Good call. At least you'll be assured of delivery. 

Btw, didn't realize you were in the Flyers GW group. Sneaky! ?

Yeah I should have done that from the beginning.  I don't have these issues with FedEx and USPS.  I think I just have a lazy driver.

Yeah I am in that group lol.  I am part of about 1/2 to 2/3 of the league's team-specific groups these days.  Mostly just like to look at what is out there and admire other jerseys.  I have been toying with the idea of attempting to collect non-Devils jerseys again, but haven't pulled the trigger.

I think I found out why the guy might not have knocked on my door last night.  Wrong # on the street address was listed.

Well, that would do it.  My street name was spelled incorrectly.  Gotta love the precision when dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars in merchandise.

this was way harder than it should have been

He's gonna be surprised when you apologize to him.  "I'm sorry I thought you were a bum, Mr. UPS Driver."

I had one recently were I typo'd my zip to the seller.  Ended up at a post office 200 miles away.  USPS did a great job with rerouting it, but I had to go get the package once it got into town.  Mail carrier decided leaving the pink form a block away in my neighborhood mailbox counted as a delivery attempt.  Now THAT was a bum move.

My OCD definitely kicks in when I send stuff out. I'll triple check before I address something and then I'll confirm on my phone once I get to the post office. I'd be freaking horrified about a typo in the address.

lol oh he's not out of the woods yet.  The address was printed right on the label so he could have looked there.  Also this is not the first time they have "attempted" delivery when they really didn't.  This is also not counting back in 2014 (I remember this as it was during the first summer in my current home) where the UPS driver's version of delivering a box was to throw it.  He actually threw it onto my front porch near my front door where it hit the side of my house first before landing.  Both my wife and myself were home and heard a couple of loud thuds and wondered what the hell happened.  I take a peek outside to see the UPS guy basically running back to his truck.  I opened the front door and next to it was our package (it wasn't a jersey or anything fragile).

So yeah he still has a long way to go lol.  Also my package from EPS is due this Friday via UPS.  Thankfully this shouldn't require a signature.

In Ultrafil, though?  It looks similar to the old timer's jerseys, but the sleeves are different.

Yea, I think that might be a prototype from when the black jerseys debuted. I had asked the seller for a Buy It Now price this morning... but now I dunno if you guys are gonna drive the price up haha.

Nah, I won't be going for it.  I was more curious of what it was since I've never seen a black Ultrafil Flyers jersey.  I probably wouldn't have posted about it if I was interested in it, haha :D  Sorry to let the cat out of the bag!

That's pretty cool. I like the black design they wore, but I do wish it had more orange on it.

Has anyone ever seen a goalie jersey up on Meigray's ebay page? I keep waiting for them to put a goalie gamer up but nothing yet.

I don't recall seeing any, but they have a clearance section on their site that has a bunch of goalie cut blanks and few random players.

So they were planning on adding a black jersey even before the switch to Nike?

That's an interesting jersey. I may take a shot at it.

Received an offer on a jersey I'm trying to sell on eBay, accepted the offer, then I get this email:

"thanks for your message. Iwould love to buy this jersey. I'm collecting  nhl goalie practice jersey and this would be my first canadian team. 

The problem ist that I'm getting paid on 07/10and I would have to wait to buy it. Is this a problem for you?"

 

if it was a couple of days, sure no problem. But 2 weeks is a little much... why even send an offer if you don't want to buy it?

Because he didn't want to miss it. All he can do is ask. 

I have a couple pieces for sale that I'd gladly hold until 7/10 for an interested buyer.

You're never getting paid for that. Relist it and tell him to try again when he actually can pay.

Yeah if it was me personally, I would just see if I could cancel the "sale" and relist it.  Every time I have had people ask me to hold something for them as they are waiting to get their paycheck I never hear from them again.  Since this is eBay, you can't ask for a $20 non-refundable down payment on it either.

I've never done it on eBay, but I have done it here on the forum multiple times with success.

Actually, I'll amend this.  I would have filed a non-payment claim as soon as the guy informed me of his paycheck sob story.  Can't float a payment 2 weeks?  Too bad, so sad.  Get a better job.

I batted .000 being a nice guy on ebay.   The way ebay is set up, all of the pain of a non-payment is already borne by the seller.  No way I'm making it harder for myself.
