Default Some wise poster here once told me

that if you ever spot a super deal on ebay, there's probably something wrong. Well, I was quietly tracking an E94 Cobb with a gold background and the scan was so tiny (red flag) no one was bidding on it. I had my sniper set after the seller assured me it belonged to his grandfather (oh-oh, red flag) and that he would agree to reimburse me if it came back from SGC as a fake. I thought I was going to get the deal of the year, until, tonight, the card was relisted, this time as a reprint.
If it looks like a duck, and it walks like a duck, ....yeah, I know.
The funny thing is he now says the reprint was made between 1920 and 1933. I guess I should be thankful someone told him it was a reprint and saved me a lot of time and trouble. So his grandfather owned an E94 Cobb reprint card in the 1920's and it stayed in his family for 80 years. Hmmm, sounds good to me!
