Default One for the raw shiny block list

Sorry I have to return this but I invest in prizms on the premise that I can make a profit once they are graded. Due to the scratches on the front of this I can only hope to break even, and that just doesn't jive. I know the scratches are small but it's little things like that that can make the difference between $80 and $200.

There are surface scratches I couldn't see in the photo but once I took a closer look they can be seen when the card is moved back and forth in the light. Sorry but I expect my prizms to be blemish free


No biggie in the big picture but figured Id share

Were there surface scratches? That to me will make a big difference in this matter.

I understand your frustration. I have a strategy that keeps me safe from losing any more $ in this hobby. I'm a collector first but sometimes unexpected expenses pop up and my collection is a safeguard for that. For years I've been taking baths on things I've bought on eBay, never getting close to what I paid, until I developed this strategy. I buy what seems like has a great chance to gem. When sellers describe their cards to a tee that's helps immensely. When they don't I inspect the item as good as I can and if it looks centered with sharp corners w reasonable price, I buy. Take what u see in these photos. I took a $1000 investment on 19 cards, spend $400 on grading fees, and in return BOOM $3000 in sold comps. I hate selling. I usually hold onto my Psa 10s. So I don't do it for a quick buck. But it's really hard to not lose money in this hobby. If you know of a better way I'm all ears!

From this morning when I suggested he buy grade cards

I like how he acts like he expects you to just be cool with that.

I don't have much of a choice with the new hoops to jump through to get the discount. I'm not upset about the return, the card will be relisted and will sell again. Just throwing out the warning he has been added to my block list and I assume others as well.

He is flat out saying he doesn't want a raw card if it won't PSA 10 because he will lose money.
