He could have also asked for the cards to be placed inside the bubble mailer, instead of taped to the outside of it. Because who knows.

Point is, there is a "generally-accepted method" prescribed for mailing out these types of cards, and the method was not used. The real problem is that this method, while "generally accepted", is still quite subjective as evidenced by the discussion here.

Because secure shipping is the default.

BTW, did I hear correctly that they are releasing all of the new episodes to Netflix on the same day?

I think people have become accustomed to a high standard here from all the awesome hosts we have on bo. The bar has been raised by blowout and blowout plus other guys like cardsinfinity and aic etc.

Still, if your cards arrive safely, then ok. If not, contact boomo He seems to be handling customers fairly.

That is what I heard. All 10-13 episodes at once. Bridging the gap between thesseries and an upcoming movie. I am stoked!

Looks like you make money over charging on shipping and sending in PWEs:

CHARGED $2 TO SHIP A CARD IN A SMALL PWE WITH 1 STAMP, TOP RATED HOW? Buyer: bronxbomber2003 ( 1608) Mar-21-12 07:54

Reply by teambrinkz (Mar-21-12 08:27):
The Auction Was Started At 1 Cent. The Price For The Card Was Above/Beyond Fair
2011 Bowman Tyler Bortnick Tampa Bay Rays Orange Parallel #'d 15/250 Prospect (#260973178817) US $0.71

*******************************************

So if I understand this correctly...this feedback left for you stated you charged $2 to ship a card in a PWE with 1 stamp. Your response was that you essentially did that because the auction didn't go high enough?

It's all starting to make sense now. You're defending the same type of service you give others.
