eBay Pirates at it again

Well, clearly one can never be too sure what item is going to dissappear next.  This time, there was a 1940’s Korkmaster Corkscrew online with an opening bid of 9.99.  There was a bid on it, and this morning, it is no longer for sale.  Nabbed by a corkscrew pirate, I am sure. 

Where will it end?  Is no one safe?  Are these rascals and scoundrels out to collect every corkscrew out there regardless of method?
