Where picture in the listing cuts off all four edges.

I am quite sure this seller does it on purpose too!



This seller has over 900 items listed and this is not the only one I saw with a picture like this.

While almost all of this sellers other listings show a much better full sized if not great picture.

Of all the things on Ebay to complain about and this is the best you can do?  :lol:

Come on man, with all the stuff this seller has in their store besides role-playing games do you really think they have much of a clue about what collectors expect out of a photo?  The seller is probably a forty something stay at home mom that spends a lot of time at garage sales.  The gaming stuff is probably her husband's (or ex-husband's) stuff that he doesnt have a use for any longer.  I seriously doubt that this seller chops off the edges of the books on purpose just to aggravate collectors.

And lets just say for arguments sake that the seller isnt a "stay at home" person and has their own career.  Taking almost a thousand pictures of crap to sell on Ebay takes a lot of time.  Making sure every picture is absolutely perfect is probably not high on their priority list.

:roll:

I agree about the shear number of pictures.
At least this seller makes some effort to post some picture.

However; I doubt its just a 40 something stay at home mom... male or female.
I think this seller knows better, or I would not have posted that note above.
