Normally I wouldn't quote myself, but a card just arrived today that 100% illustrates this. I saw this '52 Berk Ross Jackie on eBay, but it looked like it had been in a house fire. Very dark, not presentable at all. But then I looked at the back pic and noticed a clearer shadow line and realized it was just a terrible photograph. So I made a low offer and he took it, as I'd guess he hadn't had any offers yet.

Here is the card's listing photograph vs in-hand today.

Two rules for people in the card collecting/selling/investing hobby:

1) Snipe
2) Buy a scanner

Who pays attention to the seller's grade on a card? I never do. i judge from the scans and ask about any creases. If the card arrives with a wrinkle back it goes as not as described.

Speaking of, I bought a raw Aaron RC and just got the card in hand today, and it's obviously trimmed. No mention of that in the description, but the seller is being a d*** about a return - "It was sold as is, I described it as 'authentic,'" blah blah blah. He pretty clearly knew and was trying to be clever.

There's no way I get stuck with the card if I open a "not as described" return request, right?
