If my purchases from him go as smoothly as the card you recently sold me here on BST I'll be thrilled. Thanks again for the great postcard.

Thanks! You'll be fine if you're not in a super rush to get something.

I've got some cool lower grade stuff from them over the last few years. I've only ever bought raw cards and they always come in a plain white envelope with cardboard and stamps. Never had a problem, but it means you can't track your purchase. The last one took two or three weeks. I was just about to ask if they had mailed it when it arrived.

Inspired by njdunkin1's post on "Honest, unbiased thoughts from a member, i.e. current boards situation". Doing my best to positively add to the board.

Sylvain Martineau is someone I have bought many inexpensive and expensive (for me, $5K - $10K) items from. I will continue to buy from him. Here are my Pro's and Con's.
Pro's:
- He does come up with some terrific items that are hard to find
- Be assured that (to my knowledge), he doesn't doctor anything, and all his stuff would be legitimate.
- He does the legwork by touring Quebec, and other parts of Canada, and does the "sitting in a hotel, and bring me your stuff" thing.
- If he posts it, he has the item in hand
- edited to add: He buys items in any condition, hence sells a lot of off grade stuff (I see this as a Pro, as people can sell everything to one source)

Con's:
- He does huge volumes, and does not always accurately describe his items (crease can sometimes be missed)
- He overgrades, but IMO has been getting more accurate
- English is not his first language, so he can sound a little abrupt
- He has been burned by buyers, and leans towards the customer is trying to put one over on him
- If you complain, he doesn't take it well.

He also has a second ID, International 2015-2016 (or something). I'm not sure what the breakdown is, but I have thought one might be for cards, and the other might be for memorabilia.

I may have missed some things, but feel free to PM me.

As for the whiny folks who complain about paying Canadian taxes, suck it up; you pay those same taxes when you go to the mall. He does enough business that you know it's a legitimate business.

Still runs true auctions--starts everything at $1.99 and lets it fly. I wish eBay would get back to that. Look at pictures as closely as possible, as quite often flaws are not mentioned in the description. Try and return items at your peril--he is intolerant of that and you will be blocked.

I buy from Sylvain from time-to-time and I always have positive experiences with him. He always answers my emails in a timely manner and is very polite. The thing is, 95% of the stuff he sells is hockey (cards, programs, calendars, pins, etc.) So if you collect other sports, then you probably won't find him that interesting. However, sometimes he does list vintage baseball cards, especially the hard-to-find Canadian issues like the 1936 World Wide Gum and 1937 O-Pee-Chee cards. He travels around Canada buying up collections, so sometimes he does get his hands on some of these rarities. The only problem is that he overgrades a lot of his cards, so make sure you examine the scans very carefully before making a purchase from him.

Nope. A little frothy for me at the moment. Didn't go any higher than I thought it would (maybe a touch lower) but the card was pretty expensive. Doesn't come up that often but was a PSA 3 at best. Had mixed feelings on it. And the mixed reports on the seller didn't make me any more interested.
