From the description:

Please pay no mind to the shipping price indicated!!! This for LOCAL pick up only!!! As usual, ebay has made changes that do not work, and shipping is one of them. They make no provision for local pick-up which this item is.

Well that makes more sense! Lol Except eBay does have local shipping option. I will admit that I am liking eBay less as time goes on. It's almost to the point that I won't buy there anymore.

This explains media mail. https://www.usps.com/send/media-mail.htm
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

USPS = post office, and media mail is preprinted material such as magazines, etc. Also a slow option, it goes on the truck when there is room. If the truck is full, it has low priority, so media mail waits.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
