Default "We Care" - USPS - My surprise yesterday...

It was around a hundred dollar baseball card and super scarce..The heart break was much more about losing the card than any monies (the seller and I are chatting, no need to discuss it too much here)...I blacked out contact info to protect the innocent .

Maybe it would have been better to just have put a stamp on the card and sent it as a postcard.

Sorry for your bad luck.

When using the manilla folders instead of bubble mailers you have to tape the the top and bottom. The bottom seal will easily come undone in those sorting machines i.e. just like seen in the scans. Sorry for your loss Leon.

USPS needs to go away and just let the private sector run the show.

Perhaps the mail-man knows what you get in your bubble wraps now and thought it would be nice to take a souvenir for himself. That really sucks.

That sucks. My last We Care package looked like it had been run over by a truck several times and was soaked in hydraulic fluid but because the seller always super packages his stuff the card was ok.

I guess we see how well our stamping of USPS items as "Fragile" and "Do Not Bend" work?
