Default well, here we go again...lost cards

I swear, the post office is nothing but a bunch of tards. In the past month, two separate packages containing my cards have been lost in transit.

The first package, shows as departed from sorting facility in Flushing, NY enroute to me, and no other update since 12/14.

Here is the USPS tracking number
9114901230801349976032

The card in this package was my Black Box Crusade on card auto /5. I believe it was numbered 2/5. I wish I had taken a scan of front and back of the card before, but do have a clear image of the front scan. The card would be easily distinguished because it was slightly bowed as if it had been sitting in heat and warped very slightly.




The other package has been missing for the past three weeks. I had made a deal to sell two carmelo knicks autos to a member here (santosdegollado10). The package has been missing since then. No sign of it. It contained a 2010 Gold Standard "Gold Bars" Auto /5. The auto cuts off at points throughout the window.



As well as a National Treasures Century Gold Auto numbered 5/10. The card was graded a BGS 9.5. BGS Registry Number : 0007640630 as seen in the picture

scan of the back




At this point, if anyone can point me to where these are. I am offering a reward. If you have them, I will make arrangements to pay you whatever you have in them. I am a huge melo fan and collector and I would never want to have anyone's cards that were stolen in my PC. I hope that nobody else would keep them in theirs. I really would appreciate everyone keeping their eyes open and helping me find the cards.

Do you have tracking for the cards you sold? Just wondering if there is a common usps location between the two transactions.

Sadly no. I don't have tracking. Thought I did but didn't really pay attention to it.

Honestly from this bs I'm seriously debating on just saying screw this hobby and selling out my whole pc to be done with it. This is absolutely ridiculous. If karma really exists, I should be hitting the damn lottery sometime soon

Wow. Wtf. That's ridiculous. Someone there apparently steals #@#@#@#@? Do you have a number to speak with someone there at that facility? I'm so fed up with USPS being morons. I'm seriously ready to just give up the hobby all together.

I live in WV. The card was coming from NY. It's ridiculous that someone puts tracking on a package and it somehow goes missing. When I called and complained, they said "well these packages are small and get scanned by machines. there's nothing I can do or nobody I can call." Then what the hell was the point in calling and talking to you? For you to tell me how worthless you are?

Wow that's ridiculous. I'm praying that's the case. That crusade is one of only two cards carmelo has signed on card autos for. It's that and the Notable Nicknames. I have only ever seen one other crusade auto, it was owned by a member on here who I cannot remember his username.

Wow, sorry to hear all the Melo drama you are having with your cards as of late. I hope the issues get resolved. And if someone at that facility is doing wrong, I hope he/she gets punished for their actions. Good luck and I hope you get your Melo cards back.

Thanks man. I know you collect melo, if you ever come across any of the three from your searches, could you please let me know? I'm willing to pay anyone who can point me towards them. Or if anyone is able to actually get them I'm willing to pay them whatever it costs to get them back.

I called them multiple times. Emailed. Called the facility in Atlanta. Everyone I talked to stated that the package never arrived.

Well. Considering it was the flushing facility. Highly likely the cards were pocketed. Whoever they sold them to must be a collector because none of the three have surfaced again. I have pictures of the BGS label for the nt auto as well as pics of the serial numbering of both the others.

At some point, we all need to band together and start using FedEx or UPS or something.
