Default Shipping full sheets

Anybody sold/shipped any 132 card sheets lately? I am going to sell the few I have left and was shocked by the USPS priority "tube" shipping price.

If anyone has cheaper suggestions I would love to hear them. Thanks

How about buying your own tube and ship USPS Ground Advantage ? I'd look into this option and compare the prices.

I was being lazy and hoped someone that had already done that would answer.

The extra $15 fee they implemented on packages over 30" in length last year really hurts when shipping baseball bats, as well.

The wonderful lady behind the counter at the post office told me UPS is the reason for the $15 price hike. USP flies the packages and added the fee. It is why if you use ground from USPS it is still cheaper.

Um...the few you have left don't include any from 1978 Topps baseball do they? I still need the Murray and the Rookies sheets...

No just some junk era stuff. The best being an early 89 Fleer error sheet. I also have a 87 blank front and some bazooka sheets. I will list them in the BST section in a few days. Still need to figure out cheaper shipping or sell as a lot.

On subject, but off the postal cost subject. I have found the cheapest and far more secure to any bend or crush damage method for mailing posters and sheets is to find a dumpster behind a carpet store for the center tubes from a carpet roll.

The tubes are a 100 times stronger and can be cut to length with a saw or a circular saw with a plywood blade nicely. Nothing gets it there better.

That is a great idea. I have done similar with 2 bats. I got a new deadlift bar a few months ago that arrived in a shipping tube.
