Default Greed is good (for me)

So much griping about Probstein and Yelpg and others about their insane buy it now prices and . . . those dirty, greedy mfers . . . dead to me . . . all of them . . . and then I see cards listed on BST that are priced to move at thousands of dollars more than a similar card in basically the same condition just sold for weeks ago Heritage. Sigh. Whatever.

But they're all the best examples of the cards that anyone has ever seen. Even if they aren't.

Such cards are probably all worthy of the coveted purple sticker...

-- Cards in bizarro company slabs which weren't cracked out and sent to SGC or PSA not because they're trimmed, just because "you know how risky it is" or some other bullshit -- but the card isn't trimmed, the seller swears.

-- 8(OC) cards with comp sales prices of straight 8s in the listing.

-- "Need to move these right away due to family issues."

That being said, I don't think anyone is unaware that there are just as many scumbags on the BST as there are anywhere else cards are sold.

I'm apparently doing it wrong. Bought bulk lots, not individual cards, from the wrong auction house, not Heritage, and I'm trying to make dozens of dollars, not thousands.

Sorry, you can't qualify as a scumbag then.

There are two jokers in every deck of playing cards. There are sellers on the BST that use a different name when selling in person at the National. Why...they are so full of shit and don’t want to be called out in person. Maybe they will wear a fake mustache this year????

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

I have no problem with capitalism -- why should anyone here? Make as much as you can. As long as you don't defraud, shade the truth, etc.
