There is no such thing as a free lunch. I wouldn't touch it. Obviously there is something wrong with the card otherwise it would have been graded by PSA or SGC.

Stuff goes off the web, usually when a closed business doesn't pay for the website anymore.

Looks like this website was only active 2003-2005. So they have probably been out of business since late 05 (last archived on 19 Nov. ) It's possible they were gone earlier but the hosting company left their stuff up for a while. it happens, mostly from laziness - why spend time clearing the site off the server as long as there's room?

Have you ever shipped a card worth a couple thousand dollars? Insurance is why the shipping cost is so high. If the card sells for $2500-3000 the shipping cost will be $35 or more.

Sorry to disappoint Pete, but I figured I'd post this here instead of starting or bumping yet another PWCC thread. Something else "worthy of attention" in the current auction is that they're selling a "? AUTHTCT" card, which they only describe as "AUTH" in their auction listing and description.

Incidentally, they did a similar thing last year with an E92 Bender card. Brent/Betsy pulled the listing after it was brought up here. I messaged PWCC four days ago about the Joss card and received a response three days ago from someone named Melody that they "will be investigating this further." Three days later, and the auction is still running. Whoever is listing the cards really needs to learn what "? AUTHTCT" means.

Sort of seems like they know almost nothing about the cards they sell. (When it's convenient, of course.)

Saw a Gehrig strip card listed right now that is black and white. Yet they describe it as "wonderful color". OK, whatever. Starting to look like they have a random adjective generator that kicks out their write ups.

That is odd.....I've never known PWCC to auction off fake cards!!! What in the world is going on with them?? Do you think they hired people that know nothing about the cards they are selling??

I can't think of any possible answer based on that listing other than "yes."

Default PWCC Offering



They also describe this one as mini! They didnít just state that it is trimmed!

Description


Exceedingly popular Cobb production which presents like a VG+ card. Strong card stock with crisp edges and well formed corners. Irregular edge cuts along the top and bottom account for the assessment. Part of an exceptional run of ever popular T206's on the auction block this month. Nearly the entire issue is represented here with many showing better qualities than the technical grade suggests. The finest grouping to hit eBay in some time. One of over 12,000 cards, lots and sets up

"MINSIZERQ" doesn't mean trimmed - it means it's factory-cut short, and they won't holder it. If they had determined it was trimmed, it would be "Authentic" instead of "MINSIZERQ," and would still be holdered.
