Does anyone know if there is a way to report this guy? He lied for the reason he cancelled the sale, he said the item was damaged. If I won did not pay I would get a NPB strike, there must be some penalty when the seller refuses to sell.

THAT is uncalled for...I would hit him with a NEG so fast it would make his head spin.....and buy the same card from someone else.

If it's a very obvious mistake on the seller's part, I think it's ok not to honor the price, because it should be obvious to the buyer it's a mistake. I admit I did it once -- I was careless and I listed a $1200 gold bar or coin for $120, just wasn't paying attention to the number of zeros. Someone instantly bought it, but I cancelled it.

I think there are a couple factors to consider. 1) Was it an obvious pricing mistake like Peter said 2) What's the dollar amount involved? $5 or $10 not really a big deal, just sell the card and move on. Several hundred dollars, that's a different story. 3) How long was the card listed? If it was bought 5 minutes after being listied, the seller didn't really have a chance to review his listings to make sure it was accurate. If its been listed for 3 days, they shad time to find the error. I know I review my listing once I upload them just to make sure everything shows as I intended.

People can't always make everything so black and white. Sometimes it's easy to see that there are grey areas.

Everyone needs to have and show integrity. If a seller lists something at the obviously wrong price, there is no reason why he would have to honor the price, because it was, in fact, a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. Integrity always has to run both ways. In this case, it would be up to the buyer to have integrity and accept the seller's explanation that the price was unintentionally wrong. (I am, of course, talking about a relatively wild discrepancy in price here, not an almost negligible difference in price or a case of the seller playing Monday morning quarterback.)

If, on the other hand, the seller knowingly lists an item at a certain price, but only later realizes he should have tried to get more for it, then it would be shame on him and he would have to show integrity and accept the final sale price.

The card was a PSA8 1968 OPC Bud Harrelson for $10, I knew I was getting an good deal but not ripping off the seller. The card was listed at least 2 full days before I pulled the trigger.

EBay is making me wait 7 days before I can leave negative feedback, which I will be doing.
