I don't know if it is nefarious or not, but there has been a huge change (anecdotally, at least) with Greg Morris. I used to buy a ton of cards from them - commons, semi-stars and what not, nothing of huge value - to take advantage of their all inclusive shipping. But in the last year or two, they suddenly started getting a huge amount of activity from bidders, with virtually all of their listings receiving bids almost immediately from the get-go. (I know, I know, there are many reasons why that could happen.) And their cards always seem to sell for a big premium now over the same exact cards from other sellers. When I'm looking for something these days, if I see a GM auction, I am very liable to just pass it by. Again, not claiming anything unsavory is happening, but in the end I know I'm going to have to pay a heckuva lot more for their stuff than I 'should.' Make of it what you will.

I noticed that as well when I sell raw. They have inferior copies of the same card sell for more. Like PWCC, I just chalked it up as maybe they had a bigger following than me. Now, after reading these, I am not so sure....

Nothing but positives from me. I have a huge bid percentage with them with zero retractions. When I was working on my 63 set I bought a ton from him. Why pay $3 plus $3.50 shipping one at a time from 10 different sellers when can buy for $4 even $5 for 10 cards with $3 total shipping. This is a huge factor with them and Im sure many set builders agree. Also they are very accurate with their grades (IMO). One time my buddy bought a card that was misgrsded due to a pencil trace they missed. They simply refunded the purchase and told him to keep the card. If I buy from 10 different sellers Im usually disappointed in a couple cards that have an issue that I wasnt aware of. Usually I just eat it as its a hassle to return items under $20.

I know Greg personally and have dealt with him dozens and dozens of times. One of the genuinely nicest and most honest people I've met in the hobby. And I've met plenty of terrible people, some of whom even congregate at popular vintage forums we all love.

He's a fantastic guy, grades strictly, and runs a great business.

I think they sell items they own. Not aware of them doing consignments, but maybe that has changed. I have had nothing but good experiences with them, but I haven't bought from them in a while.

One of, if not the biggest consignors of raw cards on Ebay. Getting ready to send a lot of 500+ cards right now. Never used them before so we'll see how it goes. Josh called me and talked me thru the process, fees, etc. Very pleasant and helpful.

ah, well then their items are likely getting shilled. Hopefully they're booting bid retractors.
