Yeah, that Cobb was really tempting until I saw who was selling it. It's designated as MK, but looking at the card, it's looks as clean as a whistle. Figured it would be coming back on the market sooner rather than later...

I think its funny how people like to look at historical pricing VCP as binding.

This exact same card with same seller in same type of auction sold for:

$4050 March 7
$3650 March 21
$2939 April 2
$1800 April 30


Hmmm, im going to take a wild guess the card will fall below VCP average even though its a super centered card...and will also fall below $1800.....

(the listing does say authentic now and the card was trimmed)

Correct me if i am wrong, but with this new listing, i dont think this listing is any less accurate than the average ebay seller listing., assuming no markings on it ..

Of course it's fraudulent. She knows damn well it's trimmed but is avoiding saying so with that carefully worded BS. And equally of course ebay isn't going to do a damn thing about her. Or about any other major seller. But in the meantime they will harass occasional sellers for including contact information or hinting at off ebay transactions in messages -- while major sellers have their contact information right there in their listings.

If she came outright and said it is trimmed, what do you think it is worth(what it will sell for)?

Curious to hear peoples opinions on that.

I actually don't mind this listing at all. Looks NM, if graded will come back only authentic, measures short. Aside from not specifically saying it's trimmed, she has told the truth. You will get a nice looking green cobb that will end up in a PSA A altered holder. Bid accordingly.

Unless the scan has been photo shopped and the card doesn't actually look NM.

I think it would be tough to gauge without having the card in hand. Keep in mind it's very likely a photoshopped image in addition to the trimming.

I love some of the feedback comments... "Card clearly trimmed. Horrific seller. Zero ethics. Wasn't raised well"

I'd place bets this was from someone on this board!! Wasn't raised well

These ungraded Battlefield cards do not register on VCP, do they?

Other than that Mrs. Lincoln how was the play. Carefully crafted bullshit.

Most, maybe 99% of her listings are total BS. This one at least she is clearly saying the card won't grade and measures short. Apparently after it was sold and returned 4 times. But if I were bidding on this card I would know what I was getting from the description. This is unusual from the battlefield listings I have seen in the past that are clearly designed to deceive bidders.
