Their eBay ID is topdollar4autos or something like that.
I don't know how to feel about it ... they paid quickly and everything, so the deal was fine.
It just seems odd that they can buy other companies' cards on the secondary market without having any licensing whatsoever and sell other companies' cards for a profit.
I mean, I know they include their own cards, but seriously, why are people actually buying them? Because of the vintage A-Rods, Pucketts, Jeters, etc. ... not the unlicensed Sutton and Cepeda autos (no offense, those are good pulls, I just think they're not really the main draw.)

So it is their property to do with as they choose. The other card companies would not sell them the autos direct however, so they buy them on the Bay.
Licensing and such doesn't come into play because they didn't create the card, so they don't have to deal with licensing. To sell it, they just need to have legal ownership.
Nice cards, really cool that you pulled something from the Dmitri Young collection!
