Default Battlefield0516 Auctions

Being relatively new here, I had not seen some of the threads questioning this seller and possibly Photoshopped scans on ebay. I purchased a '64 Yastrzemski from Battlefield on July 3. On initial glance everything looked just fine. I will go back and re-check and scan the card and provide the ebay photo and mine here for comparison. Last night, I won 9 cards in Battlefield Auctions and after finding more info on here and looking more closely at their feedback on ebay, I'm a little apprehensive. I will certainly provide scans on those once I receive them. I'm hoping for the best. But in retrospect, I was a bit uncomfortable with the photos/quality and no backs. But the Yaz only cost me $8.27 + shipping so I didn't have much invested. Last night's 9 cards totaled $330 including shipping. Time will tell and I'll be back to offer updates and scans.

He is one of the worst, just look at past feedback.

There is plenty of info on this seller - good luck but just reading eBay feedback should be enough to keep anyone away

Long thread on this sellers photoshop cards and repeat selling of same cards over and over

I just recently bumped up the thread nebboy posted above in hopes new to the hobby/site types see it.

I have never purchased anything from her (General consensus is it's a female) but I do watch/see occasionally, as I am searching for 52 Topps cards, some of her listings.
Her negative/neutral feedback is enough for me to stay far away!!

Like this one, I also watch to see if it comes back to her and gets relisted or if the buyer leaves negative feedback. Most times both happen!

Her name in the billing is Carolyn Battles. As I said, my first purchase of the '64 Yaz posed no problems. As I noted in my initial post, I noticed the feedback/negative threads AFTER I won the auctions last night. Since all was good with the Yaz, we'll see. If all goes well, I will report it as such and provide pics. Ditto if it does not.

Note: Photo with the blue background is the Ebay scan from Battlefield.

JenX, imo, the card you purchased does not look like the card she posted.

Her card has definitely been cleaned up some, imo. Note the corners, especially the top right and also the dot in the border on the left side (Yaz's right shoulder) Is that something that is just on your scanner or is it on the actual card?
The borders also look whiter, cleaned up in her pic compared to your's.
What was her description of the card, or do you still have the for sale/auction link?

Surprisingly, however, I thought it may be worse, but, imo, your card didn't need a lot of doctoring. Based on what I have read and heard, most of her cards have been doctored/photoshopped quite extensively.

Will look forward to the 63 Bombers Best. The one you posted has the bat neatly nestled in the nether region ( common),but there is a version where it seems airbrushed out. Pretty scarce.

Good luck

I think it is the same card. I could see where it may have been touched up a bit, but keep in mind the card in her scan is in a soft sleeve where mine is not. I'm going to try and re-scan mine in a sleeve to see what difference that makes.

The most glaring spots to me are print defects in the red banner at the bottom. If you will look at the bottom of the A in Carl there is a dot/eye and also along the top of the red banner between the "i" and "of". Those aren't as evident on the ebay scan, but you can see blemishes there. I've attached a photo and a scan in a sleeve. My guess is looking closely, there was likely some doctoring however minor. I won't hesitate to return the cards I bought last night if I see the same or worse.

I do appreciate your input and additional sets of eyes. Here is the original listing. I always assume a card is at least a grade or two lower than is described.

Your scan in the sleeve did clean it up some. You can barely notice that black spot/blemish in the border, but it is completely gone in her scan.

I didn't comment about those other spots as you can see them in both scans, albeit, her's are a little less noticeable.

I also believe it is the same card, but I guess there is a chance it isn't as I'm sure lots exist and of course shouldn't be too hard to find in that condition?

If it is, there is no doubt, imo, her's was cleaned up some. Either way, you didn't receive the same "looking" card as what she had for sale, and knowing her MO, one should not be surprised, no matter how little/subtle the changes, some changes were made.
