Update Sellers To Be Concerned About

As the Holidays quickly approach so will the amount of activity by fraudulent sellers on eBay and other auction sites. It is unfortunate that most of the people who will be duped , will be persons trying to buy that special collectable for a loved one. We ask readers of this blog to please report any suspicious looking auctions to the proper parties. On the right side of this page we have provided a direct link where you can report suspicious items directly to eBay. For newbie buyers please be very careful when purchasing high dollar items that are not graded by one of the major card grading companies like Professional Sports Authenticators/PSA, Beckett Grading Services/BGS/BVG, Sportcard Guaranty/SGC, Global Authentication/GAI, and KSA in Canada.

With that said we bring you our latest edition of "Sellers To Be Concerned About".

Seller: kiajdog On 11/01/05 the seller purhcased item# 8715190610 1933 Babe Ruth Goudey from seller schluba2002 who had this to say about the card " I am auctioning off my recently deceased grandfathers baseball cards, it is not graded and i can not prove the authenticity of the card due to not being graded." They now bring us the very same card with no disclaimer.

1933 Babe Ruth Goudey item #8717129139

Seller: schluba2002 Didn't we just mention them? Guess they have unlimited 33' Ruth Goudey's becuase this week they bring us the same scan and card the sold to the above seller. with the same discalimer and private feedback of 90.9% " I am auctioning off my recently deceased grandfathers baseball cards, it is not graded and i can not prove the authenticity of the card due to not being graded."

Seller: skitbatbo Sold someone a fake Mantle earlier this year and now brings us:
Lou Gehrig 1933 Goudey item #8716493244

Seller: coltun A powerseller who certainly should know better than to provide this discalimer: "This Card is being sold as is, I had a dealer look at it, and he didnt know if it was real; you be the judge"

1933 Goudey Baseball Card Lou Gehrig item #8712353142

Seller: mrsjohnson1942 Earlier in the week notonly did the seller not have private feed back but was also selling 5 Jordan Rookies that were removed by eBay. Supposedly her teenage son had collected them (24 to be exact) over the years and now she wants to sell them because at age 30 he lost interest in collecting basketball cards. If you dont buy the story once you get to the auction click on her website page where she is selling more of these bogus beauties.

I dont know if the card is real or fake, but i dont know why he would keep it if it was a fake.I found it in a box with numerous other old baseball cards."

Seller: miller6111 I wasn't aware that PSA graded a card with 2 creases and rounded corners as a NM MT 8 OC, seller has this to say " This is a great looking card.The corners are rounded a little.There are 2 creases both are about 1 inch long.There is no stains on this card.I don't know much about this card I own a pawn shop and it has made its way here.I will answer any questions I can.It has been graded so I Know it has to be an authentic"
Update Item Removed
Lou Gehrig Goudey NM/MT item #8718197394

Seller: truckparts69 As happens with most scammers they sell one fake and then get greedy and want to sell more. Who can blame them for the most part they go unchecked and are allowed to reach into your pocket. Clearly our seller here has unlimited Micheal Jordan Rookie Cards. On 11/2/05 they sold a bogus Jordan item # 8714687820 for $338.33. Nice that you can make a bunch of money selling bogus junk. This week they offer us:
1986 Michael Jordan item #8718418118

Well that's our story for this week till next time please remember our motto!

Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and club music lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about club music lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite club music lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!
