That's the only thing I really look at when I'm bidding, I rarely look at the description. I bid on so many cards that I don't want to take the time to read each description. The top of the listing shows the shipping and condition and that's all I care about anyways. Ever since he had an issue with me winning cards so cheap, he puts this in his description.
I don't think he should be allowed to list it as free at the top, if he has these conditions in the description. I know his account name so usually I just don't bid on his stuff but like I said above, sometimes I bid before I realize he is the seller. That happened a week ago when I won this.
I picked this up for $.22, it's a refractor so I wasn't sure I would win it and when I realized I did and who the seller was, I was thinking great, I'm not getting it. I've won his stuff occasionally and he usually just cancels it because I refuse to pay for shipping. I wish he would just block me as a buyer so his stuff wouldn't show up in my feed. I was going to block him but I have to do that on every search and I have one for each player collection, plus a bunch for vintage and team and I didn't want to spend a day doing it.
He ended up listing a bunch of Sox autos and relics a week later and they were under my minimum so I bid on them anyways. There were about 5 or 6 of them so I was hoping to come away with at least 1 so I could get the card above. Well, I managed to win 2.
Technically, they are the same card but I don't mind dupes of relics or autos. It's nice that both relics are obviously different as well. I got the black relic piece for my max bid of $3 and the white relic piece for $1.77. These 2 Konerko's make 13 cards picked up this year and also bumped that collection up to 425 cards. When I went to look and see how many cards I had and to add these 2 cards to my sheets, I realized I already had this card. I clicked the link to see it and funny enough, it's also a different relic piece.
All 3 of those cards also make 214 cards picked up for the White Sox collection this year.
