I don't know if anyone knows this guy, but he did once appear in a tournament report that Randy Buehler wrote, so many he runs in someone's circles.  (Cite: http://archive.wizards.com/sideboard/article.asp?x=GPPITT00/944finals)

Basically, Ben ran an eBay store under the name CommonsUncommonsRares for awhile.  At least, he was the payee for money you spent at that store, so I assume it was his.  I use the past tense because the store recently imploded and got yanked off eBay.  It looks like all of his preorders for Oath of the Gatewatch (including my own!) went unfullfilled and he walked away with any money that has not been yanked back by eBay yet.   (Cite: http://feedback.ebay.ph/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=commonsuncommonsrares&ftab=AllFeedback&myworld=true&rt=nc)

Thing is, he's always been a reliable retailer before.  Anyone know what happened to him?  Personal tragedy?  I think I found his Twitter account (soupy_george?), and there's no word there of any kind of crisis.  Did he just bail with the cash?

No idea what happened, but I am a victim as well.  Still waiting on a dispute result from PayPal. ..
