Nate "Tiny" Archibald
I wrote to Mr. Archibald a couple of weeks ago c/o his NYC address. I went to my PO Box yesterday and saw a stack of mail. I didn't have a chance to open all of it but I did notice a return from him. I was horrified to see that I got the envelope back but it was opened and nothing was in it. I don't know how I should update the forum. Also I was thinking about filing a complaint with the post office but am wondering what good would it do.

Was it torn open or unsealed? I've gotten two returns from Archibald, both with my envelope unsealed.Hidden Content

That sucks. Are you going to resend?
Yeah, that's the thing with TTM. Even with a good signer, there's always a chance of losing your card. I try to remember that when I am tempted to send out a high $$$ card.

Sounds like he just forgot or neglected to seal the envelope and your card(s) or photo(s) fell out along the way. Not worth filing a complaint... that will get you nowhere. You just gotta suck it up and re-send.
First rule of TTM: Never send anything you're not willing to never see again.

Yeah, don't file a complaint. I've sent to him probably 4 times over the last couple years and the only time it was sealed was when I sent an envelope with a tear off strip on the back.______________________________
My collecting habits are continually changing. Right now focusing on ABA basketball and TTM autos. Always looking for lots of 70's basketball cards.

The proper way the PO is supposed to handle this is:
- Tape up / seal up the envelope.
- Stamp "Received by PO unsealed" on it.
How do I know? Because I just got a return like this. In the past though, I've received my share of unsealed, empty envelopes though.
