Default Pet Peeves on the BST Boards?

Mine? Only one really..."quick sales" that are anything but quick! I go in expecting to find nice cards at nice prices only to see ebay prices + OBO.

Quick Sales are WAAAAAY below ebay and that the buyer does not have to do any negotiating since the price is hard to pass up! If it's not that, then it's NOT a quick sale!

What others?

'customer' asks best price, then low balls you after

telling 'customers' there are no scans available

1. Low balling
2. Same cards in multiple threads
3. Bumping against the TOS
4. Bad grammar
5. People who PM you to trade based on your SALE thread

I could list more but I don't want to hurt feelings.

This bothers me none. You never know when the right person will be on and see your thread. As long as the rules are followed I really see no issue with people bumping a thread even though the card(s) never sell.

It's kinda funny, I've been thinking about this one a lot the last few days. I've probably been guilty of it myself at times, listing a lot that I think is a good price but might not be. But I've seen several quick-sale lots lately that made me ... best to just move on.

I use to jump on the quick sales. Not so much anymore. On Saturday there was about 5 going on at the same time. Every single one was over Ebay prices.

Not as major as some of the stuff that's been mentioned already but I hate it when people call regular pictures "scans".

Buying less on here. I can usually (not always) get better prices on ebay. Don't know what makes some of the guys here think they can get 50-100% over ebay.

I dislike the the use of the itrader. It seems that if you have a conversation with another member about a sale or trade, one of the parties will leave a negative for the sense of entitlement. No itrader should be left for anyone if the trade or purchase was not completed.

When a person is trading a card you really want/need, but are only looking for Harper or Trout in return.

Or when you send someone your Bucket Link and they immediately go through the sub albums to the "PC" Album and ask if it's available.

Have to agree with the "quicksale" threads. If you have to bump your quicksale thread, it ain't a quicksale.

This line should be sticky-ed to the top of the BST section.

I dislike buyers telling sellers the price of their cards.

If you want to pay $$ then offer it. If you dont like their price then move on and buy elsewhere.

Lowballers. I got three lowballs on my Randall Cobb Contenders and I finally sold it for $20. (Under eBay prices)

I'm offering a deal. Please don't waste my time with your ignorance.

How about having 7 different threads up at once...just put them all into one thread. A convenient way around bumping rules

THIS! Combined with the buyers/sellers who check eBay past sales and find the one card that ended at 3am much cheaper than it should have or that had a bidding war and ended much more expensive than it should have and tells you thats what the price should be.

I use eBay to formulate a fair price based on the avg sale price, not the highest (or lowest when making an offer). Bottom line is, there is a Beckett magazine that prices cards. No one sells or buys based on BV so price is open for interpretation. If you aren't happy with the price someone has a card listed at, keep moving. Please dont attack the thread!

I just hate guys that say "I have $xx available to spend for a lot" then give no information about what they looking for or want so people post a ton of stuff and the OP just says "pass".

Can't stand those threads

Those are awful

Thats a nice way for people with no stones to lowball. It's like lowballing, only now you get to sit back and wait for someone to give you the sweetest deal instead of doing the dirty work

I hate when I post 32 scans and a list at the top of cards I am looking for, and then without fail I get at least 2 people who ask

"Check me for this card".....thats in my list of wants.

Why would I take hours to scan hundreds of cards, but not 3 other ones I want?

HATE IT
