"Hey, you still have that jersey available?"

"Yes."

"Sweet, I'll take it."

"OK."

"Is that price with or without shipping?"

"Sorry, someone else bought it."

This happened over a span of about 15 minutes.

Collector: "Hey, want to trade your jersey?"

Me: "Sure, trade for jersey X that you have?"

Collector: "OK, that is a neat jersey"

Me: "Cool, I'll ship the jersey"

Collector: "Hold on, no need to rush"

30 minutes later

Collector: "I'm not sure I want to trade my jersey"

You guessed it, no trade.

"Can anyone help me photo match this jersey? I've looked all over the same exact websites that you already recommended, but I'm assuming your Internet is bigger than mine"

I had this one recently:

"Ship it fastest way and let me know postage (to Canada) when you ship"
Sends estimate per USPS.com is $45 for Express Mail for 2 lbs box
"No, you're doing it wrong, you can send it cheaper if you go to the Post Office"
I'm not wasting my lunch-hour standing in line to save you $10
"It only takes 30 seconds to fill out a customs form!"

Apparently I have the only copy of one team's jersey that this guy "needs", and is complaining about postage? Needless to say, not worth the hassle and blocked him.
Moral of the story? If you find "your grail", don't start trying to split hairs with the seller to save a few $ in shipping.

That gets asked here at least every few months also.

All of these things are incredibly annoying. I'm getting annoyed just reading this thread.

Me: "don't have the LOA as original owner lost it, but able to photomatch it to these photos"

Potential buyer: "sorry without the LOA I can't be sure what you are selling me is 100% legit.  I can therefore either not buy this or offer significantly less than market value."

Yeah, that's part of how I got snookered. Seemed like an OK board member. Didn't know that he had already ruined his rep on FB.

Not just any size 48 jersey with fight strap, but a jersey from a lower league, obscure team, that might not have even been produced, and if it was, not more than a handful in existence.
