Did that with a CD from the 60s/70s that I thought was out of print. I bid
the guy up to 12 quid, then something made me look at HMV, and there it was
at 6.99, 24hr delivery. I ordered from there, and had the CD in my player
and spinning before the auction ended - final price nearly 20 quid. Taught
me a lesson.
