I think this is bang on.
I'm not going to be mad at those who do case breaks etc and bank... that's their good luck I spose but it has made the hobby less fun for us who collect just because.
I also miss card shops... Yes I was into the whole scene back in the early/mid 90's.
We just swapped...
Wow that's insane, yeah thankfully this was just a Thon and nothing that can't be replaced. I have a /199 already so it would have been a duplicate but it's just the whole issue when you don't get things delivered to you directly. So many variables. I wouldn't bother claiming against the seller...
Ok so I messaged the seller and Steel City. Seller replies...long story short..they used a stock photo (which was not advised in the listing) as a result Steel City do not have my stolen/lost/fingered/fisted/moneyshotted card.
I now have messaged Steel City and advised them that this is not my...
Bought a Thon Maker UD 5x7 #'d 108/199
Was supposedly delivered to @MMB on Xmas Eve, still hadn't been processed which I only checked a few weeks back. Emailed Ben at MMB and long story short "they didn't receive it" now the exact 108/199 card/5x7 is for sale on eBay by steel City Collectibles...
The screw down was the "pool room" of cards.
Only the best went into them!!
I remember a Jordan fleer RC going around the card shops in Perth that must have been in an inch and a half thick screwdown. Was like a paving brick!! LA Gear, Sporting Card Enterprises and Al's were our main shops in...
It's like the whole Jordan v Kobe v LeBron thing,
People will back one guy til they are blue in the face. Having watched all 3 for years if I had a guy to lead and make the most impact...prime MJ without a doubt. Taking nothing away from Kobe or LeBron as they are very worthy of being mentioned...
I think we as spectators are quick to judge and create over hyping ourselves. Some do it to pump up cards some just like to create debate or ruffle feathers. Whatever the reasons they are opinions we are all entitled to. Personally, I'd like to see Simmons do well. He has serious potential and I...
Hahaha life was so much simpler in the old days.
3 ring binder and sleeves for the ok cards. 4 or 9 page Ultra Pro books or snap tights for the better cards and a screwdown for the raddest of the rad.
Yeah I was a 90's collector...hahahha
Funnily top loaders were not much of a thing.
Yeah if it doesn't say 1 of 1, it's not a 1 of 1.
Congrats on those two pictured 1 of 1's though.
I don't get those black box 1/1's but hey for all intensive purposes it's a 1/1.
Through my hoarding I have made a few cards the only one that may come available to the market but only I know that...
Yup these are awesome. I also like the skybox Emotion and the EX range too.
Showing my age hahaha.
More than design...I appreciated the action shots from this era. I liked Noir 1st series as far as new base cards go. Simple but elegant
Don't like the white borders since
I collected in the early to mid 90's..
Zo, Ewing and Kemp. I dabbled and always flipped Jordans to get cards of the 3 guys I collected. Had fun with it til about 1996 and then completely stopped collecting.
Wind forward to 2013...the NBL ...the Perth Wildcats... We picked up a guy called James...
Thon Maker went UFC..that dude who rabbit punched him must have touched cloth when Thon went back at him.
Farcical but the only part that was completely out of control was that dude getting mobbed on the ground. Everything else was 50/50 blame wise IMO
Ok so mmb never bothered sending me a pic so i received my latest mailday today and thankfully the Jordans were there.
No clue what happened in between but I have them now. Will pop them in the fs section sometime as I sold my Jordan PC.
Thanks for the messages guys
So today...this happens
And for those who wish to play at home..
Throw this into USPS tracking:
What the actual fk has happened here??
I have requested a pic of the contents expecting the worst. Will update with more.
Keep in mind nearly 2 months after...
Wow that sucks Coopz, yeah that's a sick card and a lot of money to lose. Fortunately mine were nothing like that. It was supposed to be a clutch of 10 Jordan cards: slick silver, emotion ntense etc.
I have a slick silver already but this one looked really clear.
Anyway yes I am proof that...
I filled out the IC3 added all the numbers they wanted, attached it all in the link they sent me on Friday night my time just now I get an email stating they closed the case and they didn't receive my documents.
Their incompetence is inexplicable.
Livid is an understatement.
Yeah I actually went through ebay. Useless!!
All may not be lost I have to fill out some IC3 FBI form to get my money back through some money back guarantee as a once off. Dunno how or if that's gonna work but that's what ebay say I have to do.
Case closed in sellers favour.... unfknbelievable
Out $150 US for a slice of fresh air and windy pie.
Why? Because ebay don't care he said he posted the cards (that still didn't come) a week after they were supposedly already delivered but because USPS shows delivered 14th Feb. When I...
