Here's a response I received back when I asked him if his M101 of Jim Thorpe was real. He even gave me his full name ...

It's identical to every card I have sold from this set (other than the advertiser on the back as there are 10 different ones.) I have sold over 75 from this set in the last few years. All the Commons are gone and down to my last few stars, including a Ruth.

There sometimes will be a color difference on this set either black or a brownish tint can be found. Same reason, depends on who made it.
Hope that helps some.
Regards
Bob Forsyth

This appears to be the same guy. He's definitely not shy.

He also sent me a lower offer on the Thorpe ... just $155!

I find it interesting that he lists many of the cards as reprints but then selects certain cards to sell as “unknown” or original. Very strange mix.

My mistake: the card was graded GMA 10. Whatever that is...
I think GMA means that this seller wakes up every day and says, "Good Morning America! Can't wait to rip you off!"

Here's more from the seller. It sounds like he has quite a collection ...

I sent my lowest accepted offer price too if still interested.
If interested in some of the others from the set, (I think I have 4 up now) or I can send you a list of the ones not up yet and scans. The Ruth up now is my worst one, I have been debating selling my other one (different back), same with my Mr Joe Jackson. I collect both of these players myself and Cobbs.
Note able others off the top of my head are Alexander, Smokey Joe Wood, Casey Stengel, Buck Weaver & a few more.
Always best to get all at once to save on shipping & I can go to my lowest acceptable price without even asking for it.
Have a great day.
Bob

PS:
I have one other Thorpe card, but not from this set. It is from the 1933 Goudey Sport Kings set. Also have 3 others from that set, Bobby Jones (golf), Ty Cobb and my favorite Babe Ruth card.

Amazing how this guy has all the great cards from each set, but none of the commons.

You have to admit, it's hilarious.... he has (7) of M101 Jacksons for sale, better hurry, only ONE left....

The one ripped-off buyer was incorrect. The GMA slab was not opened and resealed with a reprint. GMA disclaims evaluation of authenticity on their "website" - they are happy to grade the reprint as if it were original. They have even graded photocopies as the actual card.

I can't believe this! The negative rating that this clown received has been taken down. He now has a 100% feedback score, and there is no sign of this negative feedback. What is the point of a feedback system if ebay allows negative feedback to be removed? 100% MY ASS!

None of you has a life. What a shame.
