If I had a dollar for every second wasted reading this thread the last few days, I could have bought a Cobb postcard off ebay!

This is actually the only interesting post of this entire thread.

I read the first few posts on this thread when it first popped up. I thought it might be about some incredible (interesting) eBay find. When it wasn't either (incredible or interesting), I stopped reading it. However, I was curious tonight as to why it was still on the front page, so I opened it and went to the last page.

I saw this post, and realize I should have left well alone. Thanks for the info.

I did that too. Second biggest trouble I got into when I was little.

If you got paid a dollar a second to do anything you'd make more in a year than most do in a lifetime.

Love Jack Handey.

Of course if I had a nickel for every dollar I've ever earned I'd be way ahead of where I am now lol.

I think we all agree the OP went a tad too far in his conspiracy theories. And is upset at the wrong person (s).

However, he does have a point, which seems to be missed, is once a deal is agreed upon, it should be honored by both sides. if the original seller did not get enough for his card, well that's on him and the fake reason for not shipping the card was proven false when the card reappeared.

We've all screwed up at some point but at some point your word needs to be your bond

Pretty sure we're all in agreement on that point, don't feel it was missed. Maybe overshadowed, but not missed.
