    What a beaut. I’m not going to buy a lot of s2. I’ll buy one of the Witt SP’s when prices drop.

    I'll always appreciate the 87 topps design. It was the year I was born so my dad got me a complete set of it when I was a kid at a garage sale (missing the Bonds card) and a couple boxes to pull the Bonds to complete the set

    The stock for Bowman megas is apparently getting low on Target so if your want any more is the time to get some.

    Megas have been absolute shit. Think I’ve opened six and only hit one numbered and one prospect auto.

    Hangar packs with tags or nothing at all at this point.

    So my target has had them but how do I spot the security tag? They feel the same and I can’t see a difference.

    Feel the back side of the pack. If there’s a bump/security tag on the back card, get the pack.

    Gotcha, I didn’t feel any of those, the ones I was looking for are the flat ones that look like a circuit board. I'll have to give them a check next time I’m there. This was the first time I’ve scored retail in over a year.

    I'll try. I went to Target maybe two weeks ago and they didn't have shit. My Walmart had Bowman blasters a few weeks back but that was it. The target hasn't really started sticking anything other than lower end stuff and still has the signs posted about suspending sports cards purchases.

    Yep, the best mine had was Bowman fat packs and UFC Prizm packs. The only blasters we’re Donruss football and Bowman University and you could still only buy 5 items at a time.

    I went by my Target and it was loaded with everything but sports cards. They had about a 2 foot section at the end of the shelves for some hockey.

    They also had a sign saying you can only purchase two items at a time.

    Was it on eBay? If so, you're well past the number of days to cancel the order for no payment with no penalty to you.

    Just cancel the order, he’s not paying. My guess is regretted the purchase, was hoping to buy cheap and flip it, or found a cheaper option. He’s just waiting for you to cancel the order so it doesn’t reflect badly on him.

    Yeah, he isn't paying. Cancel that order with the reason "Buyer hasn't paid" and you won't be assessed any fees. Don't let that get past 30 days because I believe you forfeit your Final Value Fee and the transaction won't disappear from your 'Awaiting Payment' page for quite some time.

    You're able to cancel anything after 3 days now. I usually give people 7 days to pay if they let me know they intend to pay. Also, make sure you add that person's name to your block list.

    Is there any punishment against people canceling auctions? I’ve bid on a few cards this week and two have been canceled and another one the item was re-listed. I can’t even leave negative feedback.

    Did you win the auctions? If so, I would report those to ebay. That's illegal and unethical to cancel because they didn't like the price it sold for. If they do their job correctly (highly unlikely), that seller will be punished and perhaps have their selling privileges revoked.

    Is there even a way to know when the drops happen (other than obv being selected for it)? I signed up for both the Prizm ones this week.
