Classic. Never ceases to amaze me. People like this need to have their own reality show.

Along those same lines, I came across this the other day:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/WYATT-EARP-...p2047675.l2557

And he also had this one for sale:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/ONLY-KNOWN-...QAAOSw5utad3C~

He notes: “NEW REPRINT OF ANTIQUE CABINET CARD - 1ST REPRINT EVER PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC”. Funny thing, he's just assuming that he's miraculously come across the photos of these famous people (so it's not even images of who he THINKS they are) and HE IS ONLY SELLING REPRINTS OF THEM...ONE FOR $10,000 AND THE OTHER FOR $2,000. LOL

C`mon Rob, it is the "1ST REPRINT EVER PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC".
That should count for something...no?

Plus, the seller has promised to prominently write "DO NOT BEND" on the mailer. I wouldn't want to spend $200 for a reproduction ticket and have it arrive in hammered shape...

I see no evidence that eBay has even the slightest concern about the massive amount of fraud that happens every day on its pages.

Ebay is like your local Attorney General office. They simply don't have the resources to pursue every fraudulent ahole out there. On a given day eBay has over 100 million items listed for sale on any day. No, they are not going to stop the presses every time someone tries to price gouge on a reprint baseball card.

On the autograph side, at one point in time, ebay did have the means to stop fraud. But then they realized that removing fraudulent items cost them money. So they decided that profits were more important than doing the right thing.
