I Knew Shipping Costs Have Been Increasing But Wowza!!!

All of us collectors know that shipping prices have been steadily increasing over the past few years.  And sometimes the price can vary greatly depending on the shipping company.  Just this week I sold off most of my brothers old collection of complete sets which amounted to over 80 pounds (36kg) and one major shipper was going to charge $99 while another major shipper was charging $60.  But I have to wonder if this ebay seller is really needs this much for shipping six low dollar cards?

Holy Shipping

Thanks For Bidding. Your Prize...An Empty Box!!!

Ran across this strange auction the other day.  Not sure why someone would sell empty boxes.  I always recycle mine.  Not sure why someone would buy empty boxes unless they did not read the title of the auction...and did not read the item description.  Or perhaps Topps has a promotion going where you can redeem Topps Heritage box UPC's for some special set, but I have not heard of anything like that for 2018 Topps Heritage.  Very strange unless I'm missing something.
