    Shipping Boxes US to Canada (TIPS?)

    Because of all the hype of Crosby/Ovechkin, I've decided to dabble once more into hockey cards (boxes). I've pre-ordered 2 boxes of the UD series 2 from a seller (EBay) in the US. Now, Ive looked up another Ebay seller "Dave and Adams's Card World" and they have a bunch of hockey boxes (95/96, 96/97, 97/98) for about $15-$20 per. If I were to pick up $140.00 worth (6-7 boxes), what should I expect to pay in taxes and duty? Would it still be worth it? Any Canadians here have any experience with duties/taxes and/or Dave and Adam's?

    US's regular postal service also get taxed when it enters Canada. Those private carrier companies will tax the stuff 100% of the time though. I would say about 80% of the stuff sent via regular postal service get taxed when it enters canada. Most of the time, its still cheaper to buy from the States after all the taxing...

    I ordered 10 boxes. With shipping it came to $212 US. The girl I spoke to said that she could put a value of $75.00 on it (Inventory Clearance). Let's see what happens! Shipping via USPS.
