Default USPS This is not good. Mailday

I just had someone come over to my house and ring the doorbell and hand me 3 bubble mailers of mine Ebay wins. The minor problem is that this isn't my neighbor> The gentleman said he lives 4 miles north of me... anyways I appreciate the jester because the mailers he gave me had the following

2006 Bowman Chrome Mat Gamel Blue Ref Paid $55 for
6 card lot of Contenders Autos Baseball ($20)AND

my 12 Jake Odorizzi Razor Metal Gold Auto's /26 that I paid $200+.(I don't know why weren't these shipped UPS)

I thought some stuff was getting to me a bit slower than usual even though I moved here a month ago

Was he wearing a colorful hat with bells?

Good thing for you he was considerate enough to do that for you. Thats a good amount of money to lose out on if they didn't find their way to you.

I'd have a huge chat with the postmaster and make sure that guy left with a cold one or a few bucks for his effort!

What sucks about that is if the guy doesn't bring them to you (the DC shows DLVD) you are out the cards & money. Nice job by the USPS!!!

Default Nice to see...

I am a big believer in people generally doing the right thing. Lucky for you he brought them by. Kudos to him.

I've gotten a bunch of blue and golds from Razor, all in big bubble envelopes, USPS left in my mailbox, no sig needed. It is a gamble on Razor's part.

Best Always,
Vinny

Vinny- the first few times I ordered in bulk - they were shipped UPS. No Sig required.

The Odorizzi's I won (all 12-for about $200+ paid) I was shocked they were not sent UPS.. that's dangerous for that price but I guess if they are only charging $2.99 per order it saves tham a few bucks so they dont lose money on shipping.
