I am an Idiot; Ebay Quid Pro Quos and Such

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!


  1. Ouch. Cool that he sent right card in the end.

  2. We all make mistakes. Definitely sucks for the seller... but this was a great post that opened the eyes of every one of your readers.

  3. In this day and age, it's nice to see someone actually admit that they were wrong about something.

    1. Indeed.

      I guess one should give people the chance to do the right thing.
