For the 2nd time in a week I had a eBay envelope show up damage and beat to hell and damage done to the card.i had a feeling it would happen when I seen it stuck in Las Vegas for a week and sure enough I was right
Had the same thing happen...but with bubble envelope ...seller indicated non-machine on the bubble envelope and they (usps) ran it threw the machine.....crushed the top loader which damaged a 2008 UD Heroes black of Ken Griffey Jr. auto/patch serial to #25! (you can tell they ran it thru the machine....because it looks like someone ran over with car or truck!)....got my money back by filing for insurance claim....but I would rather have the card. One less ....only 24! Best regards, David
Yesterday, I received a Bryce Harper RC from 2012 Topps Heritage High Numbers. The post season release. It carries a nice price, but when I opened the package, the card was at the very top of the top loader, ready to peak out and get damaged. Fortunately the card is not damaged. I would think the opening of the top loader should have been taped. On a better note, I have been receiving small card lots in 25 count or larger plastic boxes. That will survive mailing unless the package gets crushed.
