. I suppose it is good business but i won't be buying any of those on eBay in the future.
