Default war_eagle_vintage maybe Battlefields twin?

war_eagle_vintage has HUGE selection of raw gems but looks eerily similar to battlefield. Any chance these are legit or Battlefield scamming in a different account.

Wow. Good bet. She's from Alabama, right? The War Eagle reference is telling (as are the photoshopped pics and overly embellished descriptions).

Good catch. In the feedback war-eagle has left for others, the listing's titles seem to match perfectly to battlefields.

https://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISA...rchInterval=30


Their shipping "polices" seem to match up to battlefields also. Same blue background and no back scans, like battlefield.

Coincidentally, ebay is running an offer where if you list/sell 500 items before Nov 18, there is a 20 percent discount on FVF....maybe trying to take advantage of this promo.

Love the back story though.

Great catch, definitely may be the same. War Eagle is Auburn's battle cry, no? And Battlefield is from Alabama? Larry, you are a regular inspector gadget!

Appears that all stuff listed in their store is certainly TPG worthy...so why push it raw if not photo-shopped?

Default New listings from seller:

.I just checked out the new stuff listed last night and if these are all legitimate holdings , there should be heavily-armed security all around that home....museum-quality jaw-dropping cards , no back scans , virtually identical descriptions except for the name change in the first line.....this should be fun to watch....I'll take the Cobb and one of the Gehrigs....

It's going to be a bloodbath of returns when the buyers find out they have been ripped off. This Battlefield ID will get hosed up with negatives just like the other one. I don't know where Karma is for this seller but it has to be around the corner. No one can do that much bad stuff for so long and not have bad luck. I certainly wish them the worst ...

I do have to admit the player quality is, dare I say, BREATHTAKING!! Now if only the green Cobb would show.

..outside of opening a brand new Topps pack in the fall of 1952 , I have never before seen that kind of unslabbed quality as in those scans..they are artists...
