I purchased a lot of cards from Rainout Sportscards from the Beckett Marketplace on Feb. 27. USPS says shipping info was received on the 28th, but there hasn't been any updates stating the cards have actually been shipped. Their store on the marketplace now loads a 404/Page Not Found error. I...

I never really liked displaying my vintage collections on my Ellis Burks site. They don't seem to fit the look and feel. After "re-branding" my old T206 site, I launched red-type.com to display my T210 set and 1887-1957 type card collection. Feel free to let me know if you notice any browser...
