View Full Version : Feedback on Steve Verkman Cards

Posted By: <b>warshawlaw&nbsp; </b><p>I just had an experience with Steve Verkman that I thought would be of interest. I ordered three T cards that were graded ex-mt, ex-mt and ex-mt+. They came last week. One "ex-mt" card had a big crease and was missing about 10% of the paper on the back, the other had three creases. The "ex-mt+" card had well rounded corners. <BR><BR>I sent the cards back demanding a full refund of the purchase price and shipping. I got a prompt refund with a note of apology. <BR><BR>I guess that makes me like the guy with one foot on fire and one in a block of ice: neutral. The cards were grossly overgraded but the return was handled in a professional and courteous manner and cost me only the $0.57 cents return postage. <BR><BR>Anyone got an ex-mt T218 collection for sale . . . ?

Posted By: <b>Obaks</b><p>... a lot of people who get burned from Verkman will just swallow and take their lumps and not return the cards or think that it is too much time and trouble, etc. You did the right thing by returning the cards. I think that they will continue to be sold in the overgraded condition, however, and that the next unsuspecting buyer may not be as fortunate. Verkman and his Clean Sweep Auction consistently place near the bottom of the VBCC dealer and auction feedback surveys. My own personal experience involved being lied to about 5 or 6 years ago in a case similiar to yours and although I eventually got my money back, never ordered from him again although I had previously spent several thousands of dollars on his cards.

Posted By: <b>warshawlaw</b><p>Actually, I've bought unslabbed cards from him twice before and both times the cards have been graded right on the money. And we're not talking easy stuff, either. That's why I bought these cards sight unseen. <BR><BR>Ya gotta send em back if they're bad. Otherwise, the bastards in the Hobby win. Now, sometimes, you offend the "Lord Voldemorts" of the Hobby when you return their overgraded crap and they ban you from their future transactions, but who needs them anyway?
