If you recall, I bought two cases of 2008-09 UD Masterpieces Hockey on Ebay for $650 each.
Figuring that DA Cardworld was not going to go through with the transaction, I received the following email this morning:
Jeff, the 2 cases that you purchased on ebay from us were listed incorrectly. They are supposed to be $950.00 and not $650.00
Unfortunately we can't honor the auctions. The listing program did this without our knowledge. Not only did Upper Deck contact us about selling the product too cheaply, we have had many dealers complain to us as well. It should be $64.00 a box or $896.00 a case.
I hope that you let us cancel both auctions with a mutual agreement email
If this is ok I would like to give you $100.00 further off of the following invoice that I quoted you on as compensation for our error -
The wrong thing to do his is make DA pay for an obvious mistake. I don't care if it was a computer or a person that put in the wrong amount, it was still an error. The right thing to do is let them out of the transaction.
What bothers me about this whole situation is if Upper Deck really did call and bitch them out. Minimum contract price is close to price fixing and I don't like it. I think its a shady way to prop up the price of a product. Much like the PS3, Wii, Televisions, designer shoes etc. Its a free market, or its supposed to be. The other dealers that complained can suck it too.
The upshot is, no cases for me. Meh. BTW, DA checked out my blog this morning before this email was sent. Quite a few times.
