RE: Any favorite Ebay tape-buying stories?

Of about 280 tapes in my collection, a full 69 have come from ebay, or about 25%. 33 of those are two-track tapes, most (but not all) purchased prior to 2005 when prices were quite affordable. I would say I've purchased about a dozen tapes that were defective or unsatisfactory for one reason or another: B sonics (or worse), rippled tape, missing music at the beginning, mediocre performance, etc. I've resold the few tapes I didn't like, fully tested and accurately described. In all cases of defective tapes, the seller has given me a refund, often with coaxing, unfortunately. So generally, my experience buying tapes on ebay has been positive.
