...That there is an extremely high correlation in Ebay auctions between the phrase "I don't know much about these cards", a blurry photo, and the bottom of the back of the card (where the word "reprint" would be found) having been charred. The latest example...

That is usually the standard routine for a scam - bad photo, and a "I'm no expert, blah, blah, blah" line in the description. Another good sign the card is fake is when they state boldly "Guaranteed Original, NOT a reproduction!" Also look for the line "estate sale". Almost all of the cards I've seen on ebay from "estate sales" have been reprints.

I like how this guy says "20 Years of Card Collecting" but had to go to another person to find out it is a T206 card?
