The 2008 Timeline Gold Pujols Story
Here is the story of the 2008 UD Timeline Albert Pujols Gold Card I said I had, and it's a doozy. I finally got this card in the mail the other day. I won it over 60 days ago, and I know this because it will not show up in my eBay. The card arrived in a bubble mailer, penny sleeve and top loader. There was also a note inside the package, which I should have kept to scan, but I threw it away. The note was an apology for the delay in shipping and that the seller has had a lot of family problems and was very neglectful to his business and certain parts of his life, and that all PayPal claims and negative feedback were definitely deserved but he wants to keep his customers and sent everything out anyway.
Now, I filed a claim with PayPal a long time ago, got my dollar back and moved on. Then the card arrives months later with this note, and I am not sure what the point of this whole thing was. I think it was a very nice gesture on the part of the seller to still send out the items he promised people, but I think I could have done without the novel. A simply apology would have been sufficient because now it kind of looks like he has been drumming up a story. Then again, why would someone go through the trouble of dreaming up all that to send to people while sending them essentially free items.
At any rate, all I know is I got a card I needed and I am happy. I did not leave him negative feedback, at least I don't remember doing so. Poor Albert has been on a long journey and will be placed in his home shortly.
Has anyone else had this happen? This is a first for me on eBay in all the years I have been buying and selling.
