In light of the title saying "how NOT to Take an eBAY picture", I nominate this auction here that does not have a picture in it yet they want you to shell out $12,900 or more. Surely, lack of a picture on a big money item would be worthy in this contest...

Very Clever, though the title isn't "How not to sell a $12,000 coin on Ebay", but I like where your head is at...

These are just so sad.
From now on, I think I'll sell coins with cell-phone shots.

Btw, why is the lettering on that little doll backwards?
