it was the first one listed, so there's a good chance that people set their auction sniper for the final hour and didn't think about it until it was already over. why else would people bid $200 when there are clearly buy-it-now copies available for $50-75 cheaper?

I gotta say..I got a bit of a beat up print so I know how this went down..

Could be a sniper, but it was bid up from $100 to $200 in $5 increments, seems like either a newbie or shill bidding to me.

newbies scare me as much as snipers and shills. They blindly chew their way up to your high bid one slow painful bite at a time. i prefer the quick outbid any day of the week.

BTW...not to rub salt in the wounds or anything, but my Neurot prints arrived in mint condition. I got #'s 224 & 226. if someone here got one of the same #'d blue flame prints, I would trade a lower number blue (<100) for it and pay all shipping charges.

well i know for a fact that seller has a second user id, he sent me a nasty message from it, was pretty funny. He was probably shill bidding, why have two ebay user ids and a private auction running?

He seemed pretty open and we had a pretty lengthy exchange about shipping with tubes and packing prints, I guess he took it to heart.
