Default Probstein Ebay Rollout

Over the last day or so, Probstein has unleashed a hurricane of high value cards on an unsuspecting Ebay following, including '14 Cracker Jacks of Cobb and Jackson. No auctions that I can see only BIN's at steep prices. Still, if you got an early tax refund, and the better half doesn't know about it yet, it can't hurt to look. Right?

I had seen the same thing last week, and some turned to auctions after. Whole lotta eyeballs/shilling accounts to keep up the watch count

At this point my appetite for high value cards is at an all time low. I really question whether I can trust anything in this hobby. It's not a new revelation, but such a bummer.

I saw them yesterday but just looked again today and they all seem to be gone.

I feel your pain, my friend. I certainly have changed my buying in response to the infested waters.

Not that I am a high value card purchaser, I'm far from it, but this sure has opened my eyes significantly.
