I can stomach all of those annoying terms. Sellers like to hype their items by giving them extra attention in an effort to make them stand out from the pack.

But the words "Never Get Cheated" might be the one phrase that I can't stand to see any longer. It is such complete crap, not to mention an outright lie. Especially in regard to the proven altered cards that are sent back to them (for them to self-review).

It's akin to Lance Armstrong giving himself a PED test or Coach's Corner authenticating an autographed Baseball. Their catchphrase should be changed to read........... "If and when you do get cheated, don't come crying to us".

I also struggle with calling current players' chopped up uniform pieces and bats "relics" or "artifacts". It's not like you dug up the tomb of King Tut or Julius Caesar.

I can’t stand the “rocket”, “explosion”,and “fire “ emojis! I find it a little childish.

They do have a better ring to them than the more accurate "vandalized laundry".

I guess I found it more amusing then annoying though.



Was tempted to contact the seller and ask: "I'm really interested in your item, but am concerned about it's behavioral problems. What do you think would be the best way to calm it down?"



This had me literally laughing out loud. Thank you Sir.

FLASH SALE!

When a seller posts a card for 20 times what anyone would pay for it, then discounts it 85%. Still a rip-off.

By all means, use it.

One that I hear all the time in my practice (in regard to real estate transactions) that makes my teeth grind: flexibility. As in "does the seller have any flexibility?" Argh!

Don’t forget the quick sale! Then they will put “ take it for $xx” . Like they are doing me a favor and letting me “take” it for this price.

PSA is such a joke! I've never seen such a bunch of inconsistent graders in all my life.
Just last night I decided to check out the latest PWCC auction and seen so many cards graded all over the place it wasn't even funny. Cards graded 5's that should be 3's and 3's that should be 5's.
Even PWCC writes occasionally in their descriptions that they don't understand the grades.
I don't purchase nor like PWCC but it's pretty bad when likely one of the biggest PSA supporters/sellers of their graded cards also notes this.
