Default Autographed Card Sold As Is

I've been working for several years on an autographed 1963 Fleer baseball set. Having gotten pretty close to complete (62/66), I decided to work on autographed 1960 and 1961 Fleer sets.

I have mostly stuck to authenticated and slabbed cards, but recently a couple auctions came up for raw, signed 1960 Fleer. The autos looked close enough to authenticated signatures that I took a chance and I ended up winning both Ernie Lombardi and Dazzy Vance. Vance would be a great pickup since he died in February of 1961 and, thus, there was a small window to actually get the card signed. I am going to send it in for authentication, but had a question.

The seller clearly stated that he had bought a large collection and marked the cards as be sold as is, without a COA. I am assuming that, if the card does not pass authentication, I just end up just taking the loss and using it as a lesson to stick to be less exuberant and stick to previously authenticated card. Correct?

With winning the card for $42 delivered and $93 for authentication and shipping, it would be a coup if it is authenticated, but a painful experience if it isn't.

The above special posted has nothing to do with signed cards.


It would be $25 for a psa/dna dual grade submission plus 18 return shipping.

I'd try the quick opinion for 10$ Even though the auction has ended they may render an opinion.

Could you show the cards here as many people here could give you an opinion that IMO is as reliable as any TPA.
Regarding the wording of the auction, I still think it depends on the auction venue. If it fails authentication eBay will often give you back your money regardless of the wording in his auction unless he clearly states it's a reprint and being sold that way. If there is any hint he is intimating that it is real, I think eBay will side with you. I have no idea about other sites' policies.

Forget it. I found the Vance
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1960-Fleer-D...p2047675.l2557

Edit: After looking at his completed auctions you should return them immediately. He has sold soooooooooooooo many fakes it is ridiculous. I mean come on he sold a Tommy Connolly 3x5 for $65. Really? $65. This guy is the Coaches Corner of eBay

I am sorry to tell you that the Vance is not even close to bring good . Educate yourself about Vance's signature because it is very commonly forged for someone in the middle of the spectrum of HOFers autographs . Also I have never seen a Fleer card signed by Vance that was good .
