    Unhappy I sold a card and it was damaged in the mail and returned...

    I refunded the buyer, but I don't know what to do with the card. Can I try and resell it? Will people buy it if I explain the condition it is in? Should I just give it away?

    Unless you are willing to spend more on Ebay fees. I would either throw it away or give it to the neighbors' kid...

    I guess it would depend on what it is (if it is worth reselling or not)? Either way you need to be upfront (& make it as "clear as day" in your auction that it is damaged) & in detail description (as to how it is damaged) if you decide to resell it!

    I actually remember buying a Colby Rasmus '05 Chrome Auto for about $40 and it was damaged in the mail (seller didn't offer insurance). I sent it back and he relisted the card and sold it for around $30 - he clearly stated the condition of the card when he relisted it. (Card had a noticeable crease on the back right corner). I would say some money is better than none if you are thinking about tossing it.

    No. Bubble Mailer, it also looks pretty beat up.


    Here is the buyers pic of the card, you can see how it is bent.
