Take a look at the guys feedback. He has 2 recent negatives and they were both under $2 sales!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

In all seriousness, if you fall for something like this then you deserve it. That auction has SO many things wrong with it and his feedback jumps out at you like a beacon.

It is more funny than scary. Its just plain dumb really. The bidders have to be messing around or maybe he is just bumping the bids up.

Crazy!

Peace, Mike

This is his description:

"This was given back to me as 'Questionable Authenticity' from PSA.

I was told from another heavy collector to send this in again to another grader such as Beckett. It is pretty beat up but at this point I am giving up on it."


So......when he says "heavy collector" does he mean weight wise? :):eek:

I'm offended if he means that! :)

Peace, Mike

The green Cobb he sold "looks and smells old". LOL.
He really put that in the description. Sold for 31 bucks.

From my experience, "heavy collector" doesn't narrow the field much. :D

It is not so much the card but the number of bidders. He may be shilling but some of those bids have to be real. This is why some cards have skyrocketed in price, especially the Mantle. Classic example about a fool and his money.

I thought "smells old" was one of the grades that PSA uses, like they use "Authentic." Smells old on a flip would give me confidence in that card.;):D:):eek:
And I thought autographs had their problems. At least autograph guys never talk about the smell. ;):D:):eek:
