    The changes include new zone based pricing for first class packages. You'll see higher increases for shipping to the East Coast, compared to little or no increase for packages shipped locally.

    The postage rates are why I make sure my trades are worth the postage. After a few trades where the postage was more than the cards were worth, I make sure the bv of the cards involved is high enough to justify the trade. The only exception to that is PWE trades where I don't mind helping someone out for the cost of the stamp even if the cards are of little value.

    So I probably average a little under a trade a week (maybe 3 a month) but they are almost always decently high in value.

    I do paypal shipping now- 2.66 for under 4 oz and I don't have to deal with the lines at the PO. Still, postage rates for small packets are beyond ridiculous. They went from about $1 to $3 and up in just a couple of years, ridiculous. Most of the time when I trade I pay more for shipping than I paid for the cards I traded, still its a lot of fun!

    Definitely a bummer to see the prices going up again......

    Fortunately, I am not a real high volume trader, so it won't be too bad, especially keeping it to PWE's when possible.

    Where it will hurt is doing the TTM autographs - will see how that goes in the New Year.....
