I often big on Topps Patch cards with a theme, All-star, Finals, Superbowl, etc.
Topps puts out All-Star Jersey cards in their Update and highlights set. I don't know what the insertion rate is, but they seem to be plentiful. There are some color variations in the regular version, but again are not difficult to come buy.
Topps also produces the patch version. Usually Numbered to /10 or /25. The other day I came upon a CC Sabathia /10. These are very difficult pulls.
I won the thing for 3.25 plus 2.50 shipping. Not too shabby. I paid yesterday or the day before and then received a refund with the following note:
Name: Richie Schnyderite
Note from Seller: i am sorry my friend ripped the card on accident so it is in no condition to send or collect. Please dont be mad I am really sorry. He's an asshole.
What a dick. What does he mean "ripped the card"? I am not sure what he means is "I didn't get nearly as much as I wanted for this card and I am hoping this guy buys my lame ass story"
Can you send me a pic of the damaged card? I may want it anyway.
Needless to say I haven't received a response. I think peopel misunderstand Ebay. You put up an auction and the item sells for the ending price period. No game playing like shill bidding, canceling bids and ending the item just before it ends because you didnt get the price you want, or the shenanigans above.
So should I leave him negative feedback or no?
