Bobby - I understand your POV. So much of eBay
is the same old crud. However, I have found that if one is persistent and checks in regularly (and has a focused search), one can find good stuff every once in a while. No argument from me, though --- it does take time. With stamp shows on hold, eBay
suddenly has more appeal. If you have a dealer (or dealers) that you have good luck with, definitely keep going to them.
