Agreed...if it was a $5,000 card, that is actually cheap.

As if the shilling isn't enough.....I won an L40 Amherst Baseball leather on ebay last night. It said $15.00 shipping, so I should have emailed them but their Shipping matrix shows $4 for a single item won between $0-$250. I emailed to confirm after winning and was told that it fell in the oversize clause of their shipping. The leather is 2-9/16 by 3-9/16, exactly 1/16 by 1/16 larger than a standard sized card. It comes with an envelope that it came in which is maybe 1/16 larger than that as it fits snugly inside.

I was informed by Bobby Rittenhouse of PWCC that the $15.00 was, indeed, a good shipping charge for the item. Should have checked with them first because didn't think they would try to go with the absurd shipping. SOOOOO.....be sure you look very closely as they do not really understand the true meaning of the word oversized. I'll be expecting this item to be shipped in the sturdiest of containers, double-boxed due to the extreme fragility, in the timeliest of manners.
I started a post here about their shipping fees but I was wrong when I thought they increased the higher the bids went.
Regardless, I still find their shipping fees excessive, especially paying the exchange rate on them, but I thought you guys stateside paid a lot less than what we do up here.

Like you'll see in the above post, a lot of their fees don't make any sense, at least in my opinion.

I have paid $75.00 shipping to PWCC for a single, T206 card in a standard PSA flip. But, the shipping cost was clearly stated and i just considered it part of the price and bid accordingly. In other words, I knew what I was getting into. PWCC's shipping is silly expensive/high, but if I see a T206 Matty White Cap PSA 6.5 I must have, let alone thus T213 that cost me $25 in shipping, then I will pay the shipping.

I agree it’s annoying (ok wrong) to pay almost as much in shipping as you did for the card, and I validate that PWCC’s shipping is wicked high and customer service may dictate that they give breaks to an angry customer when something is an inch large. All I am saying is that it’s tough to get behind a rant about how much shipping someone paid when shipping costs are clearly disclosed; and Tom, in your case, I don’t know if shipping was disclosed, my comment is general in nature.

My guess is that you are paying for insurance on the items and not just packaging and shipping.

Absurd? Absolutely
Spelled out for all to see? Yes
Surprises? No
Frustration? Yes
Answer? If you donít like it donít bid or contact them before the auction ends.
