    New selling tactic?

    Not sure if anyone posted this yet or not....

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/COMPLETELY-D...item1c30f6246e

    don't know why it's got bids or if it's shilled or not, but either way this one gave me a chuckle

    That's actually pretty funny to see, but it sounds like he did it to make a statement about the devaluation of even high-end product breaks.

    Clearly sending a message.

    My only issue is that they wrote in the description, "When extra nice cards come out of your favorite player or team, pay the person a decent price for the card so that person can continue to open product." Who's to say what a "decent" price is? Instead of telling me to pay more, maybe we should be leaning on the companies to lower prices.

    Yeah. I'd say his beef is with companies overproducing cards and overxharging for them, not with people being thrifty.

    Guy takes a shot at the USPS as well. Might be time for him to give up collecting cards and start building little ships in a bottle, or something. Enjoyment is no longer there.

    The only way jersey cards are gonna sell for $$$ ever again is if UD decides to insert them 1:120 or 1:160 and quits including guys like Trevor Daley and George Parros in the mix.

    How many people DON'T bust open new product anymore because of the ripped-off feeling after all the foil is sitting on the floor, knowing they can head off to eBay and find the one or two jersey cards they want for cheap, or justifying paying a little more (but still less than the price of a box) for Bobby Orr or RNH (hahahaaa he's worthless nowwww) or Mariooooooo because they figure their odds of actually pulling them from packs are impossible.......

    Tis capitalism at it's finest! Supply and demand! Save your money, DON'T bust the product, send a message, power to the people!!!!

    you do know that, that part is true right? I used to be able to ship a bubble mailer to Canada for $3.xx compared to now 8-9.xx for the same mail to the same place.
    Looking for:

    Yeah, I heard about it. It really sucks. I just thought it was funny how he said it.
