Now because I did what I was suppose to, instead of filing a item not recieved... I am out the purchase price and the return shipping.

Then I open a mailer today expecting to add an MJ card to a set and then realize I have recieved the Jumbo version..NOT THE CARD I PURCHASED ONCE AGAIN!!! (different seller)

I also have been contemplating a break from the hobby..then I read this thread. It reminded me about how a member here Toddapp79 or something collected piston cards and when we traded he sent me some great thunder extras as well....one of them being this card.

It is #'d 4/5 and is possibly the best Nick Collison card that you can get in a Thunder Uni. I am a huge Collison fan and I have even had a Collison 1/1 logo card and didn't enjoy as much as I have this Collison. I love the cards in the Thunder Unis...I have given too much for 2nd and 3rd year cards of Thunder players because of that being the uniform that they were pictured in and this card is still my favorite and the crazy thing is that it was free!

I even purchased a RC Patch of a Piston to send to toddapp after I recieved this and sent it to him as appreciation...ONCE AGAIN Toddapp THANKS..and thanks you nick for posting this thread. It is refreshing to hear the good news that there are great sellers and traders still in this hobby.

Sort of discouraging huh man? Right after this thread went up a couple days later I received yet again another damaged card. I am not expecting mint cards but when you get a card that has a dent all the way through the card, on both sides and you can see on the edge that is unacceptable. I just have been buying graded cards that way I know for sure what I am getting.

That said, awesomeness in every way! Makes me consider even tossing in extras to the unknowns when I occasionally sell something on the 'bay. Great stuff!

Thanks man! Ya, the Slick Silver cards are a tough grade. When I received this card for free, I had doubles. I looked at the copy I had and it wasnt mint so I am keeping the card this seller sent me. Worked out pretty good!
