You are bidding on for one Military Costume Set as pictured and not the Captain America Costume!
Unfortunately they don’t seem to have done there homework as a $999.99 opening bid on what is essentially a military background uniform….well….its not happening. BUT somehow the item already has 668 page views….
I just don’t get ebay sometimes.
