"Random Stuffing Ingredients"
or "How I became a Pirate", (hockey collecting)

Okay, so this is worth an entry...

Post up an offer to buy cards at a site, note that anyone who wants to needs to include a list and asking price, get the usual minimal replies. One guys says he has 100+ of what I need, but that I will have to look at a few pics in his bucket.

Insert "should just skip it and save my time" here...

Okay I figure, might find something I can use. So I look at the pics, not singles of course, but 9 cards to a scan, so that some I can't even make out. But I find a few in the mix that I don't have so I express interest...

Insert "should've known better" here...

Get a reply that "he just wants to move the whole lot and is not going to take the time to list 100+ inserts". No price for the lot, no indication of how many of other players is in said lot.

Insert "No Sale" here.

Seriously, to make a sale some people won't even take the time to tell me what exactly they are selling?! huh.gif

Again today...

"I'm selling cards"

"Okay, do you have any of these cards? If not, what other cards do you have available?"

"No, I don't any of those. I have a little bit everything"


Yeah, thanks, real nice selling effort there. Care to elaborate with say some descriptive terms, since you only have a 'little bit'? Just give you some money and be happy with what I get huh? Has it gotten this bad?
