I am looking for some advice. My eight year old daughter is interested in martial arts. She took a trial class last night and is sold on it. I, on the other hand, am not completely on board. The studio (and fees) are structured so that kids take a minimum of two classes a week. The...
I recently won an auction on eBay and paid right away. The seller then contacted me and told me they made a mistake and their e-mail address isn't active anymore and they have a new address. The asked that I cancel payment and send it to a new e-mail address. They still haven't updated their...
I also got a laugh, but they do get repetitive very quickly. This type of thing is sometimes called "scam baiting". If you do a google search on it, you can find some other much more amusing sites. My favorite is this guy:
He specializes in people running 419 bank...
You probably meant bobdabench. Bob D'Angelo (bdangelo) is and still is an excellent trader.
Unfortunately, some people are only good traders as long as they want to keep trading here.
Good to hear from you again,

The declared value is also for insurance purposes. When they ship the cards back to you, they insure the package for the total declared value. As a result, if you over declare your cards' value, you may overpay on insurance.
I think they want you to use their price guide when assessing the...
My assumption is whatever money he makes by driving up the price of his auctions is greater than the eBay fees he pays when his shills win. Keep in mind that in any auction, the price is set by the highest losing bid.
Comparing the top of the market to the bottom of the market probably isn't fair. If you compare card collecting now to what it was in the 1970s, things are looking up.
I don't doubt the market is in some level of decline. There are a lot more things competing for people's time now than there...
I know very little about them other than what I read on Beckett. According to Beckett, they have 20 employees. If I was running a business the size of Burbank Sports Cards and I wasn't making at least $30k for my efforts, I would need to either make changes or think about doing something else...
My guess is they make much more. I base this on the fact that they have several employees.
I do wonder if you could borrow part of their business model: buy rare cards cheap and use the fact that you are the only one who has them for sale to sell at a premium.
