    One small bump in fabric in a photo taken in mid-stride is evidence of a buzzer? What does this "buzzer" look like? There's significantly suspect stuff about Altuve's behavior, but that's not it.

    The explanation suggested by the seller seems perfectly plausible. His reaction might seem defensive, but ebay's been overrun by a-holes the last few years who want price cuts or partial refunds for...

    I saw an episode of South Park last week that had the kids playing Guitar Hero. When Randy pulls out his actual guitar and actually plays Carry On My Warward Son, the song they were clicking along...

    My ebay bucks let me get a full 2014 Topps Heritage set with SPs and insert sets for about $1.05. Same seller had the 25-card Action set, with the surprisingly expensive Trout and Jeter cards, for...

    That's disappointing. I'm not a Yankee hater, though it does get tiresome, but I really wanted him to go to the Angels if anywhere other than the Phillies. Anything to get Trout to the World Series.

    I accomplished #1, up to 92/120, including a Koufax, who was the biggest name I was lacking. Waiting for a Gwynn or Chipper is going to be tough.

    We did #5, spending 3 days at the National and...

    At $15,000, that's getting closer to the realm of the believable compared to $100K when originally listed. Here's a thread about it.

    I'd put that down to the votes in 1994 having a much different view of catchers than today. Not exactly "sudden" but the product of evolving understanding of the game rather than gut feelings and...

    I've got mixed feelings on Dynasty. The marketing materials from the original set were overblown and when we found out that "limited to 10 copies" was true but "we might have 6 different cards of a...

    Didn't know that. I always thought Topps introduced the boxed set high series just because of Fernandomania. It's surprising Righetti wasn't in that set, especially considering he had a one-game...

    Recently got a Grady Sizemore game-used BP jersey. It has the MLB hologram so I know it was used both in Spring Training and I'd presume before the game on Opening Day 2015. It's pretty clean and...

    Did ebay change feedback score?

    I just passed 21 years on ebay, and my primary account had been creeping up to 5000 FB. I don't pay it a lot of attention but recently noticed that I seem to have lost a couple hundred points. I'm...

    Nah, neither of these are even close to real. Aside from the non-206 like printing quality, how can a card get so beat up and still have such square corners? Completely inauthentic wear. You can...

    Given two options, I'd rather have a "meaningless" 10 than a 9.
