SonOfDolf, I think putting your highest bid in at the last minute is the best bet, but putting a higher value than you think it is worth never makes sense. I would question whether the book is worth more than 300-325. It isn't rare and has a non-valuable signature. If you look at all the other bidders except you and the winner, they maxed out at 250. You thought 300 was the probable selling price, but chose to exceed that heavily in your max bid. I don't understand your bidding behaviour as - had you won - you would have overpaid.
