Wallet. Bid on this ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=011&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=320062175594&rd=1&rd=1 ) for someone, only to have them tell me they don't want it anymore ... and I managed to win it...

I don't really like printing plates (unless there's an auto on it), so I don't really have a use for it. I do like Daniel Gibson and $30 is cheap for any rookie 1/1, I guess, so I may end up keeping it. Still, if anyone is interested...

lol, don't want to call him an ***. I'd say there were probably circumstances (mainly money) that kept him from being able to buy it...

yeah that's a pretty shady thing to do :[

even if it's a money issue, i mean how hard can it be to come up with 26 bucks, honestly? the guy should fork up the money.

What a jerk. Have someone make you commit your dollars then they decide to break off the agreement AFTER the fact! They should have thought it out beforehand.

That's funny, he probably was the seller of the card, so he wanted you to bid on it. LMAO.

While I don't agree with what this guy did to you I must say to tradebark this, "Are you married or ever have life happen to you?" I am married and sometimes to keep the wife happy I must change my mind about buying things, it happens. As for life happening, you know it does.

Not trying to be confrontational.

I'm not married but I have had life happen to me, but apart from this rhetorical BS, NO self-respecting person will do this to another person.

you ask a favor of a guy... and make HIM lose money because of your circumstances??? An I-Owe-You would be justifiable but not straight up backing out.

And I stand by my belief that 26 dollars is chump change even for ANYONE in this hobby, especially in this day and age.

tb,
I can't agree with the chump change remark. What rhetorical BS are you talking about? PM me if you want to. Don't want to get nasty either.

I wouldn't do it. I would sell some of my Steelers or Schaub stuff before I would do that actually. btw I don't let go of my PC for anything.

I am saying that obviously there are ridiculous situations where one can go from wanting to buy a $30 basketball card to not wanting to because they literally have no money for it...

but that RARELY happens and I for one am inclined to think this is NOT one of those situations. That said, it's just rhetorical bs to say that "oh things happen"

If money is so tight in the first place, you don't ask other people to bid on something for you as a favor, especially without fronting the money.

If money is so tight in the first place, you don't collect basketball cards. This is a hobby where most packs cost upwards of $5 a piece, and as a general rule people buy much more than that in a given month.

..and really, how little would you have to respect a guy, to stick him with the bill on your food.. over $26 or $30 ?
