If i sold anything worth $60k on ebay i would personally deliver it to the person. I've worked for both UPS and USPS and i don't trust either with a piece of 20 year old gum let alone a $60,000 piece of merch.
That's a bit of a different story than heading to the mall and visiting jewelry store XYZ. Although funny that they used USPS rather than sending it personally... Would've expected it being in one of those suitcases handcuffed to a guy's arm.
article says they aren't suing anybody. It must be nice to shrug off $60kI can only assume this will go to court and the middle man company has to be found at fault since they signed for packages without confirming the contents of the bulk package. Sure we all sign for things without confirming, but with a tracking number they would have KNOWN it would be delivered that day.
I'm saying though.
Well it all really depends on how much the original owner paid to acquire it (and insure, and store) in terms of how much that would eat into their margins. It's not 60k pure profit.
It's not worthless per se, only that it's provenance is unclear. If found, nobody credible will touch that card if it's rightful owner can't be determined.
right, which makes it effectively worthless (unless found/returned) unless there is a black market for pokemon cards out there. Anyone willing to shell out over $50k for a card will be one of those 'credible' collectors that wouldn't touch this
I don't mean anything negative about this, but are you in the Continental Americas or are you more a Eurasian person?
He has 100% feedback, how could he not be trustworthy?The only thing I would pay $60,000 for is an old Disney VHS tape whose auction is obviously being used as a front for drug trafficking
Who wants to pay 1.5 million dollars for a collection you could assemble at Good Will for $20
Do you know how many trainers they had to beat to trade for this card?
Nope. They just told me my lying eyes and their own safeguards were somehow wrong.The Hope Diamond was sent from NYC to the Smithsonian via USPS Registered Mail, and it's worth a few hundred million more than this Pokemon card.
Registered Mail is tracked every step of the way, secured in a safe, and cannot be delivered without an in-person signature. If your carrier is cutting corners on priority expresses or certified mail, that's one thing, but on a Registered? At best they'll get fired; at worst, the Inspection Service will get involved.
In the states.I don't mean anything negative about this, but are you in the Continental Americas or are you more a Eurasian person?
The reason I ask is because the issues with Amazon and DHL sound familiar. I don't think your a person I met but I have had similar issues with Amazon and DHL and international shipping before.
lol there was a dumb Internet rumor a few years ago, especially being spread around through Facebook memes that was like WOW YOUR BLACK DIAMOND DISNEY VHS TAPES ARE WORTH THOUSANDS to the point that Snopes had to do an article about it
