When you post looking for some pc and people ask you to check their bucket instead of just posting the card on the thread. A close second is the word mojo. WTF!!!! Is that crap about.

People who post in the B/S/T forum, "Looking for xxxxxx" but what they really mean is "Looking for xxxxxx for dirt cheap, well below ebay." Then bumping the thread up every single day. Just post your buying price from the start and save some time.

I forgot to mention the people that post they will take something in your FS thread and you PM paypal info....then crickets. Don't send payment, don't reply to PM's. Act like nothing ever happened. Drives me crazy.

People who try to imitate Chris while opening boxes on YouTube. Really pisses me off listening to people use his 836 catchphrases or anything else along those lines.

Just an annoyance from today: Only being offered 50% of your asking price. When you counter with something...ANYTHING more reasonable, they decline without counter offering something else.

Yeah, I've seen at least 3 videos where someone says "That'll Doozer" and it's not Chris

Anyone have this problem?
I think everyone has this problem. If there is a card you want $50 for and there is four sales over $60 but one with a $33 sale, they will always try and use that price. Never fails.

Too many people fail to understand that buying on here at a reasonable discount removes uncertainty with bidding on auctions.

I guess the mere possibility that you could be that bidder to find the outlier is too great for some.

# 1-When someone expects a card for cheaper the Ebay because thay are "saving you fees". How exactly are you saving me fees if I had no intention of listing the card on Ebay?

#2-When I am selling a very low numbered card and someones states they can get it cheaper on Ebay. Problem is there is not one for sale on Ebay, COMC,SCF, Sportslots or anywhere else on the internet, so how exactly can you get it for cheaper when there is not another copy for sale anywhere? Please explain this to someone.

#3-Collectors who feel they are entitled to your very low print run card for dirt cheap because they "supercollect" that player. So I should lose money because you have a man crush on Cam Newton? Yea, right.

#4-When you send extra freebies in a package to someone, and not cheap freebies, but nice cards and they dont even have the courtesy to say thank you. This has happened to me at least 50x on here. But stupid me keeps giving freebies so I guess its my own fault.

Good post.

I gave away a MJ jersey card and had to PM the guy just to make sure it got there. Dont understand why it's so hard to say thank you.

another one that gets me is leaving feedback, never had a complaint in a deal but please lmk either way, i don't like to hang onto hundreds of old dc slips just in case.

another is people that make 10 b/s/t threads for 10 different cards all in a matter of minutes, clean it up in one thread

I'm sure this was already posted in here somewhere...

But people that post "Must Sell - Emergency" type threads.

Whether they had a family emergency, car problem emergency, bill payment emergecy, overspent on eBay so they have to raise some cash emergency...

Then when I reply (and 99% of the time it's a card I don't really care about) they still want 95% of eBay selling prices.

I am NOT looking for some huge deal so I could flip something. It's more the principal of the thing. I'm offering to buy a card, that I usually don't even want, to help with your "emergency" and yet you still want to nickel and dime me over what eBay % you will give off.

It's a broad generalization I realize - but it amazes me how much people "need" money but want to bust your balls over all the items they want to sell so quickly.

This drives me crazy. There is no reason you should have 6 threads on the first page.

Quoting a post with 15 scans in it making the page a mile long.

If you have a raw card that usually sells for $10ish but one BGS 10 sold for $115 so you price yours at $100 and try to tell people its a good deal even though 9.5s sell for around $25.

Policing the boards only to find out their ebay account is filled with retractions and non pays....then denying it.


Users who swear up an down that someone with 50% of 2 bids is shilling.

Members who when you try to point out that 50%of 2 bids is not necessarily shilling start making smart ass coments about defending a shill without ever actually backing it up.

Users who post a thread saying "I need these 75 cards to complete my set" so when you dig through your cards and tell them you have 25 of them, and they never respond.

Sellers who mess up then come here and try to bash the buyer for their mistake.

Buyers who abuse the system.
