Dear CopperAgeKids - Don't rob people *PSA*2021

Collector CopperAgeKids private msg quote post Address this user
I refunded Carl the grading/shipping costs because he asked me to return the books to him, ungraded.

I was unware that the books had not been subbed to CGC intil about a month or so ago, I gave them to my helper at Eternal Con in NY to sub, while I dealt with customers.

Carl emailed me about the hold up and I checked my CGC submission hub, saw there was no record of them being subbed at all.So, I called my helper and he told me he couldn't read my handwriting and had forgotten to tell me that he didn;t sub the books at the con and had put them back into my wall book box, behind my table at Eternal Con.

I then pulled the books from my wall book box and saw they had reverted slightly so I spot pressed both books (and full book pressed them) again.This can happen sometime when books are spot pressed and/or pressed but is more likely to happen when spot pressing is included, along with full book pressing.

I did offer to cover the cost of grading the books, when Carl subs them himself to CGC.He said that wasn't neccesary and passed on the offer.

@sd2416...indeed.

The good thing is...it's not my story and I don't have to weed through it to decide what is real...it simply does not matter. I hope at the end of all this, that the books have been returned in the same condition so Carl can get some well deserved closure.

Shit happens in life...but accountability is a lost art.

It was an error on your part for whatever reason and only you can make it right. This poor bastard didn't deserve any of this headache and "why" isn't his problem...just quietly give him is books back (as you hopefully have) and move on.

Did I read that correctly? You paid $40 per book to have them pressed?

Is his release paper made out of gold leaf?

Wowsers.

So your helper was at the con with you, couldn't read your handwriting, so instead of mentioning it to you there, he puts it in the box and forgets about it until you mention it however many months later?

And then that story about someone using a proxy to sign in from your up on the cgc forums.

Red Hood said it best, "flea market antics"

When I brought release paper to him as a goof I ordered the basic pack for around $7 from Amazon. No gold leaf for CAK

It's a good thing he didn't pay for CAK's onsite pressing...what were the fees on that one again? $200 a book done at the con?

If you're lucky and the book doesn't need any dry cleaning you only pay the low, low price of $125 or 2.5% FMV (whichever is higher)

So Carl was still charged $80.00 and didn't have his books submitted like it was written up in the contract. The books where gone for 1/3 of a year. I think someone still owes someone a $80.00 refund.

You see, my son has a game leg, ya know, and we had to take him to surgery. Well that night, my wife fell ill and my grandpaw blew his brains out. I couldnt possibly keep track of your books. After that was done I just had to concentrate on making as much loot on ebay to catch up. I shipped your books but the postman doesnt like me very much coz I slept with his brother. He kept holding them and returning them to me. Thats why i kept saying your books would ship. Then someone stole my phone and they kept telling you the books would ship as well! So I fought him in the parking lot of 7-11 and won, so i finally had my phone back so I could call you. Ot was a bloody fight, I still have scars. Then my helper got into a bad car accident, and went into a coma. You see, I couldnt tknow where your books were at that point. When he finally woke up, we looked for days for your books, and I lost so much money due to spending so much time looking. You really should pay me more because these books took so much of my time. We finally found them and shipped them to you though!! PS those books were not second print nor newsstand books, you were wrong on that. So dont get mad when you get your package. Looking forward to doing more business with you soon!

Was that meant as sarcasm in some ways? This felt like hard to believe now then.

Yes, let's hope everything wraps up well and move on. Sounds like the issue may be resolved to at least some extent.

Ok - the original poster got a response from CAK and was able to respond back. The situation seems to be settled. There is really no point in leaving this thread open to comments. In other words, I'm locking the thread. To leave it open only invites more drama.
