For all who don't already know (and I'm sure I don't have all the details as I just learned of this a few months ago) there is a collective effort by a group of people to essentially shill bid every mid-high end Trae Young card that is auctioned on ebay. That may sound like an exaggeration, but based on what I've seen, I truly believe these guys successfully shill at least 75% of all Trae Young ebay auctions that are at least a few hundred dollars, and apparently it's been going on for around a year at this point.
Shill bidding on ebay is obviously nothing new, but I don't think I've ever seen anything like this where it is essentially impossible to sell a very popular player's card on auction if it's over a certain price point. I'm honestly curious how auction-only consignment companies handle this, because I've seen multiple Trae autos re-listed 7-8 different times with an obvious shill bidder winning each auction.
This isn't some simple solution where you just block the accounts or set a buyer non-payment strike requirement, these guys clearly have dozens if not hundreds of accounts created with the sole purpose of shill bidding trae young cards. It legitimately makes it almost impossible to properly comp any of his mid-high end cards and just in general throws the entire market out of whack. I've seen plenty of people mention this on here before but don't think there's ever been a dedicated thread to it so I thought I'd make one and see what you guys think.
