I received an order from Sportlots earlier this week, actually it came the same day that I received the cards from CommishBob.
I was kind of excited about this 94 card order and was looking forward to receiving them. I pulled from my mailbox a box of cards from Bob (just over 100 in total), shipped very well. And I also received this...
This is an 8.5 x 11 white envelope. No padding. It would be something that you would receive documents in from say, a legal firm. Not me. I received 94 cards, without benefit of a top loader or any kind of protection.
I paid $6 premium shipping for this. I get that people sell cards to make money, believe me I've been there myself.
I wouldn't do this to anyone. Never.
AMAZINGLY, these cards arrived unscathed.
About 30 cards apiece for each of the 78, 84 and 85 sets were knocked off the want list. Needless to say I have to find another seller though when I decide to knock another 100 or so cards off the list.
The moral of the story? If you're going to charge someone $6 to ship them an order, at least try to spend more than half of it on the actual shipping charges.
It's just good form.
Thanks for letting me bitch. Robert
