They've got a machine that clones unlimited packing peanuts. They also use the cloning machine to produce unlimited boxes of 2014 Topps Turkey Red Football.

Just wanted to share this with everyone. Just got off the phone with UPS after my third package delay on one shipment. The representative explained that unless a package is shipped "Next Day Air" it will experience delays getting to the destination (potentially 2 days extra). Since they do not deliver on Saturdays (unless specified and paid for) the packages will not resume their status updates until Monday. They explained there are only so many trucks and some major cities are backed up for 2 days. She encouraged me not to pay extra for shipping in any way because it will no longer be "guaranteed" like their website reflects. She said this only applies during non-seasonal periods when delivery times can be guaranteed. Happy holidays!

Thank you for the info. I was just waiting on hold to check on my packages.

have my stuff coming on the 7th now. no biggie. I ordered late on BF got the UPS tracking a few days back, got the blowout tracking email the next day or so after that.

fwiw d&a had one item that I was interested in and they sold out before I completed my cart though. I think they had a higher price from what most were selling for on ebay. it was the 1993 tsc murphy stadium club dome set. everything else was not great, mostly panini as usual but the deals they normally do just weren't there. I didn't check anyone else.

also my 100lb cast iron gas grill was "missing" from the On-trac loading doc when they were loading up the truck to deliver. so if anyone finds a rather large box with my grill please let me know. should have been delivered between the 27th and 29th

UPS already experiencing delays. A couple weeks from now one can imagine it will be even worse. They are trying hard to hire people now but seems a little late for that

They announced today that they're running 2 days behind, so all future orders through the holidays will be expected to arrive 1-2 days later than expected.

It's going to be a cold winter, so I'm using blasters of 2014 Topps Turkey Red Football as insulation in my attic.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to throw a few cases of Turkey Red on to the fire to warm this house up . . .
