Despite the hide the ball stuff I actually thought prices were pretty strong when it was possible to figure out WTF they were selling. Still, I cannot understand how an experienced auctioneer could throw 600 cards in a lot with no descriptions and fewer than half shown or offer an 800 pin lot with a pick up only restriction. It is like they just didn't care.

And of course the usual ridiculous shipping costs. Over $35 to send me a few postcards and a small memorabilia item. I could ship it twice for that.
You make some very good points. The amount of times I see key (and very valuable) overlooked items throw in group lots in major auctions is stunning.

Sounds like they only offer the "shipped in gold plated mailers" option.
$35?, that really sux.
