yesterday, i realized when scanning my whole bichette collection, that i was missing a card (2012 Bowman Chrome Bichette Orange Ref /25, which was supposed to be a last minute addition to the sub added it right before i left my house for The Philly Show, i forgot to list in the OP, but i definitely listed it in the beckett sub sheet)

I went back and counted all the cards that were scanned into PhotoBucket, twice, and instead of getting back 273, we got back 272. I knew i paid for and the Beckett sales rep counted 273 cards out at the Beckett Booth.

needless to say, i called beckett this morning while on break @ work and asked if they had the card and if they could locate it. CS rep said something to the effect that we don't have a record of that card in our system, however, we had one card unaccounted for that was not sent out because it was not listed on our manifest.

it was a 2011 Bowman Chrome Mike Trout Refractor #175 BGS 9.5 SLAB # 7463102

i know i only had one listed on the sub sheet, JFray's. and looking at the post-grading sub list, it has to be JFray's card, it matches his slab's serial number run and it makes complete sense that way.

i can only assume, but can't verify this because i am still at work, that when i was adding my cards to the group submission box, instead of sending the orange bichette, i sent a trout refractor i got from the last group break of chrome. so the BGS 9 he has (matches my serial # run, kinda) is really mine and the BGS 9.5 must be his.

i'm still missing my orange bichette though, as it was not in the box it should have been last night.

the trout 9.5 should be delivered to me soon, and i'll have it out to Jfray ASAP.

I went to the PO office and picked up the package. iTrader has been left.

That sucks about the missing card. I do not know what I can do but if you need anything let me know....

Fall behind a desk? In the car? Hopefully you did not drop it at the show....

Do you recall the serial #? Scour eBay for it...

Anything bichette gets listed on eBay and the send me an alert.

I looked all over yesterday, behind, under, everywhere near the desk I use to ship. I have to go through my card boxes tonight if the fiance' lets me!

It's not that big of a deal, because I paid $15 for it, but it was the best centered one I could find.

but it was sent as a gift. i don't see why you would get dinged.

that's like me sending my g-mom a x-mas gift and her having to pay taxes on the value it is insured for.

does Canada do that?

They changed that rule about 10 yrs ago with a blurb due to NAFTA reasons. Believe me if I sent you a package with a value of like $10,000 and insured, you would get a call from Customs in the US. If that product is "Made in the USA" and available in your country, they would charge you duties as well. Most of the time US customs lets it go. Reason being, for a NON US sender to insure it costs a ton. I cant value a package at $5k and not insure it for $5k. $5k in insurance would cost me like $55. So most people shipping into the US dont bother. Atleast I dont.

So if the product is made in the "USA" its taxable whether it is a gift or not. They feel that gift gets used much too often to bypass the tariffs.

I can open up a case about not paying duties on items I already owned by challenging the payment contending that I sent them to be appraised and not purchased. But then I would have to prove that I bought them prior with reciepts and garbage. The last time I did that, I had to wait like a year for payment. They make you pay now and if you win the contention, they refund you. Damn losers!

We'll see when it gets here!

alright! good to hear, thanks for being patient and sending the other card back. R3dm4n paid up and his cards were shipped monday.

so that pretty much wraps up this installment of our BGS group sub.

look to the testing waters sometime next week for the signups on the next go-round.

thanks everyone! good luck with your sales or PC's!
