From time to time when browsing various forums and posts, I will see some signature from some members that state some information about shipping using a Plain White Envelope (PWE ). Some of the verbiage states “If you ship in a PWE, I will return the card” or “If you use a PWE, I will not trade with you”.
In general, shipping using a PWE is frowned upon, but not against the rules. Specifically, on sportscardforum.com, the only item that mentions something about shipping comes with a 5 point infraction. This infraction states that “Bad packaging/shipping causing More >

Another year, another release of Artifacts from Upper Deck. Not even the strict constraint to produce “only” 11 sets this year could stop the folks at Sea Otter Place from producing Artifacts again. This year, a hobby box of Artifacts includes 10 packs of 4 cards each and should yield 3 memorabilia cards, 2 rookies and 1 rookie redemption card as well as 1 autographed card and 1 rare parallel card.

On January 2, 2011, I was fortunate enough to purchase a 2009-10 tin of The Cup Hockey. I still do not know what made me thinking about or even why I decided to purchase this tin, but I am thankful that I listened to that voice. The 2nd to last card of the tin was a Matt Duchene Gold Auto Rookie Patch parallel numbered to 9!
