  1. I can't remember who did the research, but I recall reading about the emotional attachment shoppers will get from over analyzing a purchase. Essentially if they are trying to decide between option A, B, and C, even though they conclude option B is best for them, they may not make a purchase at all because they've subconsciously become attached to A and C as well through all the research and saying "no" to those options doesn't feel right. That's the short version of it and I'm certain I saw it more than a few times in my old retail days of musical equipment. There's a whole bunch of info out there on behavioral finance (spending) and how to help a client work through it, not become paralyzed by indecision, and preserve your own business development.
  2. Wait, what? http://www.ebay.com/...=item3374ae9e68
  3. Also, the other Wiz gloves were being sold from Florida. This seller appears to be in the Southwest. Totally different sellers.
  4. Interesting find on Craigslist in my area: http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/spo/2866931145.html
  5. Sorry JR, I wasn't trying to sound like I was calling you out. I understand you weren't endorsing his story. Didn't mean to blur any lines. This type of thing really bothers me. It happens with musical gear on Ebay too. A lot of fake vintage drums and guitars and without avid and pro-active collectors, there would be a lot more.
  6. ^ He posted on the PSHG page that the gloves came out great. Then we he got called out about his first Ebay listing, he deleted his posts there. An honest mistake, not knowing what you have is one thing. To purposefully order something to resemble pro-stock and then represent it as such for sale is outright fraud and makes him a liar. Calling someone out for what they are is not fraud. It's accountability.
  7. That's the same guy who was/is trying to sell his custom Franchise's as pro-stock. Total douche.
  8. Here we go again with this guy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/WARRIOR-LUXE-pro-stock-return-IIHF-BELARUS-A-KOSTITSYN-hockey-gloves-/300662253219?pt=U_Hockey_Fan_Shop&hash=item4600dde6a3
  9. Same seller as above. Check out this baseball bat. I don't think it's regulation. http://www.ebay.com/itm/HAMMER-EASTON-MDL-SK2-34-IN-30-OZ-BASEBALL-BAT-/330684858664?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cfe5a8128
  10. He also got called out and flamed on the PSHG Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=279303458800346&set=a.138176942912999.27596.132507483479945&type=3&theater
  11. Do these look legitimate to you guys? The liners and palms made me wonder. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Bauer-Total-One-NHL-Pro-Stock-Return-Ottawa-Senators-Hockey-Gloves-Mens-14-/120854233261?pt=U_Hockey_Fan_Shop&hash=item1c237940ad
  12. "Retail would be a great business, if it weren't for the people."
  13. Thanks for the input. I was thinking it was bootleg based on the price.
  14. Looks a little sketchy to me. http://www.ebay.com/...528954350692403
  15. I thought all logo decals were contoured?
  16. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pro-Stock-Warrior-Hockey-Gloves-Detroit-Redwings-Dan-Corso-/320764363740?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4aaf0bc3dc I checked and couldn't find any record of Dan Corso playing for the Red Wings. I'm thinking these are from his AHL or overseas playing time.
  17. Whether I'm buying hockey gear, shop tools, musical gear, etc., I typically ask if there's a package or combo special. When I started hockey last year, I told the co-owner (who fitted my skates) that I wasn't sure I was going to go "all in" just yet. I mentioned I wanted to get gloves and skates. He said he'd give me 10% off if I bought them together. Sold.
  18. I understand your reasoning but respectfully disagree. For security purposes, I keep a low purchase allowance on my debit card. I know other people do not do the same. Charge cards are different and have different financial protections. Either way, I have access to my financial resources and can cover a "no checks" policy if needed.
  19. Non-hockey related retail store I used to work at had check approval but the store owner had a policy that the check processing fee had to be paid in cash by the customer. You simply can't roll it into the amount of the check due to it perpetually affects the amount the check would need to be. Interesting side note, I was part of a discussion with some retailers (non-hockey) about implementing a PayPal checkout option in-store. I'll comeback and update if anything develops.
  20. So I emailed the seller and asked him exactly what "Shipping based on ACTUAL cost from Phila PA to YOUR location & WILL BE EXTRA!" means. His reply: "That means shipping is the cost from phila pa to your location.. NOT what Ebay is putting up.. How can Ebay put up a shipping price when they don't know where its going? - indypace78185i" My reply back this morning: "The shipping calculator is actually very accurate. It does "know" where the package is going since I'm signed in, it knows my location. If you've put the package dimensions and weight info in when you listed the pants, then the shipping will be what it ends up saying it'll be. The amount changes for each user (bidder) based on their location. The amount Ebay is displaying is based on the info you entered about the package, where the bidder is (since only signed-in and registered bidders can actually bid), and the type of shipping the bidder wants." We'll see.
  21. Had something happen like that 2 weeks ago. The other team had 2 kids around 15-16 and showing us all their awesome moves. When someone stood one of them up he started hacking and slashing. He ended up "punching" one of my teammates in the side of the helmet (glove push). Ref gave him the minor, but in our league it's supposed to be an Game Misconduct. During the handshake after the game one of them mumbled "F@*k Off." Regarding: "Weren't we all 19 once..." No. I started last fall @ the youngster age of 40. :-)
