This, I did not like as I pride myself for having the highest of standards both as a buyer and a seller.

I have a feedback score of (6,010) 100% positive in almost 18 years on EBAY.

That doesn't happen by accident.

If there was ever someone I did not give the best customer service to, I would want an opportunity to make it right.

There's enough competition for me to bypass his items (in addition to Dean's and battlefield)- and I won't miss anything - he is just a hypocrite.


Currently, I am not in a buying mode for vintage as I made a couple of high-dollar purchases in August and am using BST to help offset that bill if only slightly.

For, modern cards, I am avoiding EBAY as much as possible due to what I feel are greedy fee policies.

I have made several purchases through the Beckett Marketplace though I do pay through EBAY's quasi property PAYPAL - and get charged 25 cents when I have the balances transferred to my bank account.

As I said before, probstein is dead to me...

and ebay is on life support.

Just my own way of handling things...obviously, not for everyone.

I'd be pretty salty about that too! I was actually bidding on four or five cards last night that Probstein had and they ALL ended at the same exact time. Why would they do that? I probably would've bid a little more on the ones I lost out on if I had known the outcome of the others beforehand. Seems silly to me...

Did I read Correctly in one of his emails he has had 300 MILLION sold in consignments? Sure only 5 buyers actually paid, but it is a staggering number

One of my favorite auctioneers on the Bay.
Excellent scans; ships quickly and securely, and you can often win cards in reasonable hammer price ranges unlike PWCC.
I have never experienced an issue with any of his auctions as a potential buyer.
