Yeah, give him a negative and call eBay if necessary. Forward them his message to you about not being able to sell the card that cheap.

He actually invoiced me for the auction I won and said he'd ship it, so we'll see. I had sent him a note telling him to send the invoice or to cancel the sale, also noting that while the sale was low for the card, he'd probably lose more money by getting the negative feedback and bad word of mouth. I also noted how I bet the relisted item had a lot of views because I had posted on a forum about it, so thanks, guys!

Of course, to be determined if he actually ships the card...

You're definitely in the right, but it looks like this unethical dealer wasn't ever going to send you the card regardless. So you're probably better off not to have ever sent this idiot money.

Op-
Make sure you open the box at the post office in front of the clerk there.
People do tend to ship an empty box.
Because it shows shipped, they are off the hook. You need proof!!!!!
Don't fall for this trick or for a different item.

I'm totally expecting some shenanigans with this.

The package was accepted at USPS five days ago and is expected to be delivered tomorrow. I was planning on opening it up on video, as I don't think I'll need to sign for it and it will likely just be left at my house. Is video enough, or should I find some other way of having it witnessed?

Not sure, as I never had this issue.
I personally would open it in front of the postmaster, since your expecting fradualent activity and tell them that. And if so, then you have a witness and get written proof from him.
Not sure how a video works out. but should be o.k.

I guess it might be a Karma thing.
The question is now on you--- What kind of feedback do you leave???

That is the $64,000 Question, right? It ended up with the positive result I wanted, but the journey to get there was a negative. I haven't dished out negative feedback that much at all, and am not sure it is ENTIRELY warranted here, but a positive feedback is surely not ENTIRELY warranted either. I guess I'm leaning toward abstaining at this point...
