At least the description is honest.  Reminds me of someone who once sent me a tablecloth-sized scan of a really common card that looked like they had found it stuck to the bottom of their shoe after going for a walk on a rainy day, and asked how much it was worth.

Sometimes you just have to throw stuff away, especially when it's in that state.  I've noticed the other stuff they have is OK looking.

Doesn't it cost them to list these items?
Always looking for interesting cards and associated goods issued by Ogden's you can see samples of cards I am looking for in the wants section.

I think if you have an Ebay shop you get up to a certain number of items for a fixed price.

As I was reading this thread I was thinking "Decopostcards"

Even more amazing is he actually sells some of them if his feedback is to be believed.

Cards in this condition should not appear - they should be consigned to the waste basket!!

Pleased someone else has spotted this guy. He causes me frustration on a weekly basis as I have saved searches for bird cards. He relists the same cards in their hundreds every week. Shocking condition and charging book price or more!? He has had most on there for a couple of years now, auto relisting. I'd guess they must be free listings or he would be losing lots of money by now! Is there a way of removing sellers from your searches?
Always interested in buying rare bird cards and general reference material (books, magazines etc.)

Yes.  Go to advanced search.  Near the bottom is a section headed "sellers".  Select "Only show items from" and "specific sellers".  Then select "exclude" from the selection box/drop-down menu and add the seller's name.  I think you can possibly exclude several by using a comma-separated list.

Can only agree with Vernon, should be in the waste bin. If they were really rare cards then that might be different....

And if it's a genuinely rare item. Do we still bin it?

another contender and a common card, if this was a rare find then of course okay but the sellers who are putting these on eBay are obviously doing zero research.
