This auction is for a near mint pack pulled chase card from the BERNIE WRIGHTSON Series 1 set of fantasy art cards published by FPG (Freidlander Publishing Group) in 1993, Hologram Chase Card H3, "Late Arrivals."
For purchases of card sets, IF I have a clean-pull wrapper (one that has not been ripped or otherwise damaged when opening it), it will be included with the set. If this is important to you, please inquire BEFORE bidding, as I am not always successful in getting enough wrappers that are not ripped.
The cards are 2 1/2" by 3 1/2 inches, roughly the same size as baseball cards.
All cards are evenly cut. Card sets will be shipped by Priority Mail in a hard hinge-top plastic case. Chase cards will be delivered by First Class Mail in hard sleeves.
Except in unusual circumstances, all shipments will be mailed within 24 hours of receiving payment (except, of course, if you pay on Saturday), and will often ship the SAME day you pay if I receive your payment by 230PM EST (930AM EST on Saturday, because my post office closes at 10:45).
This is one of HUNDREDS of fantasy art card items I am selling this week, so please check out my other auctions and save on shipping!
CARD SETS, inside the US: US buyer agrees to pay EXACT shipping in the US via Priority Mail (per eBay’s shipping calculator), plus 40 cents per set to cover the cost of the plastic case. No additional fees will be charged. I work hard to make sure your shipping costs are as low as possible.
CARD SETS, Outside the US: I am more than happy to ship ANYWHERE in the world. However, due to many problems and delays, I use Global Priority Mail ONLY. This is non-negotiable. Buyer agrees to pay $14.00 shipping (Canada and Mexico are $12.00) via Global Priority Mail for the first set, plus 40 cents per set for up to 4 more sets to cover the cost of the plastic case. If you are overseas and want more than 5 sets, please read below for shipping discounts.
BUYERS IN ITALY: I have received many complaints about Poste Italia, and their frequent loss of parcels. Global Express shipping is available, and it is INSURED and traceable. It does cost quite a bit more, however. To make it a bit less painful, I will pay all supplies costs myself and ship up to 5 sets for $26.00 by this method, if requested.
SPECIAL SHIPPING DEAL FOR LARGE PURCHASES, inside the US: I know that some collectors have their own storage system for sets. If this is you, or you just don't care whether you get the hinge-top cases, I have a deal for you! If you are a bidder in the United States and DO NOT want the hinge cases, I can ship from SIX to THIRTY SETS or more (dependent on the sets), well-protected, AND as many chase cards as you want -- for only $12.00 TOTAL for all of them. If you purchase 6 or more sets and want to take advantage of this, please let me know. If you are NOT West of the Mississippi River, this deal will probably not work out to be cheaper for you unless your total is 10 sets or more.
SPECIAL SHIPPING DEAL FOR LARGE PURCHASES, Canada and Mexico: I can ship up to 20 pounds of cards (sets or chases, roughly 4,500 cards) WITHOUT plastic cases for $27.00, but dependent on the quantity you purchase, it might be more economical to send multiple packages, since I can ship 6 or 7 sets without the plastic cases for $12.00. I can send up to 22 sets WITH the plastic cases for $27.00 plus 40 cents per set to cover the cost of the plastic cases.
SPECIAL SHIPPING DEAL FOR LARGE PURCHASES, Outside North America: I can ship up to 20 pounds of cards (sets or chases, roughly 4,500 cards) WITHOUT plastic cases for $44.00, but dependent on the quantity you purchase, it might be more economical to send multiple packages, since I can ship 6 or 7 sets without the plastic cases for $14.00. I can send up to 22 sets WITH the plastic cases for $44.00 plus 40 cents per set to cover the cost of the plastic cases.
CHASE CARDS: Shipping of chase cards is FREE to all US buyers. Outside the US, shipping cost for chase cards is $1.00 shipping via regular mail for the first card, and an additional 50 cents shipping for each additional card, to a maximum of $12.00 shipping cost (Priority Mail in hinge-top cases) for Mexico and Canada, or $14.00 maximum for the rest of the world, REGARDLESS OF QUANTITY. Chase cards shipping WITH set purchases require no shipping fee.
Payment is now via PayPal only.
I do combine shipping for multiple purchases, so don't forget to check out my other auctions!
Feel free to email me with any questions.
SOME IMPORTANT NOTES, TO MAKE UP FOR THE FACT THAT EBAY IS MAKING NO EFFORT TO INFORM YOU OF THEM:
1- Shipping is exact via the calculator on eBay. The only additional charge is for shipping supplies, as is clearly stated in the auction. As you are aware of your "handling" charge in advance, there should be no reason to leave less than a 5 for the shipping costs DSR. If you ARE overcharged for shipping, this is an error in eBay’s calculator, NOT one on my end. Often I will catch this at the post office, but if I do not I need to be informed of this in order to correct it and send any refund that you are due.
2- Feedback is left on or around the day your item ships. I NEVER hold feedback "hostage," and I never have since my first day selling back in 2000. When you have paid me, you have done your part and have earned my positive feedback. I would appreciate the same in return when your parcel arrives. If there is a problem that has you feeling you need to leave less than a positive or less than 5 stars on any DSR rating, E-MAIL me before leaving feedback. I cannot correct an issue I have not been made aware of.
3- INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I ship ALL parcels within 24 hours of payment. I can prove the EXACT date of shipment on any international parcel, as my post office allows me to scan their portion of the customs form AFTER they have officially stamped it. International parcels can be confirmed shipped by the USPS via the customs form number. While the USPS provides approximate shipping times for international parcels on their website, NEITHER THEY NOR I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SPEED WITH WHICH YOUR POSTAL SERVICE AND CUSTOMS OFFICES WORK. I can prove when your parcel shipped, beyond that I ask for your patience. If you are concerned about the length of time a parcel is taking, please work with me as I have the post office trace it, and please inquire with your own customs service using the customs form number I will provide to you - international customs/postal offices will often not answer me, even if the inquiry is written in the local language.
4- A preferred seller's capability of keeping costs low is tied into the discount we receive for higher DSR ratings, so if you are going to leave DSR ratings, PLEASE leave honest ones. One star for shipping costs, when I charge you the actual shipping cost plus 40 cents for the plastic case is NOT accurate, and WILL be reported to eBay for review.
