more often than not, UPS finds their mis-delivered packages. I hope that's all it is

I don't ... but geez, if you're expecting an $800 package, and it shows up "delivered" but you don't have it, wouldn't you look EVERYWHERE before filing a claim? I know I would.

I live on dead end street and UPS routinely leaves my packages on neighbors door step. Since they have home business they get tons of packages almost daily. The most stressful time was when they delivered 2 cases of 2011 Bowman Sterling Football, 2 cases of 2011 Topps Five Star and 7 boxes of Leaf Rookie Retro. All told almost $7500 left with my neighbor. Needless to say I was having stroke after stroke until the next day neighbor brought everything over to me. UPS left $7500 in product with neighbor and then neighbor dropped the $7500 on my door step next day. This is just playing with fire...if UPS driver feels safe leaving then he will. Since my neighbor gets so many packages my lazy driver assumes everything goes to them. When I complained the solution was either all packages need to be picked up at hub or he would try and be more careful. I have caught him in process of dropping my stuff at neighbors and then he sees me and checks name...you really need to be careful. I follow the tracking and wait like a lonely puppy at window for rumble of brown truck. If I was crooked I could have said I never received it because it was delivered to wrong address and then neighbor just dumped on my porch. I could have easily got over on $7500 but I am 43 with 3 kids and stopped drinking and doing dumb #@#@#@#@ long ago. I guarantee not everyone would be so honest in this situation...

Man that would piss me off. I now have a box at a UPS store so I don't have to deal with that. I live in an apartment complex and the drivers are supposed to leave packages at the office if were not home. I would come home and have a package sitting on my doorstep. Drove me nuts!

I signed up for that UPS Choice ($40 a year) but "worth it". I don't have to worry about not being home for packages etc, them being left out or me receiving them late or the next day. I have everything delivered to a UPS Store near my work and I can get the cases/boxes at 9 AM the morning they are to be delivered until late in the day or whenever I can schedule to be home, etc.

As for shipping- I will think twice about using UPS in the future- who knows in this case- I hate to assume the guy was being deceitful but you almost have to assume that given that he "found" the case right after the investigation started. Maybe not- just glad its resolved.

Thanks everyone for your comments and advice- it was a very stressful situation.

I am glad this worked out for you but seriously the only thing you need to do differently (and it's a BIG thing) is require adult signature on items over $250.00. It's that simple - no need to "never use UPS again." Just ALWAYS require a signature from USPS on items over $250 and an adult signature from UPS for items over $250.00.

If you didn't read the whole way through I thought sig confirmation "was included/had been purchased". I will definitely doublecheck for now on!! I always purchase over $250 for USPS sometimes depending on the item when the value is less.

Thanks for the tip though- I know at first I didn't know how important it was to do so.

My issue is this though- Why would have I been responsible if the case was "lost" even if I hadn't purchased sig confirmation? The case had delivery confirmation and was insured. Am I not protected at all? There was proof I dropped the case off and it was shipped.

Like I said before- I purchased a $10 card on ebay the other week that was delivered supposedly (DC no sig). I contacted the post office, etc and my only option is to contact the police. The seller has no liability due to having DC.

The only difference between the two cases is the value of the products.

The guy sent me a message then that the case started out very poorly... I was like oh great now what. I replied saying I had opened two of the 5 cases (sold one to him two to another guy) and the one case was very poor- Matt Moore base auto and Middlebrooks atomic were best cards; other case was pretty good.

Just got another message saying it ended up 'not too bad'

Not too bad! I wish I would have opened this case instead of the others!!

He pulled a

Cespedes Blue and Black Auto
Darvish Blue Auto
Harper auto redemption!!

At least he should be happy and not cause problems. I guess the lesson is always open every box and case!


I had pre-ordered one case of Finest but ended up selling it (for a profit) when I didn't like the look of the product. The guy who bought the case was one of the nicest people I've ever dealt with on ebay and the case was putrid. Wish he could have got the good case instead.

I work part time at UPS. I tell them whenever I have a package coming and to hold it for me in the morning and I can go in and pick it up whenever after 8am. It's so nice having that special hook up. I also know about every driver so even if I don't do that they know where I live and where to leave my packages.

lmao UPS will put Sh*t in the dumbest places. Had a package left and the usual sticky saying package left by "side" door. I look and look no luck. Like you said it hadn't been 24 hours yet so nothing you can do. But I know when our UPS guy comes thru same time every evening. So next evening I get my chair and I sit at the foot of my driveway with a cold one and waited. Flagged him down and tell him whats going on he goes yeah its over there under the carport by the side door. I'm like come on man. So he walks over opens up the lid to my grill and there it is. In the grill!! So you know I can't totally fault the buyer on this one it probably was somewhere weird.

Also if we are going to post video of stupid deliveries how can we not have the last christmas fed ex video of the tv/computer monitor going over the 10 foot fence? I'll go find it.
