Or the time someone sent me a lovely OHW team only for them to selloptape the figures to the inner box so they didn't move around.
I live safe in he knowledge that these people will be weeded out by a process of natural selection.
Current spares: Brescia x2 light blue inner, white outer, PMs please if you can help.

I had that with a rugby set a few years, totally ruined.

One thing I hate is when folk put items in a thin padded envelope and expect them to survive the mail system
