Default Growing weary of eBay craziness and AHs 3am crap

The best, least stressful, things I have bought this year have been on the BST board here. Dealing with an informed seller who knows how to fairly value things has been a pleasure. If you haven't dealt with folks on this board you are missing out big time.

I have bought a lot of great stuff from fellow members and it has been better than eBay and way way better than my only AH experience.

I have had both good and bad experiences here and on E-Bay.

I am fairly new to all this yet, but that has been my experience so far.

Submitted an offer to a member here, after he told me to bid "what I can afford, don't worry about it" only to have him reject my bid immediately, and after 5-6 PMs/e-mails, he won't reply?

I have dealt with more great sellers than I have not so great sellers on E-Bay, and other than the Global shipping B.S., which I detest and refuse to use, it has been trouble free so far.

No A/H purchases/experience yet, but their commission fees scare me so that likely isn't going change anytime soon either.

Love this site and would like to solely purchase from members here but when I see a card on E-Bay that I haven't seen previously that I like, I end up bidding on it rather than posting and asking if anyone here has one for sale.

I still buy a fair number of eBay items myself, but all things being equal would rather help out a fellow collector.

I do both, but personally I hate eBay with a passion. There are some solid sellers on the BST here but you got to take what they give you.

Was it a member that actually posts on the forum or one of the "members" that only sell on here? I have had a problem with one of the ones that only use the forum to sell.

Yes, but not very often.

I don't see the big deal. Put in a snipe on ebay and either you win or lose. Bid only with auction houses you trust and put in your max bid and go to bed.

Lots of people did that with Mastro/Legendary, those "trusted" auction houses. That worked out well, particularly when the bidders used that wonderful "max bid" option. I think I'll try to stay awake and then bitch about the price later.
