Patrick -

Depending on what you paid for the cards, and potential profit you may realize from selling them, you're probably best to leave negative feedback and sell the cards.

Your time is worth something, and rather than going back and forth with the seller and eBay, you could be off to something else.

I understand doing things on " principle " and ethics, but it is what it is and may not be worth the run around.

Most " dealers" are rude and could give a crap less because they will just sell it to someone else. They dont care if they get repeat customers. The best transactions are always with private party deals where the guy is just a collector like myself. Thats just the nature of this hobby. It was the same 30 years ago too for the most part. It seems like all the nice guys went out of business because they wouldnt screw people over or cherry pick everything.

Had a similar experience recently. I bought a card that had creasing in it but the seller did not say it was creases. He had his own description of the what Good to vg was as well.

I did not return it because I don't need to run chores for someone else. I have to go to the post office on my day off and then wait to see how the sellers reacts when he receives it. I'm not getting reimbursed for my time and effort. So I kept the card. It's was a 13 dollar card so for me it's not worth the hassle. The seller should just send me a small refund. I mean buy the time it sells again and you pay me for return shipping and the ship it again pay eBay fees , what left in profit for the seller? Idk I've been getting burned on both ends recently on eBay.

My take is as you put it the price reflects or still under the actual grade I think that says a lot. I'm just a collector and for 40 years so I should be able to put a grade on cards as best as anyone but in all the years of trading I have never put a grade on anything even trading with you. I always send pictures and describe the flaws and let the other person decide the grade for themselves. Everyone still grades cards a little differently I look more at the price to see if it reflects the grade I see. What you are describing is some deception but ultimately if the price is accurate I don't see even leaving negative feedback as some suggested.
I say move on and do whatever you want with the cards. Rick

PS. On the other hand by what your saying some people could say you were only going to be happy because you thought you got a great deal. I wish I could make a profit on every deal I've made.

Well, I think we have a sufficient quorum of votes ... and the majority says kept it, sell it and move on.

And that's what I'll do.

I have to say I'm a bit surprised the reveal the seller option didn't gain more traction. I thought that would be the most popular choice - because after all, the voters would learn the identity of the seller and have more information for future purchases. I was actually afraid the poll was biased and unfair to the original seller, but that was the least popular option. Very interesting.

Thanks to all who voted!

Why wait for a quorum on outing the seller? Out the seller. Period.
