I recently started purchasing from Greg Morris, and I have to say I am pleased. My first purchase was a $900-$1000 ungraded card for a set that I'd been searching for a few years. Naturally I was leery, but the great scan and recognized name nudged me into making the bid. What I really prefer is the grading accuracy. I've bought a few others along the way, and I feel with GM, I don't have to scrutinize the scan.

The other thing I really like is they put the grade into the title. This really helps if I am looking for cards for my set in a certain minimum condition, I can check out the appropriate ones right away, and not waste time opening listings that I am not even considering.

All these (especially accurate grading) will bring me back.
I agree with everything you say. Someone on here told me in 2016-17 about GM cards and I have been a customer ever since.
I just checked and seen I am at 91% bid activity with GM cards. Well above the 85% Dan noted that threw up a flag for him.

To date, I have never had a bad transaction nor been ticked with their grading.
I know they have a big following, and there is a reason for that!

To My Dearest Dan McKee,

Having gone through your post history, it seems that your three favorite things in life are:

1. Pre-war baseball cards
2. Drinking too much
3. Ranting, raving, and making unfounded accusations towards third party auction houses because you drank too much the night before

I place very sparse bids on eBay and go through periods of time where I will have not made a purchase for several months. Later, I place hundreds of bids trying to complete a set or pursue items when I have the funds to spend. During different, intense bidding periods this has resulted in 100% activity with sellers such as Greg Morris and PWCC auctions because I was seeking items they had in their auction all while having no bid activity elsewhere.

Does this make me a shill?

I'll let you in on a little secret... No...

Just because you live life through a keyhole and cannot use your imagination as to why a completely likely circumstance is likely, without nefarious means says a lot about your character and who you are as a human.

A wise man once said, "We do not ever rid ourselves of our demons, we simply learn to live above them." Perhaps you should take a step back and assume better of the world before making crazy accusations against honest sellers. Perhaps it is you who commits these very acts through other auctions because it is within your peripheral. Those who assume the negative are themselves the negative.

I for one am planning to avoid your eBay, anything you have for sale on this website, and hope to never deal with you in the future.

Michael and anyone else,
I have known Danny for over 25 years. We have done business together and we have drank together (sometimes too much). He is not a bad guy at all. There was just some things that threw up a flag for him and he aired it here, which is well within his right. As I told him privately, and I will reiterate it here, if anyone sees anything or has any issues with anything with regards to Greg Morris Cards, please contact me. We are not perfect and we make mistakes from time to time, but what I can assure you is that we will rectify our errors and do our best to make it right. We run an honest business and we don't want problems for any of our buyers.

We have started taking consignments and have had great success for virtually all of them (sorry Ted if you didn't feel you got the money you were hoping for). We typically get great money for higher grade raw sets, by breaking them down and selling them card by card. I'm happy to discuss this, or anything else with any of you, who might be interested in giving us a try.

Thanks
Josh Wulkan

For someone who wants to shine a light on positivity you’re last paragraph certainly contradicts that fuzzy feeling. You completely missed the mark with your long winded charter reference of Dan. He is a solid drinker and a straight shooter. Nothing wrong with sharing strong opinions.

I have had nothing but positive dealings with Greg Morris. The cards are fairly graded and shipped quickly.
As for the prices realized by Greg Morris, I say good for them. I set a max price that I am willing to bid and if the cards sell for more I just wait for the my next chance. JMO

I felt the cards did what they should have, I was just hoping if have some of the nut jobs bidding them up. Namely the 1***2 and t***.

Probably just chasing those high end cards with Hope's they grade 9s
