Anyone else think this is a bit "bush league"? I'm sure eBay would be thrilled to know its auction site was being used to promote another auction....

What other collectibles auction company has done over $700 million in the last year? They are the #1 coin auction house in the world, I believe....

With all due respect Leon-

Cant' we leave it at the cards? I personally don't care what auction house has done millions of dollars in coins, barbie dolls, or bottle tops. They are hardly the top "sportscard" auctioneer in the country.

"No publicity is bad publicity. "


Chris,

I know this is an old adage, but it is decidely, not true for any business that relies on the public for their survival. It may work fine for a "celebrities" like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, but it's not for everyone.

Chris,

you do make a good point about the eBay live auctions not being available anymore and we our not saying it was wrong what you are doing. maybe just more surprised that you have been able to do this with eBay and all the restrictions. I have tried many types of scenarios and ideas - some have work and others have not. There just needs to be a little bit more level playing field with these kinds of issues on eBay.

Good Luck

Jimmy

I was only pointing out the statement that Heritage made was in fact true. "LMAO" at a true statement is sort of paradoxical....(is that a word?)....regards

edited spelling...thanks Barry

Someone forwarded this link to me.

Seems pretty clear that the Heritage listings are in violation of Ebay policy.

But my point was more than that. Every auction house should go far out of their way to avoid anything that even comes close to the appearance of impropriety.
