    Please note that after an auction has been extended, each new bid sets a new auction end time.

    This particular auction is currently set to end at 9am ET on Thursday, 4/18/24.

    If someone bids after 9pm ET on Wednesday, 4/17/24, then the auction end time will be reset to 12 hours after the most recent bid. This is to prevent people from sniping the auction at the last second.

    So if someone bids at 9:01pm ET on Wednesday, 4/17/24, the new auction end time will be 9:01am ET Thursday, 4/18/24.

    Other auctions may have shorter extension windows, but in all of our auctions, last minute bids extend the deadline.
