it's a @%##$!* reprint.
And now it's over $200 by what looks like a possible legitimate bidder.

If the seller really got that advice from eBay, which I can believe, it is a major departure from their former policy. I can't quote that policy word for word, but essentially it stated that sellers cannot disclaim knowledge of authenticity of an item listed on eBay. A few years ago, I brought that up a few years ago when eBay started giving sellers the "unknown" option along with "original" and "reprint/reproduction." My point was that the new option was at odds with their existing policy that sellers cannot disclaim knowledge of authenticity. But they never did anything about it, and I'm afraid that former policy doesn't exist any more.

I don't believe he talked to anyone at eBay.

Sold for over $200.00. Now he has another one listed.

I wish I could find a number of Cobb's at an antique store.

He also has a game used Encarnacion jersey with a "Clubhouse Attic" LOA. Looks like he is Clubhouse Attic.

It looks like it's a different card to me. Both fake as a $3 bill.

Not only that, he is offering a Letter of AUTHORIZATION. No worries there!

Recently I had high hopes that ebay was going to start getting more serious with anti-fraud efforts. I heard they were ramping up some programs they used to have. So far what I have seen hasn't been very reassuring..
This seller could probably make a living at selling fake Red Cobbs ...
