Default My Fault?

I just won a 2013 bowman platinum box for 75. It wasnt until after that i realized it was retail. Obviously if it got up to 75, i wasnt the only one. The seller should have had retail in the title right?

They should have. Although there have been some sellers that just put a photo of the box and let you think what you think.

You should know what you're bidding on before you bid.

It probably says "retail box" hidden in a 10 line paragraph in the description.

Yea your fault. It's not even like he used a stock photo. He took his own photo in which you can clearly see it says 8 packs, 32 total cards, 4 cards per pack.

Also, what case did you even open? I don't think theres an option of "I have no idea what I'm bidding on and now I don't want to pay for it."

It is your fault for bidding on it...but if the seller is angry over a blaster not getting them 70 bucks then they are being a bit silly in trying to force that issue (in cases of obvious mistakes in silly situations a harsh punishment would never be allowed or ruled in favor of ala Judge Judy would totally let the buyer off the hook on this one)...and besides, they have 14 day return policy....by canceling before they ship you're saving them a few bucks.

LOL! Not just a retail box, but retail BLASTER box! Over $10 a pack after shipping! Thanks for the laugh!

Absolutely your fault and liability. People like you blaming others for their mistakes are part of the reason that eBay has gone downhill.

Are the National Convention Autographs inserted in retail? That might be your technicality and be your "out." I have a retail pack in front of me and see nothing about them in the odds, and he can't show that card if it's not a possibility.

Buyer stupidity and rule changes have absolutely killed us sellers, but what can you do? eBay figures as long as they keep the buyers happy there will always be people willing to sell, and for the most part they are right.

wow, everybody is being real hard on this guy... i'd also like to add a lot of the people being hard on him have low feedback.

OP, you can return it if the buyer has a return policy. If it was an honest mistake shake it off, if the seller is being a problem and cursing at you, you'll win the claim anyway.

No, they are not.
