And with the proven success (and great popularity) of the Approval Books, isn't it amazing that some sellers continue to list hundreds of nickel and dime stamps as individual auction offerings? And when they do not sell, they relist them over and over! Wouldn't it make more sense to take those low cost stamps, set up a few approval books, and let folk have the opportunity to purchase them for months instead of a few days?

Amen to that, Bobby! Gosh I don't know how those folks have the time to list all those nickel and dime lots that you mention. Each one needs a scan and a listing. Whew! What a ton of work! The approvals are so much easier to do.

Bingo, Bobby! Puts all the stamps in one place for buyers to see, no time constraints, more buyers. Perfect! In the long run, even saves sellers time overall without the need to relist. Just pack and ship what sells.

re: Approval book number 3000!!!

Ahhh, but some sellers have the sneaking suspicion that one day when we least expect it there will be a robust bidding frenzy driving the bidding on one of those nickel and dime stamps up and up toward the three digit range.
Oh, the thrill of it all, watching the numbers slowly and then with increasing excitement broaching the $1.oo mark, and then bid by bid topping $5.00 and only after a brief pause while fevered bidders stop to feed the reindeer, closer and closer as that magical $10.oo begins to seem possible. Oh the humanity !
Get your camera ready for the screen shot, call slumbering neighbors, even if they live in Australia where it is already tomorrow. Some years from now this great day shall ne'er go by, from this day to the ending of the world, but we in it shall be remembered- when bids were thrown like archers arrows and gentlemen now-a-bed, shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks of, .... wait, the wait the bidding's stopped. Never mind.
But it was fun.

Auctions - Approvals
re: Approval book number 3000!!!

Actually on another site that did happen. There was a buyer who bought almost every stamp I had in my penny auction. Drove people crazy. One woman took great offense to this and for 3 weeks in a row, drove every penny auction which never had a cv of more than say $1.50 to $6-7. Took her 3 weeks to get him to stop winning every auction. He then became just a regular bidder giving others a chance. Penny auctions are a lot of fun to find material for. You truly never know though what a stamp will bring at auction if more than one person truly wants it, even those that start at a penny.

re: Approval book number 3000!!!

That's a tricky game to play. She was lucky that the other bidder didn't start dumping all those stamps on her by not bidding when he thought she had driven it up far enough.

re: Approval book number 3000!!!

Tricky indeed but she had watched his bidding habits and saw that he was probably putting in $10 a stamp as his bid. I lost him as a bidder for almost a year. He came back but is now very sporadic in his bidding. The woman who bid him up never ever purchased anything from me, even after he stopped bidding for a while. He was probably bidding on lots from multiple dealers, and it was someone else that she really wanted to buy from
