maybe the high bidder at this moment (Â£3,500) only placed a bid to be part of history, feeling quite safe with 9 days of bidding left, and with no intention of ever paying this much for the shirt.
how would he or she feel if nobody else topped that bid?
edit: dunno. looks like they’re serious. it’s a bidder with zero feedback, and five bids on this auction. typical ebay noob behaviour. good for the auction, of course.
