Without being able to see full details of the bidder, I would suspect its either a shill bidder or someone just pissing about - especially on the drive. I've been "victim" of bidders who unregister after pushing an auction to silly limits.

Unfortunately ebay removed ability to track shill bidding which i guess they don't care about as the more an item sells for the more money they make

It's a bit odd, if what I'm seeing is correct then both bidders involved have very high feedback ratings (1000+).

So it may well become available again then, it does seem astronmically high. It should be possible to cancel a bid "entered the wrong amount" but then best not get involved of the high bidders ultimately pulls out and doesn't pay up.

Anyone want a box for a mouse, bargain at 15 quid
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F332801422904

Thanks for the pointer! I'll snap this one up. It's getting harder by the day to find totally useless empty boxes from retro mice. I thought I'd never find one again! :D

Bryce.

I'm afraid I've been hoarding them for quite a while, driving the prices up...

Way too cheap. Can't be an original, probably an pirate copy.  >:(
