Whether its auction houses such as Huggins and Scott, Love of the Game or EBay big sellers such as Greg Morris, PWCC, Probstein. et you know you will in about 99.9 percent of the time receive your item you paid for and it will be the correct item.
There will always be bad buyers and sellers and we just have to be careful on both ends. That's why I prefer local shows and stores and I get it that we have an active DFW market for in-person transactions. Not everyone is so lucky.
