Update Sellers To Be Concerned About

Old wax, something most of wish we had. Most of us who collect wish we had socked away an old wax pack or ten. Unfortunately we didn't and we would love to open some today, and find a pristine Jordan Rookie or whatever other sports superstar card we like to own. It is sad to say that some people will take advantage of this fact and put together their own wax. This is yet another reason the novice or any collector needs to do their homework before plunking down their cash. Here is a prime example of what I mean. Seller subrina111002 is selling 1986 Fleer Wax Packs Item# 5233844051 These packs sell anywhere between $150 - $250 ungraded. There is a good feedback rating of 99.8%, so on the surface there is a comfort level unless you start digging. After a little searching into what the seller has been buying we came up with this. On 6/21/05 subrina purchased a 1986 Fleer was Box item# 5209636500 empty! Now that in itself should raise a little bit of a red flag but upon further invstigation we found the seller had also purchased 1986 Fleer Wrappers With Gum item# 5171826992 on 3/10/05. She also happens to be selling 1986 Fleer Basketball cards 123/132 . Now is this all coincedence? I really find hard to believe that it is.

This type of activity is happening more and more each day and it is easy to find if you take the time and look into your seller and ask questions and opinions from informed parties. This will save you the agrevation of getting ripped off. Now without further delay we bring this you weeks "Sellers To Be Concerned About".

Seller: scalp2 They tell us "1933 Goudey Gum Co. Babe Ruth #181. Purchased Mar. 5, '05 From seller who earned 110 feedback score and positives 100%. There were 23 bids on the card, which sold for $504.99". Okay so now we need to go look at what seller he bought from on or near March 5th. Well we found this on March 28th scalp finished a transaction with garybev45 who was a known seller of this type of cardboard had 110 feedback rating and is now NARUed. Notice most of garybevs transactions where private listings.
1933 Babe Ruth Goudey #181 Item# 5233488343

Seller: brumleyman Brumley is a profesional ager. By that we mean he likes to age cards himself and sell them to the public. Were once purchased they make their way back to the market place as possibly authentic. So if you are looking at any pre war items and see his name in the sellers Feedback run. He also has a grading company grade some of his other cards, which upon further inspection we found out that their phone number was listed to a private residence in Long Island. This week he offers this
1933/1934 Goudey Sports Kings With Babe Ruth item# 5231768624

Seller: evilloki1 Says " I am not an expert or and authenticator so I have to sell as a reprint" Yet is selling a PSA OJ Simpson, PSA Jerry Rice , and a PSA Joe Montana RC .

Babe Ruth Goudey #144 item# 5233754915

Seller: chino975 Has this to tell us " I found this Jordan Rookie along with several other 86-87 Fleer basketball cards in my older brothers card collection he left behind when he moved out. I know very little about basketball and Football cards and I only collect baseball cards. So to follow ebay rules I have to list this card as reprint even though it doesnt say copy or reprint on it." But a quick look at the people he has purchased cards from will show that he has done numerous transactions with notorious sellers of bad Jordans. Noteable names like ripkenhof7 sold at least 8 Jordans we know of, these being the last ones 7/21/05, 8/17/05 before we had some removed through our reporting.

1986 Fleer Jordan #57 Item# 5232745598

Seller:
ksmnkdm Says "You are looking at a Mickey Mantle topps # 200.played for the NY Yankees in 1963.these cards are not graded.the card has a flaw in the left corner." The item has a flaw okay, but it's not the corner it's the back. Now what is wrong with this picture?

A little on the white side don't you think? Since 63' Topps Backs are this color


Mantle Topps 200/1963 item# 5233604831

Till next time please remember our motto
