I threw in a few auto bids after several hours of frustration and none held up.

Though not baseball, I did win two lots of large cents which I collect.

But I do want to make a point: I left substantial ceiling bids on both lots and won them for multiple increments below my max. Given what's gone on in the past, I felt it was important to share that with the board. And it is most appreciated.

Given what's gone on in the past, were you not at all worried making those ceiling bids Barry?

Was it a matter of just not wanting to stay up late?

Dave got it. The way I see it, unless you are willing to stay up until the bitter end you might as well leave a ceiling. And I decided I wanted to trust them, in some perverse way.

Greg, I have a vague memory of a slabbed version of that schedule being on REA a couple years back -- and going for much higher than what you got yours at. Am I right?

Jeff,

As always you are correct. It was in 2007 that REA sold a strong SGC 60 for for 7K, not sure if that is with the juice or not.

If I didn't own it, you would have had to pay more. Great card, you will be very happy with it! The one in Legendary had a few scratches and what looks to be water damage, but to save $3,000.00, I think I like yours more. Congrats!!

I only won this one, but I'm giddy that it went well below my max. HOFer, available only in m101-5, great condition, and a VERY VERY TOUGH small block back.

Default Did you see the shipping?

Won one lot, a $200 group of "Baseball Leader" pins. The 20% juice is high plus I get hit with another $21.60 in IL sales tax, and they want $24.81 to ship 8 dime sized pins about 30 minutes North of their offices. This should cost $6 at the most. If they refuse to reduce shipping, I will end up paying $286.41 for an item won with a $200 bid. I realize it is not much money, but paying an extra 43% seems a little much. Will have to re-think bidding with them.

Well, they are charging me $37.66 to ship 2 pins about the size of a silver dollar each. The final bid was only $350, so it seems a little silly. Imagine trying to charge that on ebay (or anywhere else). I wonder if they still have some leftover tape?

I got charged $42.00 for two small lots with a value of $2000. I could ship it insured for half that amount. Maybe they will consider reducing some of those fees.

In another, recent auction, (not Mastro or their spawn) I won a lot for just under $30,000. The juice added 10%. I was charged $30 for shipping and the package arrived by Fedex, one day after my check hit his hands.

And some people don't like that auctioneer. Go figure.


There's no pleasing everyone.

Mine was 58.94 Funny it looks to me the the shipping and insurance was also charged on the "Juice" price not what the lot was won for. I guess they want to make sure the 20% fee is covered by the insurance!! Sweet deal! Leon you sholud have never made it this easy with the smilies!! Gotta loveem!!

Do you mind saying what the selling price was? I can see a card that sells for $15,000 costing more to ship than one that sold for $1,000. Don't get me wrong, Mastro/Lengendary long has been known for absurd shipping charges, I'm just not sure it's fair to take into account only what's being shipped and not the package's value, too.

Rob -- what I purchased was nowhere near that range...

And I actually somewhat disagree with your assessment.

With Registered Mail, you can insure for $15,000 for $30.10. For $5,000 under $20-

Well, I know that Mastro/Legendary says on its invoice that it doesn't ship using the USPS, so the registered-mail option is a moot point. Whether the decision to not use the USPS is a wise one is another discussion. I don't know enough about the costs of shipping via UPS and FedEx to comment on how the value of a parcel affects the shipping charge.

And to be clear, I'm not defending Mastro's/Lengendary's shipping charges. I'll leave that for others to do. I'm just saying that it seems logical that the value of a package should be figured into the equation.

You guys are just thinking of this as "Shipping." But it's really "Shipping & HANDLING!"

It that damn "HANDLING" that runs up the cost.

I think the following is a pretty fair comparison regarding shipping and handling charges.

Group of eight oversized, graded cards -- total bid amount $1,700. Legendary shipping charge: $35.04

Group of seven oversized, graded cards, plus six standard-sized graded cards -- total bid amount $11,800. REA shipping charge: $25

The distance from Legendary's offices to my house is about 200 miles less than from REA's offices to my house.

Matt, it's not what you know, it's who you know.

Seriously, just contact Legendary (as you did) and I think any bizarre shipping costs are being fixed as per the email I received from Doug.

I emailed them within moments of getting the invoice and they never replied nor amended mine, so I paid it. Guess I need to start posting negative comments about them on the board.

That is BS. My shipping was $39.59. How is it possible that their invoice says one thing you can email them and get your shipping cut? Why not just email out the correct total the first time.

I already paid my invoice-- the day it was emailed to me.

Super service Legendary. Super.

Another steller customer service move. I didn't win anything with them this go around. I know with REA this year I had a bill for $2150 and the shipping was a flat $20, shipping was also a flat $20 last year when my bill was about $3k.

Dave - it's not fair to compare. REA only takes a 17.5% BP so they can absorb more of the shipping cost. Mastro takes 20% so they have less...oh wait...
