Picked up a Michael Cuddyer game jersey card for my PC for pretty cheap. Free shipping, so I knew it would show up PWE. But inside the PWE was a piece of card stock paper wrapped around a top loader, which was cut down the sides to accommodate the thicker card. The problem lied in the fact that the card was able to slide from the penny sleeve and with the sides of the top loader gone, there was no support at all for the card.
The result? A sizable crease on the front and back of the card. I've emailed the seller, but given the note enclosed with the card said "feedback will be left when same received," I'm guessing it's not going to be a fun process getting my money back. In fact, after I pay shipping, I'll only get about $2 back.
Keep it and leave neutral or negative feedback? Send it back and put the $2 toward one that's more expensive but in better shape? Not sure, but I've finally been bit by the PWE and now appreciate those that know what they're doing when shipping that way. Just frustrating.

any seller who sends in a pwe is just setting themselves up for an "item not delivered" claim. and they will lose every single time
You know what a card sent in a PWE is called? A FREEBIE
