Make believe card and a make believe grade. But, hell, he does add "God Bless" so must be legit. Mark of a great seller.

Are people really, really that stupid that they would spend $$$ on the garbage he has for sale? PT Barnum was right . . .

I know this exact user on eBay. It’s infuriating. I’ve reported them to eBay countless times. The cards this guys makes up are ridiculous.

Also spent some time reviewing all his “positive” feedback. Half of it all comes for about 10 different users so I don’t know how he’s managing to get all the feedback and not go broke paying fees for completed sales.

The current high bid is $2.25. While that may still be a bit high, it's not like some of the T206 Wagner reprints that have sold for hundreds of dollars in the past on eBay.

Those are some of the shiniest "vintage" cards I've ever seen...

Every bidder is a private listing - bidders' identities protected. A good indication that his bidders are probably as real as his cards.

"Condition: Like New"

Yeah, because it is brand new, certainly not vintage.

Fake aside, it’s quite a good looking card. Perhaps he should quit selling his 2 dollar fakes and give some competition to the production designers at the comd companies.

I sent a message on the Gehrig asking what year it was from, just out of curiosity as to what response I'd get....I got back: "I don't know what year it's from"...

Default Gehrig card

I am loving the terms in the description, so helpful to the neophyte collector. Because it is so helpful, it needs to be fully read "Prior To, During, and After bidding":

*The Listed "Value" on the sticker, is a "GRADED" Value. If you are familiar you already know, if you are not, then GRADED cards by Third Parties are valued at more than a regular NON graded base card due to condition, etc. they always demand a premium because of a typically limited population number of that condition, grade, etc. You can see my Ebay page for more on Graded Card Values. For example if you have a car that you purchased for $10,000, and then 30 years later..because there aren't many in that condition as yours, it "appraises" for $30,000.

* I have no affiliation with any of the third party grading companies. They each have different standards, etc. I cannot guarantee the card you purchase from me would receive or be graded the same way it has in this auction listing.

* I will tell you all I possibly know about it, in the listing. If you can't find an answer to your question in this description, then chances are I do not know either.

* PLEASE READ ALL OF THE DESCRIPTION, Prior To, During, and After Bidding!!! Do no wait until after you won the auction, or it's over to ask a question, or ask a question that the answer appears here in the description. PLEASE LOOK AT ALL PHOTOS, DESCRIPTIONS, ETC.

* Due to all of the reasons listed above, I have a NO RETURN POLICY! NO REFUNDS, RETURNS, EXCHANGES, ETC.!! NO EXCEPTIONS, NO MATTER THE REASON

He admits most of the cards are from estate finds, but marks them at reprints. He must be going to the wrong estates. You have to respect that all of the cards are gem mint

This is probably my favorite from the list: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Babe-Ruth-Y...QAAOSw0gFaxYXz

Only $199.99 for an authentic slice of wood!

If you read a lot of his listings (which I do). You’ll see him explain away the unheard of grading company as “one of the first grading companies that aren’t around anymore”. Then in the next posting see that same company grading a Shohei Ohtani rookie as a gem mint 10. It really is something. It makes me really question eBays entire process that they cannot weed out such a clear fraudster.

You probably should have asked him what day it was from.

I'd like to think there's a special place in "ebay hell" for those cheaters. One where they have 100s of watchers, bids and end all retractions and non payers.
