Yes when I told him it was bad I think he was a bit fustrated where he bought it from. Like I told him they even had age spots on the front put in , and that was a hard thing to do. That was one reason I wanted to look at it just to see... Sad but on to the next one!

Darn repros. Glad you're able to return it without hassle.

Just got these in and I'm really liking them. Would like to pick up the Robinson boys and Powell someday too if anyone has any they'd be willing to sell.

As much as I have warned collectors about reproductions, I have paradoxically come to learn that my two pinback books, one on baseball and one on boxing, are contributing to their occurrence. Most recently I am seeing it in boxing pins. They lift the image of a pin straight from my book, and then fashion a reproduction out of it. Through photo-editing techniques they remove surface blemishes and even correct for an original pin being somewhat off-center.

If I had to do it all over again, I would somehow try to present images of the pins in a way that decreased the likelihood that a reproduction could be created from it. When I told this to a professional photographer, I was told there are now more effective methods to overcome deterrents to altering photographic images than there are ways to impose them. The reverse of a pin is more diagnostic of its authenticity than the front. There is also no substitute for knowledge born of experience.

As a little of a follow up on the Willie Mays Pin it did take ebay to get involved in the refund as the seller after a number of emails just never replied to the refund payment. When ebay contacted me about the pin I did have to state that it was a (Fake) or reproduction made from the original. These pins are being reproduced by a person on ebay going by PINZPLUS. To his credit he does sell them as stated reproductions but it people who are now taking them and trying to pawn them off as originals. Now the original is a 2 1/4 inch in size and the one that was bought was 1 3/4 inch in size. Now that would throw up a red flag to most pin collectors but in the world of pin collecting there are different versions coming up once in awhile that do turn out to be the real thing! A case in point Thanks to a board member is this Don Mueller pin. It is 1 3/4 inch in size and with this style pin one would assume that it would be 2 1/4 inch in size. (For the record the Mueller is the real deal) But the Mays 1 3/4 pin was a reproduction. I took a chance just because on the outside chance that it was 1 3/4 inch in size. I can tell you that that mays pin was cheaply made , very thin, had a very small collet edge and really didnt look like it was vintage. Funny thing the age spots seemed to be put on before the pin was covered.. Here is a scan of the real 2 1/4 mays along side of the 1 3/4 mueller..

I'm looking for a Milw. Braves Pin that's not especially rare.... it just continually eludes me. Whenever I take a break from ebay, it's available, and whenever I'm tuned in, it's not. Anyway, it is pictured below...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1940-039-s-5...p2047675.l2557


This one sold for $14, which was pretty cheap. There is another one currently in Mears, which is priced at $100. The next bid (with the BP) would take the price over $130 (which is utterly ridiculous).

Bottom line.... I'll pay up to $70 if someone here wants to sell theirs. No ribbons/charms needed. It's typically a $25 - $40 Pin.

Thanks for indulging me

Default Real or Repo?

Don't think the easel back was on the original. Can anyone confirm?
