All of the current badge auctions have at least 1 bid already, with many having multiple bids. Looks like there are some folk who want to go and do not yet have badges. I wonder how many rounds of auctions they will post this go round.

I remember some of the initial ones that were auctioned went in the 1000s, but then as they kept having more auctions the going prices did get lower.

The way I remember it, at first the badges sold for the most.  Thousands of dollars.  Then when people realized there were more than just those early batches, the prices dropped.  During the lull in middle the prices were low.  Lower than face value.  That can't happen this time since they've basically made the starting price face value.  With the end in sight, the prices went back up.  But still only a fraction of what they sold for at the start.

The big change this year from previous years is the number of badges available at the same time.  It was more of a dribble before.  This time, comparatively, they've dropped many more at once.

I think it will be a bit messy tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday. A lot of these auctions end one minute apart and a couple of them end at the same time. Then on Tuesday the badges go up late at night and sales run after midnight (central time). Then on Wednesday the sales are late afternoon/early evening. Either someone was thinking about this and trying to spread out buying opportunities to reduce buying lulls, or it's just the usual random happenstance.  ;)

That's only 7pm in Hawaii.  :)  People that are interested in comic-con live all over the world.  I think it's great they are spacing out auctions so that people elsewhere can be awake for them to end.  As with any ebay auction, it's bidding in that last minute that counts.

It's about time.  I don't know why they were only doing them in pairs.  I remember last time people had to try to find someone to partner with to buy a pair of tickets.

That is really good news for those who have posted that they only need 1 badge.  Yay.

Yeesh! That ONE badge went for $1,725 (with 73 bids). You could get a pair for the same price. Wonder if the bidders realized this.

As of this writing, there is a pair going for $1,250 (50 minutes left) and about 5 single badges going for between $500-$730 (5 hours left).

Yikes! Yeah I wonder if the bidders knew if this for one person and not two. If they thought it was for two people, it will be quite the surprise.
