    I also got a laugh, but they do get repetitive very quickly. This type of thing is sometimes called "scam baiting". If you do a google search on it, you can find some other much more amusing sites....

    It is fixed. I spent some time on it last night and figured out the problem. I am not sure as to how or why it was changed initially. It was not intentional.

    The declared value is also for insurance purposes. When they ship the cards back to you, they insure the package for the total declared value. As a result, if you over declare your cards' value,...

    Comparing the top of the market to the bottom of the market probably isn't fair. If you compare card collecting now to what it was in the 1970s, things are looking up.
