Default Somebody Got A Deal !

Check out auction 140889877456

That price is for both. Originally the clueless seller had an auction with a starting bid of 49.99. At some point, (no doubt after an exchange of emails), she started a separate listing and offered the pair for buy it now at 100. She easily could have sold one racket for twice that, let alone the pair. She volunteered to be completely taken advantage of as she is not a tennis person and had no idea what she was selling. Sort of like someone who sells a priceless work of art for a pittance because they did not bother to research the piece's true worth. Essentially, she gifted the buyer at least 300 dollars, maybe more.

I hope the rackets went to someone who will actually play them and not one of the notorious flippers.
