Okay, I stand corrected, apparently, there is someone dumb enough to buy 20-year-old barbecue sauce that will give you food poisoning if you try and eat it!

There's always someone dumb enough. Even the slightest exposure to #menswear should be all the proof you need to agree.

May well be a publicity stunt, the seller DID contact ESPN to tell them. If not, there is a good chance the buyer won't pay. I'm not usually the one to criticize, but that whole sale is dumb.

This one brought back (frightening) memories. I remember being terrified by these commercials.

Seems I'm not alone. From the Youtube comments.
Anyone else remember this creepy character?

Actually, I liked the song & Mac the Night... couldn't get it out of my head. Even remember the lyrics to that version better than Mac the Knife.

Pineider gray leather briefcase. BIN of $115. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pineider-Gray-Leather-Briefcase-/150926667959?ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1120#shId

Seller says it may be snakeskin, but it looks like pebbled leather to me. I haven't handled Pineider leather goods in quite a while, but they used to be very well made (and quite expensive). Not sure how I feel about the color, but if you like it, this is a great deal.

For the sake of $25? What was he / she thinking :/

Dunhill is a beauty. I had that in black. Made in France from what I can remember. Very high quality.

How do these sell with 47 bids and then get instantly re-listed by the same seller at a much higher price? There was no reserve? Did he just refuse to sell to the high bidder? Can you actually do that?

Ebay will not force a seller to follow through with a sale. As long as he doesn't try to keep the buyer's money, he's off the hook. REAL jerk way to do business, though.

That's dreadful. Sellers are always complaining how buyers have the advantage over them, but these seems to contradict that claim. When you press 'Buy It Now' or you bid, you are told that this is contractually binding. It should be the same at the other end.

sellers can always retract the item for whatever reasons...

He messaged me to say that he refused to sell to me at that price. I didn't know that he relisted...

He is in theory obliged to sell to you. Worth making a complaint to eBay - at the very least they will have to acknowledge your point. Maybe its true that eBay in practice don't back the buyer in these cases, nevertheless its bad form from the seller and should be reported.
