i don't know anything about ticket ollecting but 3 people believed it was worth £500+ so i assume it is a very difficult ticket to find.That said i wouldn't pay that price for a current cup final ticket with all the package trimmings but there are plenty of folk, with money to burn, who will.

If you ask me, not that anyone is, but it stinks of shill bidding.

Some numpty with nil feedback bidding £152 just once and then walking away with the winner on just 32 feedbacks, they hoped to rope some mug in and nearly did, I bet the underbidder gets a second chance.

Not an easy ticket for sure but not in that league, anyway see if it appears again??.

Wave

If you want to see some very scarce items that involve Manchester United Juniors from the 1950's, then a few turned up on ebay recently-now they were genuinely rare items for sure-see other post in the correct section.

Yes a mind boggling price for that ticket,as Leslie has said yes it is a tricky one to get hold of but is certainly not as rare as the price would suggest,what I will say is I have bought a few tickets off this seller on Ebay recently and have been the underbidder on others,as of yet I have yet to receive a second chance offer on any of them and have not seen the one's I didn't win relisted by the seller.

Ah but were they at this level?-I would doubt that perhaps.

There are plenty of sellers on ebay who some of the time don't cause waves but are also known to be outright thieves, keeping a sort of sensible profile in getting sales at low levels adds to their street cred.
I never even looked who the seller is or what their history may be, my comments were based on a few years experience in having to deal with assholes as well as in the greater majority of honest & decent folk, maybe I am way off base, but there are ingredients in the bidding for that item that give me cause for concern, anyway it is all conjecture so let's move on to more positive topics Wave

No to be fair that one was off the Richter scale compared to his other sales,he has been selling a collection of United tickets from the 60's to 90's including rare Euro aways some have touched three figures but nowhere near this amount!

How did this happen?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Manchester-United-Match-ticket-stub-1966-European-Cup-v-BENFICA-Q-F-1st-leg-/173830856233?nma=true&si=NC9HtePth5Tt37WJZ3cBtdRFPHQ%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557


Was there some some extra special VIP sat in this particular seat I wonder?




Strange this one because I had a feeling of deja vu (not sure what it means but it sounds right Very Happy ).

Just look at the bidding, take note of p***o (1405) and 4***3 (32)---(1405) makes bids of £299--£354--£400--£499 and £549.

Then, 4***3 comes in with the winning bid of £559.00.

These two Ebay ID's are both the same person---M J Betts of 5 Mount Pleasant Avenue, Exmouth EX8 4QD.

So what is the game? Simple reply--don't know.

By winning on ID 4***3 he will not pay---he has bid it up and will sit back with the knowledge Ebay will do nothing.

So why the feeling of 'here we go again'--just look at the EBAY WARNING!

Well that firmly puts the top hat on it then Roy, but what is the connection to the seller and buyer or is it the seller is just a basic [email protected]@t who likes to wind folk up with multi aliases, must have crossed your path for you to know who he is.

As for the seller all the tickets he has sold are common or garden, the only time he has obtained anything around the 3 figure mark is when he has been selling 10-15 of a season. Wave

Now I have got it. Smile

The seller is innocent and will be the victim of non-payment, the seller just wanted to sell it and listed it at a reasonable price----his hopes of a free fortnight in Tenerife (paid by the proceeds of this item) will be dashed. He will be chasing this guy for the next 2/3 weeks all to no avail and will wonder how Ebay has let him down.

What this is all about is two guys who hate each other and this one (4***3)(32) outbids the other one just to stop him winning it and then uses the Ebay system to get away with it. Not only that, he has been shafting people on Ebay for years and we must now realise that the Ebay system is there only for your fees and they will not police their own system because they (themselves) will not be paid.

A good job these guys are not bidding on Peter Bonetti photos because they will be the next to reach stupid levels (of high bidding) and who wants that?
Smile
