Same here. Unfortunate if the story is true, but it sounds more to me like a ploy to sell a reprint.

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

Agreed

I am with Dan on this one. Iin my experiences when people have said they are selling a reprint or believe it to be one, I believe them. When I didn't believe them I was wrong.

I've just reached the point over the years that I have absolutely zero pity for people that buy this crap. That also includes the morons bidding 46 dollars for this paperweight.

I have never dropped thousands on a blind grasp in the dark and do not plan to.

Oh I agree completely. Whether the seller is trying to use some sort of psychological ploy or not he states more than once that the card is a reprint, so I'm not sure why anyone would assume otherwise and bid on it regardless of the "quality".

I'm a miserably cynical East Coast type. I think he is basically saying this is so good you may be able to pull a heist on someone else and make a bundle.

Nothing personal but I think that is just ridiculous. You should have just stopped after your first sentence. Then at least we could be in agreement.
