Not that this wasn't painfully obvious, but still:

Let me be the first to tear your head off for outing this auction!

Don't you just love to see the following in the item description:

I FOUND THIS CARD IN AN ESTATE THAT I BOUGHT OUT LAST YEAR AND WAS THRILLED TO HAVE FOUND THIS PACKED AWAY!

That sentence usually just jumps out and bites you. It says caveat emptor all over it.

Wow, the seller changed the auction a little bit. It used to be a $500 starting bid and now it's just over a hundred bucks.

I highly doubt this was found in an estate. It seems like there is nothing left that hasn't been reprinted.

When I informed him that his card was a fraud, here was his response:

"WELL I DONT SEE ANYWHERE IN MY AUCTION WHERE I AM COMMITTING FRAUD. MAYBE IF YOU HAD A JOB YOU COULD AFFORD THE CARDS YOU SECRETLY WANT! THANKS FOR LOOKING ANYWAY."

He's on to me....

Jeff,

What? He made no reference to his stellar 95.8 percent feedback?

I asked him the following:

If you're not sure whether it's a reprint, then why a Buy It Now price of $1,000? Doesn't that imply that you're selling this as authentic? If I purchase it and send it to a grading service and it comes back as a reprint, will you refund the purchase price? Thanks.

Rob, I'm guessing you may be waiting a while for a response to that one.

File that question under "R" for "Rhetorical."
