Update Sellers To Be Concerned About

We have written about this type of scam before, but as fast as prices change in the hobby so does the memory of would be collectors trying to catch the brass ring. This weekend seller jankensells has decided to list a very rare Topps 1952 Mickey Mantle #311 graded PSA Gem Mint 10
Update Items Removed Seller NARUed

In his Q&A about the item he claims that the PSA Certification number is 02006104.


For those unfamiliar with Vintage cards there are two PSA Gem Mint 10's of this card . What the seller has not told us is that the PSA certifcation number on the card he claims to have purchased from a card dealing buddy belongs to the card owned by Marshall Fogel

Is this a coincedence? Or is this guy a close friend of Mr. Fogel? I would think that if this card was really being sold by Mr. Fogel it would make it's way to Soethby's, Mastronet, or one of the other fine and reputable auction houses in this world. Of note the seller claims " I am Not a Card Collector so I don't know much about Cards and this Card in General!" but a quick search of his other items shows that he is also selling these.

1962 Topps 537 Pete Rose PSA NM 8

The rest of our list includes:

Seller: blueleaf62 Earlier this week sold an 86 Jordan Item# 5249483471 for $599.00. Now comes back with this one and adds the usaual disclaimer "1986 FLEER MICHAEL JORDAN ROOKIE RC MINT POSSIBLE BGS 8.5 PSA 9 NO WORRIES ABOUT GETTING THE REAL DEAL HERE, CHECK THE SCANS AND KNOW YOU ARE GETTING WHAT YOU PAY FOR. ALTHOUGH I HAVE TO SELL AS A REPRINT TO ABIDE BY e-BAY's RULES THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT IT IS. JUDGE FOR YOURSELF !!!"

Seller: mushin42 Says to us " You are bidding on a 1952 topps mantle card.it is not it the best of condition about a good to very good.it has off centering and rounded corners.Also a one inch crease .Still an attractive card.will be sold as is.this card will be sold as a reprint even though it does not mention this anywhere.this card was purchased with a lot of of life magazines from an eastern ontario collection.it was and still is in a srew holder." I think what he means is that the holder of this card will get screwed.

I always guarantee my cards, but cannot guarantee this one because I don't know it's orgin and that's the only reason.

Searcing for rc car and truck can be tedious but posts like yours help to re-energize me and keep me looking; even though Update Sellers To Be Concerned About is not an exact match for rc car and truck. I will continue my search and hope to find more gems like this. Keep up the good work.
