He had every right to not accept my offer.I have used car lots,i turn down offers all the time but i dont tell the guy im not ever selling him a car because he wouldnt give me what i wanted on that car.He knew that i had a 265,000.00 CD coming due & that i wanted to buy BB cards with most of that because of the low interest that Cds r getting at this time.Is that really helping the heirs by eliminating buyers ? When Eaglerun made him an offer,he didnt try to negotiate a price ? What im saying is this is not the guy who needs to be in charge of a collection like this one.I have bought all but 4 of the cards since at about 50% of SMR,,so he actually saved me 1200.00 by not selling them to me at what i offered.Maybe i should say thanks Karson.
Since I started this thread, I'd like to give an update. Shortly after posting on this forum, I sent Karson another offer for 7 cards (4 SGC-96 and 3 SGC-92) from the 1961-62 Fleer basketball set in order to upgrade my SGC registry set. I made a fair offer of 85% of the most recent PSA SMR price guide. After not getting a response for around 4 days, I heard from Karson who accepted my offer. The great part about these cards is that all 7 are the only ones in that grade on the SGC population report so I was not going to be able to get them elsewhere. After I sent out the cashiers check, I got a call from Karson to discuss delivery and the removal of these cards from the Stuckemeyer registry set so I can add the cards to mine once I received them. I must so that he was cordial, polite, and cooperative and I won't hesitate making another offer when I get some extra money to spend. I realize that my starting this thread brought out some negative remarks about Karson so perhaps this posting will balance out the impression of him a little bit.
