There is no way i would leave a pkg in the mail box; what if someone sees u and decides to steal it?

if you pay .25 for a bubble mailer, you're paying too much. Buy in bulk, you can get em for about .08 each...best way to do it

I see nothing wrong with that card . he shipped safely and even put in a top loader . What else do you want?


No really what was that dope thinking??? I can say atleast it wasn't a big dollar card. But really no reason for him send a card in a PWE.

Not everyone has a mailbox but its not like most of us don't live within 5 miles of a Post office! That is just uncalled for

You can drop it off in one of those big blue mailboxes.

Regardless, the seller had to send it out somehow, so getting the mail out isn't the issue. Shipping First Class goes the same route as standard postage.

NEVER should an item marked without free ship go PWE. Never should a jersey/thicker card go PWE. This guy deserves the neg.

This is appalling OP, terrible waste of a card and your money.

It happens far too much in this hobby.

The cost someone charges for shipping has nothing to do with anything, it's an attitude of someone being lazy and not giving a #@#@#@#@ about the other guy as long as he gets his money. NEG that idiot seller he deserves it

While I completely agree w/ OP and responses relative to the particular card (value and thickness) in question, the majority of our sales are sent in [thicker] PWEs. S/H is free on all auctions and to facilitate this, those items under $5 are sent this way (and clearly stated in auction).

2,413 items shipped in past 90 days - probably 80% sent in PWE - 0 issues relative to shipping method employed.

My 2 cents - I'll sit back and wait for the hate.

I do the same. I never want to receive anything in PWE.

I just received a $46 card in PWE. The card arrived with no issue. I cant ding the seller's DSR because he offered free shipping. But it is a $46 card, why would you not at least use DC to get yourself covered?

nah no hate lol life's too short for that Obviously I was over the top with my comment and its just my personal preference to send nothing in a PWE no matter if it's .99 cents or 999.00

I only do PWE if a trader requests it.

Bought and received this last week in a PWE...

A J Green Autographed Rookie Card from Topps Gameday Card GDA AG | eBay

When I opened my mailbox and saw the envelope and address (Hawaii) I couldn't believe it. He charged 1.99!!

He is asking to get ripped off by buyers.

put a target on my back. I use PWE's on sportlots for 1-4 cards, but do offer upgraded shipping and everything is spelled out right in my shipping instructions so there are no questions. it's impossible to sell cards at $0.18 and ship in a bubble and most people won't pay for such. I've only had 2 items lost (one I think was stolen) out of around 600 mailings, most being in a pwe.

I put the card(s) in a softsleeve and in a semi rigid. then wrap the receipt around the semi rigid and place in the pwe which are all stampped "Do not Bend"

it's all how you handle it.
