eBay fakes and fraud

Welcome to the auction watch page for sports memorabilia. I have chosen to create this page because in eBay's infinite wisdom, we as consumers are not allowed to post what are obvious fraudulent auctions which are taking place on that site and others on a daily basis. If you do happen to post on the sports memorabilia board there you are subject, to having your post removed and possibly having your account suspended. I will remind anyone reading on this site that what is posted is an opinion and in no way represents that sellers of items posted are selling fakes. If you are a seller that is mentioned here you are more than welcome to defend your product offering and inform the readers what makes your product geniune.

Thanks for creating this blog. eBay has removed my post about a seller who had several fake Wagner T206's on the eBay discussion board. They had been selling them on eBay, and have now been suspended thankfully. eBay has also removed several others posts warning people about the fakes and forgeries out there. There are way too many scammers out there, and not much has been done by eBay to prevent it. Apparently they don't think that anything needs to be said or done about it.

Hopefully some people who are in the market for these types of cards, and autographs find there way here first, before being taken for several hundred or thousand dollars on a potentially counterfeit card, or a forged autograph.

THANK YOU FOR THE ENLIGHTENMENT!! I STARTED TO COLLECT AGAIN WITH MY TEN YEAR OLD SON, AND NOW I'M READY TO GIVE IT UP WITH ALL THE FRAUDS AND REPRINTS..I ALMOST BOUGHT A VINTAGE CARD ON YAHOO AUCTIONS BUT REFUSED TO HONOR MY BID AFTER THE SELLER AUCTIONED OFF THE SAME CARD AGAIN A FEW DAYS LATER. YOUR WEBSITE HAS OPENED MY EYES!!
