For the record, I have dealt extensively with the Dutch Ebay dealer going by the i.d. of "fietsenfrans" and I've had nothing but 100% positive transactions. In fact, he has gone out of his way to help me on at least three occassions, so I highly recommend him to anyone on the CR list.
And I have also had very good luck with that Banana Brain guy also, but I think he might very well be missing a few cards out of his deck (sorry Baron, I couldn't resist).

I know of this guy but have yet to meet him............And I wish not too. I must say..............A major part of the ebay Dutch dealers are ''BAD NEW!'' As like Charles A. and a few other has already learned...............I've spent many and many hours replying to emails from others concerning these dealers, do you know him? Why do you sell to him if he's a bad dealer? I've told all of these people that I have never dealt with him nor do know him. I'f and when I do meet him, I just maight take him out for all of the fustration that he has caused me. I know where he shops on Fridays but I will stay away....................Only because I know what I would do to this guy, and I wouldn't be playing ''PATTY CAKE!''..............The best place for this guy is a rim box.
The best I can say...Don't deal with these Dutch dealers...THE...REAL...LIFE...BAD...NEWS...BEARS!
