You can't be serious!

Ok, so I stole a John McEnroe line, I figure it was appropriate given it is US Open time. Anyway, I was looking at e-bay this morning, when I came across this lot. No, why someone would actually list a common, used Israel stamp (Scott #82) for 99 cents is beyond me. Calling it rare and unique go a bit beyond exaggeration however. What really gets me is that someone actually bid on the stamp! I wish I knew who, I would offer them a bag full of them. These are the type of stamps that you see in those old packets of 100 stamps for $1, and even then it is overpriced. Maybe used stamps are hot all of a sudden, but I can't think of a reason why.
