Check Out Clyde's Cards (p4)

I was out of town for work yesterday, so I caught the notice for the completion of processing on my latest submission to CheckOutMyCards.com on my Blackberry and only just now got the cards priced and into the system. The email read as follows:


We finished processing your shipment of 49 cards, Batch #427993. 1 cards are being returned, and 48 cards have been added to your 'DaClyde' account. $0.20 of your store credit was used to cover the processing fee.

Your account now has $15.55 of store credit.

Cards being returned are processed once a month by shipping. You will be notified by the Shipping Manager as to options for shipping.

Attached is a receipt of all the cards we added. If you find any mistakes, please click on the corresponding "Wrong Data?" link on the Manage Inventory page, or click on the "Notify Us" link on any Card Details page.

In order for people to purchase these cards, you need to go to the following page and set your asking prices.


Price changes take effect immediately, but the search results are 1 hour delayed. Approximately one hour after you set your prices, you will be able to find your cards for sale here.


If you have any questions, we would be more than happy to help.

Attached was a spreadsheet detailing all of the cards they added to my inventory.
Comparing their list against what I sent, the card that is coming back is the 1995 Takara Yakult Swallows Kazuhisa Ishii card. I very carefully made sure that every card I sent them this time was listed in Beckett's online price guide, and I also sent in my customary itemized list of every card in the lot. But I'll let this one slide, as the Takara sets don't make any outward reference to what they are (and the meticulously itemized list in English didn't seem to help them).

Again, they completely ignored that list and mis-listed several of the cards. All of the 2000 BBM Diamond Heroes cards were listed simply as "BBM Japan" and the one 2001 BBM Preview card of Kazuo Matsui was listed as "2001 BBM Japan #P73 - Kazuo Matsui PREVIEW". Ditto for improperly listing a 2000 BBM Yomirui Giants card of Hideki MAtsui. I went ahead and priced everything and submitted correction notes to all of the improperly listed cards.

So let that be a lesson. If you ever choose to submit any Japanese cards any more obscure than pre-2003 BBM base sets or pre-2001 Calbee base sets, expect to spend a lot of time repeatedly sending in corrections until you wear them down and they actually make the corrections (they still haven't corrected a Tuffy Rhodes card I send in back in September 09) or expect to see the cards back in your mailbox in about 8-12 weeks. I'm completely baffled that they've correctly listed the 1999 Broccoli Seibu Lions sets, which have absolutely no outward indication of the manufacturer each time, but botch the blatantly named BBM Diamond Stars!

On the plus side, I've sold a few more cards in the last couple of weeks, so at least the site is working for me on some level.

To see my latest additions, check out my COMC store here:


By default, I think it sorts by "recently added", so you should see all the latest additions. Lots of Ichiro, Big & Little Matsui as well as a wide range of American oddball cards & stickers. I'll probably be sending in another submission later this week.


Well, I can't complain too much with the results, less than an hour after getting all the cards posted, the 2000 BBM Diamond Star of Ryota Igarashi sold for $4!
