1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Since I have found all those great vintage NFL cards I have kind of been obsessed with getting these cards graded. They will be sent off to PSA next week. Since I cant tell a PSA 6 from a PSA 9 card, I am definitely going to take advantage of their monthly specials. You can save a lot of money going with this route.

    I don't think people expect it for next to nothing, but I do think they expect deals a little better than the going market price majority of the time. At least that's been my limited experience here.

    Thats what you would think but I KNOW different.
    Lemme give you an example.that crazy yellow Polo madras I found.
    I had three people email me about it.
    Sold completed prices range from 60 to 250.
    I asked 120 shipped.jacket cost me 25 and its gonna cost me 25 to ship it.is it unreasonable to make $70 on a nice sport coat?
    Never heard back.happens at least twice a week.
    They were probably in the 60 to 80 range.no thanks.
    I got bills to pay besides Maseratis aren't cheap.

    Incredible finds! It always baffles me that people do this; I get that you love your RLBL but do you seriously need 6 of the exact same one in black? Live a little and mix it up with some different colors!

    Alas, they were ALL Tru-Spec. Paper tags. Some made in USA, some in Honduras. I did not buy them.

    Also Winny not to bust your balls but the keyword in your reply was LIMITED experience.after awhile it just gets ridiculous .make a FAIR offer and swag will be in your mail.simple.couple of dudes here get it and have thousands of swag retail in their closets for pennies on the dollah.

    ^they only get 35% cash, so he sold that for $10.50 :(


    Also, who likes garment dyed pants? Definitely not the guy who donated these.

    Their are people here who think it's unreasonable to make any money selling here. This is partly why I'm a bit gun shy about trading here.
