Lets put it this way. If they are selling me a card labeled as NM and either trimmed, authentic or with wrinkles, paper loss etc they will be getting whatever cards back. And if that is the case that they can’t figure a 4 from and 8 then they should not be in business and when I am done will likely not.

I will not be screwing around. There is plenty of proof for a credit card company on this board from the auctioneer themselves. And they know that. If I did not give them the benefit of the doubt I would not have bid. So I am. Everyone gets a fair shot.

They will either get praise by me or I will be a very bad person they could have sold a sh*t card to. Lets see.

I placed a bid on one card...minimum bid on the raw T206 Chief Bender. The original thread hadn't really gotten rolling at that point. I was outbid the next day and didn't attempt to bid on it again for two reasons. First of all I had a price in my head I was willing to pay for that card in that condition. Factoring in commission and shipping the bid that topped mine pushed past my price point. Secondly...as the the thread plowed ahead I began to have second thoughts about the auction. Like many others I'll be watching to see how this plays out. If people are generally satisfied with what they receive I wouldn't rule out bidding in future auctions.

I think it remains to be seen if any of the high bidders are ‘winners’

I totally disagree. Good luck "making" Candiman take your cards back if you feel that they weren't as described. Also good luck getting the credit card company to issue you a refund if the cards are actually sent to you.

I hope I am wrong (for the people who decided to take a chance bidding), but I think that there is a 50/50 chance that there will be a lot of unhappy people when this is all said and done.

I will say this is the only auction house with no voicemail and straight to a cell phone voicemail.

Interesting business model, hopefully, they're not operating out of the trunk of their car.

Interesting that many here believe that they had better be on the up and up or they'll never make it. Explain Coach's Corner to me. Explain to me how they've been in business for decades now. The only thing the Battles did here that is any different from their ebay model is they cut out ebay and paypal. Good luck getting satisfaction.
