Default Goudey R319 Ruth #144

This can be a lesson for a lot of collectors. It might be the most honest description I have seen on ebay in a while. If you have been doing this long enough you can feel the sellers pain...

Nice duplication on a PSA case, too.

I think I ran across this one a week or two ago. I agree, props to the seller.

I'm not really sure I believe him. Call me a skeptic, but that would be a good way to get people to bid on your fake card. He may just be telling a good story to lure in buyers that otherwise wouldn't give his listing the time of day.

Well, I guess it's possible. Are you working on the assumption that a potential buyer has pity for the seller or that they actually are hoping the card might somehow be real? I mean I think the guy makes it pretty clear he screwed up and that it's not authentic

I guess I feel like he's trying to say, "It's so good, you won't be able to tell it's not real. It's so good it even fooled me". This statement might make some people think they can buy it and scam someone else since it was good enough to fool this guy. Or at the very least, you can fool your friends. Wouldn't anyone else have returned it for a refund or be so mad that they destroyed it so no one else got ripped off? Here is the original pitch in his ad in case it disappears:

I BOUGHT THIS AS ORIGINAL BUT NOW
I FIRMLY BELIEVE IT TO BE A HIGHLY DECEPTIVE REPRINT
IT WILL BLOW YOUR FRIENDS MIND

I AM SELLING IT AS A REPRINT

AS IS. NO RETURNS

DO YOUR HOMEWORK,I didnt
