Angry Well screw you, Mr. eBay guy

I use eBay a lot...to sell and buy. Never had a problem before, 100% positive feedback~!, yadda yadda yadda. But I'm a walking disaster, so it was just a matter of time before something went wrong.

The other day, I bought a trading card from some guy. "Mint condition" said the description. I obviously misunderstood, as I've always thought "mint condition" was a synonym for "perfect". I forgot about the other meaning of "mint. Y'know...

m-int
adj.
Something in mint condition usually has the following features:
-a huge crease right down the card
-the foil part of the card covered in scratches
-large scrapes on the card
-heavy corner peeling

I emailed the guy yesterday evening, but he hasn't replied yet. I really needed this fucking card too.

Anyone else been struck with shitty false description on eBay?

most the time i have no problem with it, but on occasions, i do get some not so accurate descriptions, usually they forget to tell you something about the item.

One time I ordered the best of Starrcade, '83-'87 off Amazon. And if anyone's ever seen that video, it's awesome. Tons of Ric Flair, Rick Steamboat, Rock 'n Roll Express, Ric Flair, and then the Tully Blanchard/Magnum TA cage match which is legendary.

I was pretty hyped... and guess how disappointed I was when I got Starrcade '93 instead. I decided to actually keep the tape, you know because of the Ric Flair/Vader match. And it turns out that even sucked. Great.

I've never been stiffed on anything off of EBay, yet.


I've bought about 7 or 8 things I would say, all have been perfect condition, like the description says.


One question, the guy you bought from, how was his feedback? Did he have any negatives or anything?
