Let's see.....hmmm......his rookie year but yet he was in the Pro Bowl??? There have been so many fake patch cards up on Ebay that it's just completely disgusting. Another thing that is getting out of hand is the shipping charges. I only ever charged $1.65 for shipping which gave you a sealed top loader and shipped out in a bubble mailer and sent first class. Never had a problem and I never had a complaint and I had been doing business on Ebay since Feb 10, 1999 (http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=hertz27&ftab=AllFeedback&sspagename=STRK:ME:UFS). It amazes me that when you buy a $1.00 card and they charge you $4.00 for shipping and then when you finally get your card in the mail and you open the envelope and it falls out of a penny sleeve...yeah...automatic negative will be given in my opinion.
Oh by the way, I quit doing business on Ebay at the beginning of February this year because of the ridiculous fee's that have been brought on by Ebay and Paypal. Plus the fact they no longer really support the sellers and the feedback system stinks. So I closed out my account and I have yet to pay my Ebay fee's. I had sold a card to someone who claimed they never received it and then they turn around and tried to sell it on Ebay 3 weeks later. Do you think Ebay cared? Heck no. They did absolutely nothing even after presenting them with the proof from the auction and pics of the card (serially numbered- matched my auction and his). It took me getting the police involved and threatening to have the guy arrested for fraud (he did give me the money for the card finally thanks to the Sheriff's department). Here's a copy of it: Goes from newest to oldest.

|First never defraud someone who does investigations. Bad move on your part. You can play coy on the phone all you want. You know very well which card we are discussing Maunel.|
Secondly I will give you notice that everything has been transpired between us including the emails have been faxed to the Tulare Sheriff's office and at the fax number they gave me . 15 pages worth. feel free to call and confirm it if you like. I also turned all of the information into paypal as well.
I am more than willing to work with you and give you a chance to either send my card back to me in the condition as described and as seen in the auction or you can pay me the money owed as what is was in the auction. Your other choice is facing legal action and I am prepared to do so. If you send me the card or pay what is owed I will not press charges. I give you my word on that Manuel. People make mistakes and can be forgiven for them. I will tell you I do not harbor any anger towards you. I just want to know why you lied.
I will call the Sheriff's Dept and tell them to drop it if you work with on this. You already gave me all the proof I needed to go forth with everything. The choice is up to you.
