Sheesh, check this auction out:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultrfine-ISO-125-B-W-8x10-Film-Out-of-date-but-stored-in-freezer-/161212128512?ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:US:3160
$366 for 100 sheets of fp4 which expired +/- 10 years ago. I shoot all sorts of expired film but this wasn't worth it. Just look at the expired velvia listings. $20+/sheet
For $440 would have bought 100 sheets of fresh fp4 delivered to your door.

I wondered about that myself. The same bidder won most of those auctions from that seller.
Actually, you can buy 8x10 Delta 100 for only 20 cents more a sheet from some places.

Ebay prices can be funny. I've picked up a lot of 8x10 film in the last year for around $2 a sheet.

That doesn't make sense, we can still buy it retail OE for far less.

Must be shill sales to influence the market.

Perhaps the buyer(s) live somewhere stores, Freestyle, etc., won't ship?

Money laundering.
