Default Not again! This is why I have a problem with PWCC!! Sorry for the rant!

Not really a problem, per se, but it definitely makes me want to approach things differently!!!

I try my best to run .99 cent auctions to eek out some fun in this hobby. I most definitely can not afford to lose $350-$400 per card every time I sell a card on Ebay. When I sell my '6' for $730 and PWCC sells their '7' for $2158. Well, maybe I should just cave in quit trying to sell these cards for .99 cents myself. Obviously buyers only care about PWCC, as evident by their bidders 70% acitivity with them......Anyway, sorry for the rant....just my frustration with this fine hobby....

I hear you, but they do get attention.

The problem that I would have if I listed with them is that their auctions have a zillion cards and I fear mine would get lost...but I'm almost out of the hobby anyways so if I lose a few bucks so be it, I know I've made it up over the years.

I hear you on that. I used to consign with them in the past. My discouragement came when I would consign some high grade PSA 9's. One was a rare, non sports issue where the pop report at the time was 1 of 5. In BOTH instances, my '9' was not the only '9' for sale by that at the same time, in the same auction. That had them both listed side by side (and of course, mine sells for less than the other '9'....in both cards). Just doesn't make them seem so special when they have multiples of the same card going at the same time.

The ironic thing...the winning bidder will probably consign with PWCC for their next auction where the card will bring $1,500!

A "7" of that card actually sold for for $2,398 at Clean Sweep in 2013. The only other listing of a "7" on VCP sold for $1,171 at Memory Lane earlier this year. That does seem to be a huge disparity in prices for that grade, but the PWCC price is actually less than the card has sold for in the past at that grade.

The only auction for a "6" since 2012 that VCP is showing is a sale for $1,020 at Heritage earlier this year. Yes, your card did go for a few hundred dollars less than the previous sale of a "6" earlier this year.

You are complaining that PWCC gets higher prices than you get for comparable cards at different grades and also that you get lower grades when you submit/consign to PWCC than they get for other similarly graded cards. You're going to have to limit your complaint to one of the two situations before I can give you some sympathy, can't have things both ways maybe you're dually unluckly.

Maybe I'm not dually unlucky? Maybe the luck is coexistent with each other and it was just one luck?

One grade difference on the right card can bring a big price differential at times. However ridiculous. Not telling you anything you don’t already know.

I remember that thread, I never saw that you posted resolution for that. Maybe people thought it was your stolen card? I wouldn't bid on a card I thought was stolen, but if I thought it was stolen, I would have notified you when I saw it. Did anyone alert you of it listed on e-bay?
