ended up getting a ps5 from the last restock at WM.

Anyone have a nice sports card collection that they want to part with?!

Just not getting into sport cards breaks and its expensive!

Wait sports cards are worth money again? Most of mine are 80s and 90s and last i checked they were less than they were worth in the mid to late 90s. I do have a Mickey Mantle, but it is in rough shape. Might have to see what I can get out of them.

Oh I know they don't care, doesn't make them any less stupid for doing so. Sounds like they were gone so fast anyway that even if it had been tweeted, it would be too late.

Honestly it makes perfect sense to release these in off hours. They will sell whenever they go up, but putting them up early in the morning is less likely to crash the site. Most of these companies only derive a tiny portion of sales from video games. They lose money when their site is down (probably way more than they make on low margin consoles).

You will get your console keep trying!

Be carful using E-Starland. I use to mail in a lot of games to them, and the last time I mailed $200 of games to them they lied and said half of the items were damaged (I’m a collector, most were never used), and they charged me for the label since they took $100 off the total trade value for the “damaged” games.

I emailed and called them, and the person who I talked to was extremely nasty about it and said there was nothing they can or would do.

They literally straight up scammed me.

Wow that sucks, was this recently? I do not send them anything questionable, but I have never had them reject condition. I have sent quite a few over the years. Is it possible the carrier killed the box in transit?

....I've traded in a bunch of stuff to them before, and I didn't know anything about a free shipping label.

I understand COVID and all, but the last time I traded stuff in to them, they held it for over a month before giving me the credit. I was just banking some credit to use for Black Friday sales.....and then they didn't have one this year.

I still love Estarland, though. :)

I think it is over $100 in tradeins and at least 10 items triggers a free shipping label. My last trade took more than 2 weeks, but was certainly less than a month. I like keeping credit on hand there for random retro stuff.

I like how eStarland does their trades. They offer different amounts depending on how complete the game is when you trade it. Plus, when you go to buy a used game they specifically tell you what's included with it as well (case, manual, extras, etc).

Estarland is great because you know what you are getting and they have good quality control. Only thing that sucks is the $100 minimum to trade stuff in to get free shipping label. They give you some shipping credit if you are under $100, but it never actually covers the cost to ship.
