The older I get, the more impatient I am getting. For instance: I recently won an Ebay auction for a 250+ count of 1975 Topps, that included not 1 but 2 George Brett RCs. One of course was not in very good shape and the other was totally amazing. There were a lot of other stars too as you will see.
My problem is that the seller only sent 177 cards which 17 were lesser conditioned doubles (granted one of them was Brett). 17 dupes is not a problem, I was clearly expecting over 250 cards plus the dupes mentioned. I contacted the seller, he apologized for his miscounting the cards and asked how he could make it right. I asked him what else he had. He messaged me back telling me what he had, so I responded back letting him know that the 1976 were of interest. He then followed that rsponse with a message letting me know that I should check out what he just listed on Ebay. Long story short (so we can look at some of those cards).....6 days of messaging, but still hasn't offered me anything to make it square. After, looking at the cards I show you here, let me know what you would do.
Outside of the key cards (and most of them were included), and the doubles the rest of the cards were EX-MT, I mean beautiful 1975s. No I didn't scan them due to volume just take my word for it.
These are some of the doubles, even a some of them are in pretty nice shape.
That's the dupes.
BTW here are the numbers I got:

Obviously there are a lot of high numbers there. So my dilemma regardless of what I paid for them, it isn't what was listed. Again, what would you do.
All of the single scanned cards (above and below) carry a high Beckett value of at least $10.00 for NM condition.
Not perfect, but VERY VERY nice.
Now, I do have some of the other key cards (no Ryan though) and combined with what I already have in 1975s, this 250+ was going to have me way across mid-field towards completion. UGH! I am pleased with the cards I got and condition was better than I expected albeit the one Brett was said to be NM, but I knew it wasn't (I figured EX-MT) when I hit the buy it now button. I am more disappointed in the fact that apx. 100 cards were shorted. I contacted the seller, and after back and forth everyday for a week now. I'm starting to get the feeling, you know...
Am I being impatient? The seller is new to Ebay (only had a 2 for feedback) that is scary all by itself, but if I leave them a negative it will pretty much crush his rating for sometime.
