Default Ashamed - Topps T206 Buy Back Fraud

To my fellow friends and hobbits,
I write these words with shame well there's no excuse for what I did. I've already spoken to Leon about this issue and he's been nothing but a friend. Some of those tops by bikes that sold we're putting holders by myself. And I truly apologize we're bringing shame to the Hobby and to myself. I am working with Leon on this issue and I will make full restitution. With that said I humble myself before you and and ask for your forgiveness.

Larry my old friend, how are you? I'm not sure what you meant by this line "Some of those tops by bikes that sold we're putting holders by myself."
Hope all is well, you were the first guy I ever bought a card from on Net54!

I guess this should read, some of those topps buy backs that sold were put in holders by myself.

I believe Larry is saying he had T206 cards, cleaned them up, then placed them in
Topps Buyback holders and sold them as such.

Is this written in sanskrit? I have no idea what any of it means, except that the OP is apologizing for something, right??

I didn't realize that they carried a premium. I have cut all of mine out to fit in binders.
