Didn't think so. No big deal.

Actually, I think you can, under very specific circumstances.

As a general rule, you can’t retract or cancel a bid. When you place a bid, you agree to pay for the item if you’re the winning bidder.

However, honest mistakes sometimes occur. You can retract a bid if you have a valid reason for doing so as defined by eBay policy and you retract the bid within the required time period.

Valid reasons for retracting a bid include:

* You accidentally entered the wrong bid amount due to a typographical error.
* The item’s description changed significantly after you entered your last bid.
* You can’t reach the seller by telephone or email.

Changing your mind is not a valid reason for retracting a bid. Before bidding, be sure to carefully review the listing.

If you need to retract a bid, review the conditions for retracting a bid. If you meet the conditions and understand the results of doing so, fill out a Bid Retraction form. To retract a best offer, use the Best Offer Cancellation form.

It's only $5 bid, and no one else has bid. It's a bunch of Chiefs cards. Lots of DTs. I looked a little closer, saw that I have everyone of them, and decided I didn't want them, but I don't think anyone else is going to bid.

you can cancel your bid if its not within 12 hours, just go to help and type cancel bids, should be something about bid retraction form, type in the item number and click explanation (most people use, entered wrong amount)

Hope that helps

That's cool. I guess I'm getting some more Chiefs cards. Duplicates unfortunately.

Just fill out the form and select "wrong amount". I'm pretty sure they don't just adjust your bid....they'll just cancel it and assume that you will bid on it again.

It can't hurt to try.

It's 13 mins away. No biggie. I'll take the cards.

I'd contact the seller and tell him your situation.

Or, if you end up winning, turn right back around and sell them.

EDIT: Nevermind. Saw that you have 13 minutes to go.

Book price is $8.

A quick search showed people selling for between $2.50 and $6.

Huh. You would think it would be worth more.
