The card was untracked and posted in Australia. I don't know who delivers it when it reaches the US. I used the USPS online form to prove delivery and deter a potential scammer by using the article ID number.
This may be of interest to anyone thinking of shipping untracked to the US through ebay.
An ebay buyer in the US (soccerstarplus) claimed not to have received mail after two and half weeks and opened a case against me on ebay so I followed it up with Auspost. Ebay allowed the case to be opened...
I paid for a shipment Thursday morning and got a message Monday night saying the carrier does not deliver packages above a certain value, would I like to lower the value or choose a different carrier. When I replied I got this message.

It doesn't stop the pre sales though, one seller on ebay in particular who sells large quantities and often sets the prices low soon after release. Surely Select know this?
The previews are a bit of an anticlimax with the release much the same again assuming the last reveal will be a platinum...
The late reveal of these "rare" red die cuts could well mean they are the numbered replacement for the black starburst. With there being so many of them in the parallel set, would the numbering be much lower compared to the black starburst? If there are roughly 3 times as many diecuts vs black...

Strike Force replaces A-Graders (54 card set?)
??? replaces black starburst
Predictors the same?
I shipped a package yesterday after waiting since Friday for consolidation. I'm not sure if it was because of the size/weight but the epacket option was almost double the price compared to last time from US$15 up to near $30. I decided to pay an extra $10-$15 to go with DHL. I've asked for...
I find the pricing pretty good, US$1 per package plus US$15 epacket delivery. I've also added the maximum US$400 insurance (for epacket) on each of my deliveries so far which costs another US$6. The packages have been worth more so it's weighing up cost vs risk.
Just had a bad experience bidding with this US seller on ebay. The card was Pele 2014 auto 429 or best offer.
I bid 330 for the card, he countered 369. Increased bid to 350 he countered 390. Then I met his initial price of 369 and he countered 395 after 2 days saying this was his lowest then...
