So we decided to open a box of 2000 sp authentic football today.

Back in 2000 I had purchased a case of 2000 SP Authentic football after coming into a little extra cash and I thought this case was going to be so much better than what Topps had to offer at the time. I opened the whole case except for one box that I decided to save for a later time in life hoping there would be no redemptions in it but a perhaps a gem or a rookie that exploded into something great. Well today was the day that I opened that very box after curiosity was getting the better of me and after dusting off the six inches of dust on it I will share with you what I found or should I say what was waiting for me........

you may now crap your pants over the guy on the far left!

The Big Kahuna picks his week 4 NFL WINNERS.....and perhaps his nose as well!

I believe there was a tragedy this week in the NFL. I do believe the New York GIANTS football team was purposely derailed to some swamp in order to entertain some country folks by playing FOOSEBALL with Momma and sipping tea and playing on the banjo because THEY DID NOT OBVIOUSLY SHOW UP TO PLAY THE PANTHERS. 38-0 was the final score.

Eli Manning returned to his old form and enlightened us with this lovely kind of a performance:


The GIANTS OFFENSIVE LINE had this kind of a performance:

Brandon Jacobs had this kind of performance after he kept running his mouth all week:

This week they take on the Kansas City Chiefs who just happen to be 3-0 and seem to be playing realistically 10x better than the Giants right now. I look for the Chiefs to manhandle the Giants at Arrowhead Stadium.

Here are my picks for week 4 of da NFL:

San Francisco 28   @    St. Louis       14

9/22/13 UPDATE: The guy finally received his package and closed the case. I went ahead and refunded him his shipping costs since the USPS screwed it up. He hasn't replied back since I did that. I'm just glad he got it.

So......I had some auctions end on EBAY on Sunday Sept 8th. I received 90% of the payments within 24 hrs. I always give one business day for shipping and handling time as that's all I need as everything is prepped ahead of time. So I shipped everything out from the Allensville Post Office on Tuesday Sept 10th. I had to go away for a few days and was leaving on Thursday Sept 12th and was going to be out of state for a week. On wed Sept 11th I received a notice in my mail that most of the packages I had sent out were returned for not enough postage. The Mill Creek post office is only open now from 9:30 to 1:30 due to the morons not being able to handle a budget and it's normally around 2:30 when I get my mail so I knew I was screwed for getting anything taken care of immediately. So I contacted my postal carrier whom I'm friends with and left him a check for the Postmaster to cover the cost of additional postage as he is familiar with my Ebay business. Everything was handled just fine on his end and Irene Miller the Postmaster called me to let me know the difference and to also let me know just how much the lady at the Allensville post office screwed up my whole order. So now everything was being reshipped on the 12th. Most of the people are now getting their packages but I have one guy who has already filed a complaint of not receiving his card.

Here's what just happened:
cardinal*nation*cardboard let us know that they haven't received "2012 Bowman Joe Kelly Orange prospect auto card# BPA-JK serially #155/250 HOT!!!" and has requested a shipping status update. A case is open and you can view the case and the buyer's message in the eBay Resolution Center. 

Ebay has already taken back the money he's paid.

I had people leave me poor shipping times in the star ratings which for years I had all 5's and my shipping time has been slated down to a 4.6 WHICH I HAVE A RECORD FOR MY FAST SHIPPING TIMES. So far no negs have been left but it just rubs me the wrong way even more because when they reshipped my envelopes Irine never left me the tracking numbers for the insured stuff  that was resent and I have no way of posting/checking up on the statuses. She sent the stuff out and didn't bother to save the tracking info which I needed. So I got pissed off ebay customers who have not received their products due to the lack of improperly trained Postal workers. The only one who did anything right was my mail carrier Buck. All Irene said was, "Sorry, I didn't know you wanted that stuff also." She thinks she may have it still somewhere but no guarantees.

FUJI you should have yours anytime!

Not all has been bad though. There is hope! I did have one guy from Oregon inquire yesterday because he didn't receive anything yet and then I got this yesterday afternoon:

Dear hertz27,

Hey my friend,

No worries. It showed up in todays mail. Thank you for your response and looking into it. Hope you have a good day. Thanks again.

If there was another decent postal service I would use it!

Yes I am shaming myself.....but for a good reason.

Hi Folks. I am about to do a shameful plug of what I am selling on ebay.

I'm selling some of my cards and other various items because those things called, "surprises in life" always love to pop up when you are low on funds and it's two weeks before the next payday and I am already working extra hours to cover ends meet as it is. When you have to spend over $700.00 for parts with money you don't have to pay for your only mode of transportation and I have to have a vehicle for work I have no choice but to start parting with my collection because it's what I have to do in order to take care of me and the kiddos.

Take a look at what I have listed so far. Maybe you'll find something or maybe not. I'm hoping to get a list up of prospect auto's that well be bargins listed on here in the next day or two. More to come folks!

it's game time!
