Long story short; I won a Corbin Martin Chrome RC /250 for 99 cents on ebay. I recieved the base Corbin RC along with another Astros player card. I checked the seller's feedback and there were a lot of complaints so I assumed they knew exactly what they were doing and just scammed me from the correct card. So, I left negative feedback.
I then received a message from them saying something like; "Sorry, Why didn't you message me?" I didn't even bother writing back. I've dealt with a lot of scum on ebay so just figured it was done.
Then, a few days later, the bubble mailer pictured above showed up at my door. The guy sent the right card, paid for bubbler shipping, refunded my 99 cents and apologized. I was the scum on this one. Connington72 is a great seller who made an honest mistake.
I learned some lessons on this one!

Bloggers are a different breed. Seems lately I have my Tweeps I trade with on Twitter that are okay, my favorite Trading Card Database swappers I exchange cards and pleasantries with, and then there are the handful of Bloggers I call my friends. Bloggers share that passionate generosity where we feel thrilling excitement for other people's reactions of what we send to them almost more than when we open cards for ourselves. Dennis from Too Many Verlanders is my closest blogger friend and the most generous person I swap cards with. This dude is always looking out for me in every box of cards he peeks through. He gets me JaCoby Jones and Nolan cards often. Very often. But, even more incredible is the deep cuts he hits into my PC. I can barely remember who I collect. I swear Dennis knows what I collect better than me. Check out this package I got from him pre-Xmas that my lazy ass is just now getting into posting.
