You already know how this ends..... :facepalm:

This package came in the mail today.  When I felt the package I knew it was a CGC slab because THERE WAS NO CARDBOARD and I could simply feel the plastic thru the envelope.

SO I paid over $1000 for this and the seller couldn't take the time to use cardboard, padding, or a box.  doh!

The slab is opening about half way down one side.  The comic appears to be ok.

The seller said he would try to get some insurance for me, but when the PO insurance sees these pics won't they just say "Um... where's the packing protection?"

So..... should I have the seller pay for a reholder plus shipping?  Just send it back and get my money back?  See if he's able to get some insurance out of it?

tough call up to you if you want to wait for re-holdering and shipping. I would send back unless it was really hard to get another copy of this book with the sigs etc...

It appears as though the seller is completely incompetent. I would agree, send it back for a complete refund. But if you like the comic so much then request money for a reholder. That is completely ridiculous

What the hell happened with the shipping?! Looks like it was slugged half way to kingdome come.

Anyways, I have been on the seller end of such a transaction, though it was never this bad. If there was some damage through the shipping and the buyer made me aware of that, I would refund the cost of a reholder. I wasn't sent an image so maybe I was lied to, but I gave the buyer the benefit of the doubt.

I am curious of one thing though, can a reholder work now? The seal is broken so that removes the grade guarantee, doesn't it?

The insurance/partial compensation/reholder will be a massive headache.  Best to just send it back for a full refund and let him deal with it.

Look up the book in Ebay's sold listings and you can see who the seller is.

It's not there or else I would not have asked for Gadzukes to provide it.

My mistake for including CGC in the search terms.

As long as there is no damage to the book itself or the inner well, a simple reholder would still be possible...  (thumbsu

Correct. There has to be adequate packaging or the postal service will deny the claim. And this packaging is a long way from "adequate"...   :facepalm:

I agree with all those above who said send it back for a full refund, And for what it's worth, I would never buy any comic - slabbed or otherwise - from a seller with that feedback profile. I don't mind a low amount of feedback, but I like to see some feedback in the last 12 months and, hopefully, specific feedback re: shipping comics i.e. "perfectly packed!" or "comics arrived safe and sound."
