Wait, what?

Pulled up my eBay watch list just now, and saw that the auction for the Baldwin 243 I mentioned the other day is over. "Item is no longer for sale."

Obviously, I'm no eBay expert, and I wasn't bidding, but something isn't right here. There was at least one bid on the piano, and it still had like five days to go. But the de-listed item now shows zero bids.

Can sellers just pull auctions like that? Or do people do back room deals in instances like these, to avoid paying eBay fees?

Sellers can end auctions early, tho there are only certain circumstances that allow it. It's been a while since I read all the ebay selling rules, but I know it can be done.
