Arrow Got an email from the 1/1 Cardboard Crusader last night! LOL

Here is my listing, it is an ebay 1/1 Peyton Manning jersey# dual Sign of the Times Eli/Peyton Auto.

2004 SP Authentic Sign of The Times Dual Peyton Eli Manning RC Auto 18 50 1 1 | eBay

Here is the email I got from the 1/1 Cardboard Crusader:

Dear astronixcards,

This is not a 1/1 it is a 18/50 I will be contacting ebay about your listing.

- far-outdude


I thought that was pretty funny! Here is my reply:

Dear far-outdude,

Why? It's a 1/1 jersey number and there are buyers out there that collect these and marking it as a 1/1 helps them find them in a search engine.

I won't change the listing because it is what it is. Good luck contacting ebay about the 10 million other listings that are exactly the same way.

- astronixcards


I wish this dork good luck on his journey to rid the world of ebay 1/1's! LOL

You just replied that you are keyword spamming:

"marking it as a 1/1 helps them find them in a search engine"

Ebay's definition of keyword spamming:

"Keyword spamming is when people use words or details that have nothing to do with their items so that their listings will show up in search results."

Your cards is not 1/1 in any way (Edit: whoops typed too fast). You are keyword spamming.

To MANY buyers, including myself, a jersey number card is a 1/1 and gets a premium from collectors of these cards.

Should the Cardboard Crusader go after every seller that lists a card as RARE or a SHORT PRINT that is not? Where is the line on what is technically a SHORT PRINT?

+1. It's not a 1/1. You should list it as HIS JERSEY NUMBER! or something like that. I can't stand auctions that blast 1/1 everywhere when it clearly isn't. It's out of control now too.

BUT, for him to take the time to email all the sellers is just stupid IMO. I just look past all these stupid 1/1 auctions and get annoyed on the inside! (Well, at least until now while I'm ranting!!) Too many people try to save the world. This tool is clearly one of them!

When I search 1/1's on ebay, I am searching also for jersey number cards. It helps me find them. Since ebay restricts your characters in your listing saying JERSEY would also bring up every frickin patch card ever made!

I don't see why people get upset about this honestly, but obviously this is a touchy issue for some.

It's less that's it's such an issue- more it's the rules. And it's the rule for a reason.

I agree that it is annoying and it is keyword spamming. However take the time to message you seems laughable to me. I choose not to sweat the small stuff. If it puts more $$ on your family's table then who am I to care

I don't see listing a jersey number card as a 1/1 is against the rules, I use the search key to find jersey cards or cards that are unique, not just serial numbered 1/1's. d@mn! Is everyone in cards a hall monitor?

I see ebay rules as being similiar to rules of grammar, they constantly change due to usage. If people keep saying ain't does it eventually become a word? LOL

For the same reason you should not list then as Coach, calvin Klein, Gucci and everything else it is NOT.

thanks for playing.

Remember if people don't see it your way THEY have the problem. Not YOU

Don't think its keyword spamming. Its pointing out it is an ebay 1/1 jersey card. How come every dealer at a show points out that 1/.., last/last, jersey number cards are ebay 1/1's?

Because BUYERS LOOK FOR THEM IN SEARCH ENGINES WITH THE KEYWORD 1/1!

I hate it when I have jersey number 1/1's pop up in my saved searches. I'm only interested in cards stamped 1/1.
