I got a pair of Dye UL pants and a jersey for what ended up costing barely over $100 on markerbids.
Hard to say its a scam. If you aren't willing to commit on an item you can easily shell out $200 for bids on a marker and come out empty handed. You need to learn how the system works and how the regulars bid.
I can't rave enough about the exalt speed feed. It has been tried and tested, the fingers don't droop like most other speed feeds do after significant use, and it is nearly impossible for balls to fall out even when shaken upside down. You can't go wrong with the exalt.
