Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>The guy with the 33 Ruth, after all the emails we exchanged and his pleading ignorance, has put the darned thing back up for sale! I guess if you can't beat 'em, join 'em: <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1044167084" target=_new>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1044167084</a><BR><BR>Honestly, I really do collect cards.

Posted By: <b>John</b><p>Dont you think $2 is a little high just to ship one card? You should have put this card in a PRO holder instead of the Gehringer(funny,good job by the way) ......seriously,I would buy it but im looking for a Larry Corcoran T206,could you make me one of those?.....Thanks,John<BR>P.S. GED stands for good enuff' diploma?<BR>

Posted By: <b>Scott Forrest</b><p>E-bay made it clear to me that they couldn't care less if this guy sold a reprint as a "could be real" even thought he bought it as a reprint (the 33 Goudey). I'm stating point-blank that my card's a reprint (and it is - I made two!), so they would be real hypocrites if they pull my auction. Hopefully there's no law against sounding like you're from West Virginia. I know,most of these guys are from Kentucky, but I suspect they migrated...

Posted By: <b>Lee Behrens</b><p>I thought my $1.50 bid was going to be enough, but someone sure wants this one of a kind card.<BR><BR>Hey, maybe we'll see this card in Topps T206 reprint set and than the winner might really have something!!!<BR><BR>I guess all we can do is try to keep all people on the board informed of these reprints.<BR><BR>Thanks for making my addiction a much happier experience.<BR><BR>By the way when your done with your Hooked On Phonics I know some people that could use it.<BR><BR>Lee

Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>...I also recently found a very confused "cross-eyed" Honus card. I think it was fine before my dog started chewing it (she found it underneath a very old fire hydrant).

Posted By: <b>Tom</b><p>as a card-carrying member of the great bluegrass state of Kentucky, I resemble the fact that you're dogging all those reprinters! Only our buddy Btuttle is a KY boy. I would assume he's a University of KY fan, not a Louisville fan like myself. Anyway, funny thing. I always wanted to do something like that but just didn't. Glad someone did.......

Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>If I ever needed one last really expensive card for a set and couldn't afford it, I would consider commissioning Tuttle to make me one. By the way, I love Kentucky and have visited there several times - I have a friend in Lexington who occasionally drags me to that awful stadium in nearby Cincinnati!

Posted By: <b>HalleyGator</b><p>The only thing worse than a card forger is a QUITTER who ends his auctions early just because he sold his rare card to some Swiss Banker with oodles of jack!!!

Posted By: <b>Lee Behrens</b><p>I had made a decision to stop buying Christmas presents for my family to buy this one of a kind card. I got notice this morning the auction had been cancelled. I guess Mom will get her entertainment center.<BR><BR>You thought Grinch Stole Christmas, Scott almost did the same.<BR><BR>Happy Holidays,<BR><BR>Lee
