Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>Crooks like this illustrate the danger of letting forgers sell their cards as "old reprints". I found the transaction where he bought the fake Ruth he's selling, but not for the T206 Cobb.<BR><BR>1933 Ruth being sold: <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1036668267" target=_new>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1036668267</a><BR><BR>original Ruth purchase: <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1006849146" target=_new>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1006849146</a><BR><BR>I sent the following to him/her:<BR><BR>You bought this as a reprint from Audrey - either end this listing immediately or you will be reported to ebay for fraud.<BR><BR><BR>Thanks,<BR>Scott

Posted By: <b>Robert</b><p>Have to say though if you purchase such a card wouldn't you ask for a better scan..lol...and it's not even a good "Old Reprint". I personal didn't want it when i saw the nice snow white boarders. But it's post's like this that you find those things out....<BR><BR>Nice Spot.<BR>Robert

Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>I need to forget about these kind of people. I heard back from e-bay - they said they probably won't do anything. I copied the seller on my response to e-bay, he then made the usual threats,etc.,etc..It was a total waste of energy on my part. Time for some leftover turkey.
