Update: He rejected my partially refund request of $3.12, but offered me $3. I took it. Thank you all for you help.

RE: OT: Ebay Problem (Update)
I haven't been on Beckett in months.. stopped buying boxes.. just a few singles here & there & mainly selling off some of my collection in order to get funds to buy the cards I still need for sets or my Lakers auto collection..

sorry to hear about your ebay problems..

for me, I been getting hit almost weekly with non-paying bidders... Ebay doesn't do anything to stop it.
I've blocked 22 people so far this year..

I think some people do it on purpose, because they know you can't leave negative feedback for a buyer.. & not too many people look at buyer's feedback..

I've grown tired of collecting cardboard. I've grown tired of trying to chase sets & have grown tired of selling & paying huge ebay/paypal fees.. especially when buyers want everything for 20% of what they are worth.. I was offered a $100 for a D.Rose AUTO/RC that was worth $600..

NEED: ELITE BLACK BOX LAKERS AUTOS (KAREEM/10 & BAYLOR/24)

So you lost your money, You've got a card that's worthless. He lied to you saying it wasn't chipped, and than he told you to suck a bag of dicks and you allowed him to still make money off you? You're a nice guy. Can you please bid on my ebay auctions? Wink

I don't think he made much money considering the shipping costs.

I wouldn't say the card is worthless. Maybe 25% cash value of BV now considering the bent corner is only on the back of the card.

I wanted half my money back on the card excluding shipping and I got 48%.

I obviously can't grade this card now, but I don't think I was going to anyways. Pretty sure it's only really worth grading a card if the sell value is increased by the grading costs + at least $1.

Ebay has killed the hobby. In the 90s collecting basketball cards was trendy when there were card shops everywhere.

Because of ebay the margins for card shops have become razor slim.

I also, think the card manufacturers are greedy when they charge $100+ for 1 pack.

I think the solution to all these problems is card shows. You get to see the cards in person and there are no fees besides the sellers paying a flat fee per table.
