Good eye! At first, I was a bit shocked. I've had good experiences with that seller on eBay and their pricing has always been very fair.
If we don't study the mistakes of the future, we're bound to repeat them for the first time.

I messaged him on eBay, I was told he was "in the hospital and will fix it if he survives." All of his listings had a one added to the beginning..

I saw this one this evening. Wow, you would really want to have this patch pretty bad for this price. Nuts.

I think when I got this patch last year it was a few dollars. This guy wants over $100 for a MORALE PATCH.

From what I know with this ridiculous prices is, if dealers run out of stock, they just set their prices up in the sky so nobody will buy so they don´t have to pay ebay fees for deleting and reposting that item again once it´s back in stock.

See his feedback, he sold patches for $5.95
