    That, and the fact that there are stats there that weren't valued until the idea of Money Ball type metrics started to take hold. Before Money Ball walks were garbage. It was all avg, RBI, HR, Hits.

    I have a ton of stuff, but this one stands out. Passed down from my grandfather who got it first hand at a country club.

    It took 8 years but I finally got my first negative feedback on ebay. All because I put a buyer on my block list lol. He didn't take it well.

    Just realized buyers can't get negative feedback lol. Had a dude buy a will grier auto and never paid after a month. Went to go give feedback and thats not a thing you can do.

    Yeah, buyers have all the power unfortunately. As a seller, there isn't really anything you can do other than open a case, get your final value fee credit, and re-list it. And also put that person on the block list. I think my list is like 75-80 people long.

    You can always leave a positive feedback for them but in all caps write something like "DEADBEAT BUYER. DIDN'T PAY"

    That is exactly what I did. I know why EBay caters to the buyer, but not being able to given them negative feedback is a joke

    Update: He gave me a 2nd negative, but I contacted ebay and they agreed that it is my right to block someone if I want to so they took off both negatives. #blessed

    I hadn't opened a box of anything since some 2019 Topps baseball a couple months back so I decided to get 2 Prizm Basketball FOTL boxes, because I hate myself. Basketball stuff is feast or famine and today was a famine. Highlights (read: lowlights):

    Blue Shimmer /7: Jonas Valanciunas, Eric Bledsoe. John Stockton Auto and Larry Bird Gold Prizm /10. Other auto's were Jacob Evans, Dzana Musa and a god damn 250 points card.

    Reminds him of his childhood. He's also trying to buy up every available card of a few players to control the market.

    You need that property to open up your card shop so you can buy cases for all of us.
