Posted By: <b>Anthony S.</b><p>So if you're looking for the T206 Magie error card and you don't like the space directly below the Piedmont insignia on the back cluttered up with talk of factory numbers and districts and states, you're in luck. And the sellers complete lack of feedback means that you, yes you, could be his very first dissatisfied customer.<br /><br />Leon, it looks like something your friend over at EBay might want to take a gander at.<br /><br /><a href="http://tinyurl.com/2ovjlo" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://tinyurl.com/2ovjlo</a>

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>Reply to my question of how he knew they were authentic:<br /><br />i took all these cards to a card dealer here in spokane and he looked at them and told me that they were and hes a reputable dealer but theres no market for thoise kinds of cards here and i will guarantee then with a money back guarantee but they are guaranteed authentic and i know the values now cause the dealer just sold me a beckett but i also know there only worth as much as the next guy will pay so they will be sold to the highest bidder<br /><br /><br />Believe me I wish there were no market for vintage cards in the Pacific Northwest as it would make my PCL buys easier.<br /><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>Isn't there a new rule instituted by ebay that doesn't allow certain key cards to be sold raw? Wouldn't the Magie qualify as one of those?

Posted By: <b>PC</b><p>Could this be an even rarer no-factory Magie error?<br /><br />I sense a new T206 survey coming!!! Wooo!

Posted By: <b>Matt</b><p>Barry - there is such a rule, but the list of cards is seemingly random and nonsensical and the Magee isn't on it. Only 2 of the 4 1933 Goudey Ruths are as well.

Posted By: <b>Dave Williams</b><p>What would happen if someone would set up a fake e bay account and bid this thing up to 10K or so, then not pay.<br /><br />Is the seller liable for the E bay fees?<br /><br />I've often dreamed of doing this.

Posted By: <b>Larry</b><p>&lt;Is the seller liable for the E bay fees?<br /><br />Absolutely and I think that "stewpdazzo" should put in a high ceiling bid immediately.<br />

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>I have just the user id you are talking about. I actually won my own 52 yogi berra card(vgex to ex) for just over $7,000 from a guy who stole my image and then got booted off ebay.<br /><br />Maybe I will put bid in

Posted By: <b>Jantz</b><p>Dave - If someone were to bid this card up high & win, but refuse to pay. All the seller has to do is file a Non-paying Bidder report and after (I think) 7 days the seller will be refunded all charges from Ebay except his initial auction entry fee. I sell some modern on Ebay & I have had to file about a dozen NPB reports in the last year. Its just a big hassle for the seller.<br /><br />Jantz<br />

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>That is correct Jantz. The funny part is when a seller's own shill (himself) ends up winning.

Posted By: <b>Jason L</b><p>I got winded reading that seller's response to the question in the post above!<br />(Yes, in case you are wondering, I read everything out loud, that is why I got winded).<br /><br />I think scam sellers fail to use any punctuation simply because they are also stealing computer time at internet cafes and are always in a hurry and looking behind their backs to see if they are about to get kicked off the computer before they have time to properly type...
