wow great writeup!



I have so been in that same exact scenario before.

I had lost a box of reg insured mail full of Frazetta CGC SS. (7 total books all 9.2 + Creepys etc.)

What really stunk was that I under insured it cuz I was being cheap on insurance and reg. insured mail has never failed.........my package got misplaced at JFK apparently.

I am really happy you got your books! Nice grades. Best of luck with everything! Those racks are sweet \:\)

So, another aside...
I received my first negative feedback yesterday.
It is a long story, but I will break it down once the eBay 'investigation' concludes.

Basically what occured was that a buyer's package was damaged and he wanted to return it.
I accepted the return and refunded him the cost of the comic (not the shipping as well).
He was not happy.

In the end, before he left the feedback and knew I wasn't going to budge, I broke it down to him like this:

$8.09 (comic) + $5.90 (money paid for shipping) = $13.99 total paid to me
$13.99 (total) - $5.90 (money paid to USPS for shipping) = $8.09 left to me
$8.09 (my money) - $8.09 (refund) = $0 left to me
0 (my money) - $5.90 = -$5.90


To which he responded:

Do you understand that when I paid the $13.99 it had the $5.90 in it for shipping. You didnt pay anything out of pocket. But when you said you would give a refund that you committed to paying back the full purchase amount. That is how it works and why most buryers wont make a purchase without using paypal for buyer protection.


This was my final statement to him before the negative feedback:

It did have the $5.90 shipping included in the total, but that $5.90 shipping was paid to someone (USPS) to do a job.
A job you have admitted they did poorly.
Why should I pay $5.90 out of my pocket because the USPS cannot perform their job correctly?


He opened a case, eBay / Paypal froze $5.90...
Was I too hard?
Should I given in?
Should I not accept returns?

I am going to create a text block that explains all this and will be included in all future auction listings.

Hi umyeahwhatevers,

I'm not taking sides but who will take the $5.90 hit? The buyer??

My opinion you should have gave him the $5.90. It's just such a low amount. That 1 feedback might've cost you customers. Now you have to deal with PayPal. And more than likely PayPal will take $5.90 from your account and give it to the buyer. Now you out money with a negative feedback.

With my auctions I always include insurance. So if the book is $8.09 (book) + $5.09 (Shipping) + $1.65 (Insurance) + 0.75 (Delivery Confirmation) = $15.58.

If anything happens to the item I will give the buyer a full refund including the shipping cost. Then I will make a claim to the USPS amount of $15.58.

Thanks.
I will begin automatically including insurance in my future auctions.
Also, I will pay the money rather than have it forced from me.

Now that I have a negative, it doesn't make me fear them anymore.

*Update - eBay will not allow me to close the open case...waiting to see what they say...even if I 'win' by decision I will contact the buyer and sent the refund.

Finally, back to the collection.
With all the buzz over X-O Manowar and the Valiant relaunch I decided to find the box I thought would be worth the least...

Here they are:


Here are the ones eBay says are worth the most:


Links to the various PGM threads:
PGM X-O Manowar #1
PGM Archer & Armstrong #0

So...it's been a while friends.
Nothing to update on the collection.
I sold the X-O Manowar on eBay for $20.
Right now the Vengeance of Bane is listed.
That's about it.
Hope to get back into these books after October...
