Ron, I never said you were a problem with paying but with the rash of instances lately (some with members who I've never had a problem before) I never know what to expect. I'm sorry it happened and I'll try my best to not let it happen again.

You should name names. Other sellers have a right to know. As Ben mentioned, there seems to be a lot of bad things with board members lately regarding the BST, and I think other board members have a right to know who these people are so that we can avoid doing business with them.

Money talks most of the time. It's a $10 ball, just move on....
Members should PM me about other members poor BST behavior. While backing out of "a" deal with no one harmed won't be a major issue, doing it multiple times will get them kicked off the BST. But if I never know then nothing can be done. Members who PM me stay private. This all being said, more times than not, there is more than 1 side to a story. But please PM me when someone doesn't follow through and eventually that person won't be here anymore *(if it happens often or more than once in a short period).....

Ron, again I apologize. PM me and you can have any $10 ball I have listed free of charge (shipping also on me). Just let me know your shipping info and what ball you want and hopefully I can make this situation a bit more palatable. As far as putting names out there I am not going to do that because there is no harm done. I just ask that if someone wants something and commits, please follow through and I will do the same.
Hopefully this all will put this issue to rest.

right, money talks. I probably give a little more time if its a $10 item. If i got a guy saying hell take a card for $9500 and i have a backup offer, i not going to wait around with just an 'ill take it' if i dont know have a 'pay by' date...

i would want to know when getting paid by on a high dollar item..

I will not name names or call anyone out as I just move on (not like some, apparently). This is not the only time this has happened, it happens more than I would like. I really can't believe someone started a thread to bitch about a $10 purchase.
Thank you for the explanation, it is always good to hear both sides.

Tony is pretty stand up with things.

A few years ago I had purchased a handful of signed 8x10's from him that the PO got wet when delivered. It ruined about 4 of the photos. No questions were asked and he apologized and gave me a discount towards a future purchase or gave me a partial refund(don't remember which one). Not something he had to do.

Tony,
I understand your predicament and can understand your frustration for poor buyers. I have been fortunate and not had anyone back out or disappear after committing, but I sell a lot less than you do.


I think a good way to prevent this is for both buyers and sellers alike to be clear on terms. If a buyers says I'll take and can't pay right away, they should tell the seller when they will with the understanding that if payment isn't made by then, the item is up for grabs. On the flip side, if a seller needs payment right away that should be stated as well.

Glad this got cleared up.
