here's the auction so you can see for yourself (at least for the next 60 days or until the link expires). There are a few things the seller did wrong in my opinion:
- No pictures. Really? If you don't have a scanner you must at least have a cell phone? Nothing tanks an auction, especially something like baseball cards where condition matters, like the lack of even a single photo.
- Bad auction title. I would think the fact that the words 2013 Allen & Ginter were all spelled right would have at least attracted some others to this one, but why would you use 'team lot' instead of 'team set' when you've got a complete team set (plus complete Across the Years team set)? I could almost guarantee that listing this as '2013 Allen & Ginter Red Sox Team Set, Game Used & More!' would have generated many more hits.
- Finally, a poor description. At the end of the write-up the seller states "Only 2 cards from 2012 in this lot". I'm sure to some this may have sounded like the seller could be being deceptive and was only auctioning off the two 2012 cards. We've all seen stuff like that before. A quick look at this seller's excellent feedback should have quelled any doubt there.
