Default Is it ok to fold an LOA to pack for shipping

Hey all,

I've had this come up a couple of times recently when selling items and was hoping for thoughts.

Is it ok to fold an LOA so that it fits into the box when shipping a signed baseball, or should I send it separately (or use a much larger box)?

Would your opinion be the same regardless of the price point, or do you think that over a certain price point (or possible full LOA vs. auction LOA) might be the distinction?

Thanks

Never fold unless buyer says ok (in which case they might not even want the LOA).

Personally I wouldnt care if it was neatly folded. If I cared I’d put a few book on it and flatten it out. But I agree better to ask before folding it.

Agreed. I would not want the Loa folded 4-8 times into a cube. Common sense. That said, I wouldn't pass on buying an item based on if it was folded either obviously. It is still an loa. My thought are, If you scanned it with your item Unfolded, it should be mailed unfolded.

I'm okay with it either or. I think it's acceptable if it's business tri-folds...
