RCR 171 - Shipwrecks

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting), Earl Evans, and Carrington Vanston

Topic: Shipwrecks

eBay has gotten big enough that collectors with too little space, as well as non-experts, heirs, estate sale pickers, etc. can make rare and interesting vintage computer items available to those of us who are interested in them. Being good at finding things at estate sales is not the same as being good at packing things for shipment. What’s the worst eBay/general shipping experience you’ve had?
