Can you say profit margin?!?!? :eek::eek:

Holy smokes, I don't get it as a typo either. There's $50 +/- USD retail there?

So 19.99 or even 99.99 don't make sense......

Only has to sell a few sets/month...:p

I've seen Ebay sellers do that before. It's a way of saving a space in their selling process. Not exactly sure why, or how it works, but I contacted one for something one time, and that's answer I got. They know nobody is going to purchase it at the ridicules price.

On eBay, if you have a sellers store, and you are out of something, you just increase the number of units, and then put a ridiculously high price on the item until it comes back in stock. That way, you don't have to create another auction or buy it now listing. eBay charges sellers about 5 cents per item for the listing, and you have to have a minimum number of items listed to keep your store. I vaguely remember it being a minimum of 50 items. If he only has 40 presently, these other 10 high priced items are "place keepers".

They’re just ahead of the 2020 price increase from Kubota.
