Default Questionable eBay seller?

Has anyone been following the auctions by eBay seller: jojo_asbury2012

I have been watching the auctions over the past 1–2 weeks, and they are selling some incredibly rare baseballs. Some of these baseballs are labeled as unknown mystery balls. They seem to be the ones that are the most rare and expensive. They are selling random movie stars and they can look those names up, but the famous baseball players they don’t have time to use Google? I have seen a few of these baseballs that have been sold and then relisted by another seller with TPA. Obviously this does not mean that they are authentic. They look pretty darn close to the real ones, so I am not sure but just seems rather fishy.

This is weird to me. No way I'm trusting a Turkey Stearnes or Babe Ruth, but the Bill Beckmann and Woody Davis match very nicely!

Love to hear what Chris thinks of the Jeter.

There is another seller out of Missouri that has been selling questionable inscribed baseballs for the past couple of years. I wonder if they are associated. Maybe there is less liability if they don’t say they know the name? They had a a Harry Caray and Cool Papa Bell inscribed balls a week or so ago, which were mystery balls with unknown titles. I mean come on really?! Currently, there are satchel Paige and Jesse Haines baseballs that are unknown mystery balls. Both inscribed.

this seller used to go by the moberly1983. They are bad news. Been noticing those baseballs for a few years now.

Yes. I was chided for asking the site about the Clark Griffith, Ben Shields and Pat Collins this seller had on eBay and was told to stop looking at this fake seller. I felt like an idiot and shut up about them after that. Thus, this site consensus was to ignore this seller (I passed up a Sandy Koufax I liked, listed as mystery ball - sold for $83).

Some of those balls sure do look good...I don't know. Has anyone done a quick opinion with either Beckett of PSA/DNA ?

I would like to hear what David Atkatz has to say about these. He adamantly told me/us on this very board to stop looking at these fakes from this fake seller. Told me to stop asking about them here on the board.

I did some more research and the seller has been known to peddle high-quality fakes. They have changed their name on eBay a few times. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that all of the high dollar baseballs are “unknown mystery balls “. That way they can’t get nailed for saying something is authentic or not. I am definitely staying away.

Not sure about why they list something's mystery and others not. I have seen them list Clark Griffith, Pat Collins names in title of listing. On the other hand I have seen them list Wade Boggs, Tom Glavine and Nolan Ryan as mystery. They started about three weeks ago. They had a LBJ and I Love Lucy multi-signed cast ball. Don't know about LBJ, but I liked the Lucy ball. It sold for $200 which I thought was a great deal. BTW, the Clark Griffith sold for $300. If it were real, that would have been a steal. As mentioned, it took me all of 30 seconds to Google some of the mystery balls I didn't recognize. Their process of listing is wierd. Again, I would like to hear from David or Chuck. They turned me off these fakes at the very beginning (when there were very few bidders). I sure hope I didn't miss some awesome deals. But that's why I trust the pros on this board. Casey

It would be interesting to see someone bid $600 for "rodeo legend" Lane Frost. That one has been up on listing from the very beginning

Love to hear what Chris thinks of the Jeter.
The "Jeter" sold by Ebay seller Jojo_asbury2012 is a forgery.
