Another One Bites The Dust

As the lure for a fast buck compels more and more sellers another one has taken a fall.

1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie #311 notice that this was cancelled and relisted of which that one is an Invalid Item.

1951 Bowman Willie Mays Rookie

1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig. If not for the riveted holder the first impression that someone might get is that it could be legit. Why he even states "The card has very good color, i believe that it was kept in a scrap book over the years because there is a stain on the back."


A quick search of his buying habits show that this seller bought the following 1933 GOUDEY LOU GEHRIG and looks exactly like the one he was trying to auction off as being real.

Apparently that was enough evidence for eBay as they acted rather quick on this one and this seller was NARU'ed.

In my opinion this seller who by reading his feedback history is more than likely rather young and saw that others were doing this and just followed the crowd. I say that he is young by reading this neutral left "we rec email from the buyers father he said to relist son had no money to pay" and can only hope that a lesson has been learned.


As of this writing alot of the people whom we have reported on this site have been NARU'ed

To date we have written about 15 bogus sellers with 10 gone. Some will probably come back under a different id but a least for now the following are gone.

1. akanugget
2. blaclabl
3. themike34 (Mentioned In The Above Article)
4. monty7198
5. hose4321
6. slycardbuyout
7. bigdaddyscard2005
8. bigchiefmike2004
9. bigchiefmike2005
10. tandexpresscardshoppe (One Of The Big Ones)

-----------And Still Another Seller Has Been NARU'ed------------
