Don't act the fool, by credible I mean looking at several completed
auctions including reading the descriptions and shipping terms and applying
a little common sense. If I am really curious I go so far as to check on
the bidders and seller feedback rating and prior transactions. Lots of good
information is available for those who really look.

BTW I said most credible, so whats your alternative to ebay as a price
