    Beckett's Marketplace is aids

    Jesus. I went to buy a bunch of the same card. It came out to $27 for 46 cards from 4 different sellers, all of which regularly sell for $.50 or less per-card. Okay, not bad. Now add shipping... $46 total. Yeah, NO THANKS. What a bunch of a-holes charging $4-$5 shipping for 10-card lots. There should be a Beckett-implemented $2.66 max on shipments under like 25 cards, because it's just price-gouging at this point and it costs them more sales than it's worth. I obviously am not paying $1 per-card for a card that consistently sells for under $.50. What a joke.

    I almost never purchase from there. Shipping costs are insane. When I do buy from Beckett marketplace, I will buy bulk from burbank to avoid the shipping costs.

    Not everybody uses paypal to ship.. you go to the post office, you will be paying at least $3.50 to ship a card.. So if someone is asking $4 it's not out scope..

    This isn't the 80's where s&h was included.. so many things have changed with the e-markets..

    You go to a physical card shop, you are paying for gas to get there.. sometimes parking, tolls, etc.. do you factor in those costs when you are paying $0.50 for that card.

    Is there some secret to this on COMC because I can't ever find commons cheap there. I use sportlots for most of my commons buys for set building.

    I think the problem is that since its a good place to buy bulk people buy out every single card of their set (at least thats what I did) so there will be times where it seems empty.

    I am done buying atm but check this out guys, a 6 buck Crusade is there.

    I call BS. I purchased around 100 of said card off sportlots from around 6 sellers and I paid less than $.50 per-card. It's not a postal issue, it's a Beckett Marketplace problem.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I only buy from the marketplace if I can't find the card anywhere else, I rarely buy more than 2-3 cards at a time there anymore, the shipping is high and more often than not I overpay for the card itself

    Aids are a bad thing, right?
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    When I get sick mama just gives me some antibiotics and cough syrup and in a few days I'm right as rain!

    BTW: How does the saying "right as rain" make any sense? It feels like an essentially meaningless alliteration.
