Today I got a letter from a ebay seller that i once bought off.
In his letter he is selling singles, sets, boxes and cases for series 2 all at reasonable prices. Cases are $1780 each (148.33 per box) free postage aswell (I might buy a case).
I think it was a smart idea to send a letter to previous buyers. Coz he doesnt have to pay heaps on ebay fees.
But im sure other ebay sellers would not be happy.

Its typical I have seen a similar thing with people who ask questions in my messages, then they get inandated with offers.

What are they selling the boxes for?

Its amazing really isn't it. Well eBay are just so expensive that people are trying to find ways around paying the high selling/listing costs (especially if your item doesnt sell).

I wouldnt have an issue with it someone who i have bought off and r happy with , it would be just like getting something off Cardzone in the mail. If the seller can sell at cheaper prices good luck to him i say. If u want to avoid fees maybe sell some on John site, maybe John could start his own payment plan fee to sell only maybe $1.00 per entry no fee on sale. Would be much cheaper John could pay for the site and improve it as well and the seller would have 1 cost.

In the past I have had emails sent to me selling team sets for 8 bucks each. Not sure how they got my email address, i think they got it from that yahoo group. But this is the first time I have got a letter since Cardzone.

I miss the Cardzone paper. It was the only thing that kept me interested in cards for many years. Loved seeing if my cards had gone up. Cancelled my subscription 4 or 5 year ago because I only bought a few cards and accessories.

Na i didnt pay for it. With the last letter it said I had to send a letter back saying that I want to keep on receiving mail from them. I didnt reply, so they stop sending me letters.

For me the case would have to be factory sealed with case card intact, and if anyone can do that for me at $1780 I'd love to hear from them.
