At least the title got your attention. However, now the seller needs to work on getting you to bid, once they have your attention. laugh.gif

He needs to use spell check (and get someone to grammar check). Plus really needs to lower prices they are ridiculous. Oh and he really needs to avoid claiming his serial numbered cards are 1 of X. I know he is saying it is one of just 25 of that particular card design, but lit sounds like they are Number 1 of X.

I think many of these mistakes are people being used to texting and not taking their time to see what they typed. Obviously many people don't check their listings for errors before posting.

Honestly, I think this just might be a case of the seller being clueless. I know, that sounds harsh. But, I purchased an autographed Sammy Sosa card from him recently and it was shipped to me in a plain white envelope, no penny sleeve or anything. It was a miracle it was not damaged in transit.

My communications with him made me think I might not be dealing with an individual with a full set of skills here. While very polite, he couldn't spell to save his life and he seemed... well, as stated before, clueless.

I've mentioned it here before when I won a 1982 Cal Ripken Jr. RC (the 3 player one) for aprox. $12.00 delivered it arrived in a PWE granted it was only in one of those "cardsavers" the plastic sleeve thing that is like an ID badge holder, NOT a toploader and had no penny sleeve. I was also fortunate it wasn't damaged.

I've said it before those "saver" things are NOT good for shipping stuff in. They are OK for storing or showing off stuff in, but when shipping NO. Too many people (Ebay, sportlots) use only the cardsaver (w/no penny sleeve) and then TAPE the opening with regular tape, with no buffer between the card and the opening, not even a slip of paper to protect the card. I've had 2 or 3 cards damaged slightly by tape that way, fortunately not enough to be noticeable but it disturbs me. Each time I mentioned in the feedback "Watch the tape"

Yeah Clueless and sometimes clueless and just don't care.

Those plastic cardsavers and PWEs have become more popular due to postage increases and ebay charging final value fees on shipping charges. Of course some of this is just from some sellers just being cheap, but I think some sellers are just trying to cut costs. Bubble mailers are now $1.95 to mail versus $0.45 in a PWE, and even toploaders have gone up in price, I used to be able to get a 25 pack for $1, now you pay at least $2 if you can find them that cheap. I hate these new shipping practices, but I can see why some people do it.

True but I feel cheated when they charge me $3 for shipping and put it a PWE and slap a stamp on it even if they use a toploader as they still have less than a dollar invested in shipping with supplies even. But yeah those card savers are worthless, I just throw them away whenever I get any as they no use to me. Had a GU show up with a crease, it was in a toploader but was tossed into a PWE. Should have left them feedback, but didn't even want to deal with the hassle of paying my money to return something that was shipped stupidly and from a APO even. Folks that don't know cards shouldn't ship them (but that falls on me should have checked their feedback and found out they sold everything under the sun and very few cards).

Sammy Sosa - autograph - PWE = does not compute.

It's amazing that it was not damaged, especially given no sleeve at the very least. Was the price good, at least?

Edit: He does have some nice cards for sale, however.

They are "mont" because he put them in "sleaves" for protection. I had to check his location just to make sure he wasn't one of my "customers". laugh.gif
