Well, Daniel responded to me this morning.
At this point I'm not going to insult him by calling him a liar about the family - but I can't really give sympathy due to how much activity was spent - and I don't think the post office is more than a 20-30 minute trip you know?
I told him the only way I would cancel the dispute is if I got the items... Which to me seems fairly reasonable.
Anyway he said the stuff was packed and said he would have it out...
If that changes, he isn't trying to steal anything just took 9 times longer to ship than I would have liked. I will update when I do (or don't) get it.
Always buying vintage sports cards and high end memorabilia.
