    The bids may exceed it, but it probably won't result in an actual payment.

    You think? There are some seriously monied hard core collectors out there. If it's worth 100k now what will it be worth in a year? It'll likely be a good investment too.

    The guy who has the other one just needs to buy this and burn it, then he's minted.

    That's the point though - can it be said to be worth that if nobody actually pays it? I read somewhere that the last rare game that was supposedly sold for about $100k on eBay didn't get paid for, and it was then sold instead for around the original starting point of $5k.

    Some people like to create accounts and place bids with no intention of paying because of the media coverage I guess. The worst that can happen is probably a strike for non-payment, which wouldn't really affect them if they set up the account for that purpose anyway.

    eBay is no good for this sort of thing due to nonpayments. This should be sold in a proper auction house; if it's worth anywhere near that sort of money those who it appeals to will still become involved (perhaps by proxy due to worldwide interest) but without the knuckle draggers.

    It could probably still work on eBay if the seller had the auction set to only allow pre-approved bidders.
