Update Sellers To Be Concerned About

Cards purchased as reprints making their way back to the auction block are common, many times you can trace the history of the card by looking at the buyers feedback from sellers. I also like to look at what the seller has been buying and selling, which can be done by doing an advanced search.

The thing that bothers me and other collectors most is the way eBay has it's rules set up. They allow sellers to imply that the card is authentic when in fact it was purchased as a reprint from another eBayer. They merely have to say that the card is not graded an so they are selling at as a reprint. However in the rest of their description they are allowed to say whatever they like. It was given to me by my grandfather, I found it cleaning my uncles attic, these are a few of the many stories you'll read when you see these cards. Again the first question anyone buying hard to find high grade vintage cards should ask themselves is " If the seller thinks the card maybe authentic then why aren't they getting it graded" . This alone should be enough to make you suspicious.
