Default New spin on Unknown Ebay listings

This one is known, but still sports a Ruthian price tag:

I block all cards listed as “rp” - “reprint” and “unknown”

If a seller is listing cards as unknown in the description I just block them completely.

It’s a everyday occurrence unfortunately on eBay

The seller has 'reprint' as a specification in his listing, so the fact that he lists it as Known in the title captured my attention, since he is in a sense sneakily acknowledging that he is aware that this is a reprint, despite having the card priced as if it were authentic.

Bad bad human.

If you remove RP from your searches that also might weed out real photo....which I collect.

As for this seller, he is in the maroon aka moron family of sellers.

Excuse me folks....100% postive feed back.
Shipping under $5.00
Could be a “reprint”, but perhaps, not.
“Not grade from any company”.....

And this other item from him...
https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-Bab...wAAOSwuG1chJSx

Known sellen has RP.

Seems legit.

I've reported dozens if not hundreds of listings to ebay over the years...cards and memorabilia. To date, none have been removed. Never been contacted for more information. The sellers to this day are still selling the same illegal crap.

So I decided to post a tweet to @askebay. I asked why they never doing anything about the counterfeit/trademark/IP violating items I report. And nearly immediately I rec'd this response...This is the actual copy/paste:

Be assured that we want to keep the site a safe place & we don't allow sellers to list counterfeit items on our site. If you see any suspicious listings, please report them from the listing.


I guess this keeps their conscience clean? Not sure it would legally protect them though.

But they probably know the leagues don't give a shit either (I've tried them too...not even a response) so low risk.

I'll keep trying...eventually, hopefully the flint sparks a flame.
